    I have searched and have yet to find so I figured I'd start a new thread for Bontonis. They are in my opinion one of my most comfortable shoes I own. Ill start off with a little p0rn of my own:

    Can you comment on the construction? I've never handled a pair in my life so I digress ignorance. I've read that they are blake rapid, yet every single one of those looks welted. I know that the company starts with white leather and dyes it themselves, which is just epic, but I'd like to know more.

    There are all 3 ranges of construction. Just depends on the specific shoe.

    Ejirardo those look awesome! Great collection! I need a few more to catch up to your collection. I think Navy is something for my next project.

    PS Namor we gotta get you a pair bro!

    Thanks Justin - you will get there.

    USC - some of the RTW collection is Blake rapid but all the pairs I own are good year welted. Most of mine are MTO. Go Trojans by the way. It is true that the company starts with white leather and hand colors. Plus they are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned.

    Bontoni will be having a trunk show in San Francisco 4/4. I'm looking forward to seeing their new shoes and finishes. I will also be doing an interview with the owners who will be visiting for the show.

    I gotta see if I can get out there. I would love to just to see what else is new. My wallet just cries in fear when I go to Wilkes.

    Wow, beautiful shoes and some serious shoe shinning porn. Anyone interested in next level shoe shinning should look into Berluti's Swan Club where members shine shoes with champagne while wearing white gloves and tuxedos.
