As others have made mention the leather feels and appears to be more on the micro thin side. Almost to more along the line of being a veneer.
The shoe over all is exceptionally light weight and looks good. However, it is not a running or sports shoe, I don't feel that it would up to taking the beating of any had use. Now if you are looking for nice looking shoe for wearing with your casual attire, this may be what your looking for. This shoe also runs on the long side of the normal fitment scale.
With one major painful exception. The way that the top of the shoe is designed and built the leather reinforced edge will rub and carve into the rear ankle area of your foot. I am currently trying to soften up this area of the shoe and stretch the leather rearward at the top rear edge to keep from having to endure this pain.
My left one rubs my ankle raw without socks which is disappointing but they look good with low profile socks. Runs a little large (.5 Size). I'm sure there are some knock offs out there on amazon but appear to be real. Laces are the perfect length
