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.

I purchased this black pair for a wedding and an identical burgundy pair. They fit perfectly! Good thing as there was much walking. The shoes arrived a day after ordering just as my first Zappos order did which was sent to a hotel where I was staying. I wear a 4E and not only appreciate the proper fit, but the exemplary service. Zappos is great in my book!

Nice shoe. Too shiny for my taste. Soles are not stitched - tougher to replace when I'll need to. Fit was quite good.

I'd also recommend: Johnson & Murphy

The shine on this shoe is long lasting and much more pronounced than other Bostonian shoes I've owned. That's why I chose the Andover. It approaches the shine of patent leather but still retains a natural look. It is also very comfortable. I'm very happy with it.

I am pretty disappointed with the quality given the price. I needed a pair of dress shoes rather last minute to wear to an awards ceremony. I had already tried another pair of Bostonians (which looked great, but did not fit), so by the time these shoes arrived, I was really down to the wire (I sadly cannot just pop over to the nearest brick and mortar store, as I am a small guy and have smaller feet than what most stores will carry for). These shoes fit much better than the previous Bostonians that I tried, but I noticed, much to my dismay, that the caps on the toes were in two different places! Even though the shoes were in fact the same length, with the caps not matching, one shoe looked longer than the other. I was really stuck by that point, so I brought them in a bag and wore them as carefully as I could around a carpeted room for the few hours of the awards ceremony, and then called Zappos in a panic, hoping I could still send them back. Zappos was extremely wonderful about this, and accepted the return and credited me. So that was great! But the shoes were not. Once seen, I could not unsee the cap toe issue; in addition, the heels felt pretty clunky and I did not feel a great deal of confidence in the quality of the upper. The soles seemed decent. I guess I will have to keep looking.

I have purchased this same model shoe for the past seven years. Each time I order it is hard to pin down the size. Some years a 9 will fit, sometimes only a 9½ will fit. It is kind of hit or miss on the length for me. The width seems ok.
