    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.

    I concur.

    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.
