They look and feel even better IRL
I originally procured a pair of Åppelviken for my upcoming wedding, but size 42 was a bit small. So, I asked for an exchange. Unfortunately, size 42.5 was sold out. Hence, Lucas proposed me a pair of Vinterviken instead. My untrained eyes couldn't figure out the difference, especially given the visual similarity between the two pairs. Thus, not knowing I was initially sceptical to the proposal. However, it turns out the only difference is that, Vinterviken has a blake construction whereas Åppelviken is goodyear welted (thanks for the lesson, Lucas :) ). Lucas was gracious enough to afford me Vinterviken without me having to make up for 10€ difference. Long story short, I received the shoes a couple days later and I couldn't have been more satisfied. Great service, impeccable shoes, and affordable price. I'll be back!
I have now owned the shoes for 4 years and my guess is that I've probably used them +200 days. The shoes almost looks like new, but actually better looking.
Take care of these shoes and they will take care of you!
