Ignore the other guy, the shoes are what I expected
on February 14, 2013
I will say that the sizing is slightly tight. Meaning you will wear these with dress socks and likely need to use a shoe horn to easily get into them. They are brand new, I got them with that gold box deal a couple of days ago so they need to break in, but I can tell that they will fit fine. Looks? Well you can see in the pictures, the shoe is just as the pictures show.
I gave it 4 of 5 because the fit is close and likely I will use a shoe horn. I also would have at times liked to use other than dress socks and that would be impossible with these.
As for the whole made in the USA thing, I leave that to others. I thought people would like to know what the shoes themselves were like. I have always loved rockport shoes, I use them with my suits, the more formal ones that look like Johnston & Murphy shoes, and was looking for a more casual pair to wear. These fit the bill and arrive just in time for a valentine's dinner with the girlfriend.
EDIT: After an hour of wearing them they are very comfortable. I would give them more like a 4.5. Like I said a shoe horn would make getting these on easier, but I suppose any looser and they would not fit right. Good shoes and what I expected given I like rockport shoes.
Update: Been wearing them over a month now. Great, great comfortable pair of shoes. I highly recommend.
