One of the best pair of shoes/boots that I own! Goes great with just about anything. I wear these mostly for work (wear mostly slim khakis, slim button down shirt...jeans on casual Fridays etc.), but they are great for adult parties (I make the distinction, I guess, because I go to a lot of kids' parties), and date night with the wife when I have to look decent, don't really want to think about what I'm going to wear, and want to be comfortable. These shoes don't offer much arch support and run a little big, so I just added an insole to solve both problems. I wouldn't recommend wearing these is you plan on walking all day but otherwise great shoes for everyday use.

Slightly uncomfortable across the top of the foot but may soften with continued wears as this is mostly leather.

Nice boot. Great leather, comfortable. stylish. Only complaint is the stretch band is a little hard to get the boot on and off. Zipper would be easier. The tab at the back is too small to get my finger in too. Wouldn't return them for that. They are pretty cool!

HOT DERN these boots are a classic. The leather quality MUST be near full grain in terms of thickness but the shell is so much more smooth than any full grain boot I've owned. I bought these to scuff and wear carelessly with cargo pants and over the winter but I actually fear I'll struggle to give them some character, they're just so bombproof!

I just got this belt today, it is the first expensive belt I have ever owned. It fits just right. Based on the measurements they provide (31½" to first hole for size 32), it seems the length goes up perhaps only 1" for every two steps in size, because I got a 36, and it is 33½" to the first hole. The buckle is so nice, not too shiny and not too rustic - very classy. What I love the most is how the leather looks a bit overly distressed when laid out flat, but once you curve it, it flexes into form and takes on a really nice, slightly distressed sheen. I guess this is the sign of a quality leather product. It seems to be well worth the money!

I have ordered 3 pairs of these Varvatos boat shoes because my husband loves them so much. The leather is soft, comfortable, stretches nicely (but not too much) and goes so nicely with most spring/summer outfits. We have purchased them in tan as well. My husband wears a large size shoe, so it's great to find a shoe that runs up to size 13/14 and still looks very handsome on the foot.

These shoes were pretty lame for the price. I'm returning them. If I'm going to pay this much for a pair of shoes, how about a sole that doesn't look and feel like a pair of Skechers? Also there's a little hand with a "peace" sign on them, don't know how I missed that, I'm not sure if that's like a brand thing, but I don't play Pogs or own a trapper keeper anymore, so no thanks. They are also lighter than they appear in the photo.

Great style, Poor comfort. The Good: They look great! The Bad: Uncomfortable, need to add insoles, pricey, soles wear out quick.

First day...leather is nice and should break in easily. Nice rubber with light tread. Zipper is noisy when walking. The sizing feels slightly big but not like a half size.

I LOVE these shoes. I get many compliments on them. The calfskin leather is very soft and the shoes come with a broken-in feel to them. A great addition to any shoe collection.

I love these shoes, but after about a week the right shoe developed a really annoying squeak! This rendered the shoes unwearable. I called Zappos and they kindly refunded the shoes as defective. I have ordered another pair, but sadly they did not have the same color.

Great shoe with a very soft leather. I have the black and they are a great, dressy shoe. I'm not sure they could be worn for a night out, though, but definitely a great shoe for the office. They are a little narrower than I thought they would be but I think I have mildly fat feet so that might have something to do with it.

Looks really good, but very uncomfortable. Shoes are a whole size smaller than marked. It narrow and very tight. Not suited for wearing all day.

Love these shoe and I've only had them a few days. The leather is extremely soft but durable. Not a lot of foot padding but I wasn't expecting much; overall very comfortable. Runs a little on the large side. High quality shoe, I'll be buying a second pair.

Why pay so much for something that cannot give you the comfort nor the support you expect. At least not at that price. Why do we saddle ourselves with vain name tags which do nothing for us.

I purchased the mineral schooner and I have to say, this shoe was way too narrow around the toes. The stitching on the sides of the shoe dug into my little toe. It was a disappointment because the heel was very comfortable. I have an average foot (not too wide or narrow) and felt this shoe was way too narrow in the toe box. If it was a bit wider, I would have kept them - back they go. I even ordered a size up - same issue. On a separate note, I also purchased the blue leather Schooners which are super comfortable. So I think its just the crinkled up style that is way narrow.

Actually saw this shoe at Nordstrom's. The store didn't have my size and offered to ship it about 1 week later....ordered and received from Zappos in 2 1/2 days.

These are nice shoes. When they say Lead they mean GRAY. The picture hints a shade of muted brown, but they're not. After reading some of the reviews about size, I ordered a 1/2 size smaller and they fit perfectly. The only thing that bothers me is they're stamped John Varvatos-USA on the inside and the soles but they are made overseas. A little pricey no matter who makes them.

A great shoe. The first day I wore them they killed my heel; by the end of the day and I had to use a band-aid. I realized this shoe fit like a glove so well I did not have to tie the laces tightly like with other shoes. Now they feel great. I really like the simple style. Definitely more formal than casual.

Shoe looks great and feels great once it is on. But it is a little hard to get on. The "neck" of the shoe is a bit narrow, and it takes some effort to squeeze my foot through.

Nice shoes and found them at a great price. Wear them with jeans and also with work clothes. Toe is a little wider than how it appears in the pictures. Other that that, happy with the purchase.
