The leather seems durable and looks great. The shoe fits well and is very comfortable with a bit of arch support. Properly, my feet are an 8 1/2 D. I got a 9 and the fit is great. I would definitely recommend ordering up if at the half size.
The quality control could be a little better. On the right shoe left side where the tongue meets the stitching, there is a small gap where the cut back too much on the leather.
