They look sharp, but aren't as comfortable as I would expect
on July 11, 2012
I am a light-blue collar worker - middle management at a plant! I need to be able to work on the floor but look professional, so I bought these shoes. They go on easy, look good, and it's hard to tell they are steel toed.
1) The grip isn't very anti-slip, it's not bad, but tennis shoes are better.
2) To get the shoe to look good the toe width isn't as large as I would like. My left foot is ~1/2 size bigger than my right, I could have used a 1/4 shoe size bigger so my left pinky wasn't as crammed. If I went to the next size up, my right foot would have slipped out of the shoe too easily and I wanted slip ons!
3) My biggest complaint and the most important for some - the cushion is FIXED! You can not remove them, so you can not put in any inserts - for me, my arch supports need to have the inserts removed, if you don't, the height of the shoe isn't enough to fit your feet, plus it would similar to walking on platform shoes.
Almost a perfect match between form and function though. Good try!
