I am in Paris and have found a pair of Santoni fatte a mano (tan, not orange) shoes that I really like.  They are on sale for Euro 400. they retail for Euro 800.

Can anyone provide information on the quality of these shoes relative to other goodyear welted shoes with a similar retail price?  How does their construction quality differ from the English shoes (green, lobb, CJ handgrade, Grenson masterpiece, etc.).

I know this question has been answered in the past, but Andy is down and I couldn't find a detailed answer here.  Any information at all would be appreciated.

The albadejo shop had some beautifully finished shoes.  A few of the finishes were reminicient of Berluti.  I have pictures to share when I return.

For 800 Euro (original), they are probably not the more complicated Bentivegna welt, right?
