Black Brand Deceptor Shoes
- Reinforced sole for support
- D3O® insole
- Vulcanized rubber sole
- Hipora® waterproof barrier
- Reinforced toe cups and ankles
We tried on a selection of sizes and found the length to be about right, so we suggest you choose the size you normally wear in men’s street shoes. The footbed width is “medium” or D/E width.
We did find the instep area to be snug. If you have an average or lower instep, these should work OK, but if you have a high instep, they’ll likely be too tight in that area.
Our Two Cents
I’ll have to give these Deceptor shoes a mixed review. The shoes are sharp and the overall build quality is OK. I also like the use of the D3O insole which is a premium feature. But on the downside, the issue with fit through the instep is pretty pronounced. And I find the sole of the shoes to not be reinforced but rather they are easy to bend like a simple sneaker. Also, the integral ankle armor is positioned an inch or so back from where it should be. :: Paul, 04-03-18
