I purchased these shoes at the Newark Airport Johnston and Murphy store (where I had actually purchased some wonderful sandals several years ago). Traveling always makes me aware of the need for comfortable, versatile, lightweight shoes so that I don't have to pack too many pairs and these definitely fit the bill in this respect. They are as comfortable as sneakers, with excellent support, but more stylish and dressier (in a casual-dressy mode); great for walking and standing for long periods, but also for work or events where sneakers wouldn't be appropriate. The black leather of the pair I purchased is soft, excellent quality and so far needs minimal care and looks and feels lovely. I highly recommend this shoe!
