Stefano-Bi was founded by Stefano Branchini and later sold (in part or in whole) to LVMH. Â It now produces the high-end shoes for any of the LVMH labels: Berluti, Loewe, and maybe others (I don't visit designer boutiques often). Â StefanoBi also made some of Borrelli's shoes at one time. Â It has a narrow distribution channel, and in my opinion, getting their shoes outside Europe just doesn't make sense as the prices are marked up so high. Â Vacca sells them at $1000/pair, the Japanese list them at $1500/pair (at least). Â I have seen StefanoBi in Paris for about 500 Euro. Â The only special orders the StefanoBi factory takes are through Berluti (and of course they will be labelled as such). Those shoes on eBay are very nice, but nothing jaw-dropping. Â However, the leather they use is very supple, more so than any others I have tried. Â StefanoBi should fit close to Mantellassi (in my experience), ie, if you wear Mantellassi 10, then StefanoBi 10. Â For further reference, I wear Lobb 7000 size 9, Mantellassi/StefanoBi 9.5. Â Hope that helps.
