These are not good shoes. The bottoms are slick and they feel like cheap shoes but they are not. They look ok but that is about it.

Ironically, I bought these shoes because the brown version was so comfortable. After wearing these for a few days, I noticed that the front part of the left shoe was digging into my foot as I walked (where the leather bends). In the following days it became so unbearable that I couldn't wear them at all. Complete disappointment!

I ordered these for my fussy husband who doesn't like fancy dress shoes, and hates to have his feet feel confined. He has an average width foot, but we ordered both the regular and wide sizes, and the wide was much better for comfort. This shoe is a great compromise between casual and dressy for those who don't get out of their sneakers very often.

This shoe has a handsome traditional appearance. However, it is much smaller and tighter than the size indicates. I tried stretching the shoes several times, but they still hurt very much when I wear them. Because I stretched them and no longer have the packaging materials, I could not return them. But the purchase of these fairly expensive shoes was a waste of my money. I will not be wearing them.

Beautiful shoe but I find it runs large. Every shoe I own is 8.5 Wide. I ordered an 8.5 Wide but too big. I returned for an 8 Wide, still too big. I am in the process of returning it for a 7.5 wide now. Ugh, but thanks to Zappos for great customer care!

Classy shoe with real leather, easily touched up with black shoe polish. Comfortable and fits well in a world full of synthetics and plastic.

A very comfortable, sleek shoe. Those who value a professional looking slip-on shoe ought look no further. It would be even sleeker if the toe were more of a point than a square, but this is a matter of personal preference.

The shoes run long. I ordered 9.5 regular width shoes. When I tried them on there was extra room in the front. I wound up exchanging them for a 9 wide width and they fit perfect. Also the color variation on the 9.5 pair I received was way off compared the color in the picture. The color was a light tan as opposed to the nice brown you see in the picture. The size 9 color was much closer to the color in the picture.

Love these shoes. Great fit for wide feet. They look great and you can wear them with a suit or jeans. Only downside is the sole is rigid and not much padding inside.

I was first surprised with how light this shoe is...I mean it's really light. For those that like to have a shoe that has no perceivable weight on their foot, this would be the one. Overall, I like the shoe, but feel as though it felt a little wide at the ankle. I would recommend this shoe as a good all around dress shoe.

This is a very nice shoe. It is well made, attractive, and comfortable. The sole is leather, so you need to be careful on a slick surface. My only complaint is that the toe is longer and more pointed than I expected, almost like a cowboy boot. It's probable that there are just things I don't understand about Italian shoe design.

Just about the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned. I have extra wide feet and am hard to fit so I am delighted to have found these. Have only had them one month so too early to tell how they will wear but wear them I will as they feel so good. Only one very small caveat: sole is a shiny hard rubber material and therefore slippery on ice.

These shoes felt great right from the start. They were pretty much broke in after one day. Also, this is a great looking shoe.

I ordered this in a EE width for my husband, which is his usual width. He couldn't even get his foot into the shoe because the opening was so narrow.

Easily the most comfortable dress shoes I've ever worn. I got a brown pair first, loved them so much, bought the black pair too.

So far I love these shoes. I think I'm still breaking them in a little bit because I feel like I could get a blister occasionally, but overall I am really happy!

This shoe looks different than in the picture. The fit was fine but looks and durability were horrible. In the picture it looks like a regular burgundy leather shoe but it was actually more like patent leather or corfram with a plastic shell. So this shoe can't be polished and looks ridiculous with its plastic shell. The plastic doesn't hold up at all either so after two days of wear inside a hotel for a conference (I never even wore them outside) the plastic shell had peeled off in multiple places making them look terrible with no easy way to fix them. Something must have changed or Zappos is sending the wrong shoes recently because all of the previous rave reviewers (and description on the site) don't seem to indicate that these are patent leather.

This is a great true fit shoe. Hard to find that in today's shoe industry unless you are paying upwards. The construction is excellent, nice leathers, and the sole is re-soleable. For the price, this is a great buy.

Stylish shoes in wide sizes are hard to find. I'll be honest, my initial impression out of the box was not good, but that was changed when I put them on my feet. Super comfortable and they look good too! I would definitely recommend for the price and comfort!

A difficult foot for slip on shoes led me to my first experience with Zappos. It was a good experience. I ended up ordering twice. The first time only one of the three pairs fit, but it looked like someone applied the finish with a paint brush - and quickly at that. The second four pairs ordered had two that worked. While the choice was challenging I chose the Bostonian Mendon on appearance. I was impressed with Zappos ease of return and the covering shipping in both directions.
