The product seems fine - probably would provide long term satisfaction. However, I have not been able to solve the mystery of sizes. The numbers and letters do not bear any resemblance to those of Florsheim shoes I have purchased in years past. Two attempts at buying shoes have shown me that "trying on" shoes is still the only way to determine the right fit. The problem lies in the process of taking two weeks to find out if a shoe will fit and returning it for another try. Maybe the answer would be to receive several sizes at once and keeping only the one that fits. Of course that won't work either unless the the size is represented in the styles being offered. Could this be a matter of the country of manufacture?
