Wow! I was actually a little concerned about what I was going to get when I purchased this shoe, but I have just about worn them ever since. The leather is soft and the shoes are well made, I think I am going to buy a brown pair now.

Absolute garbage! I had a pair and they had lasted about a month to 6 weeks before the leather bottom had worn away and torn. These are cheaply made and inadequate quality for the price. Seriously concider a thicker leather shoe if you are considering this style. These are not made to wear every day use.

These babies are sharp! So they just showed up in the mail today (which is insane - I ordered them at 4:00 yesterday) and a preliminary inspection showed me several things: 1.) They are a dang fine looking pair of kicks 2.) The color is a fair shade lighter than the picture indicated; with a good amount more of the 'worn' patina to the leather. This is not a bad thing! (Actually, it's awesome.) Bedstu takes pride in the individuality of each and every one of their products - so understand that your pair will not look exactly like the one in the picture! 3.) They appear to be a very sturdy and well-made pair of mocs that (hopefully) will stand up to plenty of wear and tear. Then I tried them on, and I noticed several more things: 1.) Mmmmm... comfy... please don't make me take them off. Ever. 2.) I usually wear between a 12 and a 13 (having a selection of shoes in both sizes, depending on the brand) - I ordered a 13 here due to availability and they fit like a glove...for your foot. They slide on easily without feeling loose on my foot. Perfection. 3.) Not much arch support here! Flat-footers beware, there is little to no stability to the arch in the existing footbed. I may choose to put a different insert in, but as shown in the video review - most of the structure of the bottom of the shoe is in the insert. I'm not terribly concerned though. All in all, I'm stoked about my new Surfliners. They're obnoxiously comfortable and look even better than I expected them to. That, combined with Zappos' top-notch service and freaky-fast shipping, puts me in the deliriously satisfied customer category! Thanks Zappos and Bedstu!

I bought these for my husband who recently retired. He wore heavy steel toe work boots all the time for 35 years. Good-bye work boots, hello, comfort! He loves them! He has high arches and they are comfortable.

Brands I'd also recommend: Well, I got my husband a pair of Crocs slides, but they're for Fathers Day. Stay tuned !

These shoes are like the ones you find in the back of your closet that have been missing for about 20 years (I know, who does not clean their closet for 20 years? Me). You put them on and you are reunited with your best friend who you haven't seen in, well, 20 years. Seriously, instant comfort and I predict your new favs. I ordered a half size larger because of availability, and they are perfect.

Have never owned a more comfortable shoe in my life. Added a pair of gel soles. Never want to take them off. True to size. Zappos is a great place to shop. Buy all my shoes there.

Looked like a simple kick around, wear all the time, barefoot, all through the summer shoe. I started wearing this al the time and the whole sole and liner came apart in less than a month. I like the design and external durability, but I cannot stand when a shoe that is supposed to be long lived just start to decompose from the inside out. I would not recommend these shoes to anyone, ever!

Not pertaining to the shoe Zappos never fails to deliver with fast shipping. Upon opening the box, the patena and color on the shoe were bang on to the photos. I normally wear a 10-11 depending on the shoe brand, so I ordered a 10.5 to play it safe. Initially they were a little snug to get on as with any leather shoe, but seem to be loosening up walking around the house. I have a narrow foot and these are pretty fitted for me, so if you have a wide foot I would not recommend this shoe. Overall the look is great, comfortable shoe, will buy again if they hold up.

Brands I'd also recommend: Onitsuka Tiger by Asics

Purchased these shoes for my son-in-law. He loved the shoes, and I loved the price. They were at least 20% less than the competition.

Awesome shoe because it looks like a shoe and wears like a flip flop. I'm a Floridian so flip flops are almost all I wear but these are nice enough that I can wear them to the office.

After seeing these online and reading about the company, I decided to get a pair for my husband for F Day. They are better than I expected, well made, comfortable and love the nuanced color (Black)! Very versatile! My husband is wearing them constantly. I want to support this company. I like their philosophy and design sensibilities. They are fantastic shoes and I will be my new "go to" brand for me and the husband!

These are definitely nice shoes but it takes awhile to get used to the sole. It feels like you are walking around in slippers. I also have wider feet so I had to wear them around the house for a few days to stretch them out.

I wanted a casual pair of shoes that were versatile and comfortable. The Bedstu Surfliner is a fantastic shoe for wearing with shorts and jeans. They look more broken-in than the picture, which I like. The leather is soft and fit is very comfortable. Highly recommend.

I have had these shoes for about a year, thinking of buying another pair now that they are on sale. Very comfortable shoe, great with shorts, jeans or just about anything. Thought if I got them wet with the bottom suede they would be ruined, not the case.

Great shoe for the summer! Easy slip in and go. Very stylish, goes well with shorts or jeans. Only downside is they don't have much arch support, so standing for long periods made my feet hurt, but at least they look good!

I bought this shoe and was aware of what I was purchasing. It looks great, but it was difficult to walk in with the way the sole was designed.

Color is more washed out than shown in picture. Tighter fit than expected, but stretches out after a few wearings.

Nice shoes, especially for those looking for ones with a thin sole (like myself). Unfortunately, these shoes have a fatal flaw. At least for the size 13's, the footbed really isn't wide enough (and no, my feet do not fall into the wide category when it comes to shoes). This causes the leather on the outer sole of the forefoot to rub on the ground, causing it to wear through fairly quickly. For me, it lasted for about 6 months of daily use, which is not nearly enough for shoes in this price category (indeed, I bought more expensive shoes because I'm tired of crappy 20 dollar shoes falling apart). Admittedly, I work on a college campus, so I do more walking than the average person, but not an excessive amount. Very disappointing, because the shoe was otherwise one of my favorites.

The shoes arrived and were much lighter than shown in the photos and had a heavy patina. For me, they were not nearly as attractive as I had hoped. They are also quite narrow for my foot. I will be returning them
