Ben Sherman Payton Review
The Ben Sherman company was named after the man who started it all. He was a man who always flocked to the new and the different, always on the search for the unique and best things out there. He had an artistic soul but was a very passionate businessman. These two things blended together, and he created his first product, a shirt. It seems so simple today, but it was a huge hit and put Mr. Sherman’s name on the map. Now, over 50 years later his products are still a big part culture and style.
The Peyton’s are a great pair of casual shoes that were created to not only look great but feel wonderful as well. They may not be the most comfortable sneakers you own, but they are not too bad, many customers have no complaints on the underfoot experience they get when wearing them.
The shoes come in a variety of color and materials so you should have no problems finding something that will best fit your style needs. Be careful; however, some customers mentioned the perf suede options can have some durability issues and can become unwearable after only a couple times out in them. Overall, though, they are pretty good pair of shoes that many customers seem to love.
Great color options
Fits true to size
Some durability issues
Slightly heavier than average
Of course, as with many other pairs of sneakers, if you want more comfort and padding, you can always opt for an additional insole or insert to give you a better feel. Yes, it can sometimes be frustrating to have to buy something else on top of spending money on a new pair of shoes, so if that is not something that you are interested in, then these aren't the right sneakers for you.
When it comes to arch support in the sneakers, it is unclear as to how much they can actually provide. They have a lightly padded insole, so there is some cushioning there, but we do not know for sure how much is there. One thing that can be said about them, though, is that there are no customers complaints about the lack of support under the arches. If you get them and find that they cannot give you what you need or want you can always add some insole that will better work for the shape of your foot.
They do not offer the most versatility, however. If you want a casual sneaker to wear while running errands or hanging out with the guys, then these are going to be a pretty decent option. Sometimes, you might be able to get away with wearing them into the office, if you are wearing more business casual attire. Other than that, they might not work elsewhere. You aren't going to want to be seen with them on the track or at the gym, and they will not fit in at a wedding or other formal event.
