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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigBrown Product has great features
The salligator like style gives the shoes a classy look. I am also going to buy a black colored pair to match my recently purchased casual and dress pants and shirts. I cannot wait to show my stylish shoes off.

I was delighted to find this shoe at JCP's The sales associate had to order my size and I was informed when they arrived.
I have always favored Florsheim.
Thank you for advertising that you carried this brand.

Good looking shoe. Had to order 3 pair before I finally got one that fit reasonably well. Sizing is not consistent.
