Comfortable, average width, a little difficult to get on

This is a fantastic shoe. Extraordinarily comfortable, even without socks or the inserts. A little stiff at first, but they wear in well. Two important pieces of information for anyone looking to buy this shoe: a) they are average width, so for anyone with a wide foot (like myself), this may still be a problem area, particularly if you add inserts and thick socks, and b) even with the lacing undone and the tongue pulled fully back, the opening is still small enough that they are difficult to get on for someone with high arches. Love this shoe otherwise!

Good quality shoe

I like this shoe. The leather is a nice quality, and I appreciate having the laces to tighten the shoe to my liking. The length is appropriate, but the width is a tad wide for my narrow feet. There's plenty of room in the toe box. I'd recommend this shoe to others.

nice simple shoe- runs large

Nice quality and soft leather but had to return. The sizing definitely runs big. I am normally a 6.5 and the 6 was large. I also found the shoes a little difficult to get on. I felt like I was fighting the laces when I tried to loosen them to get my foot in.

I love the style and quality of this shoe but I'm not sure I want to spend the time re-lacing them every time I try to take them on and off.
