I had a meeting with a fellow SF'er the other day and I was early and so wandered into the men's clothing section of a department store. They were having their 'last call' sales with shoes at half price, and an extra 50% discount on a second pair. There were some brands that I didn't recognise like 'Varie', 'Peluso' and some more familar like Cheaneys made for this store. I spied some Borgioli which I'd heard reasonably good things of in the forum. So in ten minutes I picked up two pairs of shoes that fill in gaps in my shoe 'collection'.
A green (!) chelsea boot with a medallion on the cap.





A brown wholecut with chisel toe:




They run a little large - the boot is a half size smaller and feels fine. The sole has 'interamente fatte a mano' which is probably just adspeak though they do look fairly well made. But they look good and feel good. The photos are for 'j'; sorry but the quality of my mobile phone camera isn't great but hopefully you get the idea.

how much did you drop? And what store is this? I have someone scouting sales for me as we speak and I'd like to pick up black shoes if possible.

Oh wait you in NY?

Love the brown wholecuts, I don't care if they look like skis on me.

I am going to check out the place tomorrow. If anyone wants me to check on size, let me know overnight.

Sweet shoes! I love the green boots. I'll take a pair in blue too.

It seems like I've seen that same fleur de lys sole on another shoe - maybe the handmade Certo's that Lance was selling a few years ago?
