Great Shoe!

Got these shoes as a Christmas gift for my son. Right out of the box, I noticed their beautiful craftsmanship. The shape of the shoe is unique, and the leather is soft. These are great shoes, and I am very pleased!

One of my Favorites so far!

I have so far bot 6 pairs. This is one of my favorites, easy to slip on and off. The only downside to them is you must wear them with regular socks, (no half low profile ,, low visibitly socks) the reason is the rubber pull up stip in the back, will catch that type of sock, and slowly run it dow from your heel.

Other than that, love the shoe, it does feel a bit different when you walk, than the others, don't know if the sole having a different pattern has anything to do with it. Buts is a refreshing, light with shoe!

I liike them

It should have been explained clearly that this is barely a shoe- the most minimal shoe imaginable, more a slipper than a shoe. The sole is thin as a wafer with no support or cushioning at all. Definitely a shoe for soft or smooth ground and definitely a summer shoe because your feel will freeze on cold surfaces That being said I do like them. They are a lot like being barefoot and I can't wait until summer to wear them.
