Love em because they feel like flip flops on your feet but give that "I mean business" appearance (e.g. I wore mine to a wedding). Super light weight, comfortably soft, and an excellent choice if you are traveling. Unlike real dress shoes, the leather on these is very soft, so stuffing them into your bag will not ruin them. The outer edge of mine starting ripping after only 3 wears...nothing that a little super glue can't handle but still you would think for the price this wouldn't be an issue. Hence the 4 stars.
