Excellent Casual Shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10.5

I had the same pair of shoes before in the dark earth color. After putting those shoes through the wringer and lasting for a little over a year, I recently decided to buy a new pair, and I have no regrets. These shoes are incredibly comfortable, stylish, and are interchangeable in how I go about using them. Whether it is for work, a night out, or for lounging back at home, these shoes meet my needs. The only thing I wish is that I could have purchase them in the dark earth color instead of black!

Great shoes!

Great every day shoes that are comfortable and stylish

Easy all around Kicks

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 10

I was looking for a more all around shoe and not a sneaker for a nice casual day at the office or hitting up the local ice cream shop on a Sunday stroll and these seemed to fit the bill.
The material is a bit stiffer than I expected but still fine and when standing and moving around the office all day they I don't notice the stiffer material. I tend to wear a 44 (10) in most of cycling and casual shoes. I do feel that these run a tick large and that maybe a 9.5 might have been a better choice as i do get a tiny amount of heel slip. I hung onto the size anyway as I don't do a lot of walking and most of the time I wear really thin cycling socks.

From big toe to back of heel I measure my foot at roughly 10 1/8" or 25.5 cm

Excellent all-purpose shoes

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these in the dark earth color. They're a dark brown, and the orange laces are just enough to be an accent and don't look out of place. While I doubt you'd want to wear these to a wedding, anything less than that these will fit right in.
These ran true to size for me, as I always wear a size 9 for Merrell. They're also incredibly comfortable - I wear them all day every day, and often forget to take them off when I get home.

Color discrepancy

    The dark earth color is all brown and not the grey it appears to be in the picture.

    Great Style

      I bought these in Black optimistically hoping they were as grey as they're pictured. That's not the case, unfortunately. They truly are black. I decided to return them for that reason but liked the shoes and am thinking of buying them in Copper or Charcoal instead.

      Edit: I ended up buying them in Charcoal and they're great!
