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.

Folks at my job that polish the floors asked me to stop wearing these because of the heel scuffs. Other than that, they felt great!

Love these shoes. I was a little skeptical when I first received them (because the color was a little more red than I thought I wanted), but after wearing them and breaking them in I started to like the color more and more. These are my first pair of shoes from this brand and they fit great! And as usual had no problem with the shipping and customer service from Zappos.

I'd also recommend: Cole Haan

My husband just got these, and after only wearing them around the house for an hour or two, the finish has flaked away on one of the shoes (on top, where it creases). I'm hoping this is simply an aberration, and so we're sending these back and exchanging for another pair.

This shoe is great for dancing, which is why I kept it. The sole is very slippery, so probably not good for an office environment.
