Best shoes I've ever bought
on February 14, 2014
I've had these shoes now for over 3 years. That is 3+ years of solid daily use, even hiking and trail walking at unexpected times through water, mud, sand etc. When I received these shoes several years ago, the style was a little different. The upper was solid leather (not perforated). The sole and the underside of the sole was all solid gum color. Not only are these shoes extremely comfortable right out of the box, they look great too for any formal or relaxed occasion. I can't tell you how many compliments I still get on these bad boys. Up until now, the leather has held up great no problem and the only repair work I've done has been the use of some shoe goo in some areas where the leather attaches to the sole, and on the underside where I've worn them through (gum soles tend to wear down quicker than other materials). I highly recommend these shoes as this review will never do them justice for all the good times and memories I've had wearing these. They've kept up with me and have been a huge part of my casual and traveling life style. These shoes are the s***, hands down. I really hate when a company changes an already great thing, but I will be ordering another pair, and really hope that the changes in construction haven't compromised this down-right epic shoe.
