So, I saw Kiton Shoes for the very first time...

All I can say is WOW. Unbelieveable.

I saw 'em at Saks 5th Avenue; Short Hills Mall, New Jersey.

Simply Incredible Quality. Of course, I was told that the price point was at 2,220 dollars...


These are the ones I liked the best:




Now I have to compare these to Lattanzi...

Then Again, I saw a pair of Santoni Handmade Collection for 'only' 600-700....

How about these:





I wonder who copied who??

Bontoni's for $895 full retail at Wilkes Bashford in SF.

WOW, that's practically a lawsuit waiting to happen like what Berluti did by suing copies.

Don't forget . . . these shoes, will last you forever. For a younger man, who can get them on sale . . . they really are a bargain. I have shoes from 25 years ago. All I've done to them, is to replace their heels. Actually, my old shoes are my favorites. They were running around 280$, back then. I always bought them, on sale.

Well one is Edwardian (or whatever Kiton calls Edwardian) and the other Chestnut.

I like the coloring of the Bontoni's better, and the price. But both shoes are awesome...just amazing.

I agree, much nicer color and reasonable price. Also, much more versatile than the blonde Kiton due to that color.

Kiton has them available in a similar color and they're gorgeous.

Neither originated the style I'm sure. And the Kiton shoe line came out before the Bontoni line.

The Kiton shoes' last and skins are nicer than the Bontonis. But unless I could get them for JL/EG prices I'd rather pay a little more to get bespoke.

I've yet to see anyone else in California wear these sorts of shoes.

The Bontoni shoe is nice but not as good in quality as Kiton.

I really do like brown wholecuts, but not a whole lot of broguing. They're never a great price though. :-/

I would take Kiton over Bontoni.

But, for the price point; Bontoni over Kiton.

Kiton shoes are fine looking but the price does get in the way.
