I tried on a pair of these (at Barney's in Boston I think). The leather/shell was very nice and they were comfortable but --- I thought they were pretty ugly. And I typically like chunky boots. Somehow, the toe seemed way too round and bulbous. Before seeing them IRL, I was quite interested in them but at that price, I couldn't get past the toe box.
Saw a pair of the 721 at the AE store in Minneapolis around a year ago and stared at them for a long time. No matter how much I stared at them I couldn't feel the love. In fact it got worse the more I looked at them and the poor wingtip design had a lot to do with it. The 744 is the captoe, not the wingtip. Was it this one (744 Limited that Mario mentioned) that you guys saw? I didn't even know these existed.
