Dressports 2 Allander
DetailsMarathon tested. Business meeting approved. Rockport's DresSports weigh less than the average running shoe—and they were put to the test in two New York City Marathons to prove the shoes' comfort and durability. Not only does the full-grain leather look professional, it's easy to clean for long-term wear. On the performance side, Strobel® technology on the inside and flex grooves in the outsole provide forefoot flexibility to aid the walking motion. The collection's lightweight, slip-resistant rubber outsole delivers shock absorption while helping to reduce foot and leg fatigue, and moisture-absorbent, odor-resistant cushioning keeps feet dry and comfortable. Added comfort features include a padded tongue and collar to help protect from excessive rubbing and prevent blisters. We've redefined what a dress shoe can be: lighter than a running shoe, as versatile as a cross-trainer, tailored for your daily marathon.
Highly shock-absorbent cushioning protects the heel at impact

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barb from A stylish, comfortable dress shoe I bought these shoes for my husband. They are well made and have a style suitable for business wear or for leasure, walking , etc. The leather upper is nicely finished. This style has a longer than average toe, squared off at the end, so it tends to look and fit a little narrow. If in any doubt, order Wide. This is a very light shoe, with thin lining and sole that isn't heavy, although it appears to be durable (the shoes I ordered have not been worn a long time.) The sole is molded rubber groooved to prevent skids, This is a much better shoe in style and construction than I see in good department stores..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tony from Great all day work and dress shoe I am a doctor working in a busy emergency room and am always on my feet. I was concerned when Rockport went from the Reebok DMX to the Adidas Adiprene and the shoes didn't look as robust as the older ones (I had a pair of DMX plain toes that went for 3 years that I left at my parents, also fantastic#. However I can happily report that they are long lasting and very comfortable. I cannot be too enthusiatic about this shoe. It is very light. It has been worn for the last year alt least 5 days a week for 10-12 hours at a time. And most importantly it still looks very good and has at least another year or two left in it. Finally whilst Rockport has dressier shoes that go better with suits #this can be), this one goes great with slacks or khakis and have used as my sole pair of shoes when travelling for courses and meetings.
