Comfort
Great boot but disappointing issues - by , Apr 16, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
This is a great boot, super comfortable right out of the box with no break in at all. But I have two main issues with it, the fit and the leather dye. My main issue with the fit was the narrowness of the boot coupled with the massively thick insert for cushion. I ended up taking out the insert and they fit much better so I just lined them with a thin strip of leather and let the soft vibram sole do all the cushioning work. The second issue I've had was with the toe of the boot fading so quickly. I bought these in January 2020 and have used them for light office work with a car commute so they have seen very limited wear. However, just after three months of use the color is already fading in the toe. I'm not sure if I can recolor it or need to add some oil but regardless I would hope a boot this expensive would be able to hold up for longer than that time. See the image for further explanation.

Width is tight - by , Mar 16, 2020

Width is pretty tight on this shoe. I’m hoping it loosens up over time.

Recently purchased the black 1000 Mile Sneakers and couldn’t be happier. The fit is perfect, look great and I’m sure the Vibram sole will last much longer than other items in this class.

Gift from my brother-in-law. Comfort and fit are good to the bone. Style is congruent with the image I represent.

slightly narrower - by , Oct 29, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
It's a good pair of sneakers but the price is premium. Also the last is slightly narrower than standard D width. But I do like the plain brown leather with the latex appearance of the sole. Also no steel shank makes it a good shoe to wear going through TSA.

The shoes are made of high quality and am really comfortable. But agree with other reviewers that it runs narrow.

This is the second pair of 1000 mile sneakers I have purchased, and I’ll be adding to the collection. The fit is great; they break in like a pair of gloves; and they look great with everything.

Looks nice but Leather has creased after 2 wearings. I am not sure about fit ehich is awkward. The heel doesn’t sit perfectly which i think means it is too big. At the same time it is narrow and tight depending on howRight i tie the laces.

Narrow - by , Oct 16, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
Beautiful boot but not shaped like feet. Very narrow and uncomfortable. I'm not sure why fashion boots have to fit so different from work boots. The hardware, leather, and colors should differentiate them. Instead the quest to make feet squeeze into boots built on lasts that aren't foot shaped and call it fashionable continues.. I love the style and leather of this boot but it simply was one of the most uncomfortable "sneakers" I ever tried on.

Everything about this boot is amazing. I was skeptical at first because most boots are uncomfortable—not these. Buy it. Wear it. Gift it.
