    They appear to be women's shoes?

    Those are listed as women's shoes. Is that just an error?

    says mens shoes at the top of the page, the santonis look like a good deal to me, and they're a nice looking shoe.

    I'd call YOOX and inquire to be sure, although there is nothing feminine about those Santonis. I prefer them to the Marteganis, and think they would look good casually or with a suit. The price is decent if unspectacular but you likely can't find anything better at this price point.

    P.S. Just noticed these have a rubber sole. That makes it a tougher decision.

    I have some rubber-soled Santonis and I really like them. I did however get them for a fair amount cheaper then that Yoox price. If you play around on ebay and the like you may be able to find something similar, considerably cheaper.


    Incidentally, while I like them a lot, the rubber sole does make it impossible to really dress them up. I have actually thought about trying to have a cobbler replace it with a leather sole. Is this advisable/possible?
