The Men's Cardon Shoe by Patagonia are uber comfy for long trips, not to mention make airports a breeze. Give your carry-on a fighting chance to actually fit into the overhead. The stuffable Cardon has a collapsible upper for easy riding and a dual-density, compression-molded EVA midsole that provides exceptional cushion for long days afoot. The pigskin leather footbed conforms to the foot over time and can be removed to make room for a custom orthotic. A durable hevea-milk latex outsole is stitched to minimize use of solvents and adhesives.

A very comfortbale shoe. As stated througout other reviews, they do lack some arch support, but wearing this is almost like being barefoot. I can wear them to work, out at bars, and just about anywhere else. They go with both jeans and work pants. When I got mine, I sprayed them down with a stain/water repeller (available just about anywhere at shoes store or convenience stores) to try and protect the material a little bit and it seems to be doing the trick- shoes are still clean despite living in a city, commuting, rain, spills, etc.
I bought these shoes because my other patagonia shoes that were similar were stolen while i was on an east coast trip (thanks, East Coast). These shoes are a little more classic in their style. I like them a lot- they slip on and off easily but fit snugly enough once they're on. Probably perfect for those travel days when you have to remove your shoes a few times for TSA at the airports. All in all, they are really nice and comfortable and look like they should last a long time.
