Excellent & unique, use alternative days as J&M Shuler Moc Venetian
on June 16, 2013
I really love this shoe, the Golson Slip-On (GSO), and I use it on alternative days from my other black pair of J&M Shuler Moc Venetian (SMV).
These shoes have a really nice look, and I like the unique design (see picture). It has almost a casual side-wingtip - that's the only way I can think to describe.
The GSO tumbled leather is a little less pronounced (lighter tumbling) than the Shuler (SMV). The GSO foot opening is also smaller and tighter than the SMV, partially due to the fact that the quarter-rise behind the heel (where you'd use a shoe horn) is higher than usual too which adds some difficulty to slipping this shoe on, but it does not bother me. For some though, I suspect it could be a bother and possibly even rub or aggravate the Achilles or back of ankle area. Since I've found the SMV to run about even with most other J&M shoes, I recommend buying this GSO a 1/2 size larger than your other J&M shoes. You may even want to try these on in-store just to be safe.
I would say that I prefer the Shuler to the Golson, but I've been very pleased with these Golson's as an alternative shoe to wear every other day.
