My wife thinks they make me look like Aquaman in a suit but also with lumberjack vibes and she can’t stay away from me, man. I’m talking zero resistance! 10 out of 10 will be wearing these again.

Excellent Craftmanship

Fantastic shoes. Recommend you order a half size down as the leather will stretch out a little as these get worn. I'm impressed by how comfortable these are.
