A wonderful upgrade to the 'ol wardrobe.
on July 21, 2014
I've worn out several pairs of Dockers Trustee Oxfords in the past couple years, and I was tired of shelling out $50-75 for a pair of shoes every year. So, I started searching for higher quality brands that would last. Perhaps these shoes will only last 2 or 3 years, making the costs equal. Time will tell, eh?
So far, I love these shoes. They're gorgeous out of the box, and with a pair of chinos or boot cut jeans they look great. They're light and the leather has a great color to it (Walnut). It came with a shoe bag, which was a nice surprise, but I don't think I'll be using that. They don't have time to get dusty!
I found the sole to be a little slick at first. I haven't had any slipping problems since day 1, but, day 1 was a doozy. I was decending a wooden staircase and may have alarmed the neighbors with my landing. These were fresh out of the box, however, so perhaps go for a light walk on the sidewalk to roughen up the sole.
As time goes on, if I feel the need to update, I shall! But so far, no regrets!
