I have several different patterns of this shoe. I have loved them for more than a couple of years now. My only complaints are that they make your feet sweat and smell, also, they wear out fast if you use them a lot. Also, this pattern specifically is difficult to keep clean. I find that I only wear them when i will be indoors, and not walking around a lot. the comfort level is as good as with any loafer or boat shoe, and support is better than a sperry slider. great shoes, just don't wear when around mud or snow.
