My favorite feature is the elastic laces. When I finally had to purchase “real” work shoes about 8 years ago, I vowed that the only business or casual shoes I would wear would be slip-on – I was done with laces! Obviously, I disregarded this decree a few times over the years, but I still fall on the side of preferring to go lace-less. The elastic laces provide a snug fit and make the shoes essentially slip on, while still showcasing that nice laced look. I didn’t anticipate liking it, but I couldn’t be more happy with those laces.
Obviously, it’s easy to see the style in the Foris’ (for an extremely reasonable price), but the real understated takeaway has the comfort that these provide. As expected, most dress and casual shoes, aren’t always the most comfortable. They look good, but that is sometimes where the focus stops. Some other reviews sate that the elastic laces became too tight on the padded tongue, but I did not have this issue at all. In fact, I almost felt that the shoes got more comfortable as time went on. I have also been careful not to expose these to the elements too much, but I hope that they clean up well as the weather takes a turn. I won’t be exposing them to rainstorms (I hope), but fingers crossed that they stay clean if so!
Overall, I think these are great for fashion-forward and active men. With runners, our feet are probably our most important asset, so we might as well keep them comfortable in all settings, right?! I’d wear running shoes all the time if I could, but these will do the trick during my work week.
