Handmade Shoes - Page 12

post #166 of 194
Purchased these in Zagreb and the store declared them handmade. They have been worn approximately 20 times and I have not polished them yet. Not sure what to polish them with, perhaps a clear or dark brown. Not knowing enough about leather or overall quality I can only say they are extremely comfortable but probably not as durable as AEs and the like.

Croatia has a number of good handmade cordwainers like Sukar. They are Blake though - not Goodyear - which illustrates the nearby Italian influence.

Can't you make something that is not ginormous biggrin.gif ?

I know that bontivegna and norvegese are by definition 'bulky' but your shoes are super bulky, even the goodyears are crazy bulky

I am sure some people like the style but for me they are too loud, and without a strong designer brand name I would think it difficult to find a large enough market willing to part with a large sum for such loud shoes.

I know this will sound disrespectful but is not meant to be-. They look a little like clown shoes to me

they're thick, fur-lined winter boots. Would look stupid with a thinner sole or sleeker last.

that is a nice shoe but way overpriced.

I am always amazed at how much santoni fams like those go for. Given what else is on offer I wouldn't contemplate buying them for more than 50% of MSRP

Also I think they are on the wrong thread. From what he has in his online shop I think the only way pierigiacomi would ever consider those shoes would be to get a size 10 and a size 11 and then use a presser to get a 10.5 double sole, double upper, double everything icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Exactly, and I think the soles are beautiful. Again, the leather that looks like it was skinned from a tyrannosaurus rex and the 2 tone design puts it a bit over the top for me.

These are really nice. Not yet up on your ecommerce site! Also, browsing through you photostream i see you also do women's shoes. Do you have any women's boot prototypes?

Cheers

I really like that boot. I love it when this thread comes back up because it means there are more awesome and fun shoes to look at. They just challenge your preconceptions of shoes, and I do really appreciate that.
post #178 of 194
Very nice pictures, a bit too classical for my style though. Looks like a Norvegese construction if I'm not mistaken, which usually takes more hard work than other models.

Best of luck with your small business buddy, although starting at $500 a pair.. I'm not sure how will you be able to compete with other iconic fatte a mano brands, offered almost at the same price range..

In this moment we have no time for woman shoes, but we have some prototypes, I think we restart "Woman shoes" in next year.
E-commerce site is not definitely, but we are working to complete it before Christmas.

Tomorrow I will go to Malaga for job and next week we can post another model of boot.

E.P.

Here are a few of our favorite selections out of the 650 Santoni pairs that just arrived!

Find more Santoni selections at ShopTheFinest.com.
SANTONI
These are unique products, handcrafted by master shoemakers who passionately devote the same care every day and give equal attention to each of the amazing stages, from the creation of the wooden formers, the genesis of the article, continuing through to the polishing and thorough final inspection.
The manual cutting of the leather, the hand stitching, in different styles of footwear, the use of fine leathers even for the whole insole, the choice of the best materials (from rubber to cork, to three-dimensional and innovative synthetic mixtures, such as Vibram), together with time and knowledge of shapes, make each creation an excellent product.
