StefanoBi Hompage is now up... in French.

Some marvelous shoes there.

Many colors and some two tone shoes.

Looks Like I found a new company to pick at.

Very Nice.

The three pair on the introductory page are the most attractive, and don't even appear from the same stock as the more aggressive looks in the fall-winter collection.

Domenico Vacca has an excellent selection of StefanoBis.

A few looked borderline fugly to me, and the rest...nothing special.

Oh dear... most of those are fugly

The derby in the Bologna collection is quite nice, though.

StefanoBi is certainly no forum favorite. Having seen a few of these shoes in person, however, I'm willing to swim against that tide. I agree with koji that some of the shoes in the Bologna line are nice. The Norwegian-welted adelaide "Derby Bi-Matiere 5 oeillets" in particular could be stunning with a more subtle color contrast (the two different leathers are enough).

The shoes that Vacca carries are, by and large, quite attractive to my eye--especially the reverse-stitched models.

Just browsed the collection...one or two I'd actually think about purchasing. The rest are out of a cheap Jersey shoe shop nightmare.

The site, perhaps, does itself no favors. It seems to me the models actually carried in stores may, on the whole, be more attractive. Here are the StefanoBi shoes in my collection (again, all thrifted in San Francisco, CA USA):
This one has no markings in the shoe; only the StefanoBi logo and Vero Norvegese stamped on the bottom. Based on the styling and Norwegian construction, my guess would be that these are Vacca shoes.









These last two are sort of a mirror image. On the first the split-toe is sewn, as usual, on the outside. On the second it's sort of turned inside-out. I prefer the second. It's a beautiful and unusual effect.

Yes, that's the reverse-stitched model that I was referring to.
