    Hello - I found US size 12.5 and and 13 in the Santoni Cap below on Ebay.

    1: Are these real, or suspect?
    2: With $300 budget, should i look elsewhere (work in finance, suit environment but not too formal as most wear bad/sloppy suits
    3: I wear a 12.5 in Allen Edmonds. Sizing for these?
    4 Any suggestions would be very helpful

    I'm new to the site. Just started buying nicer clothes with a RLBL gray suit, RLBL Navy Sportcoat and could use any suggestions.Not married to RLBL, just had a sale where I live at their store.

    Thanks!

    Santoni offers a wide range of shoes. A lower end model selling for a decent price is not suspect. Double check Santoni's sizing vs. American sizing before you buy.

    Looks like the real deal. It's a Fatte E Mano, which is better than their base models. $299 is a good deal for these.

    I see Santoni FAM for about $350 at Nordstrom Rack. Usually a less-wearable style, and often an unusual size. So, yeah, those seem like a good deal, if you need a pair of lighter brown brogues.

    I do think that color is tacky with too dark a suit.

    Thanks. What about the same color in their cap toe? Which suit colors would this go with? How about with sports coat/ trousers. My suits are standard navy, mid-gray and plan to buy additional trousers for a new RLBL navy sportcoat. Any suggestions helpful or examples of something better to move on with. Currently, I own AE dark brown (almost black) 5th avenues and a slightly brogued AE captoe in a chili color. Many thanks for the advice.

    Cap-Toe below. addtl suggestions most welcome!
