Footwear for formal occasions. Dress shoes are usually made of more delicate materials such as suede, silk, satin, patent leather, or peau de soie. Dress shoes often feature eye-catching designs, richer colors, and decorative ornamentation. Examples are business shoes, evening shoes, bridal shoes, and prom shoes.
Rubber is a material that features elastic properties and can be natural or synthetic. It is used in a wide variety of products such as gloves, tires, and athletic shoes. Because of Rubber's high elasticity properties, a chemical process called vulcanization is usually employed to harden the material and make it more durable, less elastic and more resistant to chemicals. Vulcanized rubber offers good insulation and excellent shock absorption.

I ordered the Bostonian Whip Plain Toe as an all-around basic shoe which I could wear for many situations - work, casual, dress - and that is what I got. It is comfortable, good-looking and basic. The fit was very true to size and width.

I purchased these shoes in Brown to wear in wet conditions. I had an occasion to wear them in 6" snow. Standing in snow as I cleaned off my car and walking in uncleared paths. The shoes repelled the water and snow. When I inspected the shoes they showed no sign of moister either inside or out. I also find them comfortable to where.
Wears this shoe: Mostly to the office
