I gota chance to repair an Italian shoe. I am not a repairer (I have a few years experience from the last), I make new shoes (here is my work, if someone wouldn't know me: http://youtube.com/watch?v=hhM8ydArWnM )

 

I don't know what about the other brands, but that shoe - which was actually a very expensive one - quality was very poor.

 

Now I would like to ask you about your experience about Italian shoes. (I mean machine-made expensive ones.)

I only wear the top makes Marcell but the best by far has to be a very fine Italian ankle boot, cemented construction with Box Calf Uppers and an ultra fine Leather sole 1.5mm at the edge. Almost too good to wear in the British weather.

I would only wear them in the summer months and they lasted 12 years, I salmost cried when i had to get rid of them due to the uppers perishing.

Expressing an opinion doesn't go against the sites terms and conditions, provided any comments can be substantiated. its a publications grey area & one which I prefer to steer clear of!

Best to generalise, any way why buy Italian when you can buy "British"

personally i wouldn't buy a pair of italian shoes, theyre usually complete crap IMO.

 

talking about quality though.... has anyone ever repaired a pair of 'samuel windsor' shoes? now they are garbage! The welt stitches on these must be over an inch long per stitch & are always falling to bits when they come in the shop :cry:
