    I don't know, but it's doubtful. Most Italian shoes at this price level are Blake-stitched. I don't think that there's anything wrong with that, but there it is.

    If the stitching runs quite close to the outside edge (not further in, than ¼") and uses small stitches, it is likely to be Goodyear welted or Blake-Rapid (Blake and Goodyear hybrid) construction.

    If the stitches are larger and run about ½" away from the outside edge (as in the shoe in question) it will be Blake construction.

    [Shimatta. I spoke in haste.] For a shoe to have exposed stitching on the sole means nothing. It's called being stitched aloft. In general, better quality shoes have such stitching covered, so the stitching is not exposed to the elements or the eye. That is called having a channelled sole and is much preferable.

    If you are going to be so bold as to call a person an idiot on this board, please do so in a language everyone understands, i.e. English, the common language of the forum.

    I have a pair of Sandro Moscoloni lace-ups. I like them, the leather is incredibly soft, almost like a slipper, or a sock. They retail for about a hundred bucks, and that's not a bad price for what they are. They are made in Brazil, and the construction is modelled on Italian shoes.

    note: this brand is carried at Men's Wearhouse if that tells you anything.
