I read the reviews about laces not staying tied, so I tied a reef knot and it works. The shoes felt small at first and I worried that I should have ordered a Wide and half a size bigger, but they are loosening up as I wear them, so I am becoming more and more pleased. I like that they are called Beacon shoes because I love lighthouses. I will probably buy the lighthouse shoes as well. Thanks.

I wear size 9.5 in mens and I ordered these in size 11. Great quality, perfect color, and surprisingly good fit. I absolutely love the styling of these and I've received compliments every time I've worn them. Laces are impractical but I tuck mine anyway.

Received several compliments from complete strangers on my first day wearing these, and that has continued for the past several weeks. I wanted a step-up replacement for my suede/cloth mocs, and these seemed like a more durable option. The leather is gorgeous and as I break them in is showing some good distressing without looking beat up. I'm a true size 8.5 shoe (9s are almost always too big, 8s are sometimes okay, but usually a little tight) and the 8.5s fit perfectly.
My only complaint might be that the back of the shoe is a little stiff, but as another reviewer said, this will be less of a problem as they're broken in.
Just ordered my second pair because I never want to be without these.

Great looking, superior/high quality, thick leather shoe with plain, classic, simple styling. The leather is a little scratched, mottled and different on each foot, but it gives them a well-loved, well-worn look. The leather is fairly stiff, but I know after wearing them for 10 years they'll feel like butter- and yes, they will last that long. I love them, and have not taken them off since I took them out of the box.
