I was looking for a dressier leather sneaker to wear with jeans for a date night. After shopping virtually all brands and style options, I chose this pair as I preferred the style and I've owned many pairs of Rockport with great success. I'm pleased with this pair so far. The product matches the pictures and description and as I said, I really like the style. The construction quality seems sound and based on my prior experience with Rockport I believe they will be durable. The fit was true to size and they're extremely comfortable. I wore them on a long day downtown recently with a lot of walking on pavement and they felt great all day. They only minor issue I've noticed is the leather in the toe cap creases somewhat where your foot breaks. It doesn't particularly bother me, it may others. I use shoe trees when not wearing them to keep the shoes stretched and maintain their overall appearance, so that will help mitigate the creasing. The shoes are leather, so over time I'm sure they will wear naturally and develop a more vintage look; I'm fine with that.
