Forgot to ask @gorebug how’s the quality on those Cuci shoes? Never held a pair so unsure of how they are vs. AE/Church’s/Alden etc
Meh... I should do a more full comparison for people with some pictures vs other brands, but I'm not impressed.

Blake stitched, bulbous last, and the leather creases awkwardly. Stitch density and the 'fine-ness' of the pinking, broguing and toe medallion is also cruder than what I'd expect from C$1,000 shoes. The insole/sock-liner is lovely so they rank better than the Doc Marten's I thrifted the week prior.

I agree very unimpressive shoes.

Those Fluevog and Magnanni shoes... what in the world happened when those were designed?

You answered your own question - there was no ‘design’ in the process…
