I recently bought a pair. The fit wasn't right so they went back. Had the fit been right, I may have kept them, but they were poorly done. The leather would have been considered second quality by some "lesser" makers. It is a beautiful design, and had it been finished as well and used as nice of materials as I have seen on other EG shoes, it would have been up there on my list of favorites. But, frankly, it was a $300 shoe masquerading as something more.
