    I've bought maldini's which are at the same price point as citro lendini. I would not recommend them at all. I rather pay the extra 60 or so bucks and buy some mainline gammos of ebay.

    Gualtieri is garbage, fashion forward with no quality at all. Avoid unless it is at thrift store prices, paying shipping is too much for these. I got a pair of their wing tip chelseas, they promptly were sent back, I tried to like the look, couldnt, and more over the quality was aweful. Also, the website claimed it had leather soles, it didnt.

    I'd just add an "at full price" to this. I just received a pair of the Gualtieri chelsea boots (no wingtip) and for the Yoox firesale price of $30, they're a steal and I imagine I'll get a good amount of use out of them. At $160 or whatever they retailed for (on Yoox, even)-- no way. Not even at 50% off.

    The boots I ordered did run big, but I don't know how that would translate to the shoe you're looking at. Nothing a padded insole couldn't fix.

    Those Guiliteri chelsea boots are ok for the sale price. Nice shape too (not too pointy not to round). Good one season shoes for 30-50 dollars.

    Maldini is the same garbage sa MOMA(Yoox), Lumiani (Zappos), Bronx.

    Horribel, just horrible shoes that are not worth 5 dollars.

    Is Moma a crap brand?, i've always thought they were pretty decent.
    They retail at around $300-$400 in my country and are welted or blake stitched, the leathers seem nice too (ive only seen pics, not seen them irl)
    They seem to copy Paul Smith shoe styles quite blatant.
    Is it the same moma you're talking about?

    My Maldini shoe heels wore down to the top after like 6 wears. It's like they use putty or something. Not to mention it felt like I was walking on cardboard.
