Bruno Magli – Farfara

Look here for a slightly more sophisticated shoe. Not so sophisticated as to be tossed away with the wind and never worn. Don’t even think that, not even for a minute. These wedges, while sophisticated, are also adorable, and practical. The wedge gives you a little extra lift for those that are feeling a little on the short side of life. The peep-toe is appropriate for the winter, but also for the summer. The dark-but-not-quite-black color makes the shoe great for both day-time and night-time. (SO MANY HYPHENS!)

So who is the Bruno Magli? Cause to be honest, he isn’t a designer that I keep on my radar. Well apparently, by that statement I have just given myself an age, for had I been alive during the OJ Simpson murder trial, I would have known the name quite well. Straight from Wikipedia, since sometimes other people word things better than I can:

Bruno Magli shoes were in the spotlight during the O.J. Simpson murder trial. On June 19, 1995, FBI expert William Bodziak testified that the famous bloody shoe prints at the scene of the double murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman had been left by a size-12 pair of $230 Bruno Magli shoes (“Lorenzo” model). Simpson called the Brunos “ugly ass” shoes while denying he ever owned them. Photos were later shown to the jury of Simpson at a September 1993 football game, wearing shoes positively identified by Bodziak as size 12, Lorenzo-style Bruno Maglis. The actual shoes used during the crime have not been recovered.
