Reviewers are satisfied with these shoes stating that they are made from high quality materials and as such are worth the price. They note that it is easy to see how these shoes will really last especially if you won’t be wearing them regularly. However reviewers note that because of the pointy front these shoes are not true to size so you will have to order a size up or even more if you have wider feet.
All in all these are great shoes for anyone gentleman who wants to look sharp right down to his feet and also want a shoe that is durable and made from the highest quality materials and one that provides the optimum comfort even if you have to wear it all day.
