Mezlan shoes? Opinions? - Page 2

post #16 of 18

I've found Mezlan to be stylish beyond AE, Hugo Boss and Santoni. It all depends on what your intended purpose is for the shoe. Are you wearing them daily for work, travel, or Sunday church only? I've found Mezlan to be a GREAT special occasion shoe as the comfortability is ever present for the duration. The exotics exude head-turning swagger. Their styling and overall appeal stand head and shoulders above the competition.

That sounds unbiased.

Hi.  This is my first post here, but I've been lurking and listening for years. :)  

 

I have two pairs of Mezlans and have been really happy with them.  The ones in the photo are 4 years old.  I wear them about 1-2x per week usually in an urban environment (Washington, DC). And they are holding up great.  I just had rubber soles put on them as i never liked the leather sole - too slippery on concrete/pavement in the weather.  I'm 6'3" and about 240lbs and wear a size 12.

As someone else mentioned, the leather is lighter than others - feels like about half the thickness of my Allen-Edmonds, but I actually appreciate that as these shoes are VERY lightweight and comfortable and while I was concerned that they would wear out quickly, for me this has proven not to be the case.  Admittedly, there are many Mezlans that have styling that doesn't appeal to me (that's true for me with A-E and Alden as well), but there are a number that I think are quite beautiful, and these are no exception.  I have gotten many many compliments from both men and women about them, and don't regret purchasing them at all.  My other pair is a black, split toe.  Don't remember the names of either model.
