Question About Ferragamo Footwear
Silverporsche, I discover you’re in Missouri, so I’ll assume that the Neiman Marcus you frequented stocks the identical vary of Ferragamo sneakers that I saw on the NM in Philadelphia/King of Prussia.
The Ferragamos I noticed at KOP have been all lower/mid range footwear. The order of high quality, from lowest to highest, I believe, is:
Ferragamo Studio (low cost, overpriced, “glued”)
vintage salvatore ferragamo women shoes size 8 Ferragamo Lavatoriale Originale, sp , (first rate quality Blake construction, nonetheless overpriced at retail of around $four hundred-$500)
Ferragamo Tramezza (Goodyear welted, retail around $650-$800, quite nice leather-based; reveals up on Ebay on occasion for $200-$280, and that is an excellent deal)
Gucci sneakers are always a mystery, undecided precisely what Italian manufacturing unit they are made, high quality doesn’t justify asking worth but the brand-name and style/fashion could justify buy to some.
Ballys was once very decent about 20 years in the past. Their high of line is the Scribe, which is Goodyear welted. The last/shape could possibly be hit or miss, some are very elegant, some not. I’d just keep on with the Scribe line and avoid the rest. That stated, I do have a non-Scribe pair purchased about 10 years ago (full retail at $450) that is corrected-grain leather-based. I’ve Topy the only real and it’s a nice beater shoe that’s lasted and nonetheless going.
Bruno Magli prime of line is, I believe, the Platinum. That’s all I know about it. Typical BM you see at dept shops are overpriced.
Santoni’s at most dept shops are a waste of money. There’s quite a couple of ranges of the Santoni’s, the higher/finest ones being the FAM (fatte a mano) and the top of line Restricted (very hard to search out within the States, retail for $1500-$2300, very very nice antiquing on the leather). Even the FAM’s are apparently subdivided into a few ranges. Our forum FAM nut Brian can higher clarify the main points. Me personally I purchase solely the Santoni Classic lines that are Goodyear welted (retail for about $seven-hundred-$900, and will have a “Goodyear” stamped on the only) and a few FAM’s.
