    @jet-stream, how are the J Rendenbach leather soles holding up? I haven't worn my double monks in conditions more strenuous than the carpeted floor at work, so my soles are still pristine.

    Picked a Uetam 6.5 pair at outlet and was told it's their system issue, actually the pair didn't existed.
    Anyone have tried the Pina Last?

    Pretty darn well. This was the third wear and it basically looks like they've just been grazed with sandpaper. Photo below has some discoloration because there was an apparently unforseeable thunderstorm and I had to walk on wet pavement. Even still, very little wear. In retrospect, I would probably do the metal toe taps though ...

    (Look at the waist on these!)

    The rubber on the heel is impressive too. I'm moderately hard on heels but these show zero wear.

    ON the brown suede whole cuts, is the sole near the toe the only defect?
