I Like Them
on October 27, 2015
I had a pair of Bostonian shoes before these Rockports. I was disappointed with their durability. The leather uppers cracked and the heels wore more quickly than I would have liked. Admittedly, I expect to get well over five years out of a pair of shoes.
Other Rockport shoes I have owned have been very durable and these had good reviews, so I thought I would give them a try. I can not address the arch support for these shoes. Since I wear orthotics, I immediately removed the insole and replaced it with my orthotics, which fit perfectly. It took approximately one week before the shoes broke in and felt like they fit me perfectly. I wear them five days a week to work, where I walk or stand about half the day.
These shoes initially appear to be much better made than the Bostonians they replaced. However, only time will tell if that proves true. My wife is not at all impressed with the style, although I like what I consider to be its functional good looks. I have rated them four stars because I don't yet know how they will hold up over time. If I remember I will update my review in five years. :0)
