Perfect for any time.

I loved how these fit right out of the box. Extremely comfortable and formfitting. There was no need to break them in. I will be wearing these shoes for a very long time. I plan on getting another pair.

comfortable and casual

These shoes are great. I would say size up bc they do narrow near the toes a bit. I usually like shoes snug (10.5) but my toes didn’t fit. I replaced them with an 11 and they are great. It’s the perfect dress up but still semi casual shoe. A great everyday replacement for sneakers.

Must buy

I had just returned from a trip, during which I was reflecting on the need of a shoes that would be used in both relaxed and outwear, so it would allow me pack lighter. Once back, I found these and they have been one fantastic versatile shoes. Packed them on my next trip to Portugal, and they were worn during the day and night.

Incredibly Comfortable!

They are made of the softest leather. They look great and I have already had a lot of compliments. They look good with jeans or dress pants. They feel like a slipper rather than a shoe. They are true to fit. I wear a 10.5 and it fits perfectly. I also like that they pay a living wage to their workers.
