Got these for my husband. They fit true to size, and look great. They aren't a bulky looking shoe, and have kind of a dressy look to them. Usually he hates the shoe breaking in stage, and finds it difficult to drive stick with new shoes on. So far he has not had any issues, they felt tight at first, but after 1 day of walking around in them, they adjusted perfect like he had always had them. Much better than his old skate shoes for this time of year, he really likes them. Great price for the quality if these shoes!
