This is my second time purchasing this shoe by Macbeth. If you're looking for the simple style of an understated "Chuck" by Converse but can't stand the months of breaking it in, this is the shoe for you. The sole has a moderate arch for those who aren't flat footed, so comfort is immediate. The lining is thicker than that of a Chuck or even the Macbeth Elliots, so your feet wont freeze in the cold. I usually wear a 10 in other shoes, but for Macbeth its usually a 9.5, so they run a little big. My older shoes I'm replacing have stayed together very well, the inner lining in the heel was the first to wear out, but the shoe is still comfortable and the outer lining is dirty, but perfect condition. All in all, my go to shoe, highly recommended.

Took a 25 minute walk in them. Now have two big blisters on my heel. Hurts like hell. Plus, after 2 weeks they still squeak. Also, the laces are way too long, keep stepping on them. Regret purchasing these as they're more expnsive in Sydney, Aus.

They were OK, but I thought they would be way better. They felt very narrow and they were extremely stiff. The heels would rub on the back to where I couldn't wear them after 10 minutes. Nice look, but terrible feel.

Brands I'd also recommend: Vans

I've have a pair of Macbeth Elliot shoes that absolutely love, so when I bought these I thought I would love them too, but that wasn't the case. Hated these shoes, the heel of it hurt so much it was too painful to wear. I really loved the way they looked, but the pain was too unbearable and I had to return them.

Little thorn on this one. Didn't exactly look like the shoe on the picture when I received it. Not saying that is it false advertising but I was a little frustrating having to return it. The part covering your toes is pretty hard and she shoe in general felt pretty stiff.

These shoes looked pretty awesome when i got them, i put them on and they were comfortable, i wore em for about a week and a small tear appeared on the part near the ankle. Then another tear appeared on the same place on the other shoe. Then the back on the heels tore. then the toes tore. ive had these shoes for about a month and they look like old shredded rags. DON'T buy these unless you take excellent care of your shoes and will wear these like once a month. these aren't everyday shoes.

I am going to order these shoes because I love Macbeths and I also have two other pairs of Macbeths. I really enjoy them. They are really comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: adidas, nikes, or vans

I loved the Matthew from Macbeth and I have a lot of Macbeth shoes. The material is light with a large bit of rubber around the base of the toe for good durability. The insole has a extra bit of padding foam underneath which is nice though it does wear after a while like most shoes. There is not a lot of cushion on the inside so buy your size as this is one of the only Macbeth shoes I found fit true to size on the first try. One of my favourite features of this shoe is the big of reinforced strip of rubber on the inside of the heel, to fiz the problem with the Eliot. This bit of rubber makes the heel harder which makes the shoe easier to put on and after a lot of wear it's still in tact. Another low profile shoe so there is not much arch support. It is a bit wider than the Eliot though not much but the light material does allow for some give. All in all a great shoe by Macbeth.

Comfortable vegan shoes. They run a little narrow but unlike other shoes, they are able to fit wide feet without causing pain over time. I've used them for short hikes, walks, and bike rides. I would not recommend these for anything more strenuous as they are really just meant to be a basic casual shoe. The gray laces they come with are ridiculously long, and pop way too much until the shoes get a little dirty. Other than that, nice fit, nice style, are my "go to" shoes outside of work.

I bought these for my boyfriend because he needed a good walking shoe before we went on a trip. The look on his face as soon as he tried them on was something I'd never seen when he put on shoes before. I think Macbeth has finally turned him away from cheap Target sneakers! Very comfortable for all-day wear.

Good overall shoe, or two. Took them to Scotland, and walked all over. They kept my feet dry and warm!

These are comfortable nice shoes. They run in Converse size though. So if you skateboard and wear size 9 1/2, buy a size 9.

I've had trouble finding shoes throughout my life for I have flat feet. This shoe is different: simple in design, it fits great and offers me great arch support. It's a great casual wear shoe and I highly recommend it.

Since Macbeth doesn't make a lot of women's shoes, they're quite hard to find in the right size. These are great shoes, size 5 fits perfect (usually a size 7 in women's).

The positives for me are the style and the price. On the other hand, though, mine broke down pretty quickly (2-3 months) around the heel - the canvas beginning to tear off. The material behind the heel wastes away while you're breaking in the shoe, so the back of the shoe digs in to the skin for a little while. And the shoe does not allow your foot to breathe very well. I like them but wish they were a little higher quality to address those issues. Good thing they're cheap so you can buy another pair after a few months.

A very unfortunate purchase from another site, but I figured people here should know also. I love the look of these shoes, but after about an hour of decent wear, my heel started to be rubbed raw from the back of the shoe. Not only did it make an awful squeaking sound, but it was starting to blister my foot. Also, the shoes tended to rip when pulling them on. Don't bother with em. These have made their way to the garbage, and while I'm a supporter of the Eliot, I would stay very far away from the Matthew.

This is the 8th pair of Macbeths and 6th pair of Elliot vegan's I have ordered. I love them...Best shoe I've ever worn and at 50 bucks it is a no brainer. Just do it, with Macbeth of course.
