I am not at all trying to challenge you on this point as I (and others I am sure) have also had this thought, but I would like to ask you: What specifically about them makes you uneasy? It seems that the leather sources are quite good. Some issues have been reported on soles, but those are fairly easily replaced. While it is not something you want to happen on shoes, it would not decrease their longevity. Thoughts?
quality control seems really inconsistent, lots of sole separation issues, etc. leather also seems to be very stiff when new.
I plan to order a few LMs, but i really think the quality of these shoes is not quite up to par.
