Just received the new Rockport Washington Sq Gore. While I returned the Wispen Shoe I have to say Rockport has been reducing the quality of their shoes. I always wore the Moc Slip on and it was well made, soft leather and felt like a quality shoe should. This shoe is light weight, much harder leather, the inside fit is not comfortable but 3XW is good. The padding on the top of the ankle peice has been replaced with a strip of hard leather that irritates the back of the ankle after long wear. The soul appears to be more plastic and is very slippery to walk on smooth surfaces. Not sure why Rockport is going cheap men that wear Rockport have never been about price it's been the product, they seem to be making to many similar styles and lost the basics. If Rockport continues in this direction this customer will be looking for a new manufacturer after 26 years of buying Rockport. I would say buy with caution.
