- I actually have these in both colours, the black and the tan (mostly suede) ones. They are very comfortable, well-made shoes.The suede pair are even more beautifully soft than the black. The black are more like handbag leather, than shoe leather, very nice. Also go anywhere shoes - you can wear these with jeans or cut-offs, or a summer dress. Ideal as your 'smart' holiday shoes, particularly with the fit.
The fit is very adjustable. I have oedema in the ankles, made worse by some recent drug treatment. I can have the lace loose for now, and tighten it up later on after the effects of the treatment have worn off. I have the standard width fitting, which fits me fine.
I got both these pairs in the sale, but the quality would be worth the full price. Bear in mind that they have leather soles on the bottom. I normally have a Phillips sole put on straight away, but you would need to walk on gravel, or similar, otherwise first.
Personally I would have liked to get these black ones (and the other gladiator-style ones that I bought) with silver 'furnishings' rather than gold. That would be much more Rock N' Roll... I have grey/white hair, and don't wear anything gold any more.
