Rated 3 out of 5 by DukeOfNelson Lacking traction on wet surfaces
These shoes were comfortable right from the moment I opened the box and they remain comfortable 10 months on. If I had reviewed them in the fall I would have given 4 stars, but having worn them in colder wetter weather I have to drop a star. This is because of the poor traction on smooth side walks when there is a coating of frost or a damp growth of moss or lichen. A particular hazard are the metal studs placed one the margins of pedestrian crossings in the UK for example. When these are wet, the World Tour Walkers just skid right over them.
The shoes desperately need a more aggressive tread pattern to be safer in these conditions. I can't remember owning a pair of shoes that had worse grip in similar conditions.
For dry conditions these shoes work well and I can wear them all day while walking around a city.

Great on ones feet, when working and standing for long periods of time.

I ordered these shoes for my husband. He needed a casual, but professional looking comfort-shoe. He loves these. They are a good snug fit, stylish, but very comfortable during walking. He wears a size 8, and the Rockports fit as he expected. You always get quality when you go with Rockport.

My husband has owned three pairs of this particular shoe, and has really gotten a lot of wear from them, loves them, and finds them comfortable from the first wearing. I've noticed that the sole seems to provide a very stable movement for him- with other shoes, he seemed to turn his ankle at times, but has never done that when wearing these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hayman feel like bedroom slippers-right out of the box!
My wife purchased my first pair of these shoes over two years ago. The original pair is still wearable but I replace them about every six months because I am so hard on them.These have become my everyday shoes;they are the only shoes that I will buy now for work.(I have a hay and straw business and also drive a tractor trailer).They are comfortable,durable and nice looking for all casual situations.I highly recommend them.I have a spare pair in the closet at all times so that I will never be without them!

The shoes are okay but the round laces do not stay tied properly. For $100.00 these shoes should come with good flat laces.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CountryGent Good shoe but narrow toe
Overall, this shoe is of very good quality, fit and appearance. I walk several miles a day in it on urban streets and it is very comfortable-- except for the narrowing of the toe box. I like and need a square toe box for complete comfort. This shoe is good looking but with a toe box that curves in it can rub. I like the shoe and have kept it, however.

I have purchased this shoe 6 or 7 times in the past. They fit nice wear very well. And, I think they look "smart" enough for good casual dress. The shoelaces will outlast the shoe. Make good work shoes for what I do.
