I have some T-56 leather mids I picked up on a steal, I like them asthetically and slightly more comfortwise than chuck taylors. They're a pretty slim shoe, and fit exactly the same size as my chuck taylors. The only strange thing I've noticed from wearing them is that the soles show slight impressions of my feet... Which I've never had happen before on a rubber sneaker. The soles don't seem to be wearing unually fast either, just literally molding to my foot.
