Well, comfort is a subjective thing, so I would probably be better served by allowing the customers of mine who have both A/E and Ferragamo to compare; if they see this. I carry Allen Edmonds at the shop, they are half my business, but I will say that the Martegani are an upgrade in quality of uppers, outsoles, and, IMO, construction. Allen Edmonds has a great insole, the best I've seen. Comfort is more often than not the result of fit over materials, so you really need to try to see. The Martegani shoes I do are certainly more elegant, without any sacrifice in fit or quality - quite a few of my A/E customers have purchased Martegani shoes this season. There is no obligation to try; I'll cover the return postage if you would like to see them, and decide they are not for you in fit, or otherwise.How would they compare with Allen-Edmonds or Ferragamo when it comes to comfort
I'll let you know when I hear back from them. What do you wear comfortably now?How and where do I get a pair to try on for size in Hong Kong?.?.??
Allen-Edmonds does make wingtips. I would agree with you, however, that they're lacking a bit of elegance.That sounds excellent. I should pick up a pair this week. I really loved those wingtips, and I love a good pair of wingtips in general. That's the problem with AE, they don't make wingtips (that I'm aware of), and while I do like their build, they are just ugly as hell, IMHO, and they look cheap to me.
I have a single pair of both AEs and Marteganis (dark brown captoes with the "Iron" finish) in my business shoe rotation (about one wearing per week). Â I've had the AEs for about 12 months and the Marteganis for about 3 months, and it always takes me a couple months to settle into a new pair of shoes no matter how good they are. Â The Marteganis are breaking in nicely and I'm quite confident that they'll be just as comfortable as my AEs. Â The last shape and finishing on the Marteganis is much nicer than the AEs, though. Â And you should take Ron up on his offer to ship shoes to you for sizing purposes.Well, comfort is a subjective thing, so I would probably be better served by allowing the customers of mine who have both A/E and Ferragamo to compare; if they see this.
Ok, no problem - if you could, please tell me what model/size you wear in A/E. With this information, as well as which Martegani model you like, I will be able to suggest size. If I am wrong, and you are not comfortable, there is no obligation on your part. PM me if you wish and we can take care of you.I don't understand the sizing thing and how that works. Could you explain that bit
Borgioli - now we are getting somewhere. Could you please tell me the model number? If you have the box, you can give me all the numbers and I will know what last, and how the sizes run. If not, there is a 5 digit number inside the shoe that will also tell me what I need to know. Again, PM me, if you like, and I can translate things fine.Rider, I have medium width feet (C/D) and take US9.5/UK8.5/EU43 in virtually every brand of shoe..... Gucci, Zegna, Church's, Harris, Santoni, Rossetti Flexa, Borgioli
I know...I am pretty new to doing anything with the computer besides email and such. It's taken awhile to get to posting pictures properly, and I'm still not happy with the appearence of the site. Not being a dedicated web seller, and being a one man operation as far as my shoe business is concerned, I often get side-tracked during the day. I've sort of been nominated to do the rest of the site as well, and I wish I were better at it. And, as you know from talking to me, I am concerned with the shoe business, as that is my game. Really, I am taking the pics for the other departments and waiting for someone to step up and properly describe the items in a way they should. I can tell you every little thing about my shoes, but not a whole lot about Brioni ties, for example.BTW Rider, the changes made to the website (somewhat) recently look good... I would suggest a few more updates though, like making all the thumbnails the same size, adding information for the suitings section (rather than just picture/price), etc.
