Mephisto makes excellent shoes, that's a well-known fact. I can't say enough good things about the leather moccasins I have of theirs. This particular model feels very similar to their Match walking shoe. It's a comfortable, cushiony fit, but they tend to be on the bulkier side; if you were to play a game of tennis in these you'd be tripping over yourself. They are made for everything else however, as the Allrounder name suggests. The craftsmanship is spot-on, as the materials and stitching reveal. Definitely element resistant and very breathable. Although they are made in Vietnam, I can't see any reason to discount the overall quality because of this. This particular colorway - olive and bark - I found very interesting and unique compared to many other old fogie walking shoes. It has a skater shoe look which looks great with a pair of khakis. If you can catch them during one of STP's 30% off sales, you're getting a steal. The sole is very comfortable and solid. The midsole, however, felt a little weak compared to the heel and ball areas of the foot, which were very sturdy. The reason I returned these was due to the ankle collar which is pointed, as you can see in the picture. After two days of attempting break-in, my left rear ankle was chafed, so they didn't work out for me and the collar remained as stiff as a bat. What's odd is that my right rear ankle was fine. If they had been designed with the U-shaped ankle collar, which I find much more comfortable, I most likely would have kept them. This feature may or may not be an issue for you, the only way is to order them and try them on. Happy Trails.

I have worn Mephisto shoes before but none with as sporty a look as the Bromwell Oxfords. They are very comfortable, fit well and very well made. The shoe size I selected was a 10.5, as I fit between a 10.5 and 11. The 10.5 offered plenty of toe room. They feel a little wide but offer great support. I wear a little heavier sock with these shoes and there is no compromise in the comfort dept. I purchased a pair in black and found I could wear them with most anything. Two weeks later I bought the Brown pair as well. After, walking, light hiking and everyday casual wear, I rat these shoes as superb!
