Great shoes, super comfortable, feel very sturdy underfoot and look great! Haven't put them through heavy use yet but they seem like they will hold up well on initial appearance. The only thing I would recommend is consideration for the shape of your foot: not all shoes will fit all feet well, and the last on these shoes is fairly narrow. I sized up a half size and can get into them easily, they are comfortable, but are pretty snug on either side of the ball of my foot. My experience with canvas shoes on a narrower last for my wide foot is that they tend to break down in the area where that strain is highest, which may shorten the lifetime of the shoe depending on how well they can break in and relax around that area.
