They were on sale, in my size, and with $25 off and free shipping, they weren't that bad. I'm not entirely nuts about mid- to hi-tops, but I really liked the look of them. AMQ stands for Alexander McQueen, so there must have been some collaboration going on there. I've had good luck with Pumas in the past, so I imagine they will be comfortable.
I also ordered these, from Barneys, on sale:
Yes, I know, Pradas. I am now officially a stereotype.
I'm done with shoes for this year. Promise.
[NOTE on above: both models were made in Vietnam.]
