I don't have experience with that particular shoe, but I do own one pair of black label Testoni's. Â However, they retailed between 6-700, whereas the shoes you linked retail for much more. First off, that price isn't great. Â Testoni's regularly go on sale for 50% off at their botique, and they have a decent selection. Â Even the Testoni's that I bought from Bluefly were more heavily discounted than the ones you linked. Â I think they were 50-60% off, then a 20% off sale, then 15% off coupon. Second, I haven't been thrilled with the leather. Â I bought these shoes two years ago, and have only worn them a few times for short amounts of time, ie to the opera or to a graduation, etc. Â I think I took good care of them, considering how seldom I wore them. Â Anyway, I took them out of the closet to shine them, and noticed that the leather seemed very dry. Â Hard to explain...just feel like the polar opposite of supple. Â I don't have a whole lot of experience with fine shoes, but I can hardly believe that the leather on these shoes is from the same animal as my newly acquired EG's, Handmade J&M's, heck, even my old Ferragamo's. Â In fact, I haven't had a shoe in my whole life look as poorly as these do. Â Perhaps any fault is amplified because my shoes are a light brown, but still, they just don't FEEL nice. I'm going to put some cream on them, and then shine them...hopefully, that will bring back the life. Â Needless to say, I'm disappointed. Â If I hadn't gotten such a great deal on them, I would be outright mad. I don't know much about construction, but they seem to be built nice enough, lightweight too. However, the stitching is noticibly less fine than the EG's, and of course the J&M's. Like I said above, I can't say anything with any certainty because the shoes you linked seem to be of a nicer leather and retail for more, but I would pass on those shoes.
