Kafka softee grain Stows. After a day of wear, I can say yes, they're more flexible than the usual double leather commando Stow. But it's not like they're Gucci driving loafers. They're still plenty beefy.
I suspect the recent prices hikes are mostly due to the GBP being near historical lows. From the US perspective, they're the same or cheaper than they've ever been.
