Sounds more like contemplation (if I may use a different model) instead of denial. biggrin.gif

Wow, haven't been on here for a while!

I had the grained leather version which use to sell in the US for retail at $670

The bottom sole was unique and have never seen anyone else do it.

The quality of the leather was disappointing, as it stayed as hard and uncomfortable as a rock...never adjusting/stretching to my foot.

if that's corrected grain, it looks to be a very nice corrected grain.

I also love the big broguing and gimping and metal eyelets.

Talk to isshi about these. I warned him about buying a pair.Trouble was they were beautifully hand finsished but an early foray into corrected grain which has killed their resale when the odd pair pops up.

Lotsa plastic in it. Those creases in the pics are while they are still NOS. what a shame!!!

these are mine and they have been ok (just ok)
