Calvin Klein Conner Oxford Review
Calvin Klein has been making exceptional quality products since 1968, becoming a global lifestyle brand that is a common household name these days. Klein and his business partner, Barry Schwartz, strives to bring customers a clean aesthetic as well as innovative designs. Their products are sold in over a hundred countries worldwide. They are a global powerhouse with no end in sight.
The Conner Oxford derby shoes are just another one of their long line of fabulous footwear. They have a refined style that consumers adore, featuring a pebbled upper with a cap toe and traditional lacing system, fitting right in at the office or most formal events. They, unfortunately, are not the most comfortable and have had some complaints about the lack of underfoot cushioning. The insole that is located inside of them cannot be replaced, so it makes adding one of your own no easy task. Overall, they are not a terrible pair of dress shoes, but there are some better options available.
Available in black and brown
Not available in wide sizes
No arch support
The shoes can offer you a decent amount of ventilation into the foot chamber which will help keep your feet relatively fresh while you are wearing them. This is also going to help keep you slightly dry and work on eliminating some of the odor-causing bacteria that can develop if you are sitting in a wet pair of shoes for too long. The smooth sock liner is made out of synthetic materials that will allow the air to flow freely around your feet, keeping you comfortable all day long.
There is a short one inch stacked heel on the footwear, which is typical for this type of shoe. The stacked heel gives the illusion of layers of rubber stacked on top of each other; hence the name, to provide you with a more aesthetically pleasing look and a classic style.
The derby shoes are available in men's sizes seven through thirteen with half sizes available through size twelve. They are, unfortunately, not sold in wide widths so if that is something that you will require then these are not going to be the right pair for you, and you may want to consider a different option that will better suit your needs.
The positive side of this is that the leather uppers are soft and flexible so you will have a decent amount of comfort in that area of the shoe. You will have the ability to move your feet around freely and unrestricted with each step that you take. They hug your feet and give you a nice and secure feeling that consumers can appreciate.
As for arch support, the lack of a lot of padding underfoot means that there is not a great deal of cushioning under your arches, much to the dismay of many consumers. You cannot even place in any additional inserts thanks to the stationary insole. All and all, customers are disappointed with the lack of support under their arches.
