  1. Great video! It’s great hearing your thoughts and opinions on desginer brands, as you usally cover ‘tradition’ footwear makers (e.g. G&G, TLB Mallorca, ACME, etc.). Nonetheless, I couldn’t agree more. That the majority of high end fashion houses make ‘throw-away-shoes’ or ‘junk’. The leather is always impecable, but the craftsmanship is no where to be found, what a shame, but that’s business. Whatever sells with the highest profit margins and return on investment (i.e. increase the price for the consumer and decrease the cost to produce it). Anyway, the Tramezza Line is an expection. Although, not all shoes are produced by Paolo Scarfora, they are all goodyear welted, with leather stacked heels (premade) and phenomenal leather. Additionally, I did cut open one of my tramezza’s and they do not have a cork filling. Instead, they use a soft leather with slits under the ball of the foot for flexibility and a rivited metal shank for support. Overall, they make a great shoe, but at their price of $1,000 + their is better value. Personally, I think their finishing is better than Crockett and Jones and Edward Green. Luckily, they can often be found at outlets for under $550.

      Thank you for sharing this. It is very helpful. And true. And yes, one of the thing that the Italians are impeccable at is their capabilities of finishing and consistency. 2nd to none few.

      To be honest, I cannot say for sure. But I do not think so. My pair 18 years ago did not look like his finishing

      It is doubtful as they are essentially a fashion brand and do not repeat stuff therefore once out of the collection, nearly impossible to get again unless you snag it up on eBay
