Love the shoes for the most part, the complaint is these are supposed to be wides and they don’t feel like wides. They are very similar to the regular sizing and fit
Probably the best all around shoe I've bought. I'm hard on footwear and these have held up longer than most name brands. I'll be buying the Mod 1's next.
If you feet are on the wider side definitely order the wides. Thank you Woobies for a great product.
Fit narrower than expected. I have an average width foot and am not over weight. That makes it mildly uncomfortable
VERY Tight....needing an extended break in period. USING stretcher to get them to fit..A wide shoe they are not...
Still love the look and only wish the sizing for wide was true. They should break in ok..just not as quick as I would like.
Based on the reviews, I went for the wide in the Mod2. This is the first time I have ever bought a wide shoe, and they were still narrow. Due to the holidays and etc. by the time I realized they were too narrow it was beyond the 30 days. The shoes are not marked for size or width in any way (no tag or anything sown in), just a sticker on the tongue so I'm not convinced they were actually the wides. I tried a shoe stretcher, and it has helped some. Hopefully with the combination of normal break in and the shoe stretcher in the off hours they will be wearable. The good of the shoe is that they appear to be well made, and the material is very comfortable.
My son loves everything about his shoes; unusual for a teen! He said they're very sturdy and comfortable. Specifically, he really likes the footbed and says "it's like they hug my feet.".
Got wides and glad I did. I wear a 13m and these shoes are narrow. I’d say more narrow than chuck taylors. I wear chucks, vans and my duty shoe is the Altima maritime assualt boot. Wanted these because they seemed like a good mix of my duty shoe and civi shoe. I wish they had more tread like my Altima. Climbing on a ladder with no lugs gets a little sketchy. The material and fit and finish was decent(time will tell) but the rubber on the front slutty peeled off after one range day. The kneeling position seemed to do that to it. As far as overall style I wish the Toe box was wider. My feet start to cramp after a while. I find it strange that these are marketed as a tactical shoe and able to hike the pct. I would not wear these for duty. And I def would be caught hiking with these. Overall I’m glad I got these on sale with mil discount because they are nowhere near the price asked. Now if they widened toe box, added some minor lugs or grip on bottom and lowered price I’d say these are winners, but then again I might just buy altimas instead.
Had to go up half a size, but once I did, I found the best fitting shoes I've ever worn. These things will cope with anything. Truly great shoe!
Pretty good. They look fly and the slip resistance is ideal for bar work. The heel strap tore off in the first week and the eyelet grates are falling off, but those aren't really deal breakers for me. Haven't put in too much mileage yet but would probably buy again as work and out-on-the-town shoes at this rate.
I love these! Definitely get the wide if you have remotely wide feet. I wear a 13 regular in converse and my wide Woobies are about the same width.
I originally purchased them to replace my monochrome black Converse high tops that are expensive and always falling apart. . The Woobies are more formal looking though, and quite sturdy.
In terms of office dress code, I’d say the all black high tops could flex between casual and business casual. Can’t wait till the all gray ones are back in stock!
Great shoe. Great quuality. Not as "wide" as I hoped.
Really not that wide. Bought for my husband and he has only worn twice because they caused blisters and he's waitinggor yhem to heal before he tries to break them in some more. Should have listened to the reviews mentioning how they weren't wide. He has MOD-1s (they are a few years old) and I think the width is the same...before they made "wide" shoes.
I ordered wides and still feel a bit slim. They fit me fine but I feel like that might trip up someone with wIder feet
The shoes are great however they do require a slight brake in period. With that being said this is my second pair and both have exceeded my expectations with regard to comfort and durability.
The wide fit pretty much like regular width in other brands. I had a pair of the regular width mod 1s and they never got comfortable because they were so narrow.
I also replaced the insole with a superset green and that helped a lot, I would now confidently recommend woobies. Quality is good and they look great!
Good evening, I'm Chris and I am a yard checker. I walk between 9 to 15 miles a night. They are one of the best shoes. The only issue with them is a winter version. I enjoy them and I try to walk my feet through the sole.
Bought some MOD 1’s a while back and they felt very narrow and tight. These wide MOD 2 made a big difference
Okay first, sizing - these are *narrow* for size, IMO. I generally take a 13 regular, and reading reviews that advised to buy a size up for width, I was delighted to see them bring out wide sizes - just when I was shopping for new boots!
So I bought 13 wide . . . And they fit . . . BUT they were pretty damn tight across the ball of my foot, so much so that I briefly considered returning them. But I liked them and decided to give them a day or so. So, I’m maybe two weeks in (and I work from home so this is not daily wear) and already they’re loosening up and each time I wear them they’re more forgiving, so I think they’ll break in and be comfortable in the end.
Looks like the Classic Converse Chucks, but don’t feel like them - sole is thicker, noticeably so, but not so thick that it feels like a combat boot; very nice compromise thickness. Heavy canvas uppers and a nice sturdy pull tab on the back *really* helps pull them on without fearing that I’m going to pull out the tab. Laces could be a tad longer but are long enough.
Very comfortable (excepting for the narrowness I already covered, which is reducing).
I’m happy with them, pending the anticipated break in, which, if it continues to go well I will be super pleased. Excellent quality and I expect excellent durability. I had GoRuck boots before and they lasted like 6 years before needing replacement, so that’s the bar. Thus far I feel good about the boot/shoes going the distance.
The shoes arrived relatively quickly after purchase. I normally don't find the waterproof insoles comfortable but these are working out pretty good. For a "wide" they are still slightly snug in the sides but not uncomfortable. Fantastic everyday shoe.
These mod 2s in wide feel tighter than the mod 1s in wide.
