One look at these handmade, Goodyear-welted beauties from Scarpe Di Bianco and you know the shoes produced by this storied Italian brand are far from ordinary. The artful hand-burnishing may not be for everyone, as it’s a sign of the sort of luxury shoemaking usually reserved for a select few (the name of the color is Dubai, after all). Yet Di Bianco’s shoes are nothing if not balanced. The minimal broguing, the stitch detail at the quarters, and the rubber shank (a Di Bianco signature) all help to temper the opulence. These shoes are not for amateurs, and the pros among us will recognize that seeing a pair of shoes like these—for this price—doesn’t happen very often.
