My amateur photography cannot match the quality of the NMWA product shots, but I think everyone appreciates more pics and more information.
I have to say, I think the Barbanera shoes are a total sleeper pick. I can comfortably say that they are at least as nice as my shoes from Carmina, and probably nicer. The finishing is amazing, and the softly beveled waist is a very nice touch. The leather is glowing out of the box, and all the details are very neat.
For those of you who don't like the pointy toeboxes of most high end dress shoes, you may find these perfect. The slightly rounded toe is counterbalanced by the tight waist, which probably contributes to the robust arch support on these shoes, as well as the subtly elegant last. These are seriously comfortable right out of the box. I thought I would never be a fan of the U-cap, but it has grown on me and I think it is the perfect mix of classic American and European styling.
I can highly recommend these to anyone, and at the price right now they are the biggest steal of the sale. If you are on the fence, don't miss out on these.
