those santoni's are moe of a 9 and the creasing they have (along with the fade of the words) is consistent with at least a wearing or two.

Ed (and others), how does the Santoni marked sizing correspond to US sizing? These are evidently marked 8. Is a Santoni 8 a US 9 or would it be a 9.5? One other question: I've seen this Baird model before, but also a Fritz model that looks the same. What's the difference?

strange how they have so much sweat smear on the inside but not a scratch on the outsole. dude probably wore them around his house for a month, thinking about returning them

the thing about the handwritten insole , the handwriting is in an ink that smears easily. i have seen alot of fams with the ink smeared like that that are still new in box at stores. i have a pair that smeared like that only after 2 or 3 wears, but can also smear like that after 2 or 3 try-ons in store IF the customer had damp,perspiring socks.

santoni fam sizing is in US but is runs half large. or whole size large according to Ed.
these bairds i have handled before and they , for me , run half size large so i have to go down half size. they actually run about 8.5 D these specific ones. a US 9D according to Ed.

the difference is substantial between these and the 'fritz' model (actually , i am sure you are talking about the 6928 model, not the fritz, as fritz is a 'fam' goodyear modeled after the 6928 tan serrated fam).

the baird comes in a different last shape, has goodyear as oppsed to the 6928 norvogese , or 'reverse welt' according to a harris. also the 6928 comes in a hand-antiqued leather. also , the 6928 model shoe does not have a seam between vamp and quarters like the baird.

see the differences :

baird 'fam' goodyear model:



6928 ,popularly misnamed as 'fritz'






the baird is a very nice shoe , very substantial and a great shoe to have at the 500 price range .i would not pay full retail which runs 850 +-.

the baird is in the same 'fam' goodyear family as the bishop:




both non serrated fam insoles. 'fam' goodyear models. there are the regular classic goodyears and the richer goodyears with these insoles.

please stop posting these pix of Bairds because - as the Jesuits use to say - "it is an occasion of sin".

I guess the "JM Weston box" in the heading is to snare folks searching for Weston shoes? If so, that's a bunch of bullsh*t
