However, I should have listened to the other comments. After walking around my house in these shoes for a few minutes, it became clear that I couldn't wear them. The portion of the shoe that rises up from the heel (which is made of rubber) rubs directly on my achilles tendon. At first it seems like it might just be a minor annoyance that will go away, but after a few more minutes, it became clear that my tendon area was getting red and chafed. While another commenter said that this might go away after the shoe breaks in, I can't walk around with sore ankles waiting for that to happen. Though I liked everything else about the shoe, I had to return it.
I will be returning these shoes due to the rubber tab on the heel of the shoes, this tab rubs very hard against the tendon, to the point of wearing away your sock and your skin. I wore them in the house for a few days with no sign of improvement, even tried stretching the rubber, but it keeps returning to the original form.
Would be an good shoe if it was not for this rubber part of the shoe.
Gave it one star, as shoes are meant to protect your feet, not damage them.
Although I no longer feel the pain of the rubber rubbing against my Achilles tendon area, I noticed it still turns the skin red. I didn't even notice for a couple months after breaking them in, but then I saw they were still rubbing my skin raw. The nerves must have just been destroyed. Lowered the rating to 3/5. Hope Rockport does improve this design because the rest of the shoe is great.
After breaking these shoes in, I have grown to love them.
My job consist of various types of movement and non-movement activities. My daily routine consist of large amounts of the following, which would be sitting, standing, walking, running, and jumping. These are non-exercise based and are required for my job. I'm tall with large feet, and large arches, so finding shoes to meet my requirements has been a challenge over the years. I have mostly worn Adidas sambas because any other shoes I've tried were either painfully uncomfortable, or wore out way to quick. But as time went on I realized that I needed more business casual shoes for work, and unfortunately the sambas just didn't look the part. After years of trying different shoes, from dockers, to red-wings, I finally found Rockports.
I gave these shoes a 5/5 because they a super lite, made of nice material, and after breaking them in they are very comfortable. The material used is strong, but thin and borderline weightless. The leather material is superb, it feels smooth, not grainy like some cheaper leather shoes. The soles are great, providing great traction and they appear that they will last over time. The inner part of the shoe is extremely comfortable as well.Read more ›
Pros: Lightweight and comfortable
Cons: The leather is very low quality and scuffs very easily! Also, due to the design of the outsole (to make the shoe lighter) it tears away under normal use.
For the money I spent on these shoes I am very disappointed. These are the second pair of Rockports for me. The first pair were my favorite shoe for years and withheld a lot of tough usage. However, these shoes definitely do not live up to my expectations.
The fit on these is a bit tight and snug, I would go up at least 1/2 a size and wider from your other Rockport shoes. If you can endure the pain of breaking them and your feet in, these are a great addition to any wardrobe.
