I’m only two days in, but these are now my favorite shoes. The leather is smooth, but not shiny. They fit well with regular dress socks or thicker wool socks. They are plain and simple. I can wear them with dress clothes or jeans.
As with any nice, new leather shoes, make sure to mink them up right away; that is, apply mink oil to waterproof the leather. Good thing I did, as it rained today.
