Bought Santoni...

I just bought my first pair of these Santonis (Kenton - rust color) pictured here. They look a lot better in person than they do here. Their darker tone toe is not very obvious in the picture:

I went against SF rules and paid retail, but I really like them. They are quite versatile - can go with everything but black. I was looking at Marteganis but they don't make many in my size.

Any thoughts?

Don't fall into a herd mentality. Even though we are all about value, of utmost importance is personal enjoyment.

For example, even though I had sworn off paying retail, I just did buy a pair of Alden Indy boots at full retail. Absolutely no regrets whatsoever.

I agree. I've often stated that many of my least worn and liked purchases have been items bought on discount. I do appreciate a bargain, and try to find them when possible, but I don't let items at retail get away if I really like and want it (within reason, of course).

+1. Congrats. I love santoni shoes. They don't get the love on this forum that other brands do.

I like them. You could probably do a lot worse at regular price in that range.

Thanks. Let me know of other elegant, classy, Santoni shoes. Do Santonis ever go on sale?

I don't see too many santoni sales. I usually hit up the nordstroms anniversary sale in the summer - usually you can find a pair or two at 30% off.
