Bruno Magli 'Raging' Slip-On
Simply stated, when I took them out of the box, in Black ,they were so ugly I immediatley packed them up for return. The shoe is very clunky looking; no style and looks "huge." I checked off the "Fit Rating" only because it's required but I never showed my husband the shoe nor did he try it on. I gave the shoe 1 Star solely based upon the fact they were not pleasing to "My Eye." My husband loves Bruno Magli (14 pair this year) but ... not these. I ordered two (2) pair. One in his regular size 9 1/2 , Medium and the other in size 9 ... based upon reviews to size down. The size 9, Medium, looked like huge clunkers:-( Unfortunatley, I cannot recommend these shoes for a professional, well-dressed man.
I usually having nothing but great experiences shopping at Nordstrom, but unfortunately this time hasn't been good.
I ordered the 'Raging' slip-on in both brown and black in two separate orders, having owned a black pair for the last two years. In both cases I ordered 13W, as I have as my wife likes to say 'Fred Flinstone' feet.
The brown came and fit perfect. I wear them to work at least 2X a week and my feet feel as good in the evening as when in the AM when I first slip them on. The black pair has been another matter altogether. I'm on my third pair; having to go back to the store four times for return and shipping me a replacement pair. The first pair was far too snug, and I was talked into having them stretched. Nope, had to go back. The second pair fit great but squeaked, and this last pair is again too snug. They're going back on Saturday. My advice is only buy these if the store has them in stock.
New uncomfortable design
Terrific quality shoe that I have been buying for over eight years. However, the latest design with a low profile and greater length makes this shoe not very comfortable; the leather at the in-step "buckles" and the back top edge of the shoe (being a lower cut) digs into the heel and makes things very uncomfortable. Since I am a loyal Bruno Magli customer, I kept the shoes and had them stretched and the heel area softened. They feel OK, but nothing like the older style of this shoe. I would recommend the new style only to those with flat feet and a very low ankle bone.
Wow, what a great feel to this shoe. It looks nice and feels like a million dollars. I cannot imagine a more comfortable shoe. I bought a half size smaller than I normally wear and it was a perfect fit. I got them at a great price during the anniversary sale but they are probably worth full price too.
