    Does Ferragamo offer recrafting service for its Tramezza line shoes?

    Not according to the people at the Beverly Hill's store...who didn't know the difference between the Tramezza and regular lines aside from the price. I'd be very pleased to learn that Ferragamo recrafting exists.

    I think that the answer is No. I asked the staff in the Vancouver Ferragamo store (their flagship store in Canada) about this once, and they told me that they send any recrafting-type work to a particular cobbler in Vancouver. (For the Vancouver guys on this forum, that is Parson's Shoe Repair; Denise at Parson's used to work for Ferragamo.) At that time, they had no corporate-sponsored recrafting program of the kind that Allen-Edmonds, Crockett & Jones, Edward Green, and some others do.

    Can the average local cobbler do a good job approximating the beveled sole on the Tramezzas? Or are you likely to end up with a "regular" sole?

    Yes they do. I read an article in a men's fashion magazine two years in ago and called one The New York store and they said yes.

    I don't know about the Tramezza line. I took in a pair of regular line Ferragamos (from before I knew better) that needed resoling and they obviously outsourced the job to a local cobbler. If the Ferragamo store accepts your shoes, I would make sure that they aren't going to turn the local cobbler loose on your shoes.
