You're absolutely right. The upside, though, is that they are flexible to change design upon request (at a surcharge of course). One interesting thing: I spoke to Ethan of the Armoury a couple of weeks ago. Apparently they are having Koji Suzuki designing shoes for StC (a few of them already have appeared on the Armoury's blog) Best of two worlds!
