I only managed to wear these for about an hour before I had to take them off. The shoe is far too uncomfortable and stiff to wear.
I have a pair of 2011 daroga climacools, made of synthetic leather and breathable mesh. They are great. I got these in hopes that they would be a dressier version. While they look great, I just can't imagine enduring wearing them.
They were far too tight on the sides and on top. There was no give in the material at all. Even the soles seemed too hard, more like a non-compressable dress shoe than a sneaker. I'll be returning them this weekend.
Feels true to size
Feels too narrow
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
