Best pair of shoes I've ever owned.
on April 21, 2007
When I started a job in October of 2004 at a law firm, I had to get some dress shoes. I visited a Topps Shoestore and upon talking with the clerk, he recommended this pair of shoes. For a guy that had worn dress shoes maybe 10 other times in his life, this was a godsend. I tried them on and like the feel. That's the best part about them, they LOOK like dress shoes, but they FEEL like sneakers. So I bought them.
Best shoe decision I've ever made.
I have worn this pair of shoes, 95% of my work days, from October 2004 until today, April of 2007. Yes, I've over-worn them. Yes, I should have gotten another pair long ago. But you wouldn't believe this was a pair of shoes that has been worn for easily 500+ workdays. Sure, the insides are very degraded. But on the outside, they don't look older than 6 months. Usually, if I were to wear some other shoe for this long, the walls would be wearing out. I had a pair of Vans I loved so much that I couldn't bear to throw them out. Even after you could started to see my socks through the sides. But these shoes have held strong and yet maintain that wonderful lived-in feeling.
Anyway, this review has gone on a little long, but I came here to see if I could buy another pair and was stoked to find them. Once I saw they had NO reviews, I just had to comment.
Do yourself a favor. If you need a good LOOOONG-lasting pair of super comfortable "dress shoes that feel like sneakers", put your money down on these. Worth every penny.
