I have purchased eight pairs of these shoes over the past couple of years, and I hope to live long enough to have purchased at least two or three dozen of these wonderful shoes by the time (in the future when I get to discover if there is Zappos in heaven, or in some less accommodating place) it's my time to go. Over the years, as my more senior pairs of Rockport Margins began to show their age, I bought fresh, shiny new ones, some black and some brown (chocolate). The newer ones get along just fine with the older ones, unlike spouses where getting replaced with a younger model does not go over quite so well. The older ones are content to live a less structured life and be relegated to yard work and dog-walking, while their newer stablemates get the honor of protecting my feet from the harsh concrete and carpet which covers this fair place we call Earth (or at least to the office, where shoes are pretty much mandatory). These are my shoes, period. These are absolutely as comfortable as running shoes, as durable as a football, and require no break-in to be comfortable. Even after wearing them daily for several years (at work) and a fair amount of walking, there have been no issues with any seams coming apart or sole bonding issues. The soles wear well and grip well on all normal horizontal surfaces where people might attempt to walk. The insole holds up. Heck, even the laces are good quality and they come in a very sturdy yet attractive black recyclable cardboard box. I am a picky person, and quite frankly I cannot think of any fault or weakness with these shoes. If you were somehow born with shoes permanently attached to your feet, these would be a good option. Not to sound like a Rockport fan-boy, but I also bought a pair of the Rockport 'Dressport Truwalk Captoe' which is an almost identical shoe, except it has a 'captoe' and is considered a dress shoe. The Dressport has a slightly different sole. I have not tried the Nubuck variant of the Margin, so cannot comment on how their suede holds up. Buy these shoes and your life will be complete, not complete as in finished or over, but complete as in whole, harmonious, and serene. I am not a shoe fetishist, but if I were, these shoes would be my object of my deepest affection and desire.

I had these for under 24 hours before returning them, and just wore them around the house. They are indeed very comfortable and the leather seemed like it would hold up well. What was not acceptable is that the soles are made of what I call rubber foam that cheap/lightweight material you see in the lowest-priced shoes at department stores. While it's very lightweight and aids in comfort It wears out ridiculously fast unless you're only walking on carpet in airports. I imagine the soles on these will be gone or lopsided inside of a few months considering the amount of walking I do on pavement.

Very nice, sturdy, business/casual shoe. No surprises - just what I wanted. Delivery was prompt and tracking was accurate. Size is right, but my feet slip a little inside the shoe. Need thicker socks or an insert.

Shoes appear well-made and are comfortable. This shoe has minimal arch support, but that is what I look for because I have relatively flat feet.

Love, love, love these shoes. I wear them daily to work in a business casual office. They are exceptionally comfortable, and I love the fact that Zappos carries them in larger sizes (I wear a 14EE). I just ordered another pair in black.

I bought these shoes for my 94 year old grandfather whose feet have been bothering him for years. I needed a shoe that was stable, sort of dressy, and with plenty of room for his gnarly old toes. We returned the first pair because he thought it was too small. Zappos return system was great. We replaced them with the same shoes one size bigger and one width wider, but I don't think the shoes run small or narrow. I just think he's been wearing shoes that were too small for him for years. Since getting the new shoes he has not complained about his feet at all. He walks better (more stable and no pain) and they look great. I have a pair of Rockports myself, so I knew they'd be light and comfortable, but I wanted to write this review for anyone who is thinking of buying these for someone who is elderly. They were perfect. Also, I could have gotten these shoes cheaper elsewhere on the Internet, but I was glad I chose Zappos when I needed to return the first pair. Great service.

I really like these shoes because they maintain their shape. Also, there are no stitching lines, so when you shine them, they really look even more special. Guess what? I liked them so much, I bought a second pair, in the exact same size and color again because I want to wear them all the time. Additionally, I like the return policy a lot.

Very sharp looking shoe. I found it to be narrow compared to other shoes I've purchased. This is the first pair of shoes that I had to opt for the wide option. Otherwise, true to size.

I ordered a replacement pair for the ones initially purchased in December 2009. Having worn the shoe on average 6 days a week the rubber soles are worn out, although the top portion is still in great shape after extensive use. This shoe is very comfortable if your job involves prolonged standing.

Wow! For a "casual" shoe, this has very classy lines. My husband is impressed by the comfort and fit which affords all day wearability, the subtle squared toe, and of course the padding; I'm pleased by the appearance and style. The brown is a very attractive clearly brown shade,not too dark. As always - Rockport & Zappos are a winning team! Cannot go wrong with this product.

I've had no problem with these shoes and they feel and look great. I needed to buy a suede protection spray for any splash that may damage the suede, just being cautious. Otherwise great shoe!

I'm very pleased to be able to get a decent selection of narrow width shoes, especially Rockport which I have worn for 30 or more years. Zappos prices and overall service can't be beat.

Zappos customer service was so helpful and courteous. I received my order within just a couple of days. When I rec'd my shipment and noticed I'd asked for the wrong size, they quickly sent me the pair I was supposed to have ordered the first time.

My expeience has been only positive. I ordered two pair and when they arrived they did not fit. I returned them and ordered two more pair which arrived and fit nicely. The shipping both ways for each pair was free and the payment procedure was painless as well. Thanks I'll be back. Do ou sell golf shoes? Please let me know.

I'm very happy with the fit, the comfort and the service from Zappos. After I'd worn these for a while I ordered another Rockport style and like them every bit as much. Rockport is a good find for me.

My husband has worn Rockports over the years, usually very satisfied. He seems pleased with these, says they are roomy around ankle, which he needs (Wide size). He's been wearing them, right out of box comfort.
