Comfortable but not sure about mfg. quality

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Random consumer from Catskill Mtns, NY on Friday, July 8, 2016
These shoes are very comfortable, but the manufacturing quality is not great, and I don't expect them to be very durable or to last overly long. I bought a size 10; they're a bit short for a 10, the heel is wide and the forefoot quite narrow, made for a lower-volume foot. The gusseted tongue is finished poorly, with rough lumps in the stitching, and I have to lace the right shoe loosely to avoid irritation. The gluing of sole to upper feels flimsy, and I fear eventual delamination. The sole is very grippy with a good pattern (albeit leaving a small footprint), but I wouldn't use these as hikers on anything more rugged than a rail trail (fortunately, I bought them as leisure shoes rather than hikers). I'd rate these as 3.5 stars, but can't round up to 4 considering the bad stitching in the tongue.
