Question About Ferragamo Footwear
Silverporsche, I notice you might be in Missouri, so I will assume that the Neiman Marcus you frequented stocks the same vary of Ferragamo footwear that I noticed at the NM in Philadelphia/King of Prussia.
The Ferragamos I noticed at KOP were all lower/mid range sneakers. The order of high quality, from lowest to highest, I believe, is:
Ferragamo Studio (low cost, overpriced, “glued”)
Ferragamo Lavatoriale Originale, sp , (first rate high quality Blake development, still overpriced at retail of round $four hundred-$500)
Ferragamo Tramezza (Goodyear welted, retail vintage ferragamo serial number shoes around $650-$800, quite nice leather-based; exhibits up on Ebay every now and then for $200-$280, and that’s a superb deal)
Gucci sneakers are all the time a mystery, unsure precisely what Italian factory they are made, quality doesn’t justify asking price but the model-identify and trend/fashion may justify buy to some.
Ballys used to be very decent about 20 years ago. Their top of line is the Scribe, which is Goodyear welted. The final/shape could be hit or miss, some are very elegant, some not. I might simply stick to the Scribe line and keep away from the rest. That mentioned, I do have a non-Scribe pair bought about 10 years ago (full retail at $450) that’s corrected-grain leather-based. I’ve Topy the only and it’s a nice beater shoe that is lasted and still going.
Bruno Magli top of line is, I believe, the Platinum. That’s all I find out about it. Typical BM you see at dept stores are overpriced.
Santoni’s at most dept stores are a waste of cash. There’s quite a few ranges of the Santoni’s, the higher/greatest ones being the FAM (fatte a mano) and the top of line Limited (very arduous to find within the States, retail for $1500-$2300, very very nice antiquing on the leather). Even the FAM’s are apparently subdivided into a number of ranges. Our discussion board FAM nut Brian can better explain the main points. Me personally I purchase only the Santoni Basic vintage ferragamo serial number shoes lines which can be Goodyear welted (retail for about $seven-hundred-$900, and can have a “Goodyear” stamped on the only real) and a few FAM’s.
