As comfortable as any shoe I've had in my 64 years of life, some costing five times the price. I always wear a 10 1/2-D. I bought them exactly that size rather than a size smaller as they recommend and the fit perfectly as they should! Some customers have complained about an unbearable smell. All I cold smell was that light scent of leather-like material as most combo man made leather does, and not strong or offensive at all. Perhaps they have corrected these two problems I was worried about. 5 Stars and highly recommend them. Hardly any break in time. Feel as slippers do in about two days of wearing around the yard.
Break out the shine equipment and set to it! Keep these well tended to and I see them lasting you ages; from dinner with the family to an evening motoring along the coastline, these are a treasure to behold. Will purchase again and again!
I have worn this type of shoe for many years in the military. Now I sing in a men's group wearing a tuxedo. This shoe is very comfortable. They have thick soles that cushion the feet well for standing for a long period. Far more comfortable than the Bates shoes we had for dress uniform in the Navy.
