    They have great styles at good prices and I mainly use them for my rain beater shoes. If you don't mind blake stitched, I wouldn't bother resoling them but then again, I haven't worn out a pair yet...

    They are very trendy & stylish shoes I mainy buy them for there looks I use them & Carmina as every day shoes they all can be found around 300$ unless I paying for Carmina shell I normally don't pay more than 300$ or tops 400$ For Carmina calf. I personally consider both beater shoes. For what I paid for them they both are not bad at all.

    I also have a few magnanni's. Contrary to the bashing against magnanni on this styleforum. I find their quality leather and design better than Allen Edmonds.

    I also find compared to my allen Edmonds their attention to detail,outsole and overall leather quality longer lasting than AE. They use leather stacked heel while AE used paper board heels. Only flaw is that half on the insole is not leather, but pink paper board. I am comparing both of them because they are.prices in same range in the US.
    Surprisingly their sole is pretty hardwearing up to date.

    I recently bought two carmina two months ago. I do think my carmina is overall a nicer shoes, but again I am comparing to the double monk miro that are priced at $325. I don't know how they would compare against the SELLECION models or opanka artisano models which design wise are very unique almost G&G style.

    I think design wise they are the closest thing to Santoni and G&G.

    I agree with you 100% magnanni are very good bang for the buck and in my opinion they go hand to hand with carmina. I do prefer carmina shell & few exotic like crock & DM buffalo like the one soak has. But you can't beat magnanni for the price I also have miro DM tobacco color. Very good shoes as far as artistic & beauty & sharpness goes I would say magnanni is up there with G&G & santoni looks wise. By the way I got my miro DB for 240$ And I use magnanni & carmina for my beater every day shoes.

    From my experience, Magnanni runs half size big.
    Recently I got one boot in a very nice price. Waiting for winter.......

    Those look pretty pointed, do you ever get ratstabber jokes wearing them?

    I like them I am not going to lie and I also like there look to me they are very sharp I have miro DM 2 of them, suede DM & few others so far I am not disappointed it would be nice if they had shell which is rare. But definitely good value for money.

    Did you buy them full price? Some folks mentioned that they are not worth full price

    Do you have miro in tobacco and black?
