Definitely trendy. Seemed to be well constructed. Run narrow which is great for me but definitely not if you have a wider foot. Also, not the most comfortable shoe in the world. I wouldn't wear these for an entire day but great for an evening out.

We bought these in an 11 (my husband is a 10.5) bc of review saying they run small. That's true, but they still didn't fit, maybe because my husband has boxy feet in front and these would be better for the long-toed, thinner footed man. Otherwise beautiful shoes and leather.

I got these to be my daily work shoes. They fit great but you'll need to break them in on a couple of long walks. I work in an office and I go on long walks during my lunches. These are stylist enough for me to wear to work and durable able to handle the daily beating from my walks thru the local park. The only complaint I have is the laces can snap very easily if you pull to hard. One of my mine did and I just replaced it with a new leather lace I got from Target.

These are okay if you can get them at a low STP price, but are definitely not worth the full suggested price. They feel and look cheap. I got the brown suede and they look decidedly unnatural. Over-dyed. If you are looking for something stylish, look elsewhere. These could have been a nice, simple and trendy shoe, but the freakish coloring just screams "Pay Less." They are comfortable (although hot), but for the same price you could get a descent pair of sneakers here on STP.

The Klein pairs with pretty much anything, casual to dressy, and is comfortable to boot. No pun intended. They are slightly narrow so you might want to order a half size up to give your feet some breathing room.

These shoes look great! They are a little bit narrow so order a size larger than you normally would. My shoelace broke after a few uses. They are a leather lace so the leather might have just been cut too thin in that spot.
