amazon has always been a trusted site me, for my online purchases - which I make more and more of as my years tick away.
These shoes however are giving me a different perspective. These shoes don't even come close to authentic Florsheim Riva's. The leather feels cheap and "thin". I immediately went "what?" when I first put them on.
I think they have gotten their hands on a shipment of cheap Chinese replicates. I honestly do.
I picked up a couple of other pairs from my closet (like I said, been wearing them a long time, I have 3 or 4 old pair in the closet), and this pair is nothing like any of the others (which are all exactly the same quality)
For those of you who think you like your purchase, I ask you to go into a local "real" shoe store and compare what you have bought to what they have in stock, and see if you got the same thing I did. I certainly hope not.
Shame on you amazon for reselling this cheap imitation crap.
The shoes are the ULTIMATE IN COMFORT! The uppers are of glove-soft kidskin and the soles of a firmly cushioned synthetic material. They are suitable for everyday office wear as well as for use on formal occasions.
The factory finish is as durable as a patent leather, without the extremely high gloss plastic look.
They are extremely durable, as some of them lasted me for more than twelve years of frequent wear. I've never been able to wear out the one piece Comfortech sole and heel. Ultimately, the uppers will wear through on the flex creases or at the base, where the upper is joined to the sole. You can easily extend the wear period to ten years or more by occasional use of a good polish, especially after the shoes have been exposed to a wet environment.
They are an excellent buy at the suggested retail price of $100 to $110 that you see most often, but are an unbelievable bargain at the $90/pair charged by Amazon.
If I had a suggestion for minor improvement for Florsheim, it would be to make the sole slightly thicker and the heel slightly wider for greater stability.
I personally, would rate these shoes at six stars on a scale that had five stars for the next best shoe. I would never go back to wearing dress shoes of conventional stiff leather and hard soles and heels.
These shoes are not perfect, but Florsheim has come VERY close with the Riva.
Give them a try -- I think you will come to love them as I do!
Then, in recent years, when walking long streets, be it New York, or Hong Kong, I would complain about my feet doing all that walking. Maybe age? I am sure that plays a factor. Then I read how wearing a comfortable (NOT fashionable or expensive) shoe helps your feet, your posture and your health.
So I started to look for COMFORTABLE shoes. Having been by many shoe places, I walked into a Florsheim store
(I had owned a few Florsheims before, they were OK, nothing great) and asked for their MOST comfortable shoe.
They introduced me to their COMFORTECH line and I chose the RIVA style. It was an EXPERIENCE. I felt lighter
and extremely comfortable. I quickly bought the pair. I discovered that I could walk for many blocks and do this many days on my trips, whether for business or for pleasure - WITHOUT any pain nor discomfort. An added (BIG)bonus: When your shoes hurt, you tend to stoop. (Check that out!) With my RIVAs on, I walk straight and briskly, with a spring on my feet. Seriously. I have not felt this level of passion for any OTHER product - EVER.
So these are the shoes I wear everyday.... I am exploring other models within the COMFORTECH series. But the RIVAs are my FAVORITE. And by the way... I gave away all my other shoes. REALLY.
Don't accept everything I've said here blindly. Go out and try a pair of the Comfortech Series. YOU WILL SEE.
Then.... no need to thank me.... just keep spreading "the word". WORD. Pamper your feet... buy a RIVA :)
These shoes that I bought in May 2014 are crap. Wore them twice. Tops are pulling away from the soles. Left heal wore out.
Sending them back.
These are the softest most comfortable shoes I have ever worn other than sneakers, and at age 77 I've owned a lot of shoes.
The uppers are soft as butter and the soles are very flexible. The only downside...the soles will dry out and crack after 4-6 years.
