Santoni Shoe Appreciation Thread - Page 30

post #436 of 474
Santoni Quisp. I found these at Nordstrom Rack for $390, down from $1,350. This is a Goodyear line shoe. Today is their first outing!

A note on polishing: I was petrified to polish the streaked finish. However, the finish didn't change in any discernable way after I applied light brown Collonil cream and light brown wax. I didn't use a cleaner/conditioner like renovateur to prep the leather.

Columbia, MD (Columbia Crossing). Seems like they were a rare main-store item that ended up at the Rack. All the other shoes were the usual -- Aldo, Cole Haan, Steve Madden, and some scattered AE. I saw these sitting on the shelf and couldn't believe my eyes.

Good fit?

Initially, no. These are high-volume shoes, designed for people with regular or high arches. I have very flat feet, so there was a bit of space over the arch. I added tongue pads, and that solved the problem.

Thanks for the reply. I will be in that area in June for the jazzfest. I will plan on going to that Rack:nodding:

Guys what do you think about these Santoni shoes for casual wear:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

 

 

 

 

Those would be my first leather shoes. I am planning to wear the with jeans, maybe shorts, during summer, and all year around.

Are the Santoni 'Turner' penny loafers worth the $600 price tag? Does anyone here own a pair? How have they held up?

I'd argue no. For reasons that they are the lower end style from them with rubber sole; and more importantly you should be able to find them at discount time to time. For say 30-50% off.

I'm sure they are super comfy though.

Actually, although Nordstrom's website has it listed as rubber soles, the Turner has a leather sole.  You can see it in the pictures online, as well as from descriptions on other retailers' sites. Based on your response though, I suspect you still feel they are overpriced at 600?

 

Where do you suppose I'd find these at 30-50% off, and when?

 

Thanks!!
