Very comfortable walking shoe, but poor wear,
This review is from: Rockport Men's Northfield Lace-up (Apparel)This shoe has become my stock favourite.
I walk on average an hour a day to and from work, in all weathers, so need a shoe that is immediately comfortable, has a wide toe area (to allow my toes space to breath), is waterproof (to a degree), is smart enough for work, and is light. This shoe is fit for the purpose.
The only down-side is that the soles and heal wear down fairly quickly, so I have to replace them every three or four months. When the sole wears down, you can forget walking in rainy conditions as you'll be slipping like you've never learnt to walk.
I've not found any other shoe that meets my requirements like these, so will have to continue replacing them as needed. But at £42.50 today on Amazon, I have just had to buy 3 pairs.
An almost perfect shoe, just a shame about the wear.
