I had high hopes the Durea Sammi would become my new walking shoe (I need something that will hold up to my 5 mile daily walks). I tried an 11.5 but it was a tad too short so I bumped up to a 12, but the heel was too wide and I walked out of the shoe. This is not a new problem for me, having always had long, narrow feet (I usually wear an 11 or 11.5 AA). About the Durea--the good news is they MAKE 11.5's and 12's. I will keep trying as these seem to be very well-made, high quality shoes though the Sammi style didn't fit my always hard-to-fit feet.
Superior style, comfort and quality. I needed a comfortable but stylish shoe. The toe box is generous but doesn't look clunky and the heel is narrow enough to hug the heel. I'm wearing them out to lunch today.
I have weak ankles, walk a lot, needed stability and comfort, these shoes provide very good support for the ankles, are so well made that I have been able to extend the amount of time I am on my feet. I do wear socks with these shoes.
Time has only increased the comfort as the leather has softened yet maintained the support and form. The quality and comfort that continues after wearing these every day for 8 or more hours for the past year are the reason why I purchased a second pair in black. The shoes show minimal wear on the sole only.
My only issue is that both the brown and black leather are gradient colors, not solid.
