    Cool to be of poor/good quality

    Hello!

    Can we say:

    "These shoes are of poor/good quality?"

    Is "of" necessary in this sentence?

    Thanks a lot

    I'd keep it, even if it's not what the majority of speakers would choose. Please don't consider this opinion anything more than an opinion though.
