double monks update

my day started off with a sour note this morning when my 3 week old sid mashburn double monks fell apart.  i was devastated until i called the store and explained to them the situation.  they assured me they would fix them at no charge and have them back to me in a week.  the gentleman on the phone said this has never happened before and couldn’t believe it had only been a couple of weeks.  i was surprised too, but i’m glad they’re going to take care of them.  i miss them already.

the sid mashburn double monk strap

these shoes need no introduction; however, they do deserve better pictures.  i’m still snapping everything with my iphone after hours, so i apologize for the crappy pics.  i’ve been on a bit of a buying tear lately – some might call it retail therapy (it’s been one of those weeks).  you might remember that a couple of months ago i ordered a pair of  allen edmonds moras.  i wore them for a few days and determined they were a too big, so i sold them to a happy ebayer.  i should have started with the sid mashburn double monks.  they are perfect shoes.  if they’re not instantly your favorite shoes, then i can’t help you.  size down .5.

the moras have arrived

you might remember a couple of weeks ago when i mentioned allen edmonds were bringing back their mora double monk strap shoes for their custom collection.  it took a day of deliberation, but i ordered a pair in the chili burnished calf.  they said it would take 6-8 weeks for the shoes to arrive.  well, they surprised me last wednesday when they sent me an email saying they had shipped and would be here friday.  i missed the ups person last week, so they were dropped off this morning.  they are absolutely perfect in every way (as you can see below).  if you’re on the fence about double monks or unsure of which place you should click buy, give these a try.  you won’t be disappointed.

new work shoes

i need a new pair of brown shoes i can wear to work, but can’t decide what to get.  my two options are below.  both would be solid investments.  let me know what you think.
