My guess is that they are all "made in china" crap.

If you are really a representative for this operation, tell us about it! If you really are doing handmade bespoke footwear for under a grand, everybody here is interested!

I did not understand very well what you mean; but I think there are also honest about the Internet even if they are not as famous trademarks. We produce bespoke shoes and we do. For now we are planning to market, because until today we never sold directly. I don't speak english well. Excuse me.

Può dirci qualcosa di più circa la costruzione, la qualità della pelle e altri materiali, stili disponibili, e il prezzo? Se si sta offrendo a mano su misura scarpe per un prezzo basso, troverete un gran numero di clienti qui.

Thanks for traslate.
I am writing not to sell directly, but to show our work, since no one knows, and have your opinions; because as you say many here appreciate these products.
The work that we do have many as well as materials; the photos of the shoes on the site are all made in natural leather "Veal French" (I do not know if you say so) or "horse leather"; but we use "shell cordovan" too.
"Norwegian" or "Bentivegna" costruction are made with 3 soles sewn together in a chained without using any adhesive thermoplastic; this allows the shoe to adapt to the foot of those who buy and these buildings are done by hand.
