The shoe is a little tight in the toe area (but only in the left shoe...weird), but overall, I'm happy with them. They look great and they are a good value for leather soled shoes.

Shoes fit great and wear well. That is, until 8 months in they develop an annoying squeak when walking. Not pleased.

I\'ve had these shoes for 2 years and have worn them to death (out dancing, out on long walks, to work, at formal events) and they still look almost new. And I find them to be basically as comfortable as sneakers. Great shoes!

Best business shoe I've ever worn. The Bostonian Akron takes little or no time at all to mold and conform to the shape of my feet. Other shoes of lesser quality can cause pain for days and days. But the Bostonian Akron becomes one with my feet in days.

I'd also recommend: None

I have been loyal to the Bostonian brand for some time now due to the high quality shoes they make to fit my large, wide feet. Not only are these shoes comfortable and stylish they are also high quality. The leather on every pair I have ever owned has withstood the rain, sleet, snow and summer heat without issue. I am usually replacing/patching the sole before the shoes show any sign of wear.

This shoe a solid value and I've owned a few pairs over the years. One fit issue, however, should be noted. The sides are cut about one-quarter inch higher than the similar shoe by Cole Haan (which I prefer to these). The result for some will be annoying or even slightly painful contact with the ankle bone, especially with thin socks.
