I found a pair of very nice chocolate brown loafers at Goodwill yesterday. The leather is of the highest quality and the construction is very subtle and very precise. Printed in silver on the sock liner are SL and then Zintala. From past discussion (as well as a whole host of other reasons) I'm pretty sure that these shoes were indeed made by Lattanzi. I'm curious, though, as to why Lattanzi would make shoes under these two different marks. There's nothing fancy about the details on these Zintala shoes--no florid Italian script, two-tone soles, or fancy decorative nailwork. So what is the point of the two lines? And does Lattanzi still make Zintala-branded shoes?
