Shoes have a very narrow fit and are longer than usual. Bought because I wanted a slip-on with a professional dressy appearance. If you have narrow feet, they're a nice shoe. My feet are exactly male average in length/width and these shoes were too narrow for me.
These are nice looking shoes, but am returning them to get a another newer pair of style 1202, Statesman. These are a longer, narrower looking and fitting shoe. I usually wear 11-12 medium. I got these in 10.5, medium (I fit in 10.5 in Statesman also), which is the only width available. They were uncomfortably tight in width and the shoe extended almost 2" beyond my big toe. If they came in wide width, then perhaps they would fit, but in the medium, they just don't hack it. Also they just look like long, skinny shoes. I don't particularly care for that look.
Second time buying the exact same pair. The last pair lasted me 2 years and could've lasted longer. I just wanted a fresh pair. I did recommend these to a coworker and he bought the same shoes. Everytime we see each other I always say, "Hey man those are some nice shoes!" And hes like "Thanks man you too!"
Love the look of the shoes though I have very wide feet so I have to either order my size or a size larger than I normally wear. Would be awesome if this style came in "wide" sizes.
I've had these shoes for almost two years, I polish them and they keep holding up.
