I purchased three pairs, one black, one brown and one burgundy. The shoe fits great and is very comfortable, I give it that. But all had the same problems eventually:

1) The tassles fell off, or at least one of the pair will fall off. This means that either you glue the tassle back on somehow or cut the other ones off. One of the tassles popped off when I was having the shoe shined. This happened on all three pairs. The tassle simply fell off. So one shoe has two, the mate has no tassles. If you happen to lose the tassle then it looks ridiculous.
2) The leather appears very thin and flimsy and it tears easily, scuffs easily. When this happens you have a shoe that looks like it is falling apart, looks cheap. You can cut off the peeled leather then polish it, but then it doesn't polish well. This happens under normal wearing conditions. I am very careful with my shoes so I was a little surprised at this. My other shoes don't have this problem at all.
3) The seams appear to be of poor quality. I noticed that some of the seams separate where laced/stitched. There is fraying in places.
4) The soles are thin and wear through easily. I have worn through one pair so they will need to be re-soled. I am not going to bother though. If you step in water after you've worn these a few months your socks will get wet. Another reviewer noticed this.
5) The heels also are not the highest quality, they wear out too easily.

All in all, not a good shoe for the price. I am disappointed. And it's a shame, I have always owned Florsheim shoes and have always associated them with high quality and high price, but at least the price was worth it in the past. I don't mind paying up for a decent pair of shoes. These shoes look absolutely wonderful when you get them. They are very comfortable. And no, I do not play football in them. I strictly wear them to work and to church. I think someone somewhere skimped on material quality and workmanship quality.

I've had this pair of shoes for a few months now. They are nice looking and take polish well for a good shine. However, the pair I received had some loose threads from the top stitching sticking out which required me to trim them back flush. The stitching for the top section also seems to be a bit looser than I would have expected. When wearing them you can see a gap between the top and side section. Might only be 1/16th of an inch but that could have been prevented with a little tighter stitch.

Also, the leather sole seems to be a bit thinner than most other leather sole shoes making the feel on the bottom of my foot more of a moccasin feel rather than a fine dress shoe. The sole also does not seem to have been treated to resist water at all. When stepping in any shallow standing water I can feel the cold dampness on the bottom of my foot. Might also be a partial result of the sole thickness or the quality/treatment of the leather.

I like the look and comfort of the shoes but I'd be reluctant to purchase this same pair again and may have to think twice about buying a pair from Florsheim in general out of concern for overall quality across all of their products.

My father always wore florsheim shoes as they had the respect of quality made shoes. Now like father like son I've found that for the price you cannot find a Better value in an all leather shoe. Like any all leather shoe they should be on the tight side new as they will adjust to your feet like a custom made shoe.This shoe was too large in my regular size and I had to downsize.. They were a little snug at first but fit like gloves now. These are all purpose shoes and will accent any style in color.For less than 300.00 these are the best fitting shoes one can find.

While the size 11 was way too tight, the 11-1/2 was to big. A beautiful shoe otherwise. Regretted having to return both pair.

First Impressions: they look great, but the soles appear to be some type of rubber - it's def something other than leather. I was looking forward to owning a nice pair of leather sole shoes, just like it's advertised and shown on the pictures.
It really wouldn't matter much if I was buying the shoes for dressing up only, but I will be using the shoes at dance clubs as well and leather soles are a must for any type of formal dancing.

Update 11/13/2013.
Florsheim's website states the shoe to be a Durable Non-Leather sole. If you are looking for a shoe for rainy days and you want to keep your good leather shoes at home, then this is the perfect shoe.

Upper: Genuine Nappa leather with croc print
Lining: Leather
Insole: Fully cushioned non-removable footbed
Sole: Durable non- leather

The color is great for brown or tan suits. When the shoe arrived it was a tad tight, but a day with the shoe tree took care of that. I have an wide bridge and this fit just fine. The texture of the leather is very elegant.

Like most Florsheims, these are extremely comfortable after stretching. Break in is minimal. The upper is soft leather all around. The sole is good leather and perfectly flexible out of the box. This shoe has no heel pinch for me. Some shoes don't quite come up high enough in back and pinch me, but not this one.

A great investment if you want to look good.

I requested (and received) a pair of these last Christmas in the "Cognac" color. Wow. I found them to be so comfy that I went out and bought another pair for myself in black!

I especially like to wear slip-on shoes when flying ... easy to get them off and on quickly when going through security; and then, after we're airborne I can slip them off my feet and put them back on before landing without having to reach down or lean forward! Makes for a more relaxing flight.

The 'gator' finish is a nice distinction, too. Highly recommended. VERY comfy.

I have purchased these shoes, the same pair for two years now. Excllent look, great quality, and comfortable. I work at a huge bank, and the shoe is great for the business... banking environment. For LONG HOURS, if it's late you can kick'em off then get them back on quickly. Recommend you get it shoe shined be a profesisonal at least once a month to make 'em last. Worth it! Will streatch out just a hair. Great price on Amazon.

This is the second pair of shoes (same style) I purchased for my husband. He claims they are comfortable, look nice, true size fit. Only down side is on his first pair he wore a hole in the sole in less than a year and he wears a variety of different dress shoes so we thought they should have lasted a bit longer than this. Hopefully second pair will hold out a bit longer!
