These shoes are great if you want to be silently light on your feet. I think these would of been great for the Native Americans back in the day.

Very uncomfortable, do not plan on wearing these shoes for a long time. I am very tolerant when it comes to discomfort but this shoe truly is uncomfortable.

We had to wear these while I was in the USAF (1973 - 1980). My ankles took months to recover. Damaged a lot of feet. I know many of my fellow veterans that had to have foot and ankle surgery from wearing these boots during training and in the field. Why sell a product that does damage to your body?

I'm a little disappointed. The shoes are comfortable and fit well, but they look a little bland compared to the photo. The leather is very smooth and black, so unless you cuff your pants you look like you're wearing galoshes or firefighter boots or something. I tried adding red laces to give it a little more visual interest, but that hasn't seemed to work either.

This shoe is comfortable and versatile. It can be worn with a suit or more casual attire and therefore makes a great travel companion for the business/tourist.

I bought these for my son, a freshman in high school, because he loves the "retro" look. He LOVES them! They are very comfortable and stylish. He wears them every day. Just today, he told me that two girls stopped him and said, "awesome desert boots!"

I really love the look of these shoes as they remind me of years gone by! Unfortunately they are for younger feet! I am 50 and I found them to be way to flat and unsupported, even after buying inserts for them I had to stop wearing them. Also the suede looks dingy pretty quickly, especially if they encounter water. If you can get a leather surface that's better.
