These look great - just got the same, but in calf and with white buckle. Nice! I went for the brass buckle as I just always prefer that color for anything bling related. Damn, those F monks were the last thing I needed to see.. It's an amazing last. Yep. F-last is one of, if not THE best RTW classic round toe last out there. That and EG 202 in C and D widths.
