“The pursuit of perfection, with simple, classic designs and attention to detail, has been our family essence for three generations.”

So what exactly is Bologna construction? It is a method of constructing leather shoes that focus on comfort and style. The leather upper is first formed into a “tube” or “bag” shape before it is put on the last. While the top part of the upper is lined normally, the lower part is lined with a soft leather insole. Bologna construction eliminates the need for a mid-sole and not only allows the shoe to fit more like a glove for your feet, but also allows for exceptional flexibility.
Despite being Spanish-made, the Bologna construction helps to give Magnanni shoes a bit of an Italian flair. This includes an elongated toe when compared to English-styled shoes. Customers enjoy the comfort and buttery soft leather of Magnanni shoes. We recommend that you use a pair of shoe trees to keep your Magnannis in top shape.
