The reason i ask is that they are never involved in the threads or discussions of what the best shoes are? Any opinions from those in the know?

i agree as well, i have two ferragamo loafers, one is a studio line loafer and both are very well wearing , comfortable and long lasting. i have yet to have one problem with them. but if you try a santoni shoe (especially their FAMs) you will notice a big difference in upscale comfort.Originally Posted by diorshoe
Santoni Fette A Mano get's its fair share of respect.Originally Posted by ChicagoRon
The brands listed by previous posters represent very well made and highly regarded Italian shoes (or just non-English shoes in general). I can understand after some time here all you read are guys obsessed with EG, Lobbs, C&Js, and the like. But I would agree with the sentiment that a lot of Italian stylings are over the top. But when they are done right, they are sweet as hell, and I think they look magnitudes better than what Lobb, and especially EG can offer. It all boils down to aesthetic, but if you're wondering about construction, when we're talking about Goodyear or better, if you see an Italian shoe (or Hungarian or French as the case may be), I wouldn't hesitate to spend that money on those shoe. You won't have any regrets thinking, man, for that money I should have bought Lobbs. No, for that money you'd get Santoni FAMs which are just as good, if not better in terms of styling, construction, leather, and fit.Originally Posted by teddieriley
Why the dislike of EG in particular? Personally, I find EGs much more appealing than Lobbs, for the most part.Originally Posted by DocHolliday
