    Beckett Simonon preorder came

    I will post some pics as well as my immediate impressions of the 'Hoyt' double monk strap from Beckett Simonons preorders sometime ago


    Start off by saying the sole is really good. Feels sturdy, probably the best construction of the shoe. The leather is pretty good, given the price.
    The fit, I wear a 12 and usually they're too narrow, but this fit really feels great.

    My only gripe was the pictures on the website show a little bit more of a marbling on the leather, and the leather is kind of a flat tan. Nothing some black polish couldn't fix
    the burnishing is also too "exact"

    Oh and ps the straps aren't elastic, like I've come to get used to from my neumoras from AE Ii hope they don't rip out over time. .

    Interesting. Is that burnishing on the toe or just the light?

    It's burnishing, but like I said, they're very symmetrical, and almost too 'perfect'. I plan to marble the shoes with some of my own polish, so it doesn't bother me too much.

    Haven't even worn them out of the house and the buckle is missing its peg. Hmmm. Unwearable.

    Wow! Did it arrive like that? Or instantly break? That's a bummer.

    I'm not even sure, but there's no clear return option. I'm gonna have to peruse the website. Iknow Theres a Poster who represents them, I'm curious what he has to say

    Wow, that is not acceptable. I think they are pretty active on their FB and Twitter, I would try to contact them there.

    Yeah Nicholas, but from his profile he hasn't logged on in over a month. You could PM him but he's not gonna get it if he's not around.

    Looks like free returns: http://www.beckettsimonon.com/pages/shipping-returns
    Just email them to start the process. That's really a drag after waiting a couple of months for them to have a broken buckle.
