I like the gucci bit loafers. Have they gone on sale in the past, or does Gucci only sell for full retail? Are Gucci loafers shoes that can be restored, like AE's and Bruno Magli can have the heel and sole replaces and the uppers restored to look new? If I am going to drop $600+ on Gucci, I would like some reassurance it will last a long time and not just a couple years. Please, if you own Gucci tell me your experience and post photos of your Gucci. Thanks. I would like to see how they look after a couple years of wear.
