I love them. I have an extremely wide foot with a very high arch and require a 2 inch heel. Finding shoes to fit is a constant trial. I can get width but no heel, heel but no room in the arch, etc. These fit right out of the box. The footbed is harder than a walking shoe but I was particularly pleased with the way the leather upper cradled my foot. The upper did stretch and then I wished I had bought a bit narrower width. (Unheard of for me.) I started wearing them around the house with a light sock and can't make myself give them up, as shabby as they now are, after three or four years. So very happy to have found them and they make my feet look smaller. Who knew! I'm buying an extra pair just in case they cancel them. In the winter I wear Rose Petals by Walking Cradles. Closed in toe and so very comfy. Look good with winter clothes. They are also open in the heel back.

I have extreme wide and thick feet. I love these shoes. For me they are true in size.

I ordered these in a EE width. I have bunions on both feet and most dress shoes cut right across them. The shape of these shoes cradles my bunions and the width accommodates them. Thank you, David Tate, for making dress shoes in extra-wide widths! I'll be able to dance all night!

Nice shoe but runs wide and since the inside sole is leather it is slippery. But a good looking shoe. I am going to try it in a narrow width.

Love them. Need a smaller size. Comfy front and back! Also ordered another color.

Beautiful shoe. Loved this sandal but it seemed more narrow than other 4A shoes I have worn. Wanted to exchange it for a 3A but not available.

I live in Arizona and haven't worn a dress shoe for over twenty years, but I needed to look proper for a major speaking event in the mid-west. I wore these wonderful shoes for the entire event and never once felt any discomfort! I will stick with this brand in the future.

These shoes are exactly what I was looking for. The heel is just high enough to elongate my legs but comfortable enough to stand-on during a long evening. The width is a bit wider than expected. I have narrow feet but the narrow width is not as snug as I prefer. Overall, a stylish and comfortable shoe.

So this is a dress sandal, so I didn't expect Birkenstock-caliber comfort and I didn't get it either. But it's very pretty and has a kind of retro 40s vibe that is very appealing. The heel is not too high, and the mesh is nice because it does not bind and cut. I ordered a W and a WW because I can wear both, depending on the style of the shoe. I found that the W worked fine on my foot (WW would have been too loose). I think these sandals will be fine to wear for a few hours at weddings, cocktail parties etc. I own a couple of pairs of David Tate shoes, including the Yknot, which is much more comfortable than this shoe. But this shoe is streamlined and pretty, and not a torture chamber like so many pumps/dress shoes can be for women with foot issues.

I purchased the Luggage Calfskin David Tate Simplicity in size 8 double W. I didn't count on the boots working as I often wear an 8 1/2 W in boots and closed shoes. I ordered the WW because reviews said the boots run narrow, which they do. Comfort is most important to me (bunions on both feet & cyst on right heel). I've been wearing the boots since they arrived today. They are feeling very nice and not rubbing anywhere. Because of the cyst in my heel I may add a 2nd soft little cushion in the right shoe which can be slipped in easily (as cushy insert that comes with the boot is removable!). As far as style is concerned, I would not say the boot is exquisite but it is nice. The "Luggage" which is a Palomino color may be worn with pants in some tan colors or jeans. Generally it's hard to find light colored boots (tan, taupe, grey) that are comfortable so, happy to find them. I don't know about wearing the boots with a skirt as some reviewers said but maybe with the right casual style dress or skirt and tights.

I waffled about whether to keep these, but in the end I did. I have wide feet and they are a little cramped in the toe area -- not optimal, but not a deal breaker. But they look sleek and beautiful, and they look great with jeans or trousers.

Cute, stylish comfy and sexy! Only 1 complaint; they are loud. Even though they are cork they are not a soft walk. Comfy though.

Excellent fit and comfortable out of the box. My first day wearing them I was on my feet most of the day. Nice heel height that looks dressy, makes for a shapely looking leg.

These were comfortable, but I wore them only one season and the foot beds became soiled to the point where they were nasty looking. I work in am office, and do not walk outside that much, so I do not know why that was. It was so ugly that I did not even take them to a consignment or even charity. I threw them away.

I am so pleased to have comfortable boots that truly fit my WW feet. They are even cute, to boot! I bought a pair of these in back two years ago, and wore them all around Europe and the U.S. for hours. They were comfortable for 10 mile days and I am hoping that these ones are as well!

Great boot! Originally ordered my size in a wide based on reviews, but ended up going a half size smaller and regular width. Love the boot, super comfortable even on the first day and great style.

Bought these for my son's wedding. They fit perfectly (I have a wide foot and arthritis) and are actually comfortable enough to wear for several hours!

I appreciate that others write a review on shoes and so I will return the favor. I have small feet 4.5 and this boot is beautiful, classic looking. It walks well, not slippery and heel is just the right height to make you feel secure/sturdy. Toe box is a little snug but I think it will get better with more wear. Very happy with purchase.

I picked out & bought these boots for my daughter's 36th birthday. She was thrilled with the perfect fit. 10EE - a very hard to find much less fit. Worth the money spent on these fine leather boots. Will shop Zappos again for the variety of choices of nice leather boots and shoes.

I love the look of this sandal. Based on previous customer reviews, I was confident that these would fit my wide feet comfortably--and they did. These sandals look great on my feet, and I love wearing them. However, the only drawback to this sandal is the extremely rigid platform/sole. Although comfortable, wearing this sandal is like strapping a 2X4 to your foot! The sole has absolutely no "give" whatsoever, and as a result, draws a lot of undesirable attention when walking. I love people noticing my shoes, but not when my footwear draws attention because of all the noise it makes! I think these sandals are great for places that have a fair amount of ambient background noise (which masks the sound of my feet going clomp, clomp, clomp) but not so good for more quiet environments.

My new favorite shoes -- so comfortable and stylish and lovely. I have wide feet, and 11W fits me perfectly. Heel height is just right for long walks.
