Note: These shoes are being offered in a made-to-order run exclusively through Massdrop. Please see below for sizing and production information. At checkout, you'll have your choice of color (black, burgundy, cedar, dark brown, or dark brown suede), size (UK 5–12), and width (UK E or F).
The Magnolia captoe is a Goodyear-welted shoe featuring a classic design that complements formal and professional attire. Each shoe is crafted in Spain using black calf leather from Germany, dark brown suede from England, or burgundy calf leather, cedar crust calf leather, or dark museum brown leather from Italy. The shoe is built on the original TMG last to give it a classic rounded toe shape.
Due to the lead time required to secure the leather from Italy, Germany, and England, and build the shoes in Spain, the Magnolia captoes have an estimated lead time of 3 to 4 months. Note that although the lead time is substantial, it is competitive with made-to-order runs from other high-end shoe companies. For instance, brands like Alden, Alfred Sargent, Edward Green, Gaziano & Girling, and more often have lead times of 6 to 18 months.
These shoes generally fit true to size. To convert US to UK sizing, subtract one from your US size. For example, if you measure size 10D US on a Brannock device, your UK size would be 9E UK. For more information on sizing, see this page.
