I have been wearing these shoes for close to two decades. They have been offered under the names French Shriner and Florsheim, and now Bostonian. They are well constructed, long lasting and very light in weight. They are trim and attractive. They remind me of wearing comfortable slippers. The only negative is traction. You need to be careful when walking on very smooth or slippery surfaces.

Comfortable but lasts about 3 weeks - No joke these shoes are really nice and comfortable. It really is like wearing slippers. But within a week the leather on the front was starting to peel off, within 3 weeks, the tread was virtually gone. I would not purchase these shoes again because they only last 3 weeks.

I purchased these to replace my prior Bostonian shoes. I have a particular foot in that the heel/tendon area must fit right and not be too low so as to allow for any slippage. Since I knew my prior shoes fit wonderfully I opted for the same size, style. From the moment I pulled them out of the box the shoes fit like a glove. They are comfortable and look good. They were slightly darker than I expected from the photo but that's not a problem at all. The only thing I will ding the shoe on is the feeling that my big toes on each shoe are sliding forward when I step. It's not enough to be a problem but the best I can do to describe it is that it feels as though the sole under my toe is missing (it's not by the way).

This shoe was true to size and fit perfectly right out of the box. I was impressed with the quality of the uppers and the insoles. The color is truly rich and the shoe appears to be more expensive than what it actually cost.

I'd also recommend: Florsheim

Very comfortable. Its thin sole feels at first like barefoot, yet the support is excellent, and the shoe feels fine from the first wear.
