Good to know. Appreciate the feedback.

I'm generally inclined to agree, but thought maybe my pair was peculiar or defective. Ultimately you're right, though.

In other news, still waiting on my #8 Tankers from Yenni. I paid the balance off as requested several weeks ago as supposed anticipated ship was approaching. Followed-up via email later and was told there was a delay from Alden, with tentative ship dates. Shot out another email yesterday morning inquiring for updates, and radio static. I know, pick up the phone, right? I fear I'll be too aggravated when I'm told verbally some more supposed-to, maybe, possibly, non-committal bullshit response; especially aggravated I've paid-in-full a month ago, per vendor request, for an item yet to be delivered and zero communication on expected delivery. If it wasn't for you guys vouching, I feel like any ordinary person would feel like they've been scammed.
I find this level of customer service for $710 shoes offensive.
I don't know how you guys have the patience for this.
Is this commonplace with most MTO offerings?
