    Totally agree, I would rather get Aurum then two G&G and EG ( If I have the money)

    I'm not sure if they were made during the Meccariello period, but even if they were, they wouldn't have been made *by* Antonio, just to his instructions.

    From the shoes itself it really hard to assure if this pair were made during the Meccariello period,only from the patina effect can get some clues alike,but still can not sure,I think only Antonio Meccariello himself can check this pair of KITON shoes were made during his previous KITON times or not,haha!

    antonio has set up the kiton shoe department. has helped with / done the designs, headed the shoemakers. if you know when these were bought (assuming they are not a recebt ebay or outlet purchase, but bought in a kiton shop or menswear store carrying kiton) he will be able to tell weather these were made during his time with kiton. i don't think he will be able to say that he handled them personally.

    Thank you, sir! I can only imagine what the final pair will look like if just the trial shoes look that nice!

    On another note, Meccariello has to be one of the best deals in fine footwear right now. €650 for main line MTO, €300 for trial shoes, and €130 for shipping means for €1,080 total you get a really nice pair of GYW test shoes on par with entry-level Santoni and a fantastic pair of handwelted shoes with finishing nicer than RTW G&G and EG costing more for just one RTW GYW pair.

    Are his test shoes goodyear-welted or handwelted? I find it surprising he would invest in goodyear machinery and supplies just for test shoes, and I know Italians sometimes refer to handwelted as goodyear-welted.
