These are sharp looking dress shoes and appear to be well made but of course time will tell on that. I have just tried them on for the first time and they seem to fit well and are comfortable but one word of caution on the fit. These are narrow fitting shoes.....I typically am a B or C width and the shoes seem to fit fine for me. If you require a wide width (D or E) I think these shoes are going to be a problem for you. I noticed some reviews mentioned the fact that they purchased an extra half size to achieve a better fit. I am doubtful this strategy will work if you need a wide shoe.
