Quality construction: good canvas, sturdy laces, good rubber to shoe bond, tough wearing sole. Perfect fit to start with. I like to wear a bit of heavier sock than a dress sock with these. I wear black athletic socks
. The sole lasts a long time. I wear these with jeans
. They are a grown up step above a Converse
Chuck high top but feel like it when you wear them. My last worn out pair is now my yard work boot. They are perfect for casual wear, night out and even light hiking
. They are awesome for cool/cold weather beach hiking
too. I need another pair to hike in because I don't want to get my causal pair dirty. The first color I got was a little too intense for me (my wife!). I can wear them all day. Cant say enough. Love 'em. One thing, the lug sole is a deep waffle, they can chew up the yard when I run around playing with my toddlers. It lasts too.
