World Tour Men's Classic
not as good as the old ones
I had a pair of these years ago and they were a great shoe. really comfortable, great quality, all that good stuff. so i decided to buy another pair but i guess the old saying goes, they dont make things like they use to, is right. this new pair is all but like the older ones. i try not to say anything at all if its going to be bad and with that all i will say is this. wish i wouldnt have bought them.

Sadly disapointed with shoe.
I have purchased this exact shoe for over 10 years for work and now, after this last pair I will have to find another brand...the insole had to be replaced the minute I got the shoes because they were paper thin...I noticed the Quality of materials in the last couple of pairs I got were going downhill...this one is the last pair I will waste my money on.

Never buy shoes oline.
I like a lot "world tours men's classic" model and wear that type for the last 10 years at least. I also like this particular model I bought with leather not polished, but looks like suede, chamois. I also always have hard time to find a good fit for my feet, because of wide. So this year I decide to take a risk and bought my favorite not in the store but online. I knew I am gambling a bit, but because my enormous (and as I know now simply hypertrophied) trust in Rockport I bet $150 and lost. So when I got on Rockport page I found only sole pair of shoes (model x size x wide) I wanted left. That was one another red flag , which I sadly ignored. Anyway I have bought them and FEDEX did great job of delivery in time. When I open package I seen that Rockport box looks a bit beaten, but what the hack, right? I am not going to wear shoe box around anyway. So I put shoes on they perfectly fit my length/width wise feet. So next day I walked in them around, and found that while one shoe was really perfect old good Rockport, and my foot feels as good as it could, not that happy story for other foot. I don't know what is that a totally random defect of the soul of the shoe or not perfectly located arc support elevation. Or because ark area of the foot itself feels nice, I would guess that Rockport shoes have another minor elevation to support phalanges, and that particular elevation have a little shift in my shoe, such as it pressing now against sesamoid bones.
This is entire story. One more time ---
1) I shouldn't buy shoes online - you should neither.
2) I should test them more extensively in home and return next day. -- BUT I don't have time. I also wonted out of my winter shoes asap.

This is my 3rd or 4th pair of World Tour. The shoe fits great. Occasionally have a brief break-in period, but they are easily the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.
