Are these Ferragamo Double Monk Straps from Tramezzas line?

Is there any chance that someone here can recognize if the double monk straps in the small photo below are from Tramezzas line? The only thing that I can tell is that the label on the insole may indicate an positive answer. However, I am not confident. If anyone here own a pair or saw them before, then he may be able to tell from the style. I imagine Ferragamo doesn't make a lot of models for double monk straps, does it?

I thought Ferragamo were shoemakers? Isn't that especialty or am I missing something? I know their quality isn't the same as before but their Tramezza line is still nice and still a valid shoemaker. Right?

Just curious.

I think there was a 'grey' area of Tramezza quality (sometimes above) shoes before they settled on the Tramezza name. The sole markings on Tramezzas ('true ones') are quite variable - some have the metal plaque, some don't.

PS put some trees into those!

They don't look welted from that angle, so I'm going to say "no."

For a while Ferragamo sewed the label into standard, Blake-stitched shoes. My first captoe oxfords were Ferragamos with the sewn-in label, and they are not in any way comparable to the Tramezzas.
