Nice shoe for the price - This is a good looking shoe - ordered them for my son. Comfortable after initial short breaking-in period. Hits a little high at the ankle bone. Cognac leather is nice stylish color for a young man's casual business attire.

Okay, so I bought this shoe for a wedding two days before the event. I know, shame on me. When they arrived, I liked the style and the fit so I rolled with them. HOWEVER.....once stepping out of my hotel room into the sun I was mortified!!! They were VERY VERY spotty. (think cheap spray paint on metal). I was literally sick to my stomach that I was going to have to wear these in public, especially to an outdoor wedding. A truly very cheap dye job on the leather as well as being very stiff. I did not detect any odor that others mentioned, but I would suggest if you buy these shoes, take them out into the sunlight before deciding to keep them. I am a boot and sneaker guy,as I live in the country and did not want to spend a lot of money on dust collectors, and with these you really do get what you pay for. They will be donated, as I will not be wearing them a second time. ICK, ICK, ICK!!!

Good looking shoe, however, it was too narrow for my feet. I have never needed wide shoes in the past so I don't believe that it's because I have wider feet or anything. Sometime Nike basketball shoes feel a little narrow on my feet, but they always still fit. So I'd say that if you tend to have wider feet, do not buy this shoe. Otherwise it seemed like a fine shoe.

This are a good looking pair of shoes for business casual dress. Genuine leather upper has a nice feel to it, but it definitely a bit rigid out of the box. They do rub a little on the heal area as you break them in, but this is to be expected from this style of shoe. Color and shape are as pictured. There isn't much padding on the insole, so if you are looking for a bouncy-cloud feeling after slipping into these bad boys, you might want to consider other options. For the price, I think these are a good value. The comment about the smell out of the box is true (you can definitely smell the polish as you wear them, but expect this to fade with wear).

Good for the price - Very good looks and comfortable, but the chemical (probably leather treatment) smells so strongly that I wore it once and it is sitting in my garage until the smell fades away.

You get what you pay for. I ordered this shoe to add a casual brown shoe to my business casual line up. The shoe is of fair quality, about what I expected for the price. The styling is great, it looks as pictured. Unfortunately, this shoe has two drawbacks: 1. The heel rises very high and the leather is quite stiff. Consequently, the shoe digs into the ankle bone and becomes uncomfortable. 2. The leather stinks. I wore the shoe to work one day and quickly got a headache due to the odor, and I also received a couple comments from my coworkers over the smell. I am currently airing them out outside. Who knows how long it will take for the smell to go away. Based on these drawbacks, I would not recommend purchasing this shoe.

A good value for the price. Not the best made shoe I have ever purchased. I will be interested to know how long the shoe will last. Certainly not an everyday dress shoe, not much cushion or support inside the shoe.

Terrible! Leather is bonded, looks and feels like a nylon table cloth. Cap toe is raw jagged edge, not folded under. Just a Terrible shoe.

Sad a

 

I'm several hours into wearing these shoes for the first time and I think I'm going to have to leave work and go home and take these shoes off during my lunch break. The shoes arrived yesterday and I opened the box to an overwhelming petroleum smell. I thought, I'll try to polish them and let them sit out of the box for a couple of days to air out. This morning I noticed the smell was still there, but I decided to wear them anyway. It has to wear off soon right? I've been sitting at work for a few hours now and I m starting to feel sick from the smell. I m hoping no one notices that I smell like I fell into a tank of gasoline, but then again, maybe they are just being nice. Don't be swayed by the Italian name, these shoes say "Made In China" on them and they smell like everything you'd expect from substandard manufacturing processes and materials. Yours truly, sad and nauseated!
