I've never handled it, so I can't say that. But it is very expensive for such basic items. The value proposition isn't there for me, but it clearly is for you, and that's good.

I was talking more about the other stuff.  I don't care if a giant fur coat is good quality, you know? So I'd rather pay $50 for it since I'm only gonna wear it once in awhile.  It's a good opportunity to have fun with design without spending a fortune.

^Sometimes its good to laugh at yourself be a bit ridiculous and not have to spend $1000 doing so.

It's not like buying a $50 boot is the same as taking out a one year lease on a $500 boot. They didn't feel like they would break in very well or be very comfortable and they seemed like they would look cheaper as they aged. Also, they were 199 euros so I was judging them on that at the time. Obviously for under a hundred bucks you could do a lot worse.

Ha yea if H&M offered those boots at $50 at the same quality level, with no brand affiliation, and very likely still buy them (and wouldn't have to go through a proxy either...). At the right price, expendable clothing is a "forgivable sin," (lol) we can't all afford the best of every piece all the time, especially with alternatives.

They're are shoes. They're not supposed to have soul. As long as they don't lack sole, I'm fine.

They felt exactly like wearing h&m shoes - very uncomfortable.

That's your personal experience though, I find them very comfortable, surprisingly so considering that, well, they are leather boots
