These are my husbands favorite shoes! He has had 3 pairs in the past 3 years. The most recent pair I purchased for him as a birthday gift. They arrived quickly and were brand new. These shoes fit just as standard Nike shoes do. You don't have to size up or down. They also are made in a more relaxed way, so there is none of the annoyance of feeling like they need to be broke in. He took them from the box, put them on, and went to work. He is in the Army, so he wears them daily for pt. They really suffer a strong amount of abuse because of the amount of running, jumping, etc. that he does in them during the morning pt hours. However, my husband also wears these as his daily shoes. Anytime that he is not in boots, these are on his feet. Other brands would not last 12 months with that amount of wear, but these shoes hold up very well. Normally when we replace his, it is for the color, not because they are ruined. In fact, when this pair was purchased, he kept his old ones for when he has to be in mud.
The first pair we ever bought were extremely expensive. We purchased them in a store in the mall, paying almost twice what they are listed on Amazon. I highly recommend purchasing here to save the cost. I was upset with the cost of the first pair, but after seeing how long they last I know that they are worth it. However, purchasing them on Amazon was even better because the cost was significantly cheaper.
Clearly, this shoe is extremely durable. My husband uses them for things aside from walking and running as well. He also wears them when we hike, bike, rock climb, etc. I like that they are flexible, so he doesn't have to purchase new shoes for those different adventures.
I highly recommend these to everyone!!
