So maybe sometimes people get lemons even in the shoe dept? I bought a pair of these about 3-4 years ago for when I do weddings. (I'm a photographer), so comfort is a must for me. I wore them mainly only when I did weddings. But as I got older, and started having foot problems and needed a really good shoe to wear more often, so I started wearing them more. This year, I have worn them pretty much 5 days a week, 6-9 hours on my feet each day, working part time at a gas station, and sometimes climbing on rocks to get a good picture too. They are still in great shape!! I just bought a new pair and the only bad thing I can say about them is that the back of one of them, the part that comes over your heel by the ankle, is a little curved in and rubs my skin. Once they break in they will be fine.

I bought these shoes 7 months ago. Since then, one shoe started falling apart. The other one looks like it will be following soon. The sole is separating from the shoe, and the faux leather is tearing. I would have expected a bit more life out of them.

Best shoes for everyday casual.
By Zeus fan
Comments about safeTstep Men's Zeus Athletic:
The best shoe for everyday anything. Have had several pair of the Zeus shoes over the year and they are very durable and comfortable. They also feature the Saf-T-Step tread. This is the only type of tread I have seen that actually gives you stability in slippery or icy conditions. Well made and never leak. My old pair finally wore out after 2 years of daily wear. Fortunately Payless had the exact same style and I expect similar performance from them.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Way undersized shoe.
from Simi Valley
Tried this shoe along with my regular shoe and another new shoe. This one was ridiculously smaller than the other two. All were size 15W, but these were unwearably narrow, short and lacking height inside the shoe cavity. Could barely squeeze my foot halfway. Two other styles fit just fine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Excellent work shoe
By Local mailman
from Binghamton, NY
As a mailman I rely heavily on shoes to get me through the day. If the shoe doesn't fit comfortably it can really affect my work. I've had this shoe twice now and I can easily say that this shoe stands up to being on your feet all day.
I'd say they're worth it.
They do the job and look pretty good.
Wide Width was not very wide
from Utah County
This wide width shoe was not any wider than the reqular width. Wasted my time.

I really like these shoes and try to buy them but only problem is I'm a woman and need to wear a men's 5 wide and its the size always out of stock. So i wear shoes that are too long so they're wide enough.

I have now bought my husband 6 pairs of these over the last 2 years. within a month the soles start to crack. after he has had them for only 3 months the sole has separated in places from the shoe and the leather on the top is coming apart. I love the price... but $40 for a pair of shoes that only last a month or two is just insane. More often than not, he is wearing shoes with flapping soles and exposed toes for a few months before i can afford to spend money getting him several new pairs (since he goes through them so fast, ordering one pair at a time just isn't feasible).
Merchant response: Hello - Thank you for providing this feedback. We apologize for the issues that your husband has experienced with these shoes and your comments will be forwarded to our Quality Assurance department for further review.

Comfort and Grip..
from Mesa AZ
I just bought my 3rd and 4th pair of these with a BOGO @ 50% offer. I wear these practically every day. This is an extremely comfortable shoe and provides an excellent grip on any surface I've encountered. They are silent. - The upper shoe material cracks and splits where the foot bends when stepping off. Eventually the upper shoe material also begins to separate from that same area to the toe. I wear them anyway as the appearance is not that important to me. I consider these completely shot at about 10 months of wear. By then they are literally used up. If this works for you I'll again emphasize their comfort and exceptional grip. God bless..
