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.

Bought this after reading so many good reviews. My first Dunham.

Like
-well built and tough. Leather looks like it will outlast the sole
-firm wide sole but not too hard
-good insole
-wide sizes available
-multiple purpose shoe - can use for office, street, parks, grass, gravel

Don't like
-leather is very stiff, not like Clarks. But my feet feels well protected like a work boot.
-not suitable for formal/dress-up, but Ok for business casual - looks a little like a work boot
-leather has no shine (unlike the pic) - like a work boot again
-feels hot after a day's wear. Leather is not very breathable

If you're looking for a tough shoe with lots of wear for a casual or semi formal occasion, this may suit.
But leather is way too stiff for my liking - just reminds me of a work boot.
Sole is great for all types of ground.

My son bikes & walks several miles a day. He's worn them for 7 months, 12-14 hours a day and comments that they still look brand new. He can walk miles in the rain even thru muddy puddles but his feet and socks stay dry. Biking in the rain isn't a problem either. He has arthritis in his knees and these shoes, along with orthotics help him continue his responsibilities in comfort. They are built to last, light wieght,and stylish, yet give the full support that is necessary. I especially like the ease that Amazon offers helping me send supplies to my sons in different areas of the world at a competitive price.

There are lots of great reviews here already so have not much to add except to point out to the people who said the shoe gets hot, it is a waterproof shoe, remember!

I wear this shoe daily indoors in an office environment and also walking hills of northern California in all types of weather. It protects my feet nicely as a boot and looks like a nice shoe.

I purchased these shoes a couple of months ago. After a hassle with the delivery, the shoes going to someone with my name in New York, they finally arrived. They are very comfortable and light in weight. As a Diabetic that has had one leg amputated, I wanted a pair of shoes that would be easy on my foot, wide enough for my foot and be comfortable and light in weight. This pair of shoes fits the bill.

I am on my third pair of these shoes,and I am about to order another pair.they will not quit I still wear my original pair in the gerden after 5 years of thrashing. last year I spent 8 weeks walking in russia and the baltic states , I walked hundred of Ks and I took only one pair of shoes no back up. People did not beleave me . I have just spent a month in the Northern part of Australia rough and ruggared I only went in the Dunhams. They clean up and can be worn in a semi casual (like flying on the plane or going out to dinner) or harshest treatment sloshing in wet weather and mud the sole is amazing. Back in New Zealand these shoes are a god send . I don't wear running shoes any more. I brought a pair of the chuckas but they have a different sole it is much softer and does not wear as well . The 8000 are a little stiff to start but soon break in you can wear them through wet grass and water with out getting wet. being a little stiff gives good foot surport. Its a quality product like they used to make years ago you will not be sorry if you buy them . lastly I generaly do not do reviews , but feel I am forced to pass on this imformation to other users. I can not buy these shoes in NZ so get them through Amozon.. I have found that after a lot of wear they exhibit wear behind the heel area at the top by the archillies this could be years down the track I just put some adhesive tape there and that seemed to do the trick.Older shoes are relegated to painting or garden jobs . My 5 year olds are now fit for the bin. But seeing I am about to re order I will biff them. I should send them back to Dunhams research dept however I guess they have heaps of them.

I wear these shoes every day to work, and I am on my feet quite a lot. They give me great support and keep my feet feeling comfortable all day. This is my second pair and will continue buying them until they are discontinued.

My husband wears these shoes everyday to work ( on his feet alot ) and they last a very long time and are very comfortable. These shoes are the only ones he loves wearing and we always have a spare just in case.
