So, let's start by saying these are fantastic shoes. The build quality is stellar. They are extremely comfortable. They look professional enough for casual Fridays. I have no doubt that these will be my go-to casual shoe for years.

HOWEVER, I am a little disappointed in a few aspects. First, the price. It's a very expensive shoe. Second, the photo on backcountry.com is not very accurate. Be sure to google these shoes first and check out the overhead view. These are much more rounded and clowny than the picture on backcountry shows. I was expect a driving shoe look, but I got a clumsy-looking leather slipper. Last, the leather stretches significantly during the first week of wear. I'm normally a 9.5 and the length/toebox of this shoe are perfect, but they don't have the tight fit I was hoping for around my arch.

So, if you are OK with all of those things, go ahead and buy the shoe. I'm learning to love them and wear big socks, but it's not ideal- especially after spending $130.

too many compromises for the price. I had mine for six months before the face came out of the watch band. I never figured out how to use a route downloaded to the watch, although recording a route and then importing to google earth worked like a charm.

bought these guys because they are cheap right now and they look good. I also liked the lightness. Now that I have them I couldn't be happier. I wear them for a jog twice weekly and somehow end up wearing them to work afterwards. I just can't bring myself to leave them at home...

get 'em while they last.
