by CoachP Quality shoe, but it doesn't look quite like the web site
Florsheim has made great shoes for years. My grandfather wore them. My dad has a few pair, and I've had a few pair, over the years. I was a distance runner for years, and I have some foot pain, so I tend to go with performance dress shoes like Sperry, M Neil, Dunham, Ecco, Born... I'm dressing more formally at work, these days, so I was looking for some dressier shoes. These look great online, but I wasn't so impressed, when I got them. The shoes appear to be a dark croc print all the way around, but actually it's the top surface of the shoe (the vamp), with a smooth, lighter shade of brown leather on the sides. When I went back and read it, the description does say this, but the picture appears to be a dark color all over.
The shoes are sturdy and well-made, though not nearly as cushioned as the styles of shoes that I've been wearing. They have padded leather insoles, but they still feel hard.
Also, the strap at the midfoot is several layers thick, and it is quite tight on one foot. It seems to be loosening as I wear them (around the house, a little at a time), but I'd have been in severe pain, if I'd tried to wear them an entire day right out of the box. But, this is an old-school company, and these are traditional all-leather shoes, with leather sole and heel. If they were loose from day one, they'd stretch so bad they wouldn't fit in a few weeks. It is what it is! I expect them to last for years, once broken in, though.

I had ordered this for my husband. He had a black one, same style that he loved...so I was glad JCP still had the same style, but ordered a brown one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by msak Great shoe for my husband!
My husband has these in black & brown, same style, and he's good to go a little dressy or a little casual. He loves the fit and comfort. He's hard on shoes and these indure really well. After a long time of wearing them he runs down the heals and I buy a new pair and have the older ones re-healed and polished and they are still like brand new for back ups.

The online buying experience at JCP was very easy. The shoes were an amazingly good price. The product was shipped well within the estimated time and arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shortoz Good looking shoe
These shoes are a great value. I have a wide foot and bought them because they had a Triple E width. They fit like they were made for my feet. Plus they were reduced with a coupon I had. I shopped on line and they shipped them to my local JC Penny.
I think they were a good investment for my feet.
