Thoughts on these Ferragamos I picked up for ~$370?

    You did fine. Congratualtions on your purchase and enjoy in good health. The soles seem of decent thickness and the uppers look good.

    That's quite a good price for Tramezzas.

    I'm a big fan of Tramezzas and $370 is a good price, but all of my Tramezzas purchased 4-5 years ago have channeled soles. These do not, so I'm wondering if Ferragamo may have lowered their quality.

    This is an interesting observation.

    They also no longer do that really charming V-shaped toplift. I liked that.

    The $595 retail is very low for Tramezzas

    I had the very same thought. That seems more like a price point for the Lavorazione Originale line, which is also a very well made shoe, but not quite as good as the Tramezza, which normally retails for over $750 or so. In any case, that's looks like a terrific find for the price paid by the OP and if my own size was not waitlisted, I'd probably have bought a pair for myself.
