    Shape straight out of the late 1930's to 1940's US. Classic spade (with a slightly chiseled toe instead of the point & that incredible narrow Bestetti waistline)...

    I love your site. First thing I check when I wake up.

    I will keep it in mind. You should put my G&G collection on your site. I am not good at taking pictures, but I have a very nice collection. Santoni LEs as well. All of them.
    Next time you're back home, stop in Denver as my guest.

    I am planning on a November trip to Milan after I narrow down the details and appointments.

    Love the pics and really appreciate you posting. One question however. I see that all of them are in your size (a MASSIVE US 14-14.d), but none have been worn.

    I can understand the G&G, as they seem to be relatively new. However, that is Santoni's Ltd Edition line from 1998, correct? So, you have had them for 14 years and never wore even a single pair (on concrete at least)?

    Regardless, I would LOVE to see your Limited Edition collection!!! I am a huge Santoni LE fan. My favorite RTW shoe by far. So underappreciated (at least in the US) and the Santoni Norvegese and Bentivegna is so much nicer than those offerings by the other RTW makers (Sutor, Lidfort, Stefanobi, etc). Thanks for what you've posted so far and will pop some popcorn and grab a Scotch when you post more.
