One thing you NEED to look out for are the ones that are labeled A. Testoni Basics--I ordered a couple pairs of these and they are made in Morocco I believe, really bad quality. Leather felt plasticky like a $200 retail shoe, not a $500 shoe. Since Testoni goes on Gilt so often and I've never seen this "Basic" line before, I'm assuming it's a made for Gilt "special" product. Either way, FWIW, I returned both pairs of calfskin oxfords that I boguht. I'd be wary of the Gilt Testoni sales, especially looking out for the origin on the item description. I suspect the Italian ones are the ones that everyone is familiar with, and the imported ones are all "Basics"
