Too good to be true? Not a bit of it,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mens SEAFARER HELMSMAN boat DECK SHOES M132 Navy-Brown UK10 (Shoes)
I feel compelled to write a review on these shoes. I have to say that when I first came across them on Amazon and looked at their price I was very skeptical. In fact it was one of those occasions where, over the course of a week, I would keep popping back reading reviews trying to decide whether or not to take a chance.
Finally I took the plunge (okay it's only £22 with shipping). I have to say I am incredibly impressed with them. It's been about a month since I purchased them and I honestly don't think I've had a shoe as comfortable as these for years. I've been wearing them every day to work in rain and sunshine (mostly rain unfortunately) and have had no problems with them at all. The quality of the build far exceeds my glass-half-empty expectation and I have just been turning the shoe over in my hand now checking every seam to see if there's something I can pick up on and there really isn't. They are really well made. Examining for early signs of wear on the sole returns nothing and so I don't get the impression that this will be a cheap and fast wearing shoe.
If I have to pick up on one tiny little detail then it's the laces. They are quite chunky leather laces which means I never feel I can pull them tight enough. To be honest though the shoe never slips about, nor has either of them fallen off :) so in short this really just a minor point. In any case laces can always be changed out
In summary I really do recommend these shoes unreservedly. Superb quality and comfort at a great price.
