Men's heritage Black
This is my second pair of heritage. Had first pair for 2 years before wore a hole in the soul. I have wide feet and high arches and these shoes are painful out of the box. But as with my first pair after about a week they do stretch out and are some of the most comfortable shoes I’ve had. My major complaint is the poor quality of the inserts which fall apart rather quickly. Would be great if they used real leather insole.
I ordered my normal size and they fit perfect. I like them a real lot. Have 4 pair now.
I gave these to my fussy son for his birthday. This is his response:
They are AMAZING! Wore them to a conference I attended this week, best shoes I’ve worn in years.
