Pros: Comfortable and Good-looking. Cons: Wears out in less than a year, Incredibly squeaky!
on March 15, 2014
I've been a huge fan of Rockport shoes for over 10 years now, having bought their Business-lite, Wispen, Apenglow, and other slip-ons and lace-ups for business and casual wear. They always fit well and are great-looking. However, a few of them are terribly squeaky on a lot of surfaces that aren't carpet. This one didn't squeak immediately, but as it wore in over the first few months, it began to squeak. I ordered this item in June of 2013, and it is now March 2014, and I need to replace them due to complete wearing out of the treads, and worn out uppers.
I did use them heavily, though, almost daily, for all occasions, as they look fantastic both with a suit or with jeans. These shoes were always comfortable and great-looking, but sometimes embaressing when I would squeak my way down a hallway! Because of the squeak, I am going with another shoe to replace these this time. If not for the squeak, They'd easily be a 4/5 stars or higher.
