The only thing I know about Bruno Magli shoes is that they're O.J. Simpson's footwear of choice when escaping from a crime scene.  Does anyone have any opinion of their fit and quality, particularly compared to other makes around the same price point (Bally, Ferragamo, etc.)?

They are known for high quality but I think only old guys wear them.

They're good shoes, definitely in the same ballpark as Ferragamo, quality-wise. I have a pair of wonderful pair of black Magli ankle-boots that I've used and abused (including wearing them for a week straight in Venice -- normally I wear a pair of shoes about once a fortnight) and they still look gorgeous.

Keep in mind, they do have diffusion lines (Magli Sport, etc.) that are built more to a price than a quality level. But their good ready-to-wear stuff is quite good indeed.

Peace,

JG

I have a pair of Magli black cap toes for business and formal wear. As far as i can tell they are of exceptional quality and leather. Pretty comfortable as well.

Magli compares well to Bally and Ferragamo in terms of quality. Stylistically, I find Magli shoes to be a bit conservative for my tastes, although I've seen a few I wouldn't mind owning. I have one pair of pearl gray, hand-made Magli shoes that are of excellent quality. Then again, I don't often feel compelled to wear gray shoes, so they haven't had to stand up to too much stress.

It's been my experience that the quality of Bruno Magli is slightly less than that of Ferragamo. The Magli is also a much heavier shoe. That's just my two cents.
