So these aren't actually all that nice - I'd say Buttero makes nicer shoes than F+B and sells at a similar price point - but they look like a fun opportunity to channel your inner swashbuckler, be it intergalactic or maritime.
I love F+B and have 6 or more varieties of their boots and shoes. I fit and feel is very Italian and I think the quality is great. The style of F+B is pretty unique, much more so than anything listed by Buttero in their current product offerings.
I've been eying that exact boot model for over a year but in normal black leather as suede isn't my thing. Waiting for it to go on sale! Eventually they will be mine . . .
If only that pair on sale was the regular leather. For anyone who digs suede I think that F+B boot at the listed sale price is an awesome deal.
