Finally, Shoes my Wife and Daughter Like - Lasted 12 months past purchase date.
on January 2, 2014
Update: I'm actually 8 months behind on this updated review. I initially loved the shoes, as indicated by my first post. However, after 6 months I noticed that the rear strip which is sewn on was showing little threads sticking out like a two-days growth of facial hair. I only wore these shoes 1-2 times per week and mostly indoors or between the car and indoors. Then the little thread-hairs started popping up along almost every seam. I took a fingernail clipper to them, but they kept coming back (couldn't get close enough to fully severe them). Finally, the sole of the right shoes began coming off at the heal. They've been in the back of my closet since less than a year after buying. It just popped up on my radar as I'm looking to purchase another pair of chukka-style boots in anticipation of a much needed El Nino here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I definitely will overlook Calvin this time around in search of a more durable shoe.
