I wish I had experience with them...

But, from what I had done some research; I would recommend the Lazzeri Handmade Shoes section; and the Rogani...

And the Giogrio Fornasiero shoes. Extremely well made.

I saw these shoes, they appear to be very well made; fine leather as well.

Lorenzo Banfi retail pricing tends to be on an optimistic side. This particular style runs $410. I've tried them on, and while certainly comfy there's frankly nothing special about'em. But then I don't think much of Magli Platinum line either, let alone their $600 going price. I'd advise taking your money elsewhere.
