I think they vary, just as many other shoes from elsewhere do.
I've had two pairs of shoes I bought there. One pair was an immediate relief to my trouble walking in my own shoes from home for twenty days at a time; the new pair were just that, walking shoes. I don't know if they were actually made in italy by italians. They were the best for my feet in the shoe store close to where my feet were killing me.

The other pair I bought in Florence was elegant and comfortable, made in Italy locally, if I remember. I kept those for a few years.

My favorite shoes? Danskos. Danish firm. I think where they are made has changed over the years but I am not sure. Their clogs fit my feet exceptionally well, but I assume wouldn't work for everyone.

On the whole idea of Made in Italy? There is an area in north central italy, Prato to be specific, where chinese firms are making (or were making) shoes that could be stamped Made in Italy. Buyer beware.
