    Ordered a pair from Paolo at Marini last fall, came in this June. My New Shoes.jpg
    What a fit! The leather is amazing. $2400.
    They are just up the street and around the corner from the Spanish Steps.
    No machines, all steps by hand. Very small boutique shop.

    Nice looking shoes and I don't want to take anything away from them. But let's be clear...using a sewing machine to sew the uppers (almost a certainty) is not...not...the same as "no machines, all steps by hand."

    2.400$, having seen the finishing on the Marini shoes in Instagram, looks rather expensive. I'm not saying they aren't nice but, at this price point, Ugolini or Bestetti look better. What do you think?
