The great hypocrisy in Mank is the tearing down of Orson Welles. Fincher (working from his late father’s screenplay) pretends to be bravely exposing the establishment as too powerful, too much of a monopoly (while working for Netflix LOL), but all he’s really doing is protecting it against renegades and true outsiders like Orson Welles who, for all his flaws, was an iconoclast, an artistic revolutionary, an anti-establishment maverick so far ahead of his time it would take Hollywood a half-century to catch up to Citizen Kane — and Mank still shits all over him, annihilates him, punishes him, and in favor of who? A studio hack. A man who was part of The System.

They have a midsole built with extra cushioning, supported arches, a heel insert for extra support, soft linings and insoles for all-day comfort, and a foam-padded collar and tongue. But despite all of this, they are meant to be worn as just walking, everyday shoes. The outsole is durable and made of rubber, providing excellent grip for the icy mornings to come, and the outer is made with a touch of suede, but not too much, so you can still wear them in the rain.
