These shoes are great. This is my third pair and will order and wear this style until they stop production. I hope they will be around far as many years as I live. I wish they would sell insole replacements.
I have worn CH Tucker Venetians for few years replacing them as the sole wears down, which they do a little faster than other shoes. They are great comfortable slip-on shoes once worn in. However, the recent pairs that I received from Amazon both had lumpy inner soles. The feeling I get is that 85 dollar pair are slightly defective and not as high quality. Perhaps this is why they are cheaper here. However, amazon customer service was superb in this regard, and took the shoes back for a full refund, so it pays to give them a try.
