yay, these arrived. One came stuffed with the finance section of an italian newspaper from 2005.
super soft leather. Right one fits a bit slimmer than the left for some reason, I'm guessing the left one may have been on a display rack, and tried on a few times, thus the newspaper.
I imagine if I wear these a ton, they should develop a pretty cool patina. I'm half tempted to rub some polish around the toe to darken it a bit, but I don't know if thats something I can undo, so I guess I'll hold off.
