These shoes are a great value. I've had the pleasure of really breaking them in for about a month to truly get a feel for them. I use them mostly for short trips to church, but they would look just as home in the workplace. They go great with slacks or khakis. The fit of the shoes is very comfortable. I ordered my size and the shoes fit perfect! I was so pleased. The laces come pre-laced for the most part; I just had to adjust the length slightly. The rubber sole on the bottom will eventually wear out, but they seem to hold up pretty well so far after a month's usage. They have a sharp look to them. My wife, who is a big fashion police, noticed the new shoes and didn't give me any negative comments like she sometimes does - big win!! Anyway, I imagine I will be wearing these for quite some time. Definitely a keeper!
