For the price, great shoes!
on August 19, 2015
Shoes came on time like usual. I was looking for a pair of reddish brown leather shoes to go with both casual-dress pants and dark jeans. I ordered the 'Cognac' color. As all the other reviews stated, they are slightly too large especially when wearing thin dress socks. Order a half size down (width is great and will still be wide enough with the half size smaller). The color came exactly as pictured. Another review (2-star rating) mentioned how the leather came distressed and had "wrinkles" in them. Mine had this as well but I almost prefer this as these are going to be worn more with chinos and dark jeans than as actual dress shoes. I also prefer this look as it gives it personality. Take this with a grain of salt as they will not be perfectly clean as the picture shows.
The pattern on the bottom of the shoe grips VERY well. Don't be afraid to wear these when there is ice or other potential slipping hazards on the ground. Shoes are quite comfortable as well. The padding at the sole makes it easy to stand for hours at a time and not have pain. Toes aren't cramped at all (could be because of the slightly larger fit).
With the price I got these for - $46 - these are a steal. I haven't run in to any problems with the top leather and darker bottom plastic portions coming apart but with a dab of superglue, it should be an easy fix. 5/5 for price, unique style, comfortability, and compliments received. Could be a 3 or 4 star rating if you want that pristine, non-wrinkly leather look for suits or slacks.
