"I got these for Christmas for my brother, and he likes them a lot! They fit true to size and have held up well over the last seven months. He says the stitching is starting to come apart in places, but they are the shoes he wears 95% of the time, so take that with a grain of salt. Definitely recommended."

"I got these mainly to run with. I wasn't sure if they would be comfortable, but they are! Even the top of the inside is comfortable. That was something wrong with my last shoe. the sole was comfortable but the top of the inside had stitching or something that would put pressure points on my feet. Not these!"
