These are awsome (hope you don't mind me using your pics, OP:


This shoes is fantastic with jeans and with classic suit. I noticed that in the U.S. and Britain do not like the shoes with the tip high and long, whereas in Italy very much.

This is a prototype, and was not used special leather.

I agree. The videos are great, more pictures are good too Although those first shoes may not be my style I think they look great. The more classic ones I would wear. Your father has talent.

Beautiful shoes, it's obvious you and your father take great pride in what you do.

That welt is something else!

I do want to commend you for being receptive to other ideas / styles - it'd be easy to just say "no, we only make this kind of shoe" but broadening out from that is, I think a, step that speaks highly of your family's professionalism and quality!

If I understand you, I take that as a compliment. I like to talk about what is the story of my family. All our parts have a relative who makes shoes, but almost no one makes shoes that "special" ...

You can tell the quality of them just by the look

I quite like the Art. 2011 ones, although at present I tend to wear the thin soled contemporary style of smart shoes.

I really like seeing anything that's handmade in Europe and all my shoes are handmade in Italy, a lot of them being Paul Smith. Im glad people like your dad still exist in todays disposable world.

I've never seen Paul Smith shoes, but I noticed the care you have for the quality this evening if I can load the site in English, and I hope to put photos of the fantastic shell cordovan of Illinois arrived Saturday.

Simple video with three different type construction for quality handmade shoes.
Goodyear simple and elegant. (the welt is needlework symmetrically )
Norwegian inconfodible and special. (there is not welt)
Bentivegna indestructible. (the welt is needlework a-symmetrically)

actually these reminds me of the Harris Barneys New York carry, not my cup of tea, though I can see it works well for some, especially for denim.

People like gaudy,
that what sells well.
This shoe maker has vision.
Even John Lobb catching on now to gaudy.

The shoe maker say it best here:

No.
Goyser have feather.
Norvegese and Bentivegna have no feather (upper to insole is done very different).
