I know I've read on the forum that Sutor makes shoes for Zegna, but the Sutor Zegnas I've seen actually look like Sutors from the sole nails whereas I feel like these don't. Here are some of the things that strike me as odd about these shoes:

  • I'm a solid 11D in most all shoes. These are marked 9EE and they fit fine.
  • The lasted shoe trees are marked as an 8
  • Are the nails in the waist / toe / heel wood pegs?
  • Who marks their shoes with a number like this? It says 71/650 like they're a limited issue or something. Understanding that if the manufacturer of these shoes actually sells under their own label that oval might contain different info.

I was wondering if they might be Santoni based on the "Goodyear" tag and the serrated heel pad, but that's just a weak guess. These are very nicely made shoes - compact heel, overall much sleeker than anything else I currently wear. I haven't yet decided if I'm going to keep them, but I'd like to see if anyone knows who might have made them.

Thanks for any info anyone can provide.

I have a pair of Zegna Couture with all the same markings. I haven't had any luck figuring out who the maker is, either, although there seems to be some speculation that it's the product of a Zegna/Ferragamo joint venture.
