Good Price for Magnanni Shoes?

I came across three pairs of Magnannis under $200 (1 at $200, one $180, and 1 at $150). Are these prices the best I will find and should I grab all three (or only the $150 pair) or should I wait it out and keep looking. The retail listed was $300-$400 for each.

They're all the same size and the fit was fantastic! Each pair was a different style and color. Not sure if I'm going to find a better deal for this quality of shoe, but I figured I'd throw it out to Style Forum for some feedback. The store is holding them until this evening for me.

So, do I take the plunge at these prices or hold off in hopes of a better deal?!?!

I would say $100-$150 is a good deal for them if that is all you can muster to spend on shoes. However, I wouldn't buy them just because they are on sale. If you can afford to get shoes for $300 - $400 you have much better options.

$150 is a good price for sure. $180 still ok.

If it was something you REALLY like, then $200 would be ok too but I think you can get better options if you're willing to hunt.

It really depends on which Magnanni line it is, but 40-50% or more off is pretty good.

Love my Lorcas.

Thanks to those who've responded. I need a few pairs of shoes, hence I was looking to spend around $400-$500 on several pairs, rather than $400 on just one pair, and the Magnannis on sale seemed like a good opportunity to get more bang for my buck.

By the sound of what people are saying, the $150 pair is worth it (assuming I like them and they fit well) but the other two may not be quite the value.

I plan to go back and decide, but thanks for the input. if anyone else has an opinion, I'm all ears!

Magnanni offers an excellent value and can be had at or below the prices you have listed. One thing to look out for (for anyone else who searches and comes across this thread) is that they run half to a full size large in some cases. I wear a 12 in Magnanni and 12.5-13 in other brands.
