Fast forward to 2015. Rockports are still made in various outsource locations. However, they seem to have corrected the quality issues I noted before. Also, with Amazon's free return shipping policy, I am able to get around the inconsistent sizing issue, which still exists. That said, once I find a pair that fits, the new Lockport shoes are great for me.
These lace-up, waterproof cap-toes are the perfect shoe for me to wear to work in the 2016 "el Nino" rain in California. I was able to find a pair that fit me well with one cycle of return (the first pair was too big). They look good and have held up well in the use I've given them. I recommend these shoes if you need a bit of inclement weather support in your daily dress shoe. Make sure you look at the fit recommendations on Amazon and perhaps you can avoid the one fitting cycle I had. On sale, these were about $60, which is an outstanding shoe value. They are normally over $100 locally. Of course, even that is a bargain compared to my previous $275 Mephistos! In fact, a Mephisto re-sole is $140, so that is also more than a new pair of these.
I now have a small fleet of Rockports of various styles and recommend them highly. Just know that each style has its own sizing issues.
After 3 months - the replacement shoes I received have completely fallen apart - The sole in the right shoe just disintegrated. Having been a long time Rockport customer, I am disappointed that their standards have dropped so far. I will no longer purchase Rockport Shoes.
I had to return my first pair of these shoes because the left shoe made an embarrassing popping noise with each step I took. Amazon made that process easy and the replacements are perfect!
The replacements were wonderful - they look very dressy and are super comfortable. I wear them daily I will buy them again!
The shoes are comfortable enough for everyday wear, but I bought these because they were advertised as *waterproof*. Take your chances on something else!
