Rated 3 out of 5Â by Dawgirl This is the third pair of these shoes for my husband. He has always liked these. The only ones has found that he can stand for 11-12 hours on concrete and walking all day. The manufacturer must have changed leather suppliers or something. The leather is not the same as it has been. It seems to "wrinkle" right out of the box. The stiching has also been changed, it was more of an off white, now it is black. Not a big deal, but not sure about the quality of this new leather. He tried to exchange at the store, but they are not stocked there anymore. Not certain if he will keep them or not, but what choice does he have for comfort.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by RavenAnn Excellent product, but with one concern
Incredibly comfortable work shoe. I would have rated the product "excellent" in every category if not for one issue. I've been wearing the shoes to work for about 2 weeks now and a few days ago I noticed some stitching that was already starting to unravel / fray. Other than basic standing, walking, and sitting, my job does not require a lot of activity, so the issue struck me as unusual for something only 2 weeks old. That said, I still consider the shoes excellent and have even considered buying a second pair to set aside for later down the road.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by ilazaro Very comfortable but....
I being buying this shoes for work for the past couple years because of the comfort and style, but until my recent purchase I noticed a change... still same level of comfort but a VERY STRONG LEATHER ODOR THAT WON'T GO AWAY FROM THE SHOES, WHICH IS ANNOYING BECAUSE I CAN SMELL IT FROM 5'10" AWAY WHICH IS MY HEIGHT. I thought it would go away after they would get some air and after a couple times of wearing them, but is not. Very disappointed! I wish I could return them.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by TeacherKCD Annoying and poor durability
These shoes were a bit smaller and did not stretch the way that leather typically does, which was fine. I am a teacher and bought them for everyday wear, but they were not up to the task. first off, they are annoying. they would squeak while walking on tile. this never went away and was REALLY annoying whenever teaching or walking through the halls. It was loud enough to draw attention from students inside the classrooms when i would walk by. I expected this to go away as i wore in the shoes, but like i said, it never did. worse yet, they are not durable at all. On both shoes the heels started peeling from the shoe. so they then became even more annoying, because they would now squeak and click. I glued them back together but they still squeak and are even more uncomfortable, which they were never that comfortable to begin with.
