In this video I showcase a pair of high end elegant black tassel loafers made by Salvatore Ferragamo, featuring a narrowed and beveled waist. I explain what both of those terms mean, and show you some of the fine points of the sole design and aesthetics of a high end shoe.
As of the production of this video, Ferragamo does not make this particular model shoe, but the least expensive similar shoe is $560 without a beveled waist, and with a beveled waist is $679!
Here are links to a couple other videos I mentioned:
