American Bison Drivers
Deserves to be a long term core item. Don't be put off by the bison leather -- this, and its handsome design, are the best features. The bison leather is tough in that it is stain resistant (vastly better than suede), comfortable and cool. The only downside is the sole is not durable. I am now on my third or fourth pair and the reasonable price offsets the lifespan.
I have found the sizing to be accurate. Perhaps the issue is that it comes in only one width.
BB only orders these in the summer and last year re-ordered (online only) in December. The December order sold out of the key sizes in two weeks. Perhaps the buyer will take note.

Soft and Comfortable
I ordered a pair of these for myself and liked them so well I ordered another pair for our son who lives in California. While they are "driving shoes" they look and feel so good you will wear them casually in dry weather as well. It will be interesting to see how they hold up for occasional outside use. Brooks Brothers is a wonderful company to do business with, very helpful, and they go the extra mile to exceed satisfaction.

Best driver shoes ever!
I'm a non american guy, so that I never had the occasion to wear anything done with bison leather. I don't know why, I imagined this material as 'hard', well ...NOT AT ALL.
This are the most soft shoes I ever had in my life.
I do not wear any other pair of shoes during summer since this discovery and my wife followed me delighted by that soft feeling and stylish look.
I buy 1/2 size smaller then my usual size.

Read the Reviews
This shoe is very comfortable. Before purchasing I read all the reviews - I'm glad I did. Normally I wear a 10 and ordered them in a 9.5. - sizes run small. They feel great to walk in and are nice to wear on a long drive.
I purchased them in blue and red; both colors appear a bit darker when compared to the picture on the site, but still look great.
This shoe can be worn hanging out on the weekend or during the work week. Glad I made the purchase.
