I echo the comments of other reviewers that this is not the best runner any of us have ever owned. What I espically like about the shoe is that they are comfortable (yes, size up 1/2 size) and look great as a casual shoe with jeans or shorts. Took them on a recent business trip and they do good double duty. Ok for casual meetings. Good enough of a runner to give me support and comfort for a short run < 4 miles.

Very nice shoe, but I don't think I would run in them. I bought them mostly for walking and everyday wear, for which they are great, but they feel very stiff and heavy compared to a modern running shoe. The retro look and subdued colors are also a plus in my book.
