I bought these at the Sketchers outlet so I know they were the actual brand. I really wanted a pair of Toms but just couldn't drop the money on them at the time. The outlet does a buy one get one half off, so I picked these up when I bought a pair of shoes for my husband.
Luckily I was AT a store where I could try them on. Otherwise I would've been disappointed with the sizing. I'm a solid 10 in practically every shoe and I had to go down a full size. Because I had to go with the smaller size the arch doesn't hit in the right place. At the time I was working retail on cement floors all day and there isn't a lot of support in the sole. Once I bought a pair of inserts all was well. Considering I paid less than $20 for these I'm okay with them. But if I'd paid full price I probably would've been disappointed.
I just love these shoes. This is the second pair I've purchased of these Bob's. They are my winter go to shoe. So much so that I had to replace my original pair. They fit true to size ( I wear a 10). The boiled wool material stands up to harsh weather quite well. I always wear them when I travel because they are great for traveling in airports. I highly recommend!
These shoes are fashionable but not the BEST shoes to walk in. There is no cushion or arch and I do not wear them except as a slipper around the house. Buy Sketchers GO WALK instead, they are a much better shoe and OH SO VERY COMFORTABLE . . . like walking on AIR ! ! !
I really like these shoes. They fit true to size and are very comfortable. I can wear them with or without sox. At first they felt a bit snug with socks but they stretched just enough to fit perfectly now. I would not consider them 'cute' or dress up/go out shoes but that's not what they are intended for. I wear them to work and I love how comfortable they are.
