They really felt sturdy to you? I checked out the Montague (in black) at a local Neiman Marcus and the rubber sole made the shoe feel...incredible cheap. Compared to the 1000 Mile, it seemed very floppy and not very sturdy at all. It didn't seem like there was any leather at all in any part of the outsole, just rubber (despite the faux-leather parts).
Possible that the Montague in brown is constructed differently?
