The quality and fit of this shoe is beyond anything I have ever experienced. I have finicky feet and most shoes fail me as I wear them. It is incredibly rare to find a shoe such as the Mr. Franklin which feels perfect from the moment I first put them on and are comfortable all day. I will love them and keep them forever and yes, they are pricey but the cost per wear will more than justify the price.
One caveat: They are slippery. I put a no-slip sticker on the sole and problem solved.
