Shoe looks good and fits comfortably. It's a bit snug so, if going to wear thick socks, buy half or one size larger. Has appearance of lace-up shoe but is a slip on. It stays comfortably on foot despite being a slip on. Not yet tried it in the wet. Have walked for half a day and had no aches or pains anywhere, including my feet. A good walking shoe for urban and semi-urban walking (what I do).
