What do you think of these Maglis?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Had this posted in the "cool shoes . . " thread. Perhaps a little obscure so I am posting a new thread. EL72 already suggested that perhaps some may argue that C&Js may be a better deal at $400 from plal. Thanks EL72. My question is more absolute I guess, Should I keep these? They fit remarkable well, perhaps just as well as the handgrades I tried on at the C&J at T&A store in the city a couple of weeks back!

Was at the NMLC store this weekend and saw this one pair of Platinum Maglis. They were marked at $420 but with additional discount I ended up paying approx $340. Almost passed them up because they were stacked in the 8.5 rack. I figured I would take them, check the price on the web (cheapest I saw was $402) and get fora members' opinion.

Yes they are no JLs or EGs but I think they are a nice pair and actually looks a little better in flesh:

I am interested in your thoughts. "Thumbs up and keep" or "down and return before the 30 day period lapses"?

Please return them.

I hope you are correct that NMLC has a 30 day return policy!

All other things being equal (value for money, construction for money ratios etc) I think it's a reasonably nice shoe.

Not bad, but you could do better at that price.
especially on ebay

For my taste, there's too much piecework. I have several pairs of Magli shoes. They fit me quite well.

They gotta be smoking something to put $675 retail price on these. Return them and never look back.

I don't particularly care for this style, but if you like them and they fit well then keep them and don't rely on forum members to make your clothing decisions for you.

As someone else who doesn't like the idea of shopping on ebay, or not buying something that's brand new, I still think you could likely do better on price. I don't love them, but if you do, that's all that matters.

Too expencive. If not for the price, I like these better:

The price seems real high for what you get.

Not a fan.

Have Franco's put together a Martegani for you for that price. Or find some Tramezzas on Ebay... or...
