Had this posted in the "cool shoes . . " thread. Perhaps a little obscure so I am posting a new thread. EL72 already suggested that perhaps some may argue that C&Js may be a better deal at $400 from plal. Thanks EL72. My question is more absolute I guess, Should I keep these? They fit remarkable well, perhaps just as well as the handgrades I tried on at the C&J at T&A store in the city a couple of weeks back! Was at the NMLC store this weekend and saw this one pair of Platinum Maglis. They were marked at $420 but with additional discount I ended up paying approx $340. Almost passed them up because they were stacked in the 8.5 rack. I figured I would take them, check the price on the web (cheapest I saw was $402) and get fora members' opinion. Yes they are no JLs or EGs but I think they are a nice pair and actually looks a little better in flesh: http://www.shoes.com/product.asp?cat...687522=Generic I am interested in your thoughts. "Thumbs up and keep" or "down and return before the 30 day period lapses"?
