Massimo Dutti (Magnanni) shoes online?

Does anyone know where I can buy Massimo Dutti shoes online? I think they are produced by Magnanni, so if they have their own brand with the same styles I guess that will also do.

I have a pair of black toecap oxfords from Massimo Dutti, and they seem like very good shoes for the price (only 95€ for shoes with leather soles is the cheapest I have seen in retail anywhere in Norway, and the quality seems decent--all other oxfords I have seen have been 300€ and above). Since I know they fit me well, I was thinking of getting a brown wingtip or brogue on the same last. Seeing as the current selection in retail stores where I live is very limited, I don't expect to find any here, so ordering online seems like the best option.

I have bought 3 pairs of MD shoes over the past 5 years while traveling to Europe - two loafers and one balmoral. They are real nice shoes for the price (IIRC, I got all 3 for a total of approx ~$250). The shoes have a short life span, and I don't believe all the MD are made by Mangnanni, but I could be wrong.

Unfortunately not, you can't find them online. Massimo Dutti doesn't have an online store. Occasionally someone is selling a pair in the B&S forum, but that's just about it, AFAIK.

Use the search function, these shoes have been discussed here before, in several threads.

You could check the Magnanni web site (http://www.magnanni.com/), but the styling is a bit different. The top line especially has something that in other threads has been referred to as the "side tumor" (sic!).

Just the other day I bought a pair of brown cap-toed monk straps for 55 euros (discounted from 135), and they seem of decent quality. Blake construction with open channeled soles and the uppers aren't half bad.

How short are we talking here? One year and a burst of profanity, or three years and a shrug?

I think he means how long a given model is available for sale, but I could be mistaken. When I was in the store I noticed they had a very limited selection of pretty much anything, and it appeared as if they changed their stock frequently, so I'm guessing the models (and possibly manufacturers) may also change every season.

They do have a short shelf-life. The models change at least once every season (a bit infrequently, for an Inditex firm).

Yeah, that's what I suspected. That's one of the main reasons why I find it so frustrating trying to buy stuff at "designer" stores, because they only have what I want whenever that item or style is currently "in season", which I usually have no clue about when happens. I guess I was lucky with the oxfords.

I can always visit the store every three months to see if they have come up with anything I like, but I prefer to be able to buy what I want when I want it, not when any given brand or chain store decides that what I want is now "hip". EDIT: I did manage to find a similar style shoe in brown wingtip by searching online, but alas, it turns out it's from the 2007 season and thus no longer available (even the link to the item on their web site no longer works...)

massimo dutti had tons of linen shirts for 39 euros - but I did not know the quality of the brand so I did not want to buy something that would end up just being like an old navy type quality.

Massimo Dutti's stuff is "Affordable Luxury". It is certainly a completely difference league than Old Navy. Most of the stuff is very high end fabric, but they disappoint in suits. Their casual, woolen, and other stuff such as bags and watches, are fabulous. So are their shirts and ties. But the suits can be better quality. They'll get there I'm sure. It's a fast upcoming brand, and in the Spanish Inditext group (which also runs the trendy Bershka and Zara) it's the high end being. When the brands get settled, MD will surely be a notch above.

Curious, last week I saw a Canali cloned ones ( 350 euros the originals) for 150. The quality was top plastic, plastic sole, awful and overprices for Massimo.

Why not to pay well 350 for a 8 out of 10 shoes instead of being smartalecked for a 2 out of 10 , 150 euros overpriced Massimo ones?

I wouldn´t pay even 5 for those.

Massimo Dutti and Magnanni shoes are in different leagues, MD shoes are made by thousands in different parts of the world, mostly India and Portugal meanwhile Magnanni are made exclusively in Spain at a different scale.

Magnanni shoes use the Bologna construction, that makes them very, very comfortable. Leathers are treated with different patina that gives a luxurious finishing and definitely are more stylish and better looking than Massimo Dutti which have a more affordable price, being suitable daily hard use. I own different pairs of both brands and I can tell the difference...

If you live at the USA, you can get their shoes online at the following page:
http://www.massimodutti.com/us/en/

If you live in another place, you can check "Change Country" at their main page to verify if on line shopping is available at your country.
