I’ve been so stoked on writing this review since I ordered these about a week ago. They’ve finally arrived!
I opened the UPS box up to find my new favorite day to day shoes in a very simple white box, with the refreshing words “handcrafted in the USA” right on top. Upon opening this, I could just smell the Horween leather as I took them out of the box and immediately began lacing them up to throw on my feet for an evening of taking photos and seeing a good friend.
I went with my boot size (10.5D) and the fit on these is just perfect, I could of probably went down a half a size, but I didn’t really want to stretch the leather on these.
Putting them on I could instantly tell they were going to feel like amazing, and I’m familiar with the Vibram sole. My Red Wings have been a delight thus far; and they’re using this same exact work-boot sole. After walking all around down town Tampa for a good two hours, my feet are still feeling marvelous. The stitching on these is absolutely perfect and very, very sturdy. I examined the shoes closely looking for any imperfections or missed stitching, and there were none to be found. You can tell that George is taking quality very seriously over there, and that’s such a breath of fresh air.
If you’re looking for an everyday shoe that’s meant to last, and will age very well – I’d strongly advise you to keep a close watch on the Oak Street site for when the next round is out (in about eight weeks.) These are worth every cent, and they’re already priced very reasonable.
