Bought my first pair of Santoni loafers online.

Since information was lacking on the website, I took it as a gamble and see what I would get in the end (able to return the shoes within 30 days).

Got it today and quite surprised to find it was a pair of FAM loafers, which I didn't expect at a price of merely over $200.

However, while I was examining the shoes, I couldn't identify whether it belongs to the orange sock or the tan sock since it doesn't look like either of them (and read that we can't judge from the colour of the shoe lining) , and I couldn't identify whether it was Blake or Goodyear, or Bologna, which I learned online that Santoni loafers may use this construction method as well.

Code: 6355 15 D 7

May I seek your advise on this please? Much appreciated.

Doubt they are GY, would be labeled as such. Their loafers are super comfortable, I'm a big fan. Maybe bologna because of the added flexibility and "light" yet durable construction.

Nice! I think those look like blake rapid. A shot of the insole could help to try to determine.

Just got these. I like them but debating on keeping vs returning since the soles are so thick. I'm really tall as it is not sure I need another half inch or so above even the rest of my boots!!!
