5x and yes they are, stans are garbage.
As far as high end shoes go, I can justify spending some more money for JL or EG at discount because they will certainly last longer than something like J&M or the like
We sincerely hope you continue to buy those and not these.

It's all subjective, but it does get kind of annoying that this comes up every time someone mentions these shoes...

I know nothing about leather, and have no idea if this would happen to any shoe or not.
Overall it was a disappointing experience with such an expensive shoe. I think they look great in pictures, but (discounting the yellow-ness) was not enamoured with them in person.
No problems here.

If shoes give you an erection I think you have other more important things to worry about. PS. Everyone else including myself thinks the stamp is genius.
