I had been looking at wingtips but wanted something that was comfortable too. When I first saw the name Rockport I was a little hesitant since, in my experience, their shoes typically favor comfort over style. I thought these had a really nice look to them though so I ordered them. I am wearing them right now and they really are the perfect combination of style and comfort. You can easily dress these up or wear them with jeans. I did make a minor change and put dark brown laces in them vs the ones that comes with them. You could also throw some red laces in there too that would look pretty sweet as well. The only thing I would note is that these are a hybrid between dressy and comfortable. The wingtip leather on the toe is hard (very nice), however the leather on the sides is soft, so you'll get some lines in the leather. It's not going to be strictly a hard dress shoe. It's almost like a buck/wingtip combo. Overall I had to give these 5 stars.
