Thanks for the 'heads up' on the lotioning antirabbit.

Just like you said, my Canali's were thirsty.
Whew!

Yeah, its kind of strange, no other shoes I own do this. You give them what they need and they will look good for a long long time.

Thanks for the yoox resource! I thought I may have to go back to Rome for them.

BTW as far as caring for the shoes never use any sort of saddle soap or other soap on them. I ruined a pair that way.

Moreover as with all leather you do have to watch out for salt.

Antirabbit what do you use for the shoes? I use meltonians for the brown shoes and just any black kiwi for the blacks.

Hi i have had a pair of these shoes for 5 years i wear them once a week on average and store them on a shelf in the laundry so no fancy storage here! They are great!! The leather does not crease or fade and they still fit very well.

In terms of quality i rate them better than some other much better known brands such as Bally etc... which i have.

Any idea where i can buy them online?

Thanks,

Thomas

Stemar just started selling online, no Limited Editions showing yet but they are probably coming soon http://www.stemarshoes.com

Just bumping this thread - for those who own Campanile shoes, how do they fit? I was thinking of buying a pair but they only have a 44, not a 43.5 (which is what I usually wear). Thanks.

ebayhtl, if you are able to try them on in person do so. Bring thick socks and perhaps thin leather inserts with you to see if that will be enough to correct the half size difference. I also concur that their leathers demand more frequent lotioning than my other shoes. Strange that many of us are having the same experience with our thirsty Campaniles / Canali's. They are very well made and of solid quality.

Hello -

 

I had purchased a pair of Campanile Chelsea ankle high boots the last year I lived in Italy in 1997 and I am still wearing them (albeit with wear and tear).  Great quality shoes!

 

Cheers

Campanile had a similar recent history as the infamous Borrelli. Company went burst due to accounting / financial mingling then there was some sort of management buy out and the new production I have seen in person is not the same has the one I always bought until 2003 circa. I used to buy directly at their factory shop and it was a great deal. When I got my last pair resoles at Kokos in London few years ago they commented on how good they were built, unfortunately they had some serious snow/salt and fast drying damaged and started to crack at the creases so not worn anymore.
