good shoe

The shoe fits great but I do wish they made an 11.5. I usually wear these to go to work. Now I'm not trapped wearing an uncomfortable dress shoe. I would recommend this for anyone who want a nice dress shoe replacement but be warned that you can't slip it on easily.

Good then great

Overall, great shoes. It's starts off good but gets better as it gets broken in. Flexible and sleek, definitely great for business casual looks. But be warned, due to the grip (which is really grippy if that's your thing) the shoes are going to squeak LOUDLY on polished and buffed tile floors. But I still highly recommend.

Great shoe

The Gobi is a very comfortable shoe and seems to be well made. Only time and miles walked will tell how long they hold up. The only negative point would be that The right and left shoe have very different leather characteristics. The right shoe is soft and worn and the leather in the tongue is thin and supple. In contrast the left shoe is thicker, more ridged and contains a stiffer leather.
