To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was one of three pairs of shoes I purchased at the same time. The others were a workout shoe (The New Balance Men's MX20 Minimus Training Shoe at amazon.com/New-Balance-MX20-Minimus-Training/dp/B00DOEQRA6/) and a work shoe (The Timberland PRO Men's 61009 Mudsill Low Steel Toe Oxford,Blue/Blue at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000XF2OKQ). I bought each in 14 Wide (this is sometimes called "2E"). The Oxford was for the office, the Minimus for working out, and the work shoe was for a sturdy sneaker and walking shoe.
These shoes are far more comfortable than the office shoe I had before and had plenty of room for a Dr. Scholl's insert for more padding. I like them very much but, like many dress shoes, they scuff easily — on the brake pedal of the car, for instance. Still a good shine and some TLC should keep them nice enough for some time.
They aren't a "dress" shoe, per se, but more of a standard office shoe that you can wear with just about any kind of khaki, twill, or dress slacks.
I had originally bought a pair of these to try off of a shoe website n loved them. I am required to wear safety shoes at work for NYC Transit and the shoes they issue are cheap n awful. I wear a size 14 + and cannot afford to tear up these clown sized feet. I loved them from the first day n decided to buy as many as i could but site didn't have any more. So my son suggested i check Amazon n voila they had them in stock n $60 less than what i paid on shoe site so bought 4 pairs. Super fast shipping n all shoes brand new in box! Love. Em
I have been buying these shoes exclusively for two years now and find them to be the most comfortable shoe I have worn. I am a big guy 6'3" and 300lbs I wear a size 14 wide. I am on my feet all day and these shoes make it possible. I broke my left foot around 4 years ago and these were the first shoes I found that don't kill me after 4-5 hours. I used to wear the identical shoes in brown 47028. These are my first black pair and after 2 months I can assure you they are the same.
