these shoes are alot like converse high tops, but made with much thicker and tougher canvas. i mean.. like military grade canvas. and its not like its made out of multiple layers of thin material like converse. these shoes are tough! the rubber is one solid piece too. converse has multiple pieces of rubber glued together- not these! it seems like every detail of these shoes were carefully thought out and made with high quality. even the shoelaces are perfect! they are flat which i love. they also have amazing grip, which is also pretty unique because the tread is widely spaced which keeps them nice and lightweight while actually providing better tread. ive had these for a couple months or so now, and i dont expect them to come apart soon. ive been abusing them. ive used them every time i ride my harley, and they get dragged alot. these shoes can be used as work boots (unless you need the steel toe) motorcycle boots, hiking boots, or even just every day shoes. theyre so comfortable, im actually still wearing them in the house right now. the only problem i encountered was that they took a week of wearing them daily to finally break them in enough to be comfortable. converse high tops need breaking in too, but not as much as these do. which makes sense, because they are made of much thicker canvas. but fast forward to now, and they are extremely comfortable and thoroughly broken in. i ordered a size 9 which is my size for converse high tops, and at first these felt so tight, i was ready to return them. i am SO GLAD i didnt because they just needed to be broken in. so if you think they are too tight GIVE THEM A CHANCE because trust me they need some breaking in and it will be worth it. in the end they are sized the same as converse high tops. they are not exactly waterproof, duh, its canvas. but surprisingly enough i havent felt my feet get wet from walking in the rain. i also did eventually spray it with waterproofing spray. all in all, ive never been happier over a shoe purchase.
-very tough, high quality build
-comfortable, practical, lightweight
-versatility. can be used for work, motorcycle, hiking, ect
-better arch support than converse high tops
-no steel/carbon fiber toe
-needs breaking in
-waterproofing spray needed
As for build quality, they seem durable, the canvas has a nice thickness to it and it has double stitching all around. The insoles look a bit sketchy, but it's easy enough to remove them and replace with the insoles of your choice.
The one downside is they are a bit slippery on wet floors, I don't know if this is because the soles are still brand new, I'll have to see if wet traction improves after they have been broken in a bit.
Update 6/24/17. After three weeks of ownership I replaced the crappy insoles with a nice pair of gel ones, and they have gone from very comfortable to downright heavenly. One slightly annoying thing is the spaces between the lugs in the heel are the perfect size for trapping small rocks, twigs, etc., so expect to pick up a few if you walk over any areas with gravel or mulch.
I've have them (at the time of this review) for about 2 months or so, and they have broken in great. They conform to my feet, provide a good amount of support where I need it, and feel comfortable enough to use all day. Similar boots i've used usually show evidence of cracking and abnormal wear within a short amount of time, but these boots haven't done that yet. I work both in a sales showroom, and shop. They have held up great. Traction is a bit questionable in ice, but siping helps with that.
Winter use will require some comfy boot socks to stay somewhat warm, as the material isn't real thick. I've managed to make them water-resistance by means of beeswax and a heat gun. If you dunk your boots, you'll still get wet, but by doing the beeswax method, walking in the snow will help keep your feet dry.
