Instead, when wearing Santoni shoes, self-assurance comes naturally as the brand’s high quality offerings speak for themselves.
For the sartorial gentleman, they pair well with a navy suit – on occasions that demand a dash of flair. Cap the look off with a silk pocket square.
A native of Naples, Italy, Salvatore Ferragamo was a teenaged shoe apprentice before moving to California and becoming known as the shoemaker to the stars. Ferragamo returned to Italy in 1927, where he officially launched his own collection. Today the Ferragamo line encompasses not only exquisitely made shoes for men and women, but also infinitely stylish handbags and fragrances. Furthermore, the company is still family owned and operated in Florence, where you’ll also find the Ferragamo Museum. Home to thousands of shoes (including the famous invisible sandal, cage shoe, and wedge heel)- it’s a must see when visiting Florence.
These Tristano leather brown oxford shoes feature soft leather lining on the inside and burnished leather detailing on the outside. Topped off with a beautiful Salvatore Ferragamo logo on the vamp.
A standard-bearer of their kind during the Golden Age of Hollywood in the 1950’s, Salvatore Ferragamo’s still remain an icon of style today.
It doesn’t get much finer than this.
Since we already covered a little about Magnanni’s history, let’s talk about their process.
From the outset, each Magnanni shoe is a work of art that perfectly combines comfort and style. The leathers used are carefully inspected and chosen for their quality and beauty (most are from tanneries in France, Italy, and Spain). They are then finished and colored by hand to create a unique, rich color. Once the leather is ready, each shoe is last by hand. This labor-intensive procedure of fitting the leather over a form ensures superior comfort and flexibility. Also the lasts themselves (the forms on which the shoes are shaped) are all made by Magnanni to ensure that the finished shoe fits well and offers the design, comfort, and support for which Magnanni is renowned.
These Maganni dress oxfords with custom sole stitch detail only look better when seeing them on your own feet.
