I was walking past the Florsheim store in my local mall and spotted a pair of tan double monks in the window. They had a cap toe with dark antiquing on the toe and heel, and were on a chisel toed last. I thought they looked nice, although the outer sole was not very impressive.

They were part of the Royal Imperial group made in Spain. The retail price was $350 but they were on sale for 25% off. The salesman said that he could give me an extra 15% off.

Does anyone know who makes the shoes or can speak to their quality?

Did you not ask the salesperson?
Also, without a photo or model name of the shoe this question cannot be accurately answered.

Yes, I did ask the salesperson. He did not know who makes the shoes.

I did not have my camera with me and I could not find a picture of the shoes on the net. I realize that you are unable to help me but I think that, perhaps, someone on SF may be familiar with the current Royal Imperial line and may be able to speak about them without the need for a photo or model name.
