With the current sale on a BB, I am considering purchasing a pair of the Classic Bucks in Tan. Does anybody have any experience with them and can offer a short review? I am considering them as 1) They seem to be more supportive and sturdy than the current Bass Buck I'm wearing (really break down in support after just a few wears) and 2) The color is a lighter Tan that is in between a White Buck and the Bass Buck Tan (just sent my White Bucks to charity, just don't like the look on me).
As always, thanks.
My BB bucks are from 6 or 7 years ago, so they might have changed manufactures. They are very sturdy - a meaningfully more substantial shoe than Bass. They have held up for years to reasonably regular wear - well worth the extra money as they'll cost less in the long run as, as you note, they'll hold up so much longer than the Bass ones.
They almost feel more like dress-shoes like than casual bucks as they did take a bit to break in, but again, for the reasons noted, worth it in the end. I can't tell from the pic on BB's site - they look similar - but BB changes its manufacturers so often, that I can't say if those are the same as mine. I just don't want to give you bad color.
It's funny, in response to your post, I looked on BBs site, and I don't see the tan one your reference - only white, navy and dark brown.
