I've never heard of B.r.c.d., and couldn't find much/anything online. My dress shoes are normally upper/middle bracket: Bocco Bucci, Geox, etc. but these shoes looked great, and so was the sale, so I held my breath and clicked "purchase". That's trust in Sierra Trading.
On delivery I opened the box... greeted by a wooden shoehorn. Each shoe individually bagged. Perfect seams, cobbled leather soles, stacked heel, and the vintage 'worn' look was nicely done.
The fit is perfect, even the shoe width and toes. True to size. The initial slip on required the shoehorn, as it should due to the shoe style. Footbed is shaped well for an arched foot; no insert needed or wanted. Very comfortable all day... not in a driving or walking shoe league, but slipons normally have to break against my ankle, heel, toe... nothing. Zero redness at the end of the first day.
I haven't had them long, so I can't speak to durability. I am not at all concerned from what I've seen; couldn't be more impressed. Made in China... Italians should be worried. These shoes are at that level.

Really nice hight quality shoes. A touch narrower than some mediums, but not much. Otherwise true to size. I have had them for maybe 3 months and they have worn really well, and I typically go through shoes really fast. I think they look a lot better on than they do in the pictures.

I brought these shoes because of the rare and unique color for men. We have so-o little choices, so these met not only a need but a desire. I had read about the sizing issue but decided to go with my regular size because of a heel spur injury. Even though they were comfortable, they were, as advertised slightly much larger than expected, so I returned them, with no problem, and got the size smaller and they are just fine. My shoemaker who added heel and toe guards for longevity made a reply to the niceness of quality (leather, color, etc.) and how expensive they must have been over a pair of crocs.
Go figure, so I am not sure what the other guys were searching for in a shoe, but I am very satisfied with shopping at Sierra Trading Post.

These shoes appeared to be made of decent quality. The reason that I sent them back was because they are much longer/pointier than I care for. The insoles also didn't provide much in the way of padding.

I noticed that the negative reviewers didn't say whether they actually ever bought or wore the shoes, so I took a chance. I normally wear a 12 1/2 or 13 and bought a 13 in Asphalt. These shoes look nice and slightly weathered right out of the box. The packaging places each shoe in a velvet/felt cinch bag. The shoe fits perfectly snugly and was very comfortable for a whole day's wear. There were no rub spot or discomfort in any way and they look very stylish.
I really like these shoes and am only taking one star off for not knowing how long they will last under normal wear and tear. If they do... they're a 5-star shoe for sure. I'm not sure where the negative reviewers are coming from.
