"As soon as I opened the box (they were mailed to me), I was in love! A very handsome and stylish shoe to say the least. I received my first compliment when I took them to a cobbler shop to have rubber sole savers attached. When I pulled them out of the box, three ladies in the store all stopped what they were doing to look while one said that they were very beautiful. Isn't that what we all want to hear when wearing dress shoes? On the flip side, they run very narrow, so I would recommend purchasing shoe trees when you purchase the shoes."
