I, too, am not really feelin the new shape. Not sure if it's because the size is big/long, but it doesn't look good. I'm on the waitlist but now I'm feelin iffy. Not only is there negative feedback on here, but I've seen similar comments made over in the KanyeToThe - fashion section, specifically the chelsea boot thread there. He needs to post more/clearer pics of the actual boots, so if anyone receives some, please post them.
