    These are new to me. I know most of you have seen these before, but I couldn't help posting a couple of pics.

    I'm not sure if the last is going to work out for me, so sadly, they may be for sale soon.


    And that is my grail shoe.

    I bought my first Zegna dress shoes on Saturday. Retail price was around 700 USD, at at 50% off I'm not sure I made a good deal. They are not Couture / good year welted, but I like the sleek last and the styling. Who makes the Zegna mainline shoes now, Ferragamo, Campanile?

    Luk-cha simple and stunning! Is that G&G MTO or Bespoke? Color Espresso?. Magnificent.

    Like the tantalizing Teutonic Titwillow, delishuz Deutschelandian Dinks.

    Love those. I have a pair of Vass very similar but mine are almost too sleek even on the Peter last - I like that round shape for this style very much.

    A rather extreme last for my tastes but I have to admire the craftsmanship. Excellent shoes.

    Good choice. Not to everone's taste, that's for sure, but still one of the better RTW offerings out there, IMHO.

    unfortunately ed didn'r answer my question, if they are NOS.

    imho; current dinks suck. vass or ludwig reiter is the way to go for a proper "Norweger".

    probably wiedeking closed the money train for dinks.

    No, not NOS, at least not that I am aware of. I'll check for the name of the German store they came from. I love Dinkelacker and will be getting budapesters in calf and in suede from them. Rock solid shoes very nicely finished, cleaner than Vass. I cannot wait to wear these [​IMG]

    Not sure if this belongs here or in the small questions thread, but I hope you shoe-aholics can point me in the right direction. I'm looking for a burgundy cap toe oxford with a long toe box similar to the C&J Hallam. Please be gentle and keep it in the same price range ish. Thanks!
