    I bought these around 6 months ago as a shoe to wear at the office. Overall they are a rather simple looking shoe, which is exactly what I wanted. Pretty expensive for what they are, but as we all know, there are not many choices when it comes to minimalist footwear that we can get away with in a profession environment. So far they have held up very well even though I wear them 5 days a week and sometimes out on the weekend. I don’t know how they would wear under tougher conditions.

    Pro: Not bad looking. Very thin sole with plenty of ground feel.

    Cons: they were tight across the top of the foot and loose on the heal. They did break in nicely though it took some time. Some days they get hot and I have kicked them off under my desk on warmer days, but that is true for most all leather shoes.

    Overall a decent shoe for the office and casual wear, although pretty expensive for what they are.
