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
