    No one is going to know this one. There are hundreds of (well, at least one hundred) Italian makers. Other than a handful, they do not have unique markings. Additionally, its usually not worth determining the Italian manufacturers because most aren't worth anything or the quality is so-so.

    Not unusual, many/most shoe makers make shoes for other stores.

    Yes, probably, based on the heel and markings... that is what I am saying.

    No, but you can check their website to see if they still run that model. However it might be a store specific model, exclusively for whoever they were made for.

    I would like to ask if somebody could help me about this brown suede shoes.I try and i can´t figure out what brand and model they really are.
    They have written on the heel(not leather)l the word Jubilee and the initials IPS or LPS below. The sole is brown cherry all leather and they say inside the shoes Made in the county of Northampton England.
    If anyone could give me any information about the brand.model or price i would be grateful.
    Many thanks
    Regards
