I'm a long time reader, first time poster. You guys do a great job with this forum!!
I've been in the market for a pair of black double monks in the $300-400 range. While on the search, I ran into a great deal and jumped on it:
Got the shoes today, and the look great, except one issue.... the leather is extremely shiny!! It's described at polished, but looks almost like patent leather.... almost plasticky..... which is a no-no for me.
Does anyone have any experience with these? Is there a chance the leather is just too shiny as it new, and will dull out with wear and polishing?
Can you recommend any other options? (I already have a pair of AE Neumora in brown).
Your help and advice would be greatly appreciated!
