I recently have gained an interest in mid to high end shoes and I was hoping the forum could help me out. I recently found a pair of Magnanni Toranzo shoes, at a Neiman Marcus Last Call store, that I really wanted to buy. The reason I decided to pass on them was because they were asking $340 for the shoes, and as you can see in the link Nordstrom Rack closed them out at $219. It just didn't seem like that great of a deal, no matter how much I liked them. Well, since that day I have regretted not buying them, which is a very odd feeling for someone who has always hated shopping. I was wondering if you guys could point me to a similar pair of shoes that would be worth the investment. I want to make sure that if I invest that amount of money on a pair of shoes, that they will last me the next 5-10 years. Any suggestions?

Skoaktiebolaget is one of our Affiliate Vendors and I can tell you personally that their service is excellent. You can also take a look at Meermin is the low-mid $300 price range. If you are willing to spend a tad more you can start to look into Carmina, who have a lot of monk strap styles.
