oh! yes, that shoe is the bishop santoni fam.
punch captoe wholecut with medallion. brown shoe with lighter yellowish brown toebox.
actually that santoni shoe is not an official FAM. i heard it is a classic shoe goodyear welted priced at around 800. alot of the classic goodyearwelts sometimes have the handwritten signature inside and some just have the regular SANTONI stamp.
bishop was discontinued and i tried to locate this shoe with nordstrom and they are completely sold and no more. yes, i heard they did went to 50% off.
but what i am looking at are the true tan sock U.S. line FAMs that are priced 950. i heard from a few salesmen (maybe misinformed) that they NEVER go on sale.
anyone know otherwise? that would be AWESOME if these 950 models do go on sale at least even 30% off.
I have not seen a single pair of Santoni FAMs at any of the local Nordstroms including South Coast Plaza.
south coast is the only nordstrom in southern california that REGULARLY carries FAM at the store. other stores you have to order them.
currently at the scp nordy (yesterday) , they have the acorn colored chisel moc toe derby, the dark brown captoe with medallion, and the one that I want to get: the burnished brown algonquin toe derby. one of the most beautiful shoes i have ever seen in person here where I live.
$950 ...too much. the shoe is spectacular. should i just get it? credit card of course. maybe i should just get it and relieve myself of the torture and dreams every night for the past year and probably future.
