When I started talking to JShoes, I knew they would be a fantastic fit for my wife to review. She has still been sporting her shoes since the review after agonizing over WHICH of their shoes she would review. I don’t dress as classy as Tim. I needed something that could fit my casual wear and that I could pull off. JShoes has several good options and I actually have two different pairs from them to review, but I thought I would start with my personal favorite and my NEW everyday shoe.
You read that right. Sometimes we review items and while we may like them, they don’t find their way into our everyday use. These shoes accomplished that. Call me lazy, but I don’t really care for tying shoes. Or worse, having to re-tie a shoe. One day I realized, I am grown man and if I want to wear shoes that don’t have laces all the time like a child, I can do that. The website describes these shoes as “mocassins for a crisp everyday look.” Which is actually perfect. They are right balance of casual and professional. With the canvas top, they look classy, and others around you won’t be able to tell how comforable you are in the shoe.
I tend to wear them with jeans, but you can wear them with shorts as well. They work so well because you can just slip them on and go on your way. I get compliments on them all the time. Especially because they have a unique sole made of crepe. Which has this kind of yellow look which the side of the shoe will keep and give it that cool look, but obviously the bottom will turn black when you use them everyday (it does make contact with the ground obviously).
So far, despite the fact that I have worn these everyday and I am ridiculous hard on shoes, the have held up really well. I am hoping they last for awhile because as of right now these shoes are on immediately replace next to my iPhone, car, and Complete Season of Firefly.
-Maybe a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for!
