    Fritzl, you know me, I don't care about convention, I like the shoes. I think Barker Black's are overpriced for what they are--but I would prolly buy those if I could get em.

    which is a good thing. i'm not talking about BB, but look at this particular pair. cripples all over, the lacing is wonky and distorted, hence my waste press comment.

    Yes, agreed. Easily remedied. Some of the BB models are nice looking but all appear over priced to me--maybe a bit harsh.

    imo, they don't fit correctly. that's all. at this stage this cannot be remedied easily, imo.

    Thanks! I didn't specify anything other than just make sure the apron is balanced as I've seen some that appear lopsided.

    You know, this is the second pair of shoes that you have said this about of mine. I think all of the ripples are caused by my odd feet. I think you are evaluating shoes based on fit, which is kind of irrelevant to do with shoes unless they are bespoke. I would have a major issue if these were bespoke and creased like this, but if you look below at two pairs of shoes that I own you see some similaraties. I really think it is because I have yet to find a shoe that fits my high arch and high instep correctly.
