In addition, although I'm no expert in construction, I don't see anything special about Tramezzas, specifically my Accentos since that is what I have first hand experience with. I also find the leather used for my Accento model substandard (for $700+ shoes). My shoes creased like crazy the first time I walked in them, and they have this "dry" quality, even after I conditioned and polished them. The coloring cracked and it looked pretty bad. They're a bit better now with all the cream I put on them.
OK, fair point.
I saw a tramezza (lit. partition) as the shoe stitched across the toe cap, creating the partition, or division.. I'm not expert on the construction; I didn't know they were made differently. If they are made differently, they could, I suppose , be better than another form in construction quality. However, I understood the thread starter to be referring to the style, which is subjective.
