i have been searching for this shoe for quite a while i could not believe my eyes when i saw it on overstock for such a reasonable price. the shoe is very comfortable and i would recommend it for leisurely walks as it may get somewhat uncomfortable if you plan to stand in it for long periods at a time. the surface is real leather which gives it a classy yet casual look all at the same time. the leather used can with stand stains and is quite easy to clean. a true buy that was worth every dime , nickel, and penny!
