Yes, channelled soles too. I would say that the leather is slightly less quality than the Napoli Couture/SF Tramezza. Considering that you can get these on ebay for 150 or so, sometimes less, the case can be made that these are the best value of the lot.

Can you rate the quality from the photos?

These are the number 5 on my list. At under $200 and closer to $150, great, great buy. Better than what you are going to get in the same price range (Allen Edmonds, Loake etc) Above $200 you are in Tramezza, Napoli Couture territory.

Not to be confused with number 47 on the list, the Z Zegna shoes, which are major crapola. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Ermenegildo-...QQcmdZViewItem

Zegna's equivalent to Ferragamo's Studio line. Plastique leather.

I have a pair of Ferragamo studio line chocolate suede boots that I've worn for six years and are still running strong. Though, I must admit, I'm ready to upgrade the style. Where is EG in London again?

Did anyone here read the latest issue of GQ magazine? There is a pair of E Zegna black lace-up. How's the quality of that pair? It's retailing for $435.

Stimulated by the talk of Zegna footwear (ooer), I was just about to go and get my unworn pair of Zegna couture suede shoes to wear today but then realised that I'm meant to be helping a friend move house today. Where are those 'roughing it' clothes that I put aside...?

I tried this pair of Zegna at Neiman Marcus the other day. It has that Patte a Mano logo on the sole and the colour of the sole is beige. What do you guys think? Is this pair of shoes worth $395?

The shoes you tried on are likely Mantellasis - these are not they.

The pair of shoes you tried on, if they did say Fatte a Mano, are probably worth 395 if they fit you well and you really like them, as they are very well-made.

Read Ed's post above. Good buy at < $200. They are not Mantellassi made, which retail for $600-$700.

I have a pair of Zegna bluchers with "fatte a mano" inscribed on the sole. Although they look nice, the leather on some areas began having minute cracks like it dried up. I do not know how this happened.

Yes, the pair that I tried does have Patte a Mano inscribed on the sole of the beige sole. The fit was pretty good and I want to get it, but if you guys don't think it's worth the $395, then I think I'll go for something else. Btw, did anyone here tried the Lidfort shoes made for Barney? It retails for almost $600 after tax.

Reviving this thread, as I happened into a Zegna store and fell in love with a pair of their couture shoes. They seem very well made to my naked, yet inexperienced eye. They read goodyear welted on the sole and have three nails near the front, as well as three x's near the logo. Is the consensus still that they're fairly well made shoes? Price point is a grand, which doesn't seem to have changed much since 2006.

They feel a little tight around the widest part of my foot (i.e., just behind the toes)...is that something that I assume should stretch or will this be a problem down the line? Length is right and otherwise they feel great on my feet.

My other dress shoes are Goodyear welted Paraboots or Louis Vuitton loafers (moved on from the latter, thankfully).
