      I don't know guys. Something missing for me in m_moria. They are just too polished, too "gentleman goes out on a Sunday stroll." They look more at home with the Pitti Uomo look rather than with rock'n'roll that was CDiem.

          I dunno. Mine broke in pretty well after a couple of months.

          To each their own, certainly, but they don't have to stay shiny if you don't want 'em to.

            I meant more than "shiny" when I said "polished." Maybe these will go better with Paul Harnden now. Still not rock'n'roll.

                I felt like Faust at first but i can see now how they can be integrated to the altieri universe with some wear. I would adopt Tabula's method and wear them to the ground if i owned a pair....(they look much better in that photo and the last is definitely attractive).

                  I should make mention that the last is the A last with a slightly more upturned toe as compared to the AA.

                    These were exactly my thoughts Faust. As much as I love the craftsmanship and quality there is just something missing. It is a bit too gentlemen like. They are beautiful though.

                      i feel the same way, unfortunately. hopefully he still has other projects in the works.

                        Agreed, I find them an unusual shoe to be considering especially when you look at their price. I can't really say I've heard an argument for them that sets them apart from some more traditional italian brand. I just can't see where the desire comes from

                          I don't really get the hype accusation here. I'm pretty sure you will never see m_moria up for sale on the nauseous hype section of grailed

                            Well I edited the post, but looks like it's stuck in a quote now. Different quantity of hype, sure, but I feel like any other shoe looking like m_moriabc would not be met with the same desire without having the history of cdiem behind it..

                              And speaking of "polished", I also like super traditional gentlemanly styles; these Aldens should be delivered tomorrow. ;-)

                                I also don't think it's hype - they are definitely very well-made shoes and are beautiful in their own right. I can understand why someone would want a pair.
