I was looking for a stylish shoe on the conservative side. This is it. It's hard to find one that will work for daily wear at the office (comfort) and also work in a dress setting. This one is definitely more for the office or going out. You may be able to wear it in a dressy situation on occasion, but I wouldn't purchase this to wear to the most formal event. It is a GREAT shoe for what I wanted. I would have loved this shoe to have a leather sole, but it doesn't. Non-leather sole also keeps it in the casual, business/casual, going out class. It is a beautiful tan color. I just got them and they are very comfortable. Obviously I can't speak of the durability yet. I like them.
