No cows were harmed in the making of these shoes. However, many, many plastics gave their lives so that I could envelope my feet in ugly, airtight plastic, and look less attractive to women, while ensuring my coworkers a brief game of .."What is that smell?". I read other reviews, and I'm certain those reviews are not for the same product. Despite the silver painted "Kenneth Cole Reaction" painted inside, these are the type of shoes you buy at a drugstore, not a Nordstroms. The tongue and box both identify the model as "SIM-PLICITY LE" The tongue clearly states that the upper and sole are man-made, and that the lining is "Man Made/Textile" They aren't at all leather, and I suspected as much as soon as I opened the box. The plastic is somewhat supple, I can't say how long until they would crack. The insole is not removable, so I'm guessing these would smell bad in about 7-10 wearings. I just threw out 2 pairs of better shoes than this purchased from a Payless.

If you want a great shoe then check out the Kenneth Cole New York line. The Reaction models are the less exspensive versions from Kenneth Cole. For example Overstock has a great price for the Kenneth Cole New York Men's 'Merge' Oxfords

I bought these shoes for my boyfriend who was in dire need of a new pair of black shoes for work. We ended returning them because they dug into his heels when he wore them, but they seemed like a good shoe, just not very comfortable.

I purchased this same shoe at Nordstrom several years ago (for double this price) and it has been a great utility shoe. It works great with suits and sport jackets but is versatile enough to work well with jeans and a casual sport shirt untucked. The rubber sole is perfect for the messy weather we frequently get in northern OH............it keeps your foot warm and dry since it doesn't absorb the moisture like a leather sole shoe does. It is a great shoe to travel with since it is versatile enough to go with everything from jeans to suits because it helps you travel light! This is a great shoe for the money!! You won't be disappointed if you purchase it!
