I bought this and a pair of the work boots over the past few weeks. The "leather" is gorgeous and both pairs of footwear are comfortable, if needing a little arch support.
However- and this is a big however- I have worn each pair only once and yet both exhibit wear on the sole to include the peeling off of rubber. I wore my brogues the very first time to work this morning, requiring a total of 10 blocks of walking on concrete sidewalks. And yet, both shoe soles show fraying at the heel and on one shoe a piece of rubber came off. I wore the boots once, two weeks ago, walking a total of a mile in a day, and two treads were shredded on both boots. If this continues, the soles of both pairs of shoes will be destroyed within weeks. I'm not just disappointed, I'm angry and for two reasons: I paid considerable money for these shoes. And, it gives vegan footwear a bad name. I've wanted vegan shoes for a long time, in part to show people that such a choice is viable as the shoes are both beautiful and durable. But only the 1st part is true. This just gives non vegans another reason to dismiss vegan products/non leather shoes as inferior to animal products/ leather shoes. I don't know whether to keep them and let them wear out or go for the hassle of returning them, but I'm never buying products from Wills again and cannot recommend others do.

Love these shoes. They go equally well with jeans and dresses. The No-oxblood colour is versatile too.
Breathable, comfy & stylish.
Would love to see a flatform version in metallic colours…
These are comfortable shoes and a good fit. They have been much admired when it was ok to see people!
Bought these in burgundy, love them! Wore them all day without any rubbing (although with socks). The only gripe, and this will be because of the vegan material, is that the tongue and lace up system is very stiff to adjust, such as if you get the tongue stuck further in the shoe when putting on. Love the self coloured sole. I'd buy the brown but really put off by the white sole.
Amazingly comfortable and stylish!
