I have worn these shoes for just over 2 months now. They are broken in very well and are quite comfortable. HOWEVER, if I were able to show an image, you would see two parallel lines across the top of the shoe that appear to be discolored. These are the areas of the shoe that creased as I walk and the shoe bends. This area is an area of very small cracks and they won't go away. I have tried to clean them over and over but they won't. In my opinion, this is a major flaw. I will be contacting the manufacture to find out what recourse I may have.

A coworker has a pair of shoes similar to these but of a different brand. His shoes are older and they do not have this issue. I will be discarding my shoes and purchasing that brand. The brand starts with the letter B and ends in ates.

Old Review when I just got them...

These shoes were purchased to wear at work with a uniform. I have owned other brands but never Rocky high gloss shoes. I have had Rocky boots for years and have always been pleased. These shoes have a slightly thicker sole than other brands so I thought I'd try them out.

They looked great right out of the box. They didn't fit too first. The thing to remember about these types of shoes is they have a breaking in period. After about a week or so of wearing them 8 to 10 hours a day, they loosened up enough to hold the title of comfortable shoes.

Don't expect these shoes to fit well right out of the box because you will be disappointed. As previously stated, they are just fine now. The first day or so, my dogs were barkin'. I waited to write this review until I'd had them a while. As of this writing, with the shoes on my feet, I am happy with them.

One of the best things about these shoes is they always look nice. If they get a little dusty, just wipe them off. If they get splattered with something, a paper towel and a light misting of glass cleaner and they are like new again. With the position I hold, I need to look professional and these, now comfortable shoes, allow me to do that.

The only other complaint is the shoe laces don't stay tied well. IF I could find a pair of laces an inch longer, I could tie them with a double knot and have no worries...until I had to bend over and untie them.

I would recommend these shoes to anyone who wears a uniform and needs to look sharp. Military, Police, whoever. If I have a formal event, I might towel them off and wear them with a tux.

I am a big guy - 6'6" and 285lbs. I purchased these shoes to go with my tuxes inasmuch as anything else I found was often lacking entirely in comfort and support. These shoes have both in spades. Even after hours on my feet at black/white tie events, there isn't any aching in my feet, knees, or back. The soles are soft, quiet, non-marking and non-slip, and the insoles provide substantial support and comfort. The exterior sheen is tough and, even though they are a couple years old at this point, the pair I purchased is showing negligible - if any - wear.

Bottom line - a great product and worth the price!

I purchased these for my son a few years ago for JROTC. They were affordable and of good quality. My son graduated last year and no longer uses these shoes, but they are still in great shape. I highly recommend them to anyone thinking of making the purchase.

Buyers beware. It may have been a once in a lifetime thing but, when I ordered these shoes, they were not the right size. They were marked as a 7 but were not. These shoes look really good and I have worn the Rocky brand for a while but they are super heavy! I also ordered the magnum shoes that look just like these and they are a light as your socks.

It seemed strong so I thought it will be a good idea to try these shoes, but It lasted only 4 (four) months due rips on both shoes. I got a BATES that lasted almost 2 years, so I bought another Bates that I have been using the last 10 months.

However "I" thought the shoes would be heavier. Leather soles and heels. Rubber is quiet; but can not take a beating when worn everyday. "Hard "leather-ed soles, and heels" are preferred. Please remember that for me. Thank you.

First, these shoes were not purchased from or thru Amazon. My Dept. bought this exact shoe for me and over paid big time. Cheap Chinese junk!! They literally cracked and split apart in 4.5 months. After 31 years of wearing high gloss duty shoes, these were by far the worst and most cheaply made.

This was one of the worst purchases I have ever made, they look like a pair rough brograns, I would not recomend these shoes to anyone to use for anything. I returned them as soon as I open the box.

I bought these to replace my Oxford high gloss shoes. One the first day the front soles started to come up. The second day the inside padding started coming up. The soles are getting worst everyday. The shoes are not comfortable at all to wear.

When I started breaking them in, the finish in the crease showed an unprofessional obvious difference in the finish. Not happy. Didn't even have them 6 months and there's a crack in them. Must be knock offs.
