I work at Starbucks and am on my feet all day, and compared with my combat boots these shoes are amazing.. I’ve had hot coffee poured on my foot and didn’t even realize it. The slip-resistency is fantastic. I never got a blister while breaking them in. The laces are a pretty short, so I knotted them and just tuck them into the shoe after pulling the shoe on. They don’t rub and I haven’t ever walked out of them, they fit nice and snug. The arch support could use some work but overall I’m very happy with my purchase. I’ve always been of the mind that buying one good-quality, durable expensive thing is better than buying a low-quality thing that I’ll have to continuously invest in. This is definitely a smart one time investment and I recommend it.
