Quite welcome!Thanks! With the vibram sole they are incredibly comfortable.
They are Italian. Paul Stuart has reworked their whole shoe program and though they still maintain a selection of English made shoes (C&J I believe still) they bulk are Italian made.Quite welcome!
Do you know the country of origin? They look as if they might be Italian, and lest I be mistaken, I believe PS has been sourcing from premium Italian makers for some items.
And not that it's in anyway indicative of country of manufacture, but I was very surprised when I finally checked Vibram to learn it was an Italian company. Vibram soles had been showing up on U.S. and other maker's shoes for decades, and I'd just assumed it was U.S. company.
Thanks for the added information.They are Italian. Paul Stuart has reworked their whole shoe program and though they still maintain a selection of English made shoes (C&J I believe still) they bulk are Italian made.
Vibram is a composite of Vitale Bramani who I believe was an Italian mountain climber. He invented the lug sole which became the basis for the company.
The nice thing about Vibram is that they are incredibly durable, and can be applied to Goodyear or Blake constructed shoes. When the sole does wear out, the old sole is removed and the new one applied without having to completely recraft the shoe.
