This is a great shoe. The top of my heel took a bit of a beating during the break-in with the braided material. But once broken in, they are one of my favorite shoes.

I purchased a pair of these shoes. Very snug fit, but very comfortable. First time I wore them on business trip, the heel fell off. I called the Allen Edmonds and asked for a store in Manhattan, NYC to exchange the shoes. Their reply was I could only send them back to the company, no retail stores in Manhattan, NYC. I got home walking, with great difficulty, to Washington DC with one heel broken off. Sent shoes back and then the company told me that this shoe did not fit my size 8D and that I should buy another, quite a bit more expensive. I did purchase the shoes and two years later the the shoes were so painful that I tossed them into my closet never to be worn again. A lot of money down the tubes.

Watch your size on this shoe - These shoes run a little on the tight side, I wear a D width in shoes and these feel like a C. Also the length is a little short, 10 1/2 feels more like 10-10 1/4. They also don't seem to stretch too easily. Nice looking shoe overall. I like it.

The right shoe is tighter than the left shoe in the foot area and both are loose in the ankle. They look nice. Too bad they hurt my feet.

I have a narrow foot, so finding shoes to fit usually means going to a more expensive shoe. Allen-Edmonds still fills that need but are hard to find. Thankfully Zappos was able to supply the shoes I needed and did not charge shipping. They provided me with a tracking number I could use if needed. The shoes arrived on time and nicely packed. They fit great. Thanks to Allen-Edmonds and Zappos. I will surely return to Zappos for any of my shoe purchasing needs. Jim

My husband owns these in every color. He is very hard on shoes; walks fast, always in a rush. Usually wears Italian leather for the comfort, but we have to replace so often! A friend suggested the style and durability of Allen Edmonds and even a local shoemaker said they were high quality. They offered the comfort and style he likes with a thicker a sturdier leather base. I love that they last so long and look great. Also, only Zappos carries his size 8! Love Zappos! Love Allen Edmonds shoes!

I've worn Allen Edmonds shoes for many years. Having a narrow foot (12A), it's difficult to get a proper fit. This model fits perfectly, is comfortable and a great "business casual" choice.

I stand most of the day. These shoes took one day to break in and are the most comfortable I have worn. I can feel the quality every time I wear them. I would recommend these to any person looking for the elegance of a fine quality pair of shoes. I will never again buy lesser quality shoes.

This is my first time Allen Edmonds shoe purchase. I love the shoe and the Zappos service is super. I ordered the shoe at 9:05 pm Monday and I am trying them on at 11:10am on Tuesday. Now, that is service!

Love my new shoes. Glad to be able to order narrow width, usually have to put padding up under the inside top of loafers to keep my heal from pulling up. The actual shoes look as good or better than the picture. Appreciate the free shipping, and I'll be back soon.

Superb construction, classic styling. Obviously pricey, but it is a high end shoe. Fairly true to size, but might be a bit narrow to some people. Ordered it in 3E and they fit well, but still snug. For those needing wider widths, I would recommend going all the way to the widest available.

Maxfield review - Tho only negative thing about this shoe is that if you have wide feet it takes a little breaking in for the leather across the top of the shoe to get comfortable. Other than that I am extremely happy with the shoes.

Made in America - Just a short note to express the Allen-Edmonds shoe. I have purchased a Chilli and Black colored pair, amazingly the both fit the same!! Good old American workmanship. Yes, it does cost a little more but, I did not have to take them to be stretched, or buy liners to make the heel part fit! You get what you pay for! Thanks for allowing me to express my feelings about this product.

Made in the U.S.! I find it unfortunate that one cannot judge quality based on most brands anymore, but A-E never disappoints me. Nice construction looks better than the photos. I probably would not want to walk around the streets of NY in them only because the fine leather sole would take a beating, but that is not where these shoes belong. My feet are wide so many of the made in Italy shoes are tight; A-E's fit my feet much better.

Maxfield’s - The Maxfield exemplifies the quality construction and high-end looks of Allen-Edmonds' footwear. It's true to size, width and comfortable to wear all day. The shoe's styling goes well with business dress and casual wear.

These Maxfield's rock! You can feel the difference between a shoe made in China, someplace in Europe and those made in the US. Having been a Clarks (made in England) shoe zealot for years, I bought a pair of Allen's and fell in love with them. The quality, look and finish are second to none. For those not used to walking on leather soles, it takes some getting used to, especially over rocks or small pebbles, but other than that, you'll enjoy years of service out of these...And, if they need new soles, A-E offers resoling services.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any A-E shoes that are made in the USA.

Comfortable shoe and true to size. I wear a narrow-width shoe (B), and loafers are often difficult to find. Zappos always has such a great selection for B width! This shoe is great! Thanks.

AE Maxfields - All of my AE fits well, feels great and this one did not disappoint. AE makes a tremendous shoe & pretty much is the only shoe in my closet. The only complaint is I am a little bit disappointed in the look, not much just a little bit.

I am actually a little disappointed in the comfort of this shoe considering the cost. The right shoe fits snugger through the top of the shoe than the left. I find my Johnson & Murphy's a great deal more comfortable.
