I've owned severl pairs of these shoes and have always got great comfort and longevity.
Bought them for running because they were listed as running shoes. Definitely not for running. I bought a pair of downshifters for running (which are awesome btw). At first I was concerned because they look like 'dad shoes' to me. But I where them to work on casual days and to walk around in when I know I'm going to do a lot of walking. Very comfortable and they have some style, had a few compliments from people who pay attention to things like that, so I'm happy with the purchase.
Many complements. They kind of turn my socks blue like fake Nike's so a tad bit concerned about paying full price, but the build and glue lines are good and do not indicate any fakeness. Overall currently still my favorite shoe pair in my arsenal.
