How did I do with this RL Kelby?

Got it in my size for a total of $120 after various discounts and gift certificates. Assuming it will fit well did I do alright? I'm worried about quality as I happen to really like the looks of this shoe. Return shipping is free so at the very least I am only inconvenienced slightly if I need to return it. Thoughts?

Return them, buy some Clarks desert boots, and save $20.

Does anyone know where these are made? All it said on Amazon is that they are made in Italy.

My apologies. I meant to ask does RL make them themselves or does another shoe company make them for them.

What I'm really asking is how do they fare compared to other high end shoes? (Can they be put in the same category as say Alden?)

Does not stack up with the quality of leather used. I've seen the kelby in stores and there were mediocre.

Construction wise, probably doesn't matter. It's crepe soles so they'll wear out before anything happens.
