Evening chaps. Having a dry spell at the moment but came across these earlier after fluttering my eyes at the shop manager to see what shoes they had in the back:
Since they were cheap, seemed decent quality and my size I thought I would take a chance. I've not heard of the maker before; seems they are made by Calzoleria Harris who make (made?) shoes in Florence. Their website looks a bag of shite so wondering if the company is still going anymore. What English shoemaker would they be comparable with? Does the wording in the shoe tell me anything about what quality they might be?
Thanks in advance.
Wanted to get a word in before it gets lost in the other conversation. I grabbed a pair of these (same maker, different model) for much the same reasons. Decent quality, Italy, condition. Quick search around shows these shoes retail ~$3-500 at places like Barneys NY and occasionally went on sale at Marshalls for $150-200. What I can't figure out is if Calzoleria Harris is the same as Harris Shoes, but as far as I can tell yes, and they're still in business. If someone else knows more than I, I'd love to learn more myself.
Mine are too big for me, so trying to flip. Still haven't gotten much love on Ebay for them at all in 4 months. But if yours fit you and you like wearing them, it seems like you did pretty well.
