Dockers needs to strengthen the soles.
5/2/16 update/correction: Upon reading comments on my review, and re-evaluating, I estimate that the soles of these shoes begin to show significant wear in one to two months (instead of two weeks) with frequent use on hard surfaces.
I got a second pair intending to replace the old ones, but ended up sticking them in the closet for now. The old pair still feels and looks great so I will continue wearing them until they wear out. If they can wear out. These shoes are tough.
I will NOT be buying Dockers again when I have to replace these, or ever again, for that matter. My shoes before this pair lasted me two years. This is unacceptable, Dockers! Customers expect much better quality for the higher price associate with your brand name.
The rubber soles wear well, though I've been using taps to extend their life. Initially the leather uppers looked good, but with time they have become less attractive (I've had the shoes for a year). High-quality leather uppers improve with age and generally develop fine, delicate creases with use. These leather uppers, on the other hand, have developed coarse, unsightly creases; they look like crinkled vinyl. For the record, I use shoe trees in these shoes. On the plus side, the shoes are adept at repelling water. When wet, the leather appears rough, but once dry it turns back to normal.
In short, these are fine for occasional use or for a brisk walk in the rain. They'll serve you well for a while, but don't expect too much.
As an additional note the Amazon size chart is useless from a buyers perspective. The sizing is off quite a bit. According to my measurements I'd need a size 10 shoe (I've never worn anything longer than a 9.5 in any shoe size). This sizing may be done to ensure that the shoe is not too short, as you may be more willing to return shoes that are too short rather than too long.

The shoes are a lighter brown than expected, but overall I am happy with the size and fit of the shoes which is most important as the color will change over time anyway. Read morePublished 9 days ago by fwallacec3
It is a great shoe, except for durability. The sole of the shoe is wearing out already, and I have only owned this shoe for about 4 weeks. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Jay
