Rockport Ellingwoods are elegantly nice. I got luau feet and so I'm grateful for the wide sizes that are available. When I was a kid in Hawaii I went to a Catholic school and we had to wear dress shoes. Are you serious? Dress shoes on a keiki in Hawaii? And what made it worse was that our playground was asphalt that would heat up during recess. It was like being on a lava flow. Anyway, I've always hated shoes since, but these Rockports are comfy. They have a shock-absorbing rubber sole and a removable inner sole about a 1/4 inch thick at the heel. I've been breaking them in on my daily 24 mile bicycle commute to work. No problems so far. And as an added bonus passing wahines keep telling me that nothing makes them want to go to the powder room more than a sharp-dressed man. Are you talking about me? Auwe! Mahalo, Zappos.

These have been some of the most painful shoes to bereak in that I have ever tried. Earlier reviews noted a lengthy break in period and I should have taken heed.

These Rockport shoes seem to be a good value at this price point. Since these shoes are water tight, it also makes them very warm during the winter.

This is the first pair of Rockports I've purchased that uses a leather "veneer" (for lack of a better word). The first scuff and the shoe was permanently damaged. My previous Rockports had thicker leather so a little shoe polish would fix it up. Not sure why they (Rockport) went the cheap route.

Bought this shoe to have something comfortable to wear to the office that would work with my orthotics and is a W width. Break in took a few painful days, but after that they felt pretty comfy and lasted for close to a year of everyday use. Only thing I really didn't like is that they squeak/squish terribly on polished marble or linoleum tile floor, anything smooth and polished. Otherwise are pretty comfortable and I certainly got a good amount of use for the price.

These shoes Rock! Although they look somewhat plain, they are snazzy and I wear them with dress pants or khaki pants. For me, there was no break-in time and the fit was great right out of the box. Zappos shipping got the shoes to my front door the next day! Wow, what great service.

This is my second pair! Plan on breaking them in before attending your first conference. Once you have they are great quality with durability. I wear them during trade shows and they feel great.

Overall, it seems like a quality business shoe. The leather is a little "dry?" Not sure how else to say it. It gets creases after the first wear at the bast of the tongue. Smart looking shoe, but get an insole unless you're flat footed.

These shoes have great style. They're beautiful. Unfortunately after wearing them for several hours at work my little toes began to bleed. I'm a size 13. I've always been a size 13. In fact, I wear two other Rockport shoes and they fit great. I can't return these now, nor can I wear them. Anybody need a pair of shoes? I wasted the money.

Really rough brake in period. Don't walk long distances before broken in. After they are broken in they are the most comfortable dress shoes I have ever owned. I walk almost 2 miles round trip to commute for work and my sneakers are only slightly better.

My husband is on his feet for 10-12 hours a day so it's important to have a shoe that holds up. He said you do have to break them in, but that is typical in new shoes. The crease has been difficult to break in and is still giving blisters, but overall good shoe.

Very sharp look. Leather shine keeps well. Was able to wear right out of the box; no break in. Used shoe forms to keep from creasing. overall good shoe for price. Seems like it was last.

Got these shoes to walk my daughter down the aisle and then dance the night away at the reception. Tried them on and they fit nicely but took them off to save them for the wedding. Day of the wedding I put them on about noon...and took them off at 1 am early morning the next day. Perfect! Never been disappointed in Zappos service or the shoes I get. I am a 9 EEE which makes my shoe shopping difficult to say the least. Zappos you make my life so much better...thanks.

I have become a fan of Rockport because they look nice (I mean, come on, they're Rockport), comfortable (great sole comfort, plus you can take out and add your own) and durable (I wore these shoes all year round through the four seasons). I purchased my first pair on July of 2009 and I am still wearing them (June 2013), but I am now retiring them for good and getting a new pair. It was a little hard to break them in but that may have been my own fault for not ordering them wider. I was so happy with my first pair (black) that I ordered a second pair (old oxford) some months later that are being retired as well. On a side note I bought two pair of cheaper dressy shoes this year (2013) and they didn't last me even 6 months, so if you're worried about price believe me, they are a good investment. Enjoy!

Bought several shoes from Zappos the last few months and delivery is outstanding. I am extremely satisfied. This is a very comfortable shoes, a bit wide but acceptable. Good grip on slippery grounds. Lightweight, very decent style and looks. No break in necessary for me. Appropriate and comfortable for all day use at the office or for dressy occasion after work. I always trust Rockport in comfort, durability and style. I have their Loafers, Oxfords and Boat shoes. I am now shopping for my old boat shoes replacement.

I recently replaced my second pair of these shoes with a third pair. I ordered the same size as previously, but the new shoes fit tightly and I couldn't wear them. I looked at the label and the new shoes and found that the new shoes were made in Vietnam, while the old shoes were made in the Phillipines. The new shoes are apparently made from a different, narrower pattern. Zappos promptly replaced them with a EE size and they fit well.

Buying these shoes was an accident. I bought these same shoes once in the past and was very unhappy. They caused blisters. The waterproof coating wore off leaving gray patches. However, this pair has been great: no blisters and no peeling. Perhaps Rockport changed something, but I have only had them for a few weeks.

The thing about these shoes and virtually all of the Rockport shoes is the way you don't have to break them in. They support your foot and provide a great deal of comfort to wear them all day. I will ultimately have all Rockport shoes in my closet.

These shoes take an eternity to break in. In fact, I wore it a month straight and it still hasn't broken in completely. It's the most painful pair of dress shoes I've ever worn. It's a shame, because I really like the style of the shoes, but I'll have to return them.
