My husband is an executive engineer and his office is fairly casual, but like others in his position he likes to wear great shoes, top quality shirts and sweaters, and of course be comfortable but look sharp at all times. I was a bit worried about buying him suede shoes, knowing how men can be when it comes to footwear and he has always worn regular leather dress shoes and loafers, but I took a chance and bought him these in hopes he would like them. Well, they were a HUGE hit, he has worn them ever since he opened the box, to our family events and then to work, and he says they are not only sharp enough to elicit compliments from other executives and the president and VP of his company, but they are so well made that they are extremely comfortable! He asked me if they come in other colors and types of leather, and I do believe he'll be getting several more pair of these! I'm happy I took a chance, because he was a very happy man!
