    I've never heard of Nettleton shoes before.

    Just saw them in the latest Ben Silver catalog:

    Look like quality shoes, and they even have a Whiskey Cordovan option.

    Made in Belgium, which I find odd. (Haven't ever seen a Belgian shoe before.)

    Nettleton was a high-end American manufacturer of men's shoes that left the market in 1984.
    It has apparently been revived with off-shore high cost production- Belgium isn't cheap.
    The near-iconic Belgian loafers have been a favorite in the US for decades:

    We just placed an order for to carry them in our shop. They are VERY high quality and offer a special make up program too. They are working on a Bepoke service also.
