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.

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.

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

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.

These shoes look great, classic design, even smell good. Fit just as I expected. They are lightweight yet sturdy.
