Have been buying these shoes for about 8 years so always know what I'm getting. But with this last pair it was really obvious the quality has gone downhill. They now look plasticy and cheap and are nowhere near as good a finish as they used to be. The pictures are not quite true to life, reckon theyre of the old standard not what they're producing now. Would be interested to know where they're being made now and/or when they switched materials. Shame, used to be a great shoe.
