That's funny! They're holding up very well, I must say - more rolls and creasing than in the pictures above now. I've just got myself a very stiff horsehair brush and that's really helping with bringing out the shine on my shell shoes. I haven't done that to these shoes yet but that's the plan for tonight and I'll post some updated pics soon.
how do you like the fit. are they tight? in hindsight, would you have preferred a captoe?
