May be the most comfortable shoe you will ever own other than those for the bedroom.
on August 26, 2014
I have bought this exact style/model shoe twice before. It is one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn and they also come in two other colors. One is brown and black (which I own) and the other is all brown. The all black goes well with casual wear up to and including suits. My only complaint is the non-slip insert they embed in the leather portion of the sole (the heel is synthetic rubber). As others have said, after several months wear and exposure to wet payment, it will start to come loose from the leather. As usually, at that point I may re-attach temporarily with "Goop" shoe repair and eventually have them resoled with an all leather half-sole. This typically costs around $40 and will more that double the life of the shoe. By the way, if you are someone who had a tendency to allow your shoes to occasionally rub against each other (particularly as you walk) you may cause the very soft leather to become scuffed (not typical of harder finished leather). To help avoid this, some mink oil applied when they are new and then occasionally re-applied will reduce this issue.
