    ^ regarding where these rank within the fatte a mano line(s), I don't know. it seems like there's been a decent amount of debate and inconsistent info on what the different insoles imply, that if I were you, I probably wouldn't worry too much about it. if you're confident that the sizing of this particular pair will work for you, I wouldn't hesitate to buy them. just my two cents...

    It blake rapid shoe.
    It better than all other machine constructed Santoni line.
    Reverse welt construction and with hand inseam much better and rank best and
    Norvegese and Bentivegna very very and rank best.
    It good price with blake rapid.
    Size is very funny,
    it can run half size small many time but not all time.

    No.
    Some place have no serrated sock and other place have serrated sock.
    It make no difference with this shoe.
    It is top line machine constructed shoe.

    Santoni goodyear feel more better than blake rapid because it have thicker insole and cork to make it feel very good and mould very good,
    but the blake rapid more solid machine construction.
    The blake rapid is more hard shoe than the goodyear.
    Blake rapid still very good to wear,
    goodyear better to wear me think.

    It seems comprehending Santonis is little complicated :). From what I understand thru this forum "FAM" written on the insole indicates some amount of handwork, it could be sewing/welting/Patina etc. So if this is is fully machine constructed where does the hand thing play in? It seems I have no clue..!

    I'd also like to know how to figure out if it is blake or reverse welt construction and hand inseam?

    They play trick on you.
    By hand is hand click of lining and upper,
    hand antique,
    use hand to guide machine to stitch shoe,
    hand cut insole,
    hand cut sock and other shoe process.
    Hand last?


    Me say this later.

    So this model of Santoni marked as Goodyear inside is better fit/finish and construction than the Fate A Mano line?

    Sorry forgot to attach photos in my previous post.

    They are very similar in construction to the tan non serrated sock liner FAM models.

    Are you stating all FAM models are Blake stiched? I have two pair that would prove that to be false.
