Yes, I like them well enough, and consider them worth the $30 I paid. Found mine as deadstock closeout in an old, old men's shoe store. I'm not certain how old they are, though -- probably not that old. They're no EGs (or even AEs), and they're not shoes for a lifetime, but if you can get 'em cheap, they're welted and have held up pretty well. I just liked the quirky design.
Sizing seems pretty true, maybe a bit small. Hard for me to comment, though, because I went up a size but down a width. My pair is very comfortable.
Here's a pic of mine after several dozen wears:
