Even though I was skeptical initially, the shoes turned out just fine and once I started wearing them for my daily commute, it kinda grew on me. These have narrow fit so people with wide feet should look for something else. Also, its made of synthetic leather so only time will tell about the longevity.
The shoes look surprisingly nice, but you only have to pick them up to immediately realize how poor their quality is. They appear to be entirely plastic, with hard plastic soles and pleather uppers. Besides being extraordinarily uncomfortable, I wouldn't expect these shoes to hold up well over time. The 13 also runs very small in every dimension.
