Maybe a n00b-question, but won't this affect walking comfort as the heel of the shoe you normally fully utilise to walk on is reduced to a small piece of plastic?
Those are Magnanni 11005 double monks. I love how they look, the quality is less impressive. Then again, I picked them up in a sale for less than $150 so I can't really complain
Any pictures you'd like to share?
Lame. Seriously.
Thank you. Those are called 6313 (first one) and 6519 (second one). I also have a 7415 derby, as you can see below, the bottom row left (I added a picture of my current collection).
Mine are a different kind, not for every taste, but I love them.New/one year old. Loud patina, I know :-)Almost 5 years old (and in need of a good polish).I also have a derby-pair, but don't have pics at the moment.

Eh, you're kicking a dead horse here, the actual line of my post was 'they are exactly what you can expect for sub 200 euro shoes.' Unless you call the quality in that price-range the epitome of shoe craftsmanship, what exactly is your problem? I never got personal before you called my post 'a bullshit'. Why did you edit that later on anyway? If you're trying to debate this so vigorously you perhaps should stop calling my opinion 'marginal' or 'selective' or whatever the...
