These are good shoes for the price. They are not the most stylish shoes, but they look better than the comparable Johnston & Murphy or Allen Edmonds. They are well made. I am keeping them. But size 10 feels more like 10½.

I liked the look of these shoes, but when I first put them on and laced them up tight I felt pain across the top of my foot, beneath the shoes' laces. I should have returned them right away, but I laced them more loosely and hoped that they would "break in" in a couple days. In fact, it took months of daily wear for them to break in to the point that they didn't hurt my feet. Also, there isn't much arch support. The insole isn't removable and there isn't enough room inside the shoes to insert my own insoles for extra support. After about 9 months of weekday wear, the soles wore through and I decided to retire them for a more comfortable pair rather than try to repair them. The heels of these shoes are hard and will make loud clicky sounds as you walk on pavement or tiled floors.

It was difficult to get the shoe on. Once on, it was extremely tight across the top. I checked the size and it is what I ordered. I'm hoping that the it gets better the next time I wear therm. Even with all that, they look great.

Unable to wear this shoe even though it looked good. The edge of the opening of the shoe hit my ankle bone protrusion on either side (the malleolus). Had to return it.

In less than three months there is a hole in the sole. I have never gone through a shoe this fast. The last Bostonian I ordered lasted me 3 years.

This is a great shoe for the price. It has a short break in time and the fact that it comes in many widths really helps with an excellent fit. I put rubber zip soles on mine for around $35 and they will last for years with the only thing to do is polish.

This was my first foray into online shopping for shoes. I wear a wide and can rarely find something in the stores. With Zappos.com I was able to find what I needed in a matter of minutes and couldn't be happier with the product. I've since used Zappos to buy another pair of shoes and a messenger bag. All orders were delivered on time. I will definitely be using Zappos again.

A little more narrow than I expected. The soles are very squeaky on tile and similar surfaces. The left shoe squeaks when I walk...due to odd fit. Tried adjusting laces. No luck yet.

The style was nice, but the leather looked borderline patent leather but not as nice. I thought that they were too glossy and looked a little too much like pleather.

I'm not normally a brand loyalist, but I've bought this same pair of shoes from Zappos once a year for the past four years. You can't go wrong with these.

I have been wearing Bostonian Oxfords like these for years. They go well with jeans or a suit; Appropriate for a wedding, funeral or just handing out with sweetie. The cost is a very good price for these. You would be hard pressed to find a better pair of 100% leather oxfords like these!

Absolutely gorgeous shoe, but unfortunately, not true to width size. A "4E" is more like a "D" or maybe "E" at best. I picked up a pair of Rockports, and they are a real "4E."

Good shoe, especially for the price. Good office shoe. Quality soles, good uppers. Literally zero arch support and I have high arches. Shoe is "short" so there is no room for an insert. Run a bit big, and they get very narrow at the toe. Don't recommend doing what I did and putting in 6 miles on your feet the first day you wear them. They will be nice after they get broken in better.

I purchased these shoes for my son. The shoes are beautifully made and very classy; however, we will be sending them back because of sizing. (My son wears a size 15 football cleat, but I ordered these in size 14. They were quite large. I haven't previously ordered men's dress shoes so they must run quite differently than athletic shoes. (I marked sizing as large for size.)

Super light and comfortable shoes, ordered for my fiancé and he really has liked them so far. We ordered 1/2 size too small initially not knowing what the correct size would be. Zappos makes it so easy to exchange shoes and have wonderful customer service. Can't say enough great things about Zappos!

Nice shoe, just ran longer than most 10's my husband wears. Hope to be able to get the 9.5 wide.

Okay, shoe...definitely not the "classic", authentic Bostonian but it's worth the sale price. I will say this, whatever size you wear there...you wear here. Just an FYI. Thanks as always Zappos!

Fabulous and very comfortable shoe! I tried six different pairs of shoes to go with my new suits and these could be worn right out of the box. No need to break them in. I wore them walking in New York City with no problem.

I have used these shoes for worldwide business travel and have found them to be very comfortable and resilient. While not the most stylish, their other qualities more than make up for it.

This is my favorite work shoe, great for travel with slip on... very light and comfortable. The only downside is the longevity. I buy a black and brown pair once every year... after 1 year of continuous wear for work, these shoes are done.. the sole becomes very slippery with tread gone and worn smooth.. When I start slipping to much, that is my warning to chuck the old pairs in the trash and buy a new pairs.. That said, I have never had issues with stitching or sole separation. The only issue is with the treads becoming worn away and very slippery on wet surfaces after 1 year.

This dress shoe is very comfortable, and stylish. I haven't used it long enough, but it looks like it is durable. 5 stars for this shoe!
