I got this shoe because it was super nice and I do really like the style and its shine. But first I got a 9, and it was huge - I returned it. Then I got an 8.5 which I've kept, but it's still a bit big. It fits most comfortably with a thick crew sock, not a dress sock. I could be wrong, but I think an 8 might be too small. But how many times am I gonna exchange? The return/exchange policy is great though.I've had it about a year and there's a small tear on the seam toward the front. I've bought insoles because it's just not soft and supportive as I'd like. It's OK, but I've definitely had better. And the heel is excessively worn even though I only walk about 4-5 miles a week in them.It definitely looks good, but based on comfort, longevity and sizing, I can't recommend this shoe.
