Comfort out of the box
on May 10, 2010
Shoes are a gamble even being able to try them on. The good selection of sizes encouraged me to try ordering these, and it ended up being a solid choice. I normally wear a 1/2-size smaller, but did not want to end up with a too small shoe. They are slightly big, but with a running sock instead of a dress sock they are fine.
Travelling overseas I wore these on the trip there, extra convenience at security since they slip on and off. The first day they were on my feet 16 hours straight including jaunts around a mine. They were so comfortable I almost forgot I had new shoes on were it not for their standout appearance (no scuffs etc.). They are also not too bulky as safety shoes go, so I can still fit them in my small carryon suitcase. They also serve sytlishly as a business-casual shoe, and it'd be hard to tell they are actually safety shoes.
The only drawback: a little hard to get on and off for a slip-on, but this is easing with use and will probably cease to be an issue at all.
