HAMLIN DOUBLE MONK
Full grain leather uppers
Full leather lining
Cork and leather midsoles
Two straps, USA made calfskin and lots of style. The Hamlin Double Monk will effortlessly steal the show wherever you are.
Great pair of shoes, some loose stitching particularly on the straps but overall the shoes look and feel great. Very sturdy as well.
These are a well made shoe. The stitching is solid (no loose stitches), the color is spot on with the picture, and they have a gorgeous shine out of the box. The problem is that they won't fasten enough to prevent heel slip. With the buckle as tight as it will go, the elastic side of the strap is still loose. The width of the shoe is great and they are indeed the size I ordered. It just seems a poor measurement for the strap. This is my second purchase from John Doe. My first purchase from them are the best fitting shoes I've ever owned. If they'd hadn't done such a good job the first time, I wouldn't be so critical now.
Leather feels nice, and shoes fit well. First pair of John doe shoes and I'm extremely satisfied. Will purchase more in the future.
First pair of John Doe shoes, and first pair of shoes that I have purchased over $100. I expected the color to match the picture, not the name (Brandy), but in reality it is a lot more red than the picture shows. The left side of my right shoe arrived slightly damaged. The sole is chipped, and a bit further back, a part of the welt is poorly constructed. There is also a noticeable scuff mark on the upper leather, followed by a shallow scratch (but the indentation from it can still be felt) which seemed to have came from a nail. The shoes are otherwise very nice and comfortable.
