Driggs Messenger Bag

Wow! What can I say? Years ago, I had a black pebbled messenger bag that was a bit low rent. I hauled everything in that bag: car keys, wallet, phone, everything else that I needed on a daily basis. That low-rent bag eventually ended up in a rummage sale. However, I found this messenger bag from John Varvatos. This bag seriously melts in your hands; the leather is that soft and buttery. There is not a whole lot of structure to this bag, and some people would find that to be okay. The bag itself can wrap around your body. And one thing I hate about today's messenger bags is that every single strap on every single bag is made of canvas. Not this bag. I love how the strap is most similar to a belt: thick leather that continues the look and feel of the bag itself. This bag maybe pricey, but it is worth every penny. As someone said to me, this bag will last a lifetime.

These are nice shoes. When they say Lead they mean GRAY. The picture hints a shade of muted brown, but they're not. After reading some of the reviews about size, I ordered a 1/2 size smaller and they fit perfectly. The only thing that bothers me is they're stamped John Varvatos-USA on the inside and the soles but they are made overseas. A little pricey no matter who makes them.

These are handsome shoes with an excruciatingly low instep. I have a fairly high instep / high arch combination, but I seldom have any issues with any lace-up shoes, or even loafers. These were, unfortunately, painfully low and narrow across the instep, even while they were good in length. If you have thin/narrow/flat feet, you will probably love these shoes. If you have a high arch/instep combo, stay away. I am returning them today.

These boots are my favorite. Not just because of the "cool" factor, but most importantly for the comfort factor. Like wearing slippers all day long. Also the Zipper is my preference to laces, much easier to get on and off.

A great shoe. The first day I wore them they killed my heel; by the end of the day and I had to use a band-aid. I realized this shoe fit like a glove so well I did not have to tie the laces tightly like with other shoes. Now they feel great. I really like the simple style. Definitely more formal than casual.

Shoe looks great and feels great once it is on. But it is a little hard to get on. The "neck" of the shoe is a bit narrow, and it takes some effort to squeeze my foot through.

Boots look great and are versatile enough to wear with just about anything. The only negative comment I have about these boots are the soles. In my opinion, the soles felt a little thin for my taste. So it's not as comfortable as I would've liked.

Hello there, Zappos buyer. I would like to give my honest review based on my experience. I am a big fan of John Varvatos, in fact own some clothing, shoes, jacket and spring time is already here. Just want to give some rest to my foot - that's why I purchased these stylish sandals. I usually wear S.10 on shoes but I wear sandals before also made in leather that's why I chose S.9. The thing after wearing for multiple times the leather starts to loosen and I don't like that. I want a little tight even when I wear it for a year the leather is not that kind of loose. Color is antique like antique brown. Light to wear because they use rubber sole, not leather sole or like a made of wood that is used in leather boots. The style is like back in the era where in Rome used to. A bit pricey, and the customer service is excellent. Package arrived on the said date. And overall my experience with Zappos is satisfactory. Keep it up guys, and thank you.

I've had my pair for over a year now, and I still love them. I honestly wear them 3 or 4 times a week, since they go well with some work clothes and all my jeans. I have flat feet and wear orthotics, so my biggest criticism is that they don't give you a lot of support. I've bought several insoles to help with the support, but after a couple weeks they get smashed down and don't help as much. I also had to replace the bottom heel of the shoe since it wore down over time. That is sort of a negative, but considering how often I wear them, and how much I walk each day (about a mile to and from work), it was kind of expected. Overall I would recommend them, and would consider buying another pair myself.

Nice shoes and found them at a great price. Wear them with jeans and also with work clothes. Toe is a little wider than how it appears in the pictures. Other that that, happy with the purchase.

Excellent quality. Supple, flexible leather, pre-arced requiring no break-in period. Quality hardware. Never spent this much on a belt before but very happy with it.

Nice looking shoe. I ordered the mineral in a 9.5 because that is the size I wear in every other shoe. It fits perfect. I al so ordered the Converse Cut for Chucks socks and they work perfectly with this shoe. I can't wait until it warms up to show these off. Very pleased with my purchase.

I was very dissatisfied with the quality of the leather used to craft this belt. The leather is very thin and very brittle After wearing the belt only once just to try it on for size, the outer leather showed very visible crack marks throughout the length of the belt. Because of this, I can guarantee it would not survive more than a few wears. I am returning this product for a refund.

Good looking shoes. Quality leather. No insole to speak of which makes them uncomfortable for my narrow, flat feet. I added heel inserts but they are still not as comfortable as I would like.

Nice looking. Great for wearing with jeans or other casual wear. Have only worn them a few times so far, so can't comment on the quality of the leather or sole. Like most "fashion over function" shoes, I expect them to wear okay, not great. But I bought these at the sale price, so will be okay with them giving me just a decent length of wear.

These shoes run big, so I would advise to order at least 1 size down from your normal shoe size. Love the shoes and have been waiting for this style to come out. I highly recommend!

Great shoes! I have purchased my second pair to take on a holiday. The only downside is on extended walks, my feet could real feel the mileage.

My favorite boat show. I wear them to the office or out at night. They are great and comfortable. True to size.

This is a nice belt. When I first opened the box I thought it was made of cheap leather (it is thin like cheap leather often is), but it is actually quite robust. I wear it nearly every day.

Despite some of the negative reviews posted, I have been very pleased with these shoes. I wear them for work two to three times a week, and I have no issues thus far (about six months in). They are comfortable and seem to be pretty durable.
