Does the Ferragamo Studio Line still exist? How do I resole Ferragamo rubber soles?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I've recently started on the high end shoe band wagon and really like the styling of SF.  Did some lurking here and it seems everyone agrees that there are three lines Tramezza, LO, and Studio.  However, every thread I've seen is at least one year old and the prices people are quoting are no where near right.  

 

I was in a retail store today and it seems like there is still Tramezza and LO, but everything else is unmarked.  No "Studio" inside.

 

Tramezza ~850 +

 

LO ~ 600 - 800

 

Unmarked ~500 - 700

 

I just bought a pair of unmarked on sale for $400

 

http://www.ferragamo.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/TopCategories_31150_35551#/product/27661_sale/6148914691233376808/497176

 

I got few questions about these:

 

1. Are these what people consider studio?

2. How badly am I over paying for these shoes?

2. How long can I expect them to last assuming I wear them three times a week?

 

I also bought a pair of these with a rubber sole

1. Does anyone else have ferragamo's with their one piece rubber sole?  How hard is it to get it resoled when it wears? 

2. Can any shoe repair place do it or do I have to go somewhere specific?

 

Thanks

Bump.

Welcome to Styleforum. Plenty of gents here wear Ferragamo. Hopefully they will ring in on this soon for you.

Studio was just the name of a line that they had and they were not inferior. I've had a few pair in the past.

The soles are easily replaced by some local shoemaker but I wouldn't worry about that now. One of the  Ferrigamos  I  had with a vibram sole has never worn out or even shown signs of any real wear.

The prices you paid are fine and they are both top quality and good looking shoes.

thanks for the reply.  It seems as a newbie when you search about SF here, everyone hates on Studio because it's "a glue job".  It was a little disheartening to see that my brand new "most expensive shoes I ever bought" was looked down on.  

 

Looking forward to learn a lot more from this community.  Thanks.!

^Isn't just about every rubber-soled shoe, irrespective of maker, a "glue job"? I have three pairs of rubber-soled Ferragamos (not sure if they are Studio line or what), and they are most excellent shoes. I have never experienced any separation of the glued rubber soles, which I have experienced with Allen-Edmonds shoes, although I have probably used the latter (some of them, anyway) harder.

I'm interested to know if the Studio line still exists too. I was in a Ferragamo outlet in Switzerland, and there didn't seem to be anything there that said Studio on it.

About 3-4 years ago, I bought a pair of penny loafers similar to the first pair you linked. I've never worn them anywhere close to 3 times per week, so I can't say how well they might hold up under that volume of use. But, I've worn them periodically (probably more like once a month) and haven't had any durability issues. I've kept shoe trees in them and they still look quite good.

As others have said, I think $400 is reasonable for Ferragamos.
