Rated 5 out of 5 by Denny from Smart Professional/Casual/Adventure I read that this was a Boston company and when I got my Maddox (Black/Shadow) it made sense why. I have been looking for months for a shoe that I can wear to the office in a casual attire, but also able to walk around the city in. Living in the Northeast an all-around weather shoe was something that is much needed. The shoes are completely comfortable and so far I have experienced them in sun, rain, and snow-all in one day! I wear a 10 but got a 9.5 which fit great. Overall awesome shoe! I hope they continue to make them and in different colors. This is the perfect Boston/Northeast shoe for work and play!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Robitrice from Better than expected I own several pair of forsakes, this is my 4th pair. With the warmer weather approaching and needing a better option for warm weather walking/hiking I researched the Maddox. i needed a light weight, breathable and comfortable shoe. These fit the bill so I bought them. First time wearing then, right out if the box, hiked Mt. Moosilaukee, 4800ft and 8miles later I can say these were exactly what I was looking for. Very breathable, zero issues with sweat (60-70 degree day) summit was low 40s. I did order a full size smaller than my regular size and they fit just right. They are very light which was a bug plus! Highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by coolhandluke from Lightweight, perfect travel shoe I've been using this shoe for the past six months with great results - it's my go-to travel shoe. While this one isn't waterproof like other Forsake styles, it is super breathable and has been well-suited to the warm weather. One note - my pair runs quite large (a full size). I usually wear size-11 in Forsakes and I've been rocking 10s in the Maddox.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nate from Comfortable immediately! Perfect for trecking all over town. Met up with buddies in Austin and walked all over the city for a few days. We even threw in a small hike and they were perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Findingoutdoors from I am Forsake fan but these missed the mark I find that the maddox missed the mark. I used them for travel shoes and as well a couple day music festival. I found them to very uncomfortable and run way to big. I did end up sending them back for another smaller size but still didn't fit quite right. They don't offer much support through out the whole shoe. My feet would be hurting at the end of the day or a few hours. I am big fan of Forsake classic shoes but these shoes just don't add up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnny from A hard working good looking shoe I bought this shoe a few weeks ago to replace my mountain biking shoes and my daily footwear. I’m very impressed with what I got! Comfy, stylish, moisture wicking. I took them on a bike ride and had great grip on my bike pedals. I went golfing, and left with dry feet even with some rain mixed into the forecast. I went hiking in Colorado on dry and snowy days and didn’t feel underprepared. Took them fishing and even standing on a rocky patch in the middle of the river I didn’t leave with soggy feet. Super impressed with the purchase 10/10 would buy again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonathanH from Great lightweight option These are exactly what I was looking for. Lightweight and breathable enough to be a great everyday shoe, but still far more robust than your average runner or trainer, which is good because I’m not very kind to my shoes. No pressure points to speak of, and quick to get on and off due to the well-placed neoprene at the collar. Runs just slightly large. I’m usually an 11, sometimes a 10.5, and in these I definitely wanted the 10.5.

Rated 3 out of 5 by vmario from Good idea Love Forsake boots but haven’t had luck with the shoes. Not as comfortable as I imagined. Fit was off.
