I bought these with hesitation. I've never spent near this much on a pair of shoes. However the day they arrived and I pulled them out of the box it was immediately apparent that the quality of the material and workmanship was superior to anything I'd ever owned. I had to downsize from my normal 9.5 to 9 for the right fit, but have worn them steadily for about a year now. The soles have worn a bit (as expected for a 3x week shoe) but the leather has broken in superbly. A wipe with a moist towel brings a very nice shine out. They work great with jeans or khakis, semi-dressy or spilling beer on my shoes rock and roll shows. Unfortunately these are like a gateway drug though . . . now I want cordovan high boots.
Shoe Size: Fits half size smaller, Shoe Width: Fits true to width
