I've had these shoes for about a year and a half now, along with a pair of primal2 I wear them every other day. They have both held up very very well for me. I used to wear our my shoes quickly, but with shoes that allow for natural foot movement that doesn't seem to happen. They show signs of wear for sure, but still got plenty of life left in them.
The nine2five are a little more snug than the printe primals and unfortunately after wearing correctors for the same amount of time my nine2fives have started to become uncomfortably snug across the toes.
That's of no fault of the show though of course, just an unfortunate reality.
I have had the same pair of 9to5 for 2 years. The shoes are still in good condition. I walk during lunch. The only complaint like most people are the shoe laces. Lems needs to address that issue or maybe make one without laces.
I am an airline pilot who was having a ton of back pain from my regular black shoes I was wearing around. After switching to the zero heel drop 9to5 my back pain went away instantly. I love these shoes! I run up and down any air stairs or jetway. I walk the terminals back and forth every time we land just because they are so comfy. The ONLY complaint I have is with the laces. They are falling apart. However, as far as the shoe goes it is working fantastic. This is my first winter in them since I bought them about 7 months ago but so far the rain hasn't effected them. I completely recommend them as a work shoe. (On a side note, they look goofy when you first buy them. Give them a little wear in so they don't look so squeaky clean and they blend right in with your black pants)
Tired of cramming your foot into an uncomfortable dress shoe everyday for work? Treat yourself to a pair (or two; I have the brown too) of these and your feet will thank you!
The 9-5's are easily the most comfortable, best fitting shoe i have ever worn- I wear my black pair for work, etc. and recently bought a second pair, coffee 'n cream, for more casual settings. I'm hoping lems starts offering Primals in my size 48.
