I have been wearing Florsheim shoes for a really long time. Usually, they last about a year if you wear them on a daily basis. I usually buy them when they have a 2 pairs for a hundred dollars sale. They also sell them at Macys and other department stores, but they sometimes charge more (unless you buy them on clearance). The store in the mall has a good selection of shoes. Id recommend the rubber ones not the wood bottom. Wood bottoms get scratched up.
