Adventures with Phil Mid
Rugged, meet handsome. The Phil Mid brings waterproof/breathable performance and premium full grain leathers to a classic yet versatile style.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swaz from Surprisingly lightweight The shoes are nice quality, laces feel strong, materials are nicely assembled. The only thing that's a little weird with these is that the tongue bulges out a bit in the middle. Other than that they are super comfortable and light. The insert they come with has pretty nice padding. I can't speak to how they hold up against water yet, the bottom doesn't look like it will have aggressive traction but I'm treating this as an everyday walking shoe. As far as sizing I chose my typical size despite the size chart. To me, the sizing feels similar to a Nike shoes, at least in my size. The 9.5 worked well for me. My measurement is 27.5 cm and I do have a slightly narrower foot as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by matt from Measured my foot, shoes still didn't fit I bought these shoes and saw they had a sizing chart. I took out a ruler and measured my foot and bought the corresponding boots. When I received them I thought they looked great. But the size was wrong. The shoe was larger than needed, and was very narrow. I wanted to return the boots for a smaller size, but realized that if these felt narrow a smaller size boot would feel even worse. So I simply returned them. The return cost me $10 from the company and that cost to ship it back, but the process was really smooth. I am bummed these didn't work out, because I thought they were a great looking boot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jonathan from Great boot for everyday use I've been searching for a leather boot that's skates the line between casual and dressy for a while now. They either come across as a hiking or very rugged boot, or slim very dressy boot. These Phil Mid's are the perfect balance, they are stylish enough to dress up with but also casual enough to wear around on the weekends. These are extremely comfortable and I've been loving them so far. A note about the fit. They seem very true to size but they do feel a little narrow, I have wider feet so they are a bit snug at the toe box. Not terribly uncomfortable but just a little snug.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stan from Great shoes, but the sizing is off for wide feet. I ordered a pair of Phil Mids size 9 online, without having an opportunity to try them on. I loved the looks and quality of those, but the sizing was a bit off for my wide feet. I regularly wear size 9, however Phil Mids size 9 were too long for my feet yet too narrow on the toe cap side. I guess size 8.5 would fit fine if they were just a bit wider on the front. I had to return them and will be ordering a different model instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hazen from Great Work/Dress Shoe I bought these Phil Mids in Black 6 months ago as a work shoe and have absolutely loved them. They're well made, durable, and classy for restaurant work, with the added benefit of being waterproof for the inevitable drops and spills and snowy walks to the truck during winters. Comfort is also a must when you're on your feet hustling for 6-8 hours, and these deliver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wrangley24 from Love these Boots! I'm not a big review person but I wanted to say how much I'm enjoying my Phil Mid after a month of use. I use the boots mostly for travel and urban commuting and they are absurdly comfy. My travels take me from the mountains to the street and I recently was in Seattle in terribly wet conditions and my feet stayed bone dry. The great thing about the boots is they feel like you are wearing a sneaker but you get the protection of a boot. I'm a size 13 and found that they run true to size. Love the boots, keep up the good work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewDad from Many compliments I’ve only worn the sneaker boots 3 times, but for the most part the look and fit great. I went a half size large because many reviewers mentioned their toes were cramped and I’m glad I did. They’re comfortable around the ankles and lace up real tight. I’ve gotten compliments at work about my new kicks from a few people...but I don’t buy many new pairs of shoes besides athletic sneakers so these stand out. My only complaint and the reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that when I walk the shoe creases and puts point pressure on the top of my foot just above my toes. I’m hoping this will go away after wearing them for a while, but at this point it’s an annoyance because I can’t wear them everyday or I’ll end up with a bruise.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jerrbear from Nice appearance but they need more sizes I just received these and they're way too narrow compared to other shoes. Also, the heels are a bit short, and the shoe strings are too long. Other than that, they look nice.
