Which of these two Magnanni do you like better (deciding which to keep)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've been searching for a nice, sleek black cap toe and just found these two at Nordstrom Rack for under $150 after tax.

I know Magnanni gets disparaged a lot here, however, I've always liked their style and found them to use a high quality leather and be well constructed for the price (like Meermin and other Spanish made). To me they combine a Santoni like look with a Bologna construction like a Tremezzi. I much prefer those brands (sleeker) over more traditional styles of AE, Alden, etc.

I can't keep both, so curious for any opinions on which. Some similarities but pretty different shape and details. Both about $125-150 after tax and found sizes that fit well.

I actually own the first one.. not as long and elongated as some of their other styles but its stood up quite well after a year of owning it.

Just curious, any particular reason you prefer that one? Maybe because it's slightly rounder/less elongated? I was actually leaning toward the first as I thought it's a little sleeker/"cooler" with the no upturn and slimmer sole profile. Thanks for the suggestion.

Actually it is the cleaner transition between adjacent leather pieces. When it comes to toe shape I like the more chiseled and rounder versions equally. Comparing elongation is sort of futile unless you have a photo of both shoes in same size side-by-side.

B wins by a mile. I don't like how the cap and side are raised on the first one.

Thanks for the feedback. I should also point out that A is a leather sole (with basically a toppy front), while B is a rubber sole. Both are channeled (harder to see in first pic).
