Better than others...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dickies Men's Venue II Work Shoe (Apparel)
These shoes are nicer than the other brand of work shoes that I bought (I can't remember which brand it was). I'm confident that the leather will hold up at least as long as Nike brand shoes. The one downside that I can mention so far is the weight of these shoes. But that's the trade-off for more durability. Also, I guess the sole could be a bit more cushioning. About five to six hours into a shift my feet start to tire and hurt a little. It's not such a big thing especially since that could be because the shoes are a bit big for me, which leads me to my last point. I use Nike as a reference for all shoe sizes and these shoes run about a half a size larger than US Nike. I bought US 8.5's and the sizes under the tongue are as follows: US/CAD 8.5, EURO 42.5, UK 8.5. It does not list the size in centimeters, which I believe would be by far the most accurate measurement across brands. These shoes say both "slip resistant" and "oil resistant".
