"i bought these on clearance at the store. got lucky in my size. these shoes are sharp looking and very comfy due to a leather lining and gel cushions in the heal and forefoot. the toe is slightly pointy but not too pointy, and the shoe is not too narrow, at least for me. It took a couple weeks to break in the shoes to feel the best, and I see them lasting a long time. They have a good shine to them , so shining them up when they get scuffed and dull should take real well on the nice leather. I tried other brands of shoes on in the store such as bostonian and dockers and the lower cost brand they sell for $49 (I can't remember the name), they looked good but were not nearly as comfortable as this brand. Bostonian was close though."
