I picked up a pair of "Alexander" shoes from a store that was being liquidated today. The liquidators told us the shoes were $150, which was lower than than $190 at cost price the business had purchase them. I managed to get him down to $125 (Canadian $). The shoes appear to be good quality: leather soles, good craftsmanship, not a glue job. For the price, I am very happy with them. However, I am admittedly new to good shoes. What I can tell so far is: They have a webpage with limited information in Italian: http://www.alexandershoes.it/ita/ They used to make shoes for Borelli They appear to be hand made in Italy (I've tried searching and this is all I've come up with) Does anyone know anything else? Is this good value? Thanks!
