If by "look alike" you mean "is also a captoe double-monk" then yes..?

Often imitated, never duplicated.

The last looks pretty darn similar to me. Doesn't look like it's Goodyear welted and has a thinner sole/heel, but a very similar shoe. Edit: Maybe I passed judgment too fast. The Mora is a lot more elongated.

That shoe is blobby. And I don't mean the AE.

If it's not elongated, it's "blobby"? I wouldn't call it blobby.

Are you blind? the first shoe is a fashion whorista reject reinterpretation homm-age to double monks. It has nearly a flat sole and the strap is different.

The Mora is a completely standard middle of the road double monk.

Why do you even bother commenting in threads which are about shoes which cost less than 1000 USD ?

I kind of like the Geller one more, though. Better color.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
