Top critical review
Decent quality so far, if they do squeak unexpectedly on occasion and look a bit like bowling shoes
on December 28, 2013
I would recommend that these shoes not be bought in brown; something about the color and texture makes them scream "synthetic" and look a bit like bowling shoes to me.
After wearing them for a couple of weeks, they haven't fallen apart at the seams as reported by at least one other reviewer. They are comfortable enough, though not amazingly so. The main problem I've noticed is that on a hard floor at work, they squeak unexpectedly; this of course has nothing to do with the faux leather.
My pair was a bit larger than expected.
Overall, in light of the difficulty in finding non-leather shoes which are business casual, I would try another pair of Soft Stags, though these don't blow me away.
