The shoe has a riveted steel shank which is nice for support but since the shoe does not breath it becomes hot and humid. the steel rivets then begin to rust/corrode in s very short amount of time which causes staining and odor.
These are very good work shoes. They are not meant to be dress shoes but hold up very well under daily use. So well that I have just bought a second pair. They are now listed as"relaxed fit"which the first pair were not, so will see if this adds or subtracts to the quality.
I like the way these shoes look, and I get compliments at work. The only thing I have against them, is that the insoles and comfort wear quickly. I work 8 hour shifts and I am up on my feet for most of the time, I can feel the fatigue in my feet after 3 months of use. Had to replace the insoles, but still a great shoe.
