    I am stumbling onto this old thread too. I too agree that people put too much focus on shoe construction. I for one never had the sole of a shoe replaced and nor do I intend to do so ever. I have no problem throwing away a fully used up pair of shoes and buying new ones.

    I have just acquired a couple of Magnannis, and I love the styling. They are nice, sleek, and comfortable indeed. These shoes are like slim fit attires - they are not for everybody and you need to have the height and slim physic to pull it off.

    Buying shoes just so they last you 20 years is doing it wrong. That is unless you lived through the great depression. Refresh your style every 5 to 10 years and enjoy the process.

    As far as Magnanni, they're okay in my book. Not a great shoe, but not bad at all.

    Magnanni shoes are hand made in Spain. They are truly a work of art. You get compliments mostly from fine high class women not from men who don't know shit. They are the La Ferrari of shoes.

    Most on this Forum have a stricter definition of handmaking shoes than you do. It's true that Bologna constructed shoes like Magnanni are not bad, but one can do much better..
