I live in Europe so here Italian Shoes are quite common... I saw several shoe porn threads and wanted to add mine... these are not high end shoes, but good quality hand made Italian shoes every man can buy and actually wear...
So here they go !

Moreschi Brown Bluchers




Boss Natural bluchers




Pakersons Natural Oxfords





Pakersons Black Oxfords




Naviboot Natural Bluchers Captoes

Some of the cap toes look a bit exaggerated to me.

Actually these are superbly hand made calfskin italian shoes that sell here for around $170 but you can get them for under $100 when on sale.

The pakersons are really wonderful, fit like a glove and really gorgeous... I can't understand why some people pay $600 or more for the same kind of shoes in the US, only for the label on them ?

I agree, those Naviboot captoes are kind of exaggerated...

Look at these, they are more trendy takes on classics (exaggerated maybe)... are good to wear them with slim suits and are the kind you'd see in GQ labelled at $500+, here you get them for under $100

This Brand Ralph Harrison have two product lines
English style goodyear welted shoes and italian style trendy slim shoes.

Ralph Harrison "golf" wingtips



Look at the hybrid soles

They're classic looks with a slight Italian edge. It seems for the price paid that you came out ok.

Forzieri even has an Amazon store, so their shoes are available (at full price) there as well.

Lakewolf, do you use shoe trees?

Anyone know when a shoe can actually labelled "hand made"? is there a given percentual amount of handwork required or is it sufficent when e.g. only the leather is cut by hand.
