Even though I thought they were a little pricey, I bought these for my husband for Father's Day as a casual summer shoe alternative to lace-up sneakers. He loves them! He says they are the most comfortable shoes he has ever worn and even encouraged me to get a pair, which I just might do. He wears them for everything from going out for a casual meal to walking the dog. He gives them a very high rating on all counts, and he is not usually one to get excited about any kind of apparel.
