I'm impressed with the materials and build quality of this shoe. The detail in the stitching brings out the craftsmanship. The sole is stacked leather in the toe area and in the heal stack and textured rubber under the ball and on the bottom of the heal, which means you get great traction when its wet but the toe never grabs and causes you to trip. Overall very impressed, although they do look a little like cowboy boots.
Nice looking oxford with the extra stitching on the toe and sides. Great construction and leather, albeit a bit stiff. Frye sizing is a bit weird, and usually runs a half to whole size large. I found the 10s too sloppy, but the 9 1/2s too tight around the midsection. A loud, heavy walk as well. I would have kept them if they fit comfortably though.
