I agree, I initially saw @ Phukettes photos of the Shioner 600R and even though they looked great I still wasn't convinced. It was only when I went into store and saw them IRL that I saw how great they were. Tried them on but figured I would wait for sale. Going to pick them up in London next Sunday!
Not quite sure, my nearest Diesel store is 3 hours away so I only really visit the ones in London or at Bluewater, and that is not very often. I know they were definitely available online though, couldnt comment about stores!
I actually found these to come up much bigger than any other shoes I own. I tried on both the black and beige pairs at Christmas, as they were on sale. I am usually a 7 or 7.5 in most shoes but the Thors in a size 7 came up massive. I have been looking for a 6.5 at a decent price ever since.
Yeah they are too spaced out. Really not sure how I can do it properly though. I have had advice about crinkling them together with my hands but cant see how I will get the pegs on to keep them in place!
I am going to wash them tonight, cover them in starch once they are done and try to shape them before hanging them out to dry.
