^ I'm pretty fond of the current generation of A diciannoveventitre lace-ups, aside from the actual laces (bleh, metal tips). I was in San Fran's Archive a while back and they impressed me more than anything else there.

No, it's fine. It was just a casual comment.
I can only speak anecdotally and anything CCP on SZ bores me (my pair was inherited secondhand), so I have no idea what the current bandwagon is regarding him. In my case I had zipper issues within two months and almost tore out the heel within I think four. Which can absolutely be abnormal, especially as I'm pretty hard on footwear, but I wear CDiem or In Aisce normally and the tornadoes felt below par. Not Rick levels of below par, but below par.
Leather or footwear obsessives aren't the ones buying CCP anyway, so it's a moot point.
