Managed to snag a pair of these today in cigar for about $200.
Goodyear welted, Italian leather, clearly "modelled" after Alden...but benchmade in China.
There's another thread on these badboys, but it's filled with obscure banter and only a couple actual wearer comments.
Any thoughts on these shoes? I liked the look and feel, but could use the $200 if they're not at least very good quality.
