Very well made, but a couple potential issues

Reviewed by STP Fan from Pocono Mts, PA on Wednesday, September 6, 2017
These shoes are really well made, with lots of attention to detail in the pattern, design, materials, etc., and worth trying, even at the relatively high price for STP. However, there are two issues, which others have already pointed out: (1) the shoe is somewhat tight at the front, at the widest part of the foot, even after loosening the laces there; (2) the sole and insole combination used are quite hard, with almost no padding or arch support. (There is a little curve in the sole design that provides a little support that would be OK for those not needing much). For these reasons had to return them. But I would have gone larger if they had that size, and tried them with another insole, with more cushion and arch support. Re: sizing - I tried these in my baseline 'sneaker' size (1/2 size up from dress shoe size) and they still were too tight in the front.
