"Bought these for my boyfriend to replace a very old pair of casual brown shoes. He thankfully loves them and reports the shoes being very comfortable. The shoe looks great with jeans, but has a thinner sole than some shoes (casual and sneakers), so pants hang a little past the bottom of the shoe. This is my only "complaint" if that is even a complaint; probably not.
The leather has a very good color; not too dark and durable. After wearing for several weeks, they still look nice. I imagine they may scuff easily if scraped, as they leather is "raw" and not shiny/finished/protected like some leather shoes. We have sprayed them with the DSW water proofer/weather proofer for added protection and so far it seems to have kept them looking new."
