Picked up the last pair of original (Turkish handmade) HELM Ray Rays in black leather. They now make everything in the USA, so these will probably come back in the next couple of seasons in a similar form.
Usually about $450, they were on sale down to $200 since they have been on the shelf since forever, and then they had a one-day 50% off sale... putting them at $100. Had to.
My first "real" black pair of shoes/boots.
