Sorry about the repeat on Ask Andy but l really need to know because l am thinking of purchasing a pair. How do Artioli shoes compare to Edward Green, Santoni Handmades and Grenson masterpeices? l know they are all different beasts but is Artioli's quality approaching Edward Green. l had a salesman tell me recently that Artioli are the best shoes in the world. How are they constructed? Are they hand lasted? Are the soles hand stiched to the uppers? ls there alot of handwork in the Artioli shoes? Thanks: marc_au.
