OUTSOLE: TR+ leather welt
SIZE GUIDE: This runs normal in size.
I really wanted to like these shoes - they look great and they are super comfortable after the obligatory breaking in period, BUT: sadly, the breaking in period also seems to be wearing out period - The craftmanship is simply abysmal. When they arrived, the stiching around the opening was already faulty on both shoes, but since I liked them, I sent the shoes to the shoemaker. A week later, the brown leather around the sole began to loosen and come apart - once more to the shoemaker.... now, after a year of limited use, the soles on both shoes are loosening from the upper part and the brown leatherband looks terrible.
Apart from the fact that I liked the looks, I bought these shoes because they were made in Europe = proper craftmanship, proper payment and treatment of the workers and certain environmental standards to uphold. What I got was a potentially great pair of shoes that sadly seems hellbent on dissolving around my feet in the shortest timespan possible. This is what I would expect from a 10€ pair of sneakers, not from a 100€+ pair.
You need to do a LOT better!!
