    Anyone know who makes the new Golden Fleece shoes? It's made in Italy with no obvious traits (last shape is more old school though, like Alden Barrie/Church binder leather PTB). In the promotion it does say flexible goodwelt, so I guess I can start guessing it's Sassetti, though it really could be anyone. Priced about $550?

    Cheaper than C&J for BB. Do we know who makes these?

    Made in Italy, so harder to guess for sure

    Got an email from them today describing them and interesting to see Goodyear Welted out of Italy. I thought Italian shoes were mostly Blake stitched.

    The new "thermoplastic polyurethane forefoot insert" does not bode well. Is this the footwear equivalent of moving to all non-iron dress shirts?

    Based on the photos it just looks like a rubber 'topper' on the bottom of the sole - I do a lot of city walking so I prefer this.

    That said, I don't pay more than $200 for shoes and usually buy AE on clearance.

    I don't know, it looks flushed with the sole to me, not added on top like a Topy. Looks like you're giving up some leather for that sole.
