Fritzl,

At the beggining I though the same about the buckles than you, but I have to say that they grew on me. I think that they looked ugly at first just because they are different and we are not used to them.

All my doubts disappeard once I had the shoes on. This last in a Monk is extraordinary and very elegant, and they fit is amazing since day one. I'll post some pictures in the future with them on my feet.

I was looking for other JL monks, but once I tried them I had to buy them. They are the most elegant double monks I have seen, and I used to hate double monks.

On the heel block... Can you elaborate a bit more? What exactly do you mean?

Thanks and regards.

i don't like double monks. end of story.

the heel block is out of proportion in relation to the delicate last. you can or you can't.

taste is not objective. wear them in good health.

Might have to explain to Spoo what 'price' means. smile.gif

Although I have another boot in mind that blows his recent boot acquisition away. NAMOR might agree...

Newest acquisition: Church's model Consul in medium-brown crocodile leather, last 100, with beautiful patina.

They are not offering this last anymore; does anyone know when they discontinued it?

Sutor is much under-rated, I think. They still have the stigma they developed when they focused on their "ultra-Italian" styles (ie: heavily squared toes and/ or ultra elongated and pointy lasts). In recent times they have come out with a very nice classic line. These boots are a fine example, i'd say.

Not the 'challenge' boots (those are a new shell/pebble calf MTO by Alfred Sargent) but I do believe Spoo expressed 'passing' interest in these:

For now, best pseudo-Spoo angle pic. DC Lewis #8 Horween Shell Bal Boots

Fritzl: different angle but unfortunately worse lighting
