    I bought the Ron Rider NSTs before this. They also looked great but there were some issues with that particular pair and I had to return those.

    The problem with liking only sleek lasts is the same problem as only liking chunky lasts, in certain outfits you are not going to be well put together. We see that regularly on the forum. Sleek lasts are fine if that is your thing but you need to realize that an elongated super antiqued double monk with a pair of cords/jeans looks bad. A worsted DB suit with clunky shoes looks bad. There are bad extremes at both the clunky/elongated end but if you stay in the middle ground of both and wear the right style with the right outfit, both lasts have a place in everyones closet. Horses for courses.
