This Rockport fan is very disappointed
on October 31, 2014
Really hate to write this review as I am a huge fan of Rockport, but this shoe is a huge step down in quality from what I am used to with Rockport. I love the comfort of Rockports, the fact that they are water-proof, and the high quality leather. Unfortunately, the leather for this shoe is stiff, not buttery soft like my other Rockports, making it far less comfortable. Also, the leather has a shiny finish, almost like patent leather. The leather is already very creased after wearing the shoe a half dozen times, much more so than other Rockports in the Men's Essentials line that I've had for a year. To make things worse, the finish seems to be chipping off, as if it was painted on, rather than dyed through the leather. Very disappointed.
