2nd pair of jak's, they're my go to sneakers since they are very comfy and very good looking
Model is great, leather quality is top-notch and the finish of the shoes are great.
Purchased size 46 Mercury Black. Very impressed by the quality of the materials on the shoe. Looking forward to wearing this for work and play.
I live in the U.S. and have not been able to find all black shoes that I like anywhere until I visited Lisbon.
I wanted a good pair of shoes that would last me a long time, would look better than most and is very comfortable.
A lot of "fast fashion" companies nowadays make the mistake of selling cheap goods that you throw away quickly. This generates more "revenue". The mistake they make is that if you produce something that is good and lasts years (if you take care of it), then people would come back for your products. People would simply buy different models. And this is what jak has realised. Consumer trust is way more important than quick cash. Make yourself irreplaceable, rather than usable.
The leather is simply superb. You can see that the shoes are handmade with passion and care - and I have received many compliments from friends and family.
I'm usually between 44 and 43. Jak's return policy allowed me to order both, try them to see which fits best and return the other one. I don't know who built their website and customer service systems, but these guys deserve a promotion. No problems there.
Finally, if you compare with competitors, pricing is hitting the sweet spot. Jak is, in my opinion, the best company for mid-range shoes price/quality-wise.
The shoes do the job. Look superb. Quality materials. Will last you ages. Little of what you pay is spent on marketing. No-bs approach.
That's all from me, hope it helps you in your decision to support this company.
