I absolutely love these shoes. I purchased them almost a year ago and have been very impressed by how they have held up so far. There is very little wear on the heel (a frequent problem for me with shoes!) and the leather appears to be of a very good quality. I love the contrast of the red laces and red trim, and I always receive compliments on them. For me, they are the perfect everyday shoe. My next shoes will definitely be from Justin Reece.
