Luckily this shoe is a brand (Corso Como) I was already familiar with. Good leather quality throughout shoe construction adds to comfort and durability. That helped me decide to buy. Really great looking nice neutral and will go with everything. The only negatives for me are that the toe box is pretty snug, not painful and no arch support. With the good leather and a bit of a stretch through a couple of wearings and storing on shoe trees, should open up and be awesome. All-in-all I really like them.
Size12 since Age12 would recommend this product to a friend.
