Eastland shoes are the most comfortable and, although they may cost more at the initial purchase, they are the most economical in the long run. My husband is on his feet walking on concrete all day and these shoes last! You won't regret spending the money for these shoes. Eastland fully guarantees their products also. Once, a soul of the shoe cracked at the ball of the foot. I called Eastland and they had me return the shoes to them and they replaced them, just like that. Shoebuy.com offers them at a great price and the service is excellent.
About This Item
Reliable and durable
The Plainview is a durable, comfortable shoe that is great in dress casual situations or for general work around the house. I own 2 pair - 1 for home repair and maintenance, and 1 for dress casual. I've worn Plainviews on mission trips to Zimbabwe and done a lot of walking in them over rough terrain - incredibly comfortable.
Best Uppers, Worst Soles
I have owned maybe 5 or 6 pairs of these shoes, or more. I love the look of the round toes, and the fact that if the uppers get scuffed against something sharp, the finish doesn't peel off beyond being able to cover it up with shoe polish like many shoes today. These shoes have the best uppers that I have ever worn, but the soles are the worst I have ever had in my entire life. They only last a few months before they crack all the way across the bottom. This last pair only lasted around two or three months. Not only has one shoe cracked from side to side, but chunks are tearing off of the bottom of both shoes like the soles are not much stronger than pencil eraser rubber. And on the left shoe, the support that runs from the heel towards the arch is actually starting to poke through the rubber and ripping the rubber now from back to front. I could tell as soon as I put the shoes on that Eastland had changed the soles, even though they still looked the same. They had a different feel and a different sound as you walked across the floor - a quieter sound. Now I know why. I liked these shoes better than any I have ever owned, but to be honest with you, Eastland would have to GIVE me a new pair every month for me to continue to wear them, because that's about as long as it took for chunks to start tearing out of this last pair. And I have paid as much as $90 for these shoes before. Shoes that cost that much should last for years, not months.
