Not a throwaway shoe

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Pinelands Hiker from New Jersey on Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Excellent shoe, but runs very large, especially length. I normally wear an 11.5. I read the 7 or so reviews before I purchased and ordered an 11. That was too large. I returned for a 10.5. That was too large. The 10 I finally got was good, but even this shoe I put in tongue and heel pads.

The 11.5's I normally wear are cheap imported shoes, Maybe that is the difference. They often run small.

Also, this shoe has only two lace holes. Most of my other shoes have more. Plus, it is real leather, not plastic leather, and does need some break in.

After wearing frequently for a couple of weeks the width is snug, but not uncomfortable.

I am confident the shoe will fit even better with time.

It is unusually heavy, but it is superbly made and is resoleable.

For me, $75 for a $200 shoe is a good purchase.
