Pretty Damn Good Shoe!!
on February 16, 2012
I'm 64 and due to an injury prone left knee, I only walk briskly these days instead of running. But I cover about 4 miles four to five days a week. In addition, I weight train for about 45-60min each of those days. These shoes replaced a set of New Balance I just loved. I've been wearing them for about three weeks and have no complaints except for the shoe strings. Seems like they could be a tad longer (maybe 2") and a little more heavy duty. But unlike the New Balance strings, these do not require a double knot to keep from coming untied mid-walk. It's a good thing because they are not long enough for a double knot. I've worn size 7.5D shoes since high school. I have never ordered a pair of 7.5D shoes that did not fit just fine. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I had no issue with the size of these shoes - fit perfectly after about two wearings (stretched a little). Comfortable and good looking too!
UPDATE: Been wearing these shoes for 6 months and working out 5 days a week at the gym. I'd estimate these shoes have close to 500 miles of walking on them. They still look and fit great. And,by the way, the shoestring problem mentioned above has turned out to be a non-issue! When/if this pair wears out I'm going to order another pair.
UPDATE 2: After a full year these shoes are still going strong. They have well over a thousand miles on them plus another two or three hundred hours of wear for weight training. They do not look new anymore but are still in very serviceable shape. I scored when I made this purchase!
