Out of all my shoes I must say this is my favorite pair in regards to style. They look great and I have received many compliments when I have worn them. I feel they are quite comfortable and have worn them to work for 8 + hour days with no problem. The top of the shoe does feel a little low and it took some time to get used to, at first it felt like the shoe might slip off at the heel or rub my heal. Once I got used to the low top I have had now issues with them at all. I would of given my review 4-5 stars but I have a concern with the bottom of the shoe. The half leather half rubber sole has not been my favorite. I feel like the leather wears unevenly for some reason... it appears that parts of the bottom of my shoe look more worn out then others and I have some concerns about how long they will hold up over the years. Another small annoyance is I feel i constantly get pebbles or small rocks stuck by the rubber sole. When I walk into a building with stone floors and I feel a clicking sound and a poke on the sole of my shoe, so i am regularly checking the bottom to make sure no pebbles are wedged in there. Other than the soles, I have had no problems with the shoes. I think the leather/rubber sole is a personal preference, but not one I would recommend.
