In 1892, Milton Florsheim began producing shoes in a small factory located in Chicago, Illinois. The first pairs of Florsheim shoes made by Milton and his father, Sigmund, were a remarkable combination of style, comfort and high quality workmanship. This tradition continues today with the Florsheim family's commitment to producing trend-right, high quality footwear. Florsheim shoes are always available in a wide range of sizes and widths.

Now on to the shoes. I am a bit of a shoe snob, and have multiple pairs of Allen Edmonds, Ace Marks, and Thursday boots, among others. Over the years, the reputation Florsheim previously established as purveyors of quality men's dress shoes, built for life, has waned. However, their styling has remained timeless, for the most part, in an era when many shoe manufacturers are trying anything to move product (I'm looking at you, Allen Edmonds).
When I found these monk straps, I was relieved to finally find something in a 3E width that still had a stylish last and overall profile. The price was reasonable for what the product appeared to be, though I didn't expect Horween leather (spoiler alert: the leather is very meh). But I figured what the heck, at less than half the price of Allen Edmonds, I'll try a pair of shoes in a slip on style that is sometimes difficult to find a proper fit in, and if it doesn't work out, I can return them through Amazon.
The shoes arrived and I was pleasantly surprised. Granted, like I previously stated, these are not Aldens, Allen Edmonds, Loakes, or anything of the sort. But the price isn't either. Their styling is fashion forward enough that they make a statement, but not so haughty that they'll make a scene. And the overall quality is well worth what you'd expect at this price point.
I was also extremely satisfied with the fit and comfort, right out of the box. They fit very well, with no heel slippage, with a generous amount of room in the toe box,even for my extra wide clod hoppers.
I have only worn them around the house for a bit, but I can already tell that the leather, while once again not anything high end, is not even creasing to the level of my Ace Marks, which I paid twice the price of these for.
Overall, extremely satisfied, both with the product and the seller.
As for looks, I think these are sharp looking. I like the smooth minimalist styling. The buckles become the focus and the overall shape is sleek without having a ridiculously pointed toe. The cap toe adds a bit of a formal look. It's completely subjective but I like something unadorned like this better than a wingtip look.
Color.....The black is well, black and the soles are made to look like leather. The brown is a dark brown. Not quite as dark as the photos on Amazon would indicate but very definitely a brown. Not light brown, not tan, not super dark. Just a solid brown color.
At this price, I can't really see why people are complaining about quality. Personally I can't justify spending $400 on what would be essentially a shoe with the same styling from another manufacturer or $190 for the same shoe from Florscheim with a leather sole. Since I have maybe 10 pairs of shoes in my closet and I rotate them every day, my shoes tend to last me several years. These monk strap shoes will fit into that rotation just fine while keeping about $600 in my pocket. I'm betting no one standing 5 feet away will ever tell these aren't the expensive brand. And if they do, I don't really care.
- The sole is shiny on the top. It made me feel like I had a tuxedo rental shoe from when i was a kid.
- The buckle strap holes were not all punched through. I had to punch them through with the buckle. This gave me a negative impression overall.
Also, I got quite a few comments on them their first day out, which is why I picked them up, so I can't complain. Next time I'll go down half a size, though.
