    I bought the same shoes at Rack. I own a few pairs of AE's and absolutely love them, and these are (and I hate to say it) more comfortable than my AE's. Not as good of quality but great beaters that look nice and super comfortable :D

    hey question for you
    did the shoe leather break in and get softer?
    because the upper leather is really stiff in my shoes... kinda hurts the instep when i walk
    i've worn them to work 2 days so far
    really starting to regret the purchase... unless if the shoes will break in and get better after some wear

    I had the same issue...bought a pair of AE's and they hurt like crazy at first. As I keep wearing them, they get softer and more comfortable. Now I love them.

    Be careful with the sleeker look. It looks very silly in professional situations when someone is wearing trendy italian looking shoes.

    I had a similar experience - I purchased a pair of AE Strands from a NRack for $179 and the right shoe fit me perfect but the left shoe killed my foot. I had the left shoe slightly stetched at a shoe repair store then they broke in great after about 10 wearings.

    My Magnannis hurt for the first few wears. Then they broke in and were a go-to. These were penny loafers (chiseled).

    For the price I paid ($110 NIB) I couldn't be happier, but I exercise caution looking at another pair.

    wearing the magnanni espinosa for the 3rd or 4th time today
    i swapped out the shoe tree to a slightly bigger one and left the shoes alone for several days
    (didn't dress up over the long weekend + i wore my new peal & co. yesterday)
    maybe that helped because the shoes feel somewhat better today

    'Leather Upper' + 'Man-made Sole' leads me to suspect they may be rubber-soled, so consider that.

    I've owned many Magnanni's, but eventually moved on to Italian brands (primarily Santoni, which most of their styling is a copy of). They're good shoes for the 300 or less range, but I wouldn't pay more than that. Since you're not, could be a good deal.

    Then again I don't wear pointy shoes anymore anyhow, but YMMV.

    I went with Allen Edmonds Mora 2.0 instead for cheaper. I was on the fence because I dislike the slight gradient on the toe and the heel.
