    Where? Where! ...I would have jumped all over those at $250. I am sure you know how much those retail for.

    depending on the pair, the JLs look great with that buckle configuration and no toe cap. for standard double monks....def toe cap.

    Also, I vote for the plain-toe monks.

    Wow. Those are gorgeous. Croc is probably a bit out of my price range, though I've never checked.
