A really beautiful shoe, and very comfortable. I wish they were cheaper, though. Great with navy or grey suits, but I will say this: they are almost too formal for some settings, e.g., an academic conference or for teachers. Would be good for weddings, business people in interviews, lawyers, etc., but not for those of us who actually have to try to look a bit nerdy and less formal.

This is the second pair of the same shoe I have ordered. Both times, they fit perfectly. However, I believe that Bostonian must be cutting back on the quality of their leather since the second pair didn't hold up nearly as well as the first. Heels, I can understand. But the soles already have holes in them. I nurse these shoes too. Just wear them at work and barely wear them outside. Not nearly as comfortable as the first pair. This is not a reflections on Zappos. Their customer service has always been excellent.

Classic design, great quality, supple leather and very comfortable. This shoe can be worn with any color jeans or a well tailored suit. Just a great black shoe.

Great shoe, true to size. Had previously purchased the Akron from a brick and mortar. Found it a bit too narrow for my taste (although it was extremely comfortable). No blisters, no heel or ankle rubbing after the first day. Felt broken in almost immediately. I highly recommend this brand/style... and Zappos! was as great as ever with shipping and customer service.

I ordered these shoes for my father-in-law to wear to my daughter's commencement. Because he wears a narrow I went straight to Zappos and I found this shoe on the first try. He loved them and they fit perfectly. He was in them for 10 hours and said they were so comfortable and felt like he'd already broken them in. They looked so good, even better in real life. It was his first time shopping Zappos and he was so impressed with the way you could view the bottom of the shoe since he wanted leather soles. Also the speed of service, and of course his shoes. Thanks for saving the day! (We used over night shipping, that's how fast we needed them and you came through!) Thanks again!
