    Hello,
    I came across these Gravati shoes on ebay. What do you guys think of its price, quality and construction?
    I'm thinking of buying them.

    Note: The shoes are suede calfskin uppers, full leather linings and the beverly outsole are a combination of rubber and leather. Handmade in Italy using Bologna construction.

    The price is good for Gravati. If you like them and they will fit you, get them, but I would be deterred by a black suede dress shoe with a rubber sole. Not positive these are Bologna, since Gravati predominantly uses Blake construction.

    Thank you Mishon for your kind reply.
    Do you think a leather sole would be more appropriate with a suede dress shoe?

    Your input would be highly regarded.

    Best Regards.
