I got the shoes to use daily at work, and I love them. They are lightweight and easy on your feet. I used to wear some Doc Martens but they weighted a lot and wouldn't let my feet breathe. These are great! In fact I have already placed an order for the brown ones too.

The shoes do not fit, most likely because Zappos insists on stretching the damn shoes with those little plastic rods so that people won't return them because they pinch. The problem is that by the time I get them they're so stretched that they don't stay on my feet, and slip off with every step. Stop stretching the shoes. What is the point of ordering the correct size if you're going to stretch them so much that they don't fit?

These shoes are outstanding. The best loafers I've owned. They fit well, are completely comfortable, are well made and look good. I expect them to last for many years and would recommend them to anyone.

Very comfortable and excellent leather quality, soft as butter inside yet fit snug and conforming. A good bargain for the price so I bought two pair!

I was very pleased with all aspects of my recent purchase through Zappos. The shoes in original shipment were a little large (my bad), but the return and reshipment were handled smoothly and swiftly. I would not hesitate to use Zappos again.

The Docker casual shoes I purchased are great, very comfortable with and with out socks, nice looking. The service at Zappos was excellent, one of the best I have used. The order was shipped at once and the follow up was outstanding. Love the free freight.I would recommend using Zappos to anyone.

Nice style - I am very fussy when it comes to casual foot wear. Recently I searched several malls for a good looking soft leather slip on shoe. These shoes competed with other shoes that costs twice as much. With the savings I was able to purchase another pair of shoes. Great value, super comfortable.

Comfortable Men's Shoes - Wow! Men's shoes have finally gotton comfortable. My husband says the Catalina is like wearing a bedroom shoe. There are 2 other similar styles I've tried to find in local stores but they don't have his size. (The Wayfarer and Bayview.) So I'm ordering them online. I hope they'll be as comfortable. If not, I'll just send them back.

Comfortable, but I'd strongly suggest ordering .5-1 sizes smaller. The leather immediately starts to give and the shoe can become very loose. Not the best for walking in (especially sockless) but fine for around the house.

I have had good luck with previous Dockers shoes, so I figured I would try out these loafers. These shoes are comfortable, stylish enough, and can be worn in a variety of settings. Great for the price.

Good shoe. Bought an 11, the length was too long, had to send back. Got a 10.5, and the width was a little too small.

I had a brown pair which were really great looking and were also very comfortable. They do stretch so you need a very true size though. However, after two months of wear, they started to fall about. The stitching came undone on top and the front of the sole became detached. I would buy them again but it would have to be for much less. They do not breath well, either!

There is poor quality stitching, after five wearings the upper outer seam on the right shoe split open. I only performed normal office activity while wearing them.

Very comfortable pair of shoes. However, I wore them for only a couple of days and the stitching came apart. It could just be a bad egg. Nonetheless, Zappos' customer service was OUTSTANDING and they immediately sent me out a new pair of shoes, with rush delivery. Hopefully this pair of shoes won't fall apart. But I did want to point out that these shoes were extremely comfortable and well designed.

Slipped right on and felt great. These are the only shoes that feel comfortable immediately. I would recommend these shoes to anyone who wants a quick slip on shoe and particulalry those people who have sensitive feet.

Great "business casual" shoe, Attractive and comfortable. On my feet, they felt a little tight at first, but broke in nicely with a few days of wear.

I have been buying this style and color for a few years. This is the first time I bought it through Zappos, and guess what? It's the first time that the color I order, and color shown is not the color I got. Not very happy about my purchase.

I bought a pair of these for my son and after he got them I thought they were really a nice looking shoe so I ordered a pair for myself. I am glad that I did. They are very comfortable and perfect for casual dress at work. I love dealing with Zappos most of all. Best online service that I have ever used. Easy to use website and delivery is fast! Thanks, Zappos, for taking care of your customers!

Ever since my first Zappos experience with Kathleen, a few months earlier, I will always buy my shoes from Zappos. She was the absolute best customer service rep that I have ever dealt with.

My husband LOVES these shoes. He has worn out two brown pairs already so when I came across them in black, I ordered them right away. He wears them constantly -- they must be very comfortable.

I originally ordered a size 8. Some of the reviews on this Dockers shoe said it ran true to size, others said it ran a half size large. Exchanged this and another Dockers style for a size 7.5 which fit well. Prices are competitive, but the big thing which differentiates Zappos from their competitors is their customer service. Before submitting my online order, I spoke with Jessica to verify that next day service is indeed free. I then called customer service the next day to rave about their incredible customer service and spoke with Stephanie and told her to thank Jessica for her great service. When I had to exchange for a smaller size, I spoke with Jaime who emailed me a return label. The deliveries actually happened earlier than promised. (Delivery depends on day and time of order.) Here's what all three of these special people had in common: They were friendly, sincere, knowledgeable, and eager to help me,their customer. They actually enjoy their positions. They weren't taught this great character. It is part of their makeup. With Zappos' wide shoe selection and great service, I don't see myself buying shoes anywhere else. It was the greatest online retail experience I've ever had. Great company, great people.
