Looks great but

These Blackstones look great but I think I'll trade out the leather laces. They are hard to tie and untie as you have to adjust at each hole. The sole pad may need a little buildup in the arch for my flatter feet. Per the Fit Guide I ordered size 44. Thought I was a 43 and that size would not have fit. Would prefer that the toe was a little wider and rounder. Above the heel reinforcement the suede seems too pliable until laced up and tied. They look cool and ruff but in reality seem to be a little too precious. Not an all day shoe. Glad I got them on sale. In retrospect the DM49 Suede Sport Chukka boot in Flag color may have been a better choice. I'm not really a sneaker wearer and am used to looking at the toes of my Keens. I'll just have to get used to these shoes.
