There is nothing ordinary about Magnanni shoes. Learn about the highly esteemed mens designer shoe company and check out some of their best mens shoes out right now.
The backdrop in which Magnanni became one of the most desired men’s designer shoes in the world, is almost as beautiful as the shoes themselves.
Every Magnanni shoe is handmade in La Mancha, Spain. The still but fertile region has remained mostly untouched by the modern world and is famous for the delicious food and wine produced there. It’s a region where the people pride themselves on meticulously refining every detail of their work. Everyone- craftsman, farmers, wineries, and the legendary shoemakers of Magnanni shoes.
Pascual Blanco Martinez learned shoemaking from his grandfather at a young age. It is an exacting craft not suited for the impatient. He thrived on its precise nature and the satisfaction of turning a sketch into a gentleman’s favorite pair of shoes.
Having been the driving force of growth since the start of the company in 1954, the father of Magnanni continues to emphasis the meticulous attention to detail to his children who now head every department within the company.
What makes Magnanni’s so iconic?
There are two distinguishing traits that make Magnanni’s stand out.
First is the Artesano Stitch which is a noticeable statement created by linking the sole to the upper with double-needle threading. The technique uses a waxed thread to close the seam securely by hand along the edge fo the sole’s ‘wing’. Consideration is painstakingly given as to what Artesano type pairs perfectly with each shoe.
The second is the patina distinction. Each hand-painted stroke of every shoes is subtly different leaving no two pairs identical in their texture, patina, and antiquing.
