This is my first time buying a high end sneaker for casual wear. Got the idea from my sons who are recent college grads. I grew up wearing Chucks and Purcells, so the idea of a leather sneaker that costs more than $100 was a little foreign. I now get it. These are beautifully crafted, hold their shape and color, and get a lot of use. No skimping on quality. How many times have I purchased a leather shoe to find the inner lining is made with a squeaky pleather. These are truly an all leather upper. Size wise, I’m a 9.5. No half sizes, so I went with 10s. They were a tad roomy for the first few wears, but then formed to my foot just fine. Wear them 2 to 3 times a week. Holding up better than expected. Great shoe. The packaging is a little over the top, but that make them a nice gift idea. Owned them for 3 months.
