    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Classic Fit

    Most people consider a “classic” fit to be a “standard” fit. This fit more closely aligns with the natural shape of your feet.

    Southside Plain-toe Casual Blucher is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best pair of shoes EVER I read the other reviews and was hesitant to get these, but I am so glad I did. Here is what I gather - If you drag your feet or walk like a sluggard you might not like these shoes as the sole is a little "tacky". If you have 1970's shag carpet you might not like these because a very very small amount of fuzz might stick to the side of the sole. A very big "might". I work everywhere and have to fly weekly I don't see much shag carpet and am always in a hurry so I pick up my feet while walking. I'm 54 years old and outside of a pair of Danner combat boots I got back in '01 these are the best shoes I think I have ever slipped my feet into. I love them fit and feel better than seekers. These are defiantly a buy now shoe. Because of the mediocre reviews I bet they discontinue this shoe, I'm going to get a second pair before they do.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent casual choice I saw these on the F2 page during the extra 20% off and decided to take the plunge. The leather is super soft and they are extremely comfortable! I was apprehensive but after a few wears I’d have paid full price. There has been some discussion about the sole being sticky. It is not your typical sole but I believe it lends to the comfort aspect and are very easy to clean. I really like these shoes and they are now in my regular casual rotation. They fit a little looser than the dress shoe’s.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality casual shoe Great shoe that can be worn with jeans or casual dress pants. Very comfortable to walk in all day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent shoe! I was unsure whether I would like the sole used in this shoe as others complained about how much debris it picks up or that it smells. I found neither to be true. The gum rubber is very soft, and your step is quiet when you walk in these. None of that loud heel tapping that you get from a formal Oxford. The quality and texture of the leather is superb. Within 2 days of wearing them around the house and walking a mile in them the leather had stretched, and they are really enjoyable to wear. I love wearing these on a Friday with jeans because they look almost boot like. These shoes set themselves apart from other semi-casual dress shoes. I have been wearing these shoes about 3 days a week for the past month and I am pleased with my purchase.

    But can the Southside be resoled, if not "recrafted"?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    This sole is on the Chukka version and in one of the forums someone swapped a daneite sole onto it. So while it may not be recraftable it is certainly able to be resoled

    How does it look on a doctor?

    does it look professional enough and has a good support?
    Asked by: Drk
    The Southside is considered a casual shoe, if you want it to be more formal you may be able to dress it up somewhat with dark wash jeans. We recommend taking a look at the Badlands it's one of our comfort styles with a cork layer insole that conforms to the shape of your feet and a cushioned and durable rubber sole. We recommend visiting one of our retail locations where you can try on our shoes and an associate will be able to help you find a style that better suits your needs. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

    Kind of weird I'm asking as usually part of product description, but which last is this on?

    Asked by: EBQ
    This style is handcrafted in Italy and it's not made on our traditional lasts. However, you can expect a fit with a wider forefoot for more room up front and a higher toe box for added volume and comfort. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
