I bought a pair of these somewhere else and they're nice stylish looking loafers but they have a huge problem. This particular brand, as well as Adolfo and other cheap brands are produced in China and as a result the companies are trying to produce the cheapest shoe as possible to maximize their profit. I normally don't mind when products are made in china as long as the materials used are adequate. For this model of shoes and every other shoe that is produced the same way, what they do is save on the rubber for the heel part of the sole and what you get is a plastic heel with only a 1/4" or less of the rubber. As a result the rubber wears out and you end up with plastic heel making you sound like a woman on high heels. This for me makes the shoes useless after about 2 months while the rest of the shoe is still in a great shape.
