    Hello, I have an older pair of shoes I haven't worn in quite a while. I know a picture is best, but this a really a translating question.

    Inside, the shoes say "something"+Michel, Made in Italy They look to be nicely made.

    On the soles it says:

    Dessus cuir Buffle
    Doublure C R Cuir
    Semelle Cuir
    Fabrique En Italie

    Any knowledge or input appreciated!
    Regards and Thanks,
    rnoldh

    Translation:

    Dessus cuir Buffle = Buffalo leather uppers

    Doublure C R Cuir = Leather (C R ??) lining

    Semelle Cuir = Leather sole

    Fabrique En Italie = Made in Italy
