    Can't believe I'm agreeing with you on something. I don't mind a shoe having a heel but those are just too chunky. Reminds me too much of sorority girls and slouchy boots.

    They're cuban heels.

    That's the point.

    I sized down two, and it was kind of brutal at the get-go. They've stretched to become pretty comfortable at this point, although I can't fit an insole into them yet (partially because I haven't figured out what insole will work with the ridiculously narrow profile).

    I will make it.

    My grail outerwear piece is within inches of acquisition, and when that happens I think i'll enforce no kops for the rest of 2012.

    I bought those Butteros. Months ago.

    edit: just to clarify -- I mean literally that exact pair, that guy does not have them to sell anymore.

    It's probably not really grail-like, actually.
    It's just a really nice, relatively simple technical piece of outerwear with a liner.
    My wardrobe has enough loud pieces and I think this will be a good addition.
    I will link once I've bought! don't want it selling out.
