Also...I did ballet for 10 years, and no serious ballerina cares more about looks than function. In ballet you buy a pair of expensive new toe shoes...and then you proceed to beat the hell out of them, burn them, rip them just to make them more functional on your feet. So you should not compare things you know nothing about.
I agree, I would like them to look good for awhile if possible. Helps on resale value. I don't have many days on my Capos yet, but I have hit a few trees, rocks, ate shit a few times, they look flawless. In fact I still haven't torn the toe webbing.
