Hello All, 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: http://www.amazon.com/a-testoni-Mens-M45483UDM-Monkstrap-Loafer/dp/B007632QTC 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!
