The custom of clergy shoes...


Buckled shoes can be purchased at Ditta A. Gammarelli on the Via Santa Chiara, 34 for about 200 euro (or so I was told).

or you can just buy buckles and put them on shoes. the shoes should be slipper-like (pantofola liscia) and have no markings on them.

Tridentium also sells them.

What a pity this cleric did not have enough pride in his shoes to bother cleaning them! Shoe polish can be bought, I am told, at many Roman urban and suburban outlests for only a few Euros.

Pride? Rome is dusty.

Nice, but are they still allowed?
