    I was shopping this weekend for a pair of throwdown brown shoes and ended up with a pair of Mercanti Fiorentini shoes from DSW. I wasn't familiar with the brand, but they weren't expensive, and I liked the style and fit. I don't know about the quality, but I'd like to see what other styles are available - DSW only had the one style. I've searched the web for a source to no avail. Anyone know of an online place to order new Mercanti Fiorentini shoes?

    Thanks in advance - Instar

    no intel on where to find them online, but my local FIlen's Basement had a bunch of pairs. Some flashy, pretty nice styling, leather soles, but the leather was plasticy and construction looked less than solid. Seemed like fine "dressy for the club" shoes, but I wouldn't pay more than a two digit price for them.

    Exactly. I wouldn't want to wear the shoes to work, but they're fine for the times you need something more than a loafer, but not quite a Ferragamo. I'll check the local department stores closeout sections - that's a good idea. Thanks.

    All I can say is that I've only seen them in DSW. I had a pair 3 or 4 years ago, it looked nice at the beginning but wasn't very durable. I think it was some sort of black loafer or monkstrap.

    I saw some nice looking Mercanti Fiorentini chelsea boots at DSW. They seem solid and fit exceptionally well. I'm trying to decide between these and the Calvin Klein Darren chelsea boot, $170.

    The first pic is the Mercanti. The second pic, with white background, is the Calvin Klein.

    All ideas and comments welcome.

    Thanks!

    Kind of junky. Don't pay three figures for them.

    I had a pair about 4 or 5 years ago and wasn't impressed. They fit well and were semi-comfortable, but fell apart ridiculuously fast.

    See them at DSW all the time. The leather seems unimpressive. For that same price point at DSW I think some of the Magnanni or Mezlan offerings (I know, I know, those suck too) are a better value.

    I was considering a similar purchase at DSW today. Thanks to a BlackBerry Google search - and specifically the Style Forum - Ipassed on the pair of Fiorentini loafers I saw.

    The quality isn't very good. If you can get a pair on clearance for $50 maybe they'd be worth it but otherwise I'd pass.

    Hi,

    Was reading the advice (or criticisms) about Mercanti Fiorentini...wondering if anyone had any other suggestions. Just looking for a middle-of-the-road Italian shoe, split-toe style, like this one:

    http://www.dsw.com/dsw_shoes/catalog...&prodId=169874

    (Mercanti Fiorentini 6274 Leather).

    DSW doesn't have my size (11) in brown, so I'm out of luck anyway...but further would have hesitations buying these given some of the reviews here.

    Appreciate any other suggestions of brands/styles, and where to buy them online if possible.

    Thanks!
    Matt

    I have the first pictured pair. Paid something like $40 after a %60 discount at Filene's Basement. They're not too bad and have held up well after over a year of consistant, but not constant wear. I'm sporting them today actually. One thing to be aware of is that the heels have a tendency to wear down faster than most. But I still love 'em and will have them resoled/heeled in the future as the rest of the boot has held up just fine.

    I know this is an old thread, but I actually have three pairs of mercanti fiorentini shoes. I have owned them for over a year and wear them regularly. I am a Technical Outsides Sales Engineer for an Industrial Automation company and thus I am in an out of warehouses and distribution centers regularly. Rarely sit down during my day unless I am driving, and the shoes have managed to hold up very well. They are comfortable, no stitching issues, and the leather in my opinion is quite nice for an Italian shoe. They have WAY outlasted several pairs of Calvin Klein's....

    At the end of the day, shoes complete your style, I say buy what makes you feel good!

    I briefly owned a pair and sold them here. They were wholecuts in box calf and very nice. The leather was so supple and the burnishing was decent. Not bad for the $125 I paid.

    I tried on a pair a while back and they felt almost plastic-like, I would stay since at these prices you can find better shoes
