I was looking for a good, comfortable, casual shoe that looked nicer than a running shoe. I liked the style of this shoe, but it was very uncomfortable. It felt both smaller and narrower than marked, and the seaming was directly over the area where I've unfortunately developed bunions. I previously thought this would be a great choice because it had removable insoles, which would make room for my custom orthotics, however, I ordered several different shoes to try, and I much preferred the Dansko Hillary and the Mephisto Laser Perfore to this shoe. Both were way more comfortable.

This is a wonderful shoe. Well made and comfortable. Two bunions and a hammer toe run amok resisted, however, so I returned. But it's sharp, and I'm sorry I can use.

I have been trying for years to find some shoes to replace my Josef Seibel shoes from years ago. I only wear them to Europe or big cities. As cited by other reviewers, the quality of Josef Seibel has declined. However, in the past two years, I found 2 styles that I found very acceptable. The first was Tina 07 Equipe and these. Very good arch support in both. Decent leather and overall appearance, especially when worn with black pants. After all, these are comfort, not designer shoes. My biggest complaint is that I am between a 37 and 38 and many European shoes do not make half sizes. Usually, I default to the 38, but not always. This time, I had to return the size 37 and kept the 38.

This cute bootie almost worked. The problem was that the elastic panel on the sides rubbed against my ankle bone. Ouch.

Tried a size 41 at a local store; it was too large and they didn't have 40. The 40 I ordered had comfy footbed and toe box, but heel edge curved inward and rubbed my heal. Also, because I guess I have a high instep, the closure worked fine, but didn't cover the Velcro pad -- it left about 1" of Velcro exposed when the strap was tight. I imagine it would attract fibers and fuzz over time and look weird.

The shoe was very stylish, but too narrow especially across the ball of the foot. It was too tight to be worn with a light sock.

I have purchased Josef Seibel shoes for years for traveling, especially for Europe with the cobblestones. Most styles I have tried in the past ten years have been inferior to my older shoes either due to inferior materials or the manufacturing has been outsourced from Europe. These shoes, however, seem to be much closer to my older styles in terms of quality and comfort. I have always been between a 37 and 38 in this brand. Too bad they don't make half sizes. I usually opt for the 38 and use an insole. I have these shoes 3 stars for style. These shoes are not meant to be stylish. They are designed for walking all day. They do, however, blend with black pants and jeans and do not distract from a stylish overall appearance.

Love these shoes! I have a wide foot and these are almost as comfortable as tennis shoes. One little hiccup is the insole it doesn't stay in place so sometimes it gets bunched up and causes some discomfort. Love the support and lightweight feel of the shoe!

I was choosing between this boot and the Pikolinos Brujas. I chose this one (the Josef Seibel) because I thought the shiny leather was a little more formal, and therefore easier to dress up for work. It's incredibly comfortable - I walked at least 8 miles immediately on my first day owning them without a blister or hotspot or sore feet. They look and feel great!

I love these shoes! These are very comfortable and light weight shoes. I was able to wear them almost all day the first time I put them on. The leather is very soft with no rough seams on the inside allowing you to wear them without socks comfortably. I will wear them with and without socks. They look very cute. These shoes will fit a slightly wider foot, and have plenty of room for my toes.

The butteriest leather and the softest (thin, luxurious) faux fur lining. These boots are so comfortable, even with the heel. I highly recommend them!

I enjoy wearing my Josef Seibel Ingrid shoes. They feel great for a while. I wouldn't want to wear them traveling around all day as a tourist. The Zappos service is great as usual.

I tried two sizes in this shoe and my heels kept popping out of the shoe. The smaller size was no different and was too short in the toe. The shoe did not seem the high quality that Seibel used to be. I've been wearing them for 12 years and they are not the quality I used to get from Seibel shoes.

I had looked at this shoe for a long time. When I finally bought it I was so excited to see that it was as beautiful as in the pictures. The inside is smooth and soft. I wear this shoe all day as a school nurse and it does not rub and feels good all day. Other than the shoelaces are kind of short, it is perfect.

Love these shoes! I returned because I need one size larger and they are out of stock! I'm so sad.

I wear these shoes a lot and they go with just about all of my summer clothes. My feet are narrow though and the strap doesn't have long enough velcro to secure the the strap across my foot. These shoes would be absolutely perfect if the strap accommodated a narrow foot.

I have had these for 6 months now and wore them traveling all through Europe this summer. Comfortable? Actually, no! But cute and I bought them assuming they would be comfortable and was kind of stuck with them once I had packed them. I kept thinking they would "break in," but it hasn't really happened. They definitely run small and narrow and sadly no amount of wearing them is changing that.

They look great but I am usually a perfect size 7.5 and these were too tight. I thought wearing them would loosen them up. Nope. Order a half size up I think.

I typically wear a 1/2 size larger in boots but was able to get these in the same size as my normal shoe size. They look better in person than in the pictures. I have a narrow heel and wide forefoot and typically need shoes that are a wider fitting medium width. These were comfortable the first time out and are nice and stable.
