I just read your review.First impressions were nice. Strictly related to those pictures I posted, I thought they were nice shoes.
When I wore them after the ice in central Illinois cleared, I realized how bad they were. They went to absolute crap.
I've been honest with all you about this. I don't know what more you want out of me here?
Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. For my sins, for my sins, for my most grievous sins?
I think the issue is that it waxes poetic in a way that largely mirrors the disingenuous copy that AoL put out.
The pictures did not show particularly nice leather or finishing even before you wore them and the ceasing became evident.
There are shoes with very large caps and don't crease. If you're going to make a structured cap toe you should design it in a way that doesn't allow it to crease too badly.
The comment about fudging also sounded a bit sycophantic. If the maker fudges over the stitches properly it will always look like it lines up. Good way to make 6 spi like 13 spi. EG only fudges the edge rather than over the actual stitches.
It LOOKED like you were out of your depth reviewing the shoes, got the shoes for free, and showered them with praise. Regardless of intent the optics were poor.
