Beautiful color on those boots. When Santoni gets it right, they are hard to beat.

Exactly. :nodding:

Used to love them. Recently requested instructions from them for shipping one of my pairs for refurbishment, as I have done in the past. The response from someone at Santoni USA was rather surprising:

>worked with and can help with the needed repairs and resoling of the
>shoes.

Basically, Santoni products are now officially disposable. Pity, really.

Bit of an overstatement, really.  Just because they won't refurbish them doesn't mean they can't be refurbished.

iznljca,

Any good shoemaker will be able to work on them without a hitch. You'd probably be saving tons of money too, refurbs used to cost at least 3-4 times what a reputable cobbler would be have been charging, and this was when they stopped offering the service 3 years ago. I'm sure it would have been more now.

picked these up recently and really wished they fit me like my Knox shoes. incredible quality, but just a tad too small despite being the same size as the Knox.

Nice! :slayer:I bought them in a store called "El Palacio de Hierro". Don't know if there are sizes still available but for the price it's worth taking a look. Also, I got that price cause I have the credit card of the store. They were originally marked down with 50% and I got an aditional 15% cause of the card, so if you have a relative in here that is a card holder ask them to go with you and buy them. 

 

In what part of Mexico City are you going to be? I ask cause not all the sotres carry Santoni. The ones in the south of the City doesn't have Santoni.

I have a pair of Santoni boots. A bit concerned about the creasing on the vamp on the left foot. The right foot is a tada bigger and there is no creasing to be seen. They fit nor loose nor tight. Is this an indication that the boots are too big?
