Thank you for your feedback.
The size was a perfect fit and he says they are very comfortable.
I am a bit worried how they will hold up to the wet northwest winters, though.
The shoe fits perfectly if I wear very thin ankle socks, or more typically, no socks.

Product Description

Ultra-light weight teams up with cozy style in the Patagonia Advocate Lace sneaker. Equipped with a stretchy bungee lace for easy entry, this men's slip-on casual shoe has a soft microfiber upper and is lined in plaid-print polyester. Partially recycled EVA provides comfort underfoot. The travel- and vegan-friendly Patagonia Advocate Lace shoe is finished with a flexible rubber outsole for grip, traction and protection. Through partnership with 1% For The Planet, Patagonia contributes one-percent of sales to environmental groups around the globe.

Patagonia's reason for being: Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire, and implement solutions to the environmental crisis. Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers, as a result Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothing and shoes for climbing--as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, paddling and trail running. In each of these sports, the reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between the athlete and nature. Patagonia's values reflect those of a business started by a band of climbers and surfers, and the minimalist style they promoted; the approach they take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility. At Patagonia, a love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to save them, and to help reverse the steep decline in the overall environmental health of the planet. Patagonia donates their time, services and at least 1% of sales to hundreds of grassroots environmental groups all over the world who work to help reverse the tide, and they work steadily to reduce any pollution and harms caused by their business activity. They use recycled polyester in many of their clothes and only organic, rather than pesticide-intensive, cotton. Staying true to their core values during thirty-plus years in business has helped create a company the employees are proud to run and work for, and their focus on making the best products possible has brought success in the marketplace.

    I bought this while looking for a pair of fashionable shoes that aren't sneakers. They are definitely an attractive pair of shoes. As another reviewer mentioned, though, they are more like slippers. I immediately returned the first pair I received due to sizing - these run about a size large. The next pair fit very well. They were comfortable as a minimalist slipper having literally no support at all - it's just a few millimeters of sole separating your foot from the pavement - just what I wanted. Sadly, they're are two major flaws. 1) they resemble a suede/microfiber material and do not breathe at all. In 75-80 degree weather, even without socks, they were unbearably warm. I suspect that in the cold, given how thin they are, they'd be unbearably cold. 2) For a walking shoe, they are not meant to be walked around in. After approx. 4 miles of walking, the liner peeled out and the sole looked significantly worn. I typically walk 4-5 miles a day on asphalt/concrete sidewalks and these are clearly not going to last more than a week. After a day walking around in them, I sent them back.

    If you're looking for an attractive indoor only slipper, these will fit the bill. If you're looking for an attractive outdoor walking shoe, find something else.

    I was thinking they would be more firm, but they actually feel more like slippers than shoes. I work all day at a desk, and am finding that I really appreciate that, my feet feel less sore and stressed at the end of the day.

    These are great looking shoes and probably the most comfortable shoes I've ever wore. I'm sure they will not hold up as good as a lot of other shoes but the comfortable bare foot feeling comes at the price of durability. These shoes seem to run a size or half size big. So if your a 10.5 order a 10.

    It's a nice and comfy slip-on. Calling it a walking shoe might be a stretch. Sure you can walk in it, but you can also walk barefoot or in moon boots. These are handy around the house or to change into after a hike for the drive home. I ordered a 10, usually wear 10.5, and they're plenty wide and maybe still slightly long.

    I have been looking for vegan and "barefoot" shoes that I can wear to work as casual shoes. These are perfect! I bought a pair in black and a pair in brown. I am a bit worried how they will hold up to the wet northwest winters, though.

    These shoes I'm wearing right now! They are very comfortable and look great. (when the insole is not up my heel)

    I should have bought these in size 9, though. (maybe?) The right shoe (and only the right shoe) loses the insole for some reason up behind the heel. Extremely, extremely annoying. It's sad because these shoes were pricey and I was looking forward to a good walking shoe. Will have to look elsewhere for comfortable and stylish walking shoes.

    I'm surprised at the cost based on how well they perform.The inner sole slips out immediately when walking. embarrassing trying to work and fixing your shoes every five minutes in front of customers. Try shaking hands after you sat there fixing the sole ... uhhh
    no thx

    Bought the brown pair for myself at REI on a whim and a pair here for my Dad a couple weeks later. He really liked his - I like them a lot, too. Simple, thin sole and a sort of stretchy, soft, paddy upper. The laces are just like Campers. These are basically just like my Camper Peu Cami slip ons, but for when I don't need leather or even canvas. Get a pair and try them out - for $75 not exactly a huge risk...
