These are a good buy. Santoni Fate A Mano are quite well made and regularly retail for $700 and up.

And the seller 'shop the finest' is an Style Forum Affiliate.

That was the sale price I paid for Santoni FAM ''in-store'': $299+13% taxes. The color is sublime burnt orange withe brass nails on the toe and heels, skived soles. I let you be the judge.









I paid twice -$600+taxes - for recent Loro Piana, which could be made by Santoni. But they are better constructed in terms of thicker+supple uppers, sturdier more substantial insoles, fiddle waist, claimed to be waterproof.

I paid $250+taxes for these Santoni penny loafers made of substantial calf uppers in greyish green color. These reflect different colors -bizarre- during different times of the day.



All in all that price is fair for something you really like and that it exhibits value proposition and cool at same time. Hope this helps.

I love that burnt orange color, really nice. Thank you guys for your opinions, this is my first Santoni and it is really comfortable compared to my other shoes. I almost bought this ferragamo (picture below), but my friend advised me to get a Santoni or Sutor. I've already purchased another Santoni shoe due to the comfortability of the recent Santoni I purchased.
