    I'd like to get a consensus opinion on these shoes. They're $395 and I'd wear them mainly with odd trousers. Other suggestions for a similar shoe would be great.

    Ignore the naysayers. The shoes are quite beautiful and seem to be a steal at such a price.

    there are a whole lot of italian shoe names starting with 'M' and ending in 'i'.

    I came to my opinion in the following ranking of the four italian shoe makers
    (not taking price into account, just quality):

    mantellassi
    martegani


    moreschi

    magnanni

    I own a pair of Marteganis and have a pair on order. I love mine. So "yes" on the shoe. I just recently bought my first pair of Moreschi -those fit great and are comfortable also.

    I'd wear those with a charcoal gray suit, too.
