Magnanni's Heritage

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.

Magnanni shoes review

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.

The great thing about brown oxfords, the most formal and elegant of the shoe types, is that they look great with just about anything.

The Oxford distinguishes itself by a closed lace system. The eyelets for the shoe laces are generally located on the quarters — that part of the shoe uppers that wrap around the heel and meet the vamp.

Whether you’re a gentleman on the rise looking for your first pair of oxfords or an established man of stature looking to add to a new pair to your existing dress shoe collection, here are a few dark browns worthy of any man’s consideration.

 

Santoni

Founded in 1975, Santoni doesn’t have the steep history than many of its counterparts has.  But that’s not always a bad thing. Santoni has become highly regarded in the luxury shoe fashion world by designing beautiful mens oxfords that draw attention without being too flashy or giving the impression that the person wearing the accessories is trying too hard. 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. 

Salvatore Ferragamo

 $595

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.

Magnanni

 $495

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.

Allen Edmonds

 $395

Founded in Belgium, Wisconsin, Allen Edmonds employs a 212-step manufacturing process that is the basis for handcrafting Allen Edmonds Goodyear welted shoes since 1922.

This shoe’s style dates back hundreds of years, yet still looks as timeless and stylish as ever. Allen Edmonds shoes are made with real leather and lined with premium calfskin. The attention to detail and classic craftsmanship are perfect for business meetings, dinner with family, or a day out. 

George Cleverley

 $615
