    They should release a 'MOR-O'-MORA' model.
    Features:
    -Chisel toe (or for Vox, interchangeable toeboxes: round, oval, chisel, pointy, etc)
    -Scotchgrain & shell cordo options please
    -include colour options like Cognac, Merlot & Chestnut
    -brass buckles
    -Double sole option
    -Cushier insoles
    This is an AE double monk I would buy in a pinch, in every colour;
    basically a cross between a Lobb 'William' and a Crockett & Jones 'Lowndes'

    You have too much black in your heart's ancestry. They're like anti-points.

    Pssst! Let me tell you a secret. They're not that nice. The heel's too low, they have a 360 degree welt and the last is too flat. .

    You're doing it wrong. If you search the seconds you will eventually find a pair where the heel was produced too high and they accidentally used a more appealing last. This is why AE seconds > AE firsts.

    I have a pair of suede moras and they make me very happy.

    This

    I DO NOT support this.

    I'm also writing a letter to Allen Edmonds asking them to continue to discontinue producing the Mora.

    It won't remain a cult shoes if everybody has them.

    Good, but I need more feeling.

    By the time this threak hits 25 pages and become epic, I expect better contributions from Vox.

    I wonder how many of you would choose the Mora at full retail over the similarly priced English comps at Pediwear.
