K-Swiss The Classic - Men's

The K-Swiss Classic is a versatile choice to match just about any outfit. Made with a full-grain leather upper and a rubber sole, this shoe is durable and stylish. Features a D-ring lacing system for a secure fit, breathable fabric and all-around comfort. It also has a removable insole and Poron® footbed for cushioning. Please note: The White/White 2E shoe ships with a 3E extra wide sticker on the box but was determined to be a 2E width when fit tested.

This is my first experience with K-Swiss. I've been wearing Nike 4E width shoes since I was 18, but I was dissatisfied with the style selection when I went shopping for new shoes this time. It was pretty much the same styles I've been wearing for the past 5 years and I was looking for a change.
With these being only 2E instead of 4E like I usually buy, they are a little more snug than I'm used to. They aren't too tight and feel like they will only get more comfortable after they are broken in.
Now for the cons (both minor). First, the tongue is thinly padded and the outer shell is entirely made of the same stiff material. This combination causes the tongue to wrinkle and crease when I tighten the laces. As a result, I pull the laces as tight as I would like, which causes the shoe to slip on my heel a little while walking. I would prefer slightly more padding on the inside of the tongue or a different clothlike material on the outside so it doesn't crease like it does (though that might compromise the aesthetics of the shoe's design).
The second con is the insole cushion. It doesn't seem to be the same width as the shoe. I don't know a good way to actually describe it. The cushion feels like it is a narrow strip under the middle of my foot and feels like I have to try to balance my foot in the center of the shoe when I walk. It probably doesn't affect my walking or balance much at all, but it just feels uncomfortable. This is easily remedied by the arch support inerts that I wear in all my shoes anyway.
Pros: stylish, easy to clean, comfortable
Cons: gets dirty fast, creases easily

Have loved these shoes since my first pair in 1981. Quality and comfort are great and still made the same way. Kind of an old school cool style to them I think.
Pros: stylish, durable, comfortable, stays clean a long time, eyelet lacing system
