More sneaker than boot
on April 24, 2014
I ordered black in size US 12. I read in other reviews that buying a size down from what you usually wear is the way to go with these shoes, and it turned out that way for me too. I gave the fit "somewhat large" for that reason, as I usually wear a 13 and a 12 was perfect.
The upper is a nice thickness (very much between a sneaker and a boot) and is supportive. It is also suede, where as the description just says leather. The suede made them look a lot nicer than I was expecting, which I guess is why they're sometimes sold as a "fashion sneaker." Not sure if the other colors are the same way. The sole is thin like you'd expect from a sneaker.
One downside is that the pair of metal lace hooks is right before the last set of lace holes, which together hold the laces very tight. You have to really pull the shoe open to get it on and off. Might be something that loosens up as they are broken in.
Overall a great multi-use shoe!
