I have to wear orthotics for life, and these shoes are orthotics friendly. I wear them on daily basis along with suits. They are not the most elegant shoes but the most comfortable I have used. I have these shoes treated with black shoe polish paste and polish them every tree weeks and the leather keeps looking as good as new. I have owned a pair for 2 years and I had to change them due to not uniform light sole wear (caused by a foot condition) but the leather still looks as good as new.
BTW I suffer from high arch (known as pes cavus or supinated feet) since childhood. After turning 25 and gaining weight this condition has contributed to lower back pain and sometimes plantar fasciitis (heel pain). To reduce these inconveniences, I have to wear orthotics for life, and I have irregular sole wear and finding a dress shoe that is friendly with orthotics it’s no easy task.
Hope this review helps people with same conditions. Beware, orthotic should be prescribed by a specialist. These shoes don’t replace orthotic inlays, just are friendly with them.
One of the first things I noticed after walking in them for a few minutes was how light they felt. So I went to my office at home and put them on the scale. My old shoes measured at 397 grams each. The new Rockports came in at a svelte 270 grams each. After walking in them the last few days, I can can attest that the reduced weight is noticeable.
I can't speak to how they hold up after a long period of time, but I will try to give an update six months to a year from now. However, if you are in the market for a classically stylish and comfortable dress shoe to wear to work everyday, you should definitely consider purchasing this shoe. Very happy with my purchase.
Update (May 29, 2019): It has been more than two years since I purchased these shoes and they are holding up very well. They have a few scuffs in the toe area but that's to be expected after near daily use for 2+ years. I will definitely buy these shoes again.
They are extremely light but still provide good support and are very comfortable.
The shoes also appear to be airport safe (or, more precisely, Court safe) and look good.
My only gripe is the shoelaces are made from a slightly slick material so don't bind well when tied (they just keep slipping undone).
Otherwise, these are great shoes.
