    Anyone know anything about the Butti line of shell cordovan shoes offered by BG? Pricey at $1,000 a pair.

    I saw these at NM and I figured they were some obscure brand already discussed here. But I wasnt sure if they were Butti or Botti? Are they Butti for sure? They are hand written insoles, italian style

    Rossignol just announced a joint venture with Corthay, to manufacture ski poles to be sold as a package with Corthay shoes?

    Agreed, and Grenson does this too. Not sure why.

    Does that mean that Wilkes got cut out, or the salesman is lying?

    Not much to like about those ones in my mind. What is the deal with the small, oddly decorative punchings?

    I ask myself that about a lot of the detailing on Lobbs.

    I like these, although I prefer round punch holes to the oblong shape these have. The light colored extended welt is interesting, something you don't see on most Lobbs.

    I think they are cool, I'd probably sport them if it were cold where I live.

    They are definitely the best of the three. A few years ago at Lattanzi in Rome I saw a customer having a fitting on a similar boot except it was nearly knee length and cordovan on the outside.

    I think ya'll are nuts. While they may look cool, they are both useless (in the snow?... right) and pretentious.
