Never thought I'd to pay $100 for a pair of shoes until these Forzas but as they say about third time's a charm, this is it. The first pair I ordered online were Grayson; they didn't slip on as convenient as the Panther II's. Next was North which fit a bit better without the tight squeeze on my left toes but still didn't feel like true slip-ons when I needed a shoe horn and an extra hand to hold the tongue up. Finally, I acquiesced to paying the additional 50 for this model since Panther II is, to my knowledge, retired to my disappointment. So far, after a month of light use, this may be my go-to model should I need a new pair in the future.
