Pros and cons...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 12D
- Height: 5'11"
- Weight: 220lbs
Pros: The shoes are quite handsome. I might try out some different laces but they look great. The leather material feels synthetic and maybe a little stretchy but it looks nice. The fit is true to size, fits my foot like a glove. They are flexible like an athletic shoe but the outsole provides a sturdy platform with a lot of grip to it as well.
Cons: The one concern I have is where comfort is concerned. There are some rough edges where the tongue was sewn in, right under the first set of lace holes. They scratch the top knuckles on my big toes in both shoes. It’s worse going downhill. It’s bad enough that I feel like they could blister after a few miles. It could probably be resolved by wearing thicker socks, except that I bought these specifically as summer shoes to wear with lightweight socks. It’s one of those things that will either work itself out or it won’t, and I’ll end up doctoring the shoes somehow. Another thing is that they seem a bit overpriced for what they are. That’s subjective and others may feel differently. I used a 20% off code that brought the price into more reasonable territory.
