If you really think about it, one of the true men’s luxury items is shoes. 

Why?  Because shoes get worn out.

Unlike suits, watches, cars and the like, shoes very simply have a predetermined lifespan.  Especially if you love them and use them all the time.

Now the ultimate in these luxury items are shoes made from the legendary Italian company Fratelli Rossetti.

You’ve probably seen their ads in a lot of high-end men’s magazines, but to see these shoes in person would be like seeing a masterpiece created by a Rennaissance artist like Michelangelo.  Pictures just don’t do it justice.

I remember seeing a pair at a shop in Venice, Italy that was made from one piece of leather for each shoe.  One piece.  If you think about it – there was stitching only at the back of the shoe and where the sole was connected to the upper.

As one might assume, these types of masterpieces aren’t for the faint of heart when it comes to spending.  You’re easily looking at $500 on up to get yourself a pair of Fratelli Rossettis.  For it to make financial sense, you should probably be wearing an Audemars and NOT a Casio.  Otherwise you’re probably living waaay beyond your means.

Men’s luxury ain’t cheap, but it looks so damn good.
