I bought the brown pair and liked them so much, I went ahead and ordered the black. That said, do not expect to wear these shoes the day you get them. They require some serious breaking in. I wore mine a few hours a day in the house each day for three days before venturing into the world. When you first put them on, the heel will feel way too big. At least it did for me. But when the leather softens up a little, you can use the nylon strap to snug them up. Brilliant. Then the fit is PERFECT!!!
I hesitated which box to check to describe myself. These shoes aren't exactly trendy, stylish or conservative. I showed them to a friend of mine who seriously likes shoes yesterday and her words, "Not for me. No style."
But, if you want a shoe with a wide toe box, super comfort, and a great arch, then suffer through the break-in period with these. They look great with jeans and casual slacks.
