Latest ReviewA few years ago I remember having a pair that lasted me longer than any other pair of shoes when I used to skate. I bought these because I wanted a good quality and stylish shoe again. I typically wear a size 9 1/2 and that's what I ordered. When I first put them on I absolutely hated it and couldn't decide if I got the wrong size, or if the quality just started slipping over the years. The first day I took them off half way through because they hurt my feet so bad. The second day I manned up and just wore them the whole day saying "I spent this much on shoes, I'm going to wear them". The 3rd day I put cardboard where the back of the shoe would destroy my heel to try and keep the pressure off. The 4th day I replaced the cardboard because the first one got too beat up. The 5th day I didn't use cardboard and it wasn't as bad as the 1st day. And now about a week later they are just about broken in and I find them very comfortable. They are a narrow shoe so if you have feet that are even slightly wide, I would recommend getting maybe a half size up to help out on the break in period. The quality of the shoe looks great. The suede will definitely last longer than any canvas shoe, and to me personally its a very well designed shoe. I don't skate anymore, so I'm hoping these shoes will last even longer.
