What I was looking for - I needed shoes to wear around town
(with casual slacks or jeans). I wanted brown shoes and I
wasn't willing to sacrifice comfort for style. I bought the
brown Italia 74s. People notice and compliment them, but I
don't notice I'm wearing them. The leather is nice. The style
is classic. There is enough arch support.
Italia 74 is a classic looking shoe - My size 13's felt at
home the minute I put them on. I have a problem with arches so
am fussy about my shoes - these give a lot of support and feel
fine wearing them all day at school.
