A very serious pair Overall Product Rating (5 out of 5) 8/29/2014 By Anonymous I got the DK Brown/Red. First impression: "Wow I got the wront size". You can see the red in the stitching, it is not too flashy, and when dark you can't see it at all. It comes with two different color laces, I went with the red. The thing with this pair is that it is too serious, not necessarily formal because I wanted a classy yet casual shoe. And Brown with red laces pulls it off, but not so much with the brown laces. As soon as I opened the box I realized they were big, that new shoe the smell was fantastic leather, and the color was darker than in the pictures. Now if you take a picture with high lighting and flash then you will find that the colors match to the image presented here, but under regular light they look darker. To my surprise they are really solid, the sole is very sturdy, the interior is perfect, true to size as well. But the design is boot like, meaning a harder shell. They are not light per say, they are really good looking, but overall I got the impression that they were not very casual unlike you dress real good all the time. Recommend? Sure, but remember they will make you feet look big, they look darker in real world lighting, and they will make a strong sound on every step. About them being shinny, I have no problems with that. The looks, texture, and the color are top quality. The inside was my biggest positive surprice. I like them a lot. I am a size 8.
