Great looking shoe but did not work for my foot. Remember, quality shoes are made from lasts designed to fit a particular type of foot. I have a high instep, so this shoe just did not fit comfortable for me as it is made for people with long, narrow feet. Only reason it is not 5 stars across the board, is it did not work with my foot.

The most uncomfortable shoes I've ever owned. I've had them for 6 months and the leather simply won't break in. They haven't given at all.

The ideal shoe for your workplace, speaking or networking event, dinner party, and life. I had an upcoming speaking event and was in desperate need for a new style that was comfortable for standing and walking and still gave off that professional look/feel when paired with jeans and a blue or black blazer. As usual, Zappos delivered the shoes in time for the event, and the shoes fit perfect to size. This was my first pair of Allen-Edmonds and certainly won't be my last. Pricey- yes; worth it- absolutely. I've had these shoes for about 8 months and they've held up incredibly well through all the seasons in upstate NY. Again, amazing shoe and worth every penny for the modern, professional worker.

The best pair of shoes I own without a doubt. The build quality is impeccable and the shoes are absolutely beautiful. They broke in nicely after I wore them a few times. They're so nice I was married in them!

Fit great. I was able to break them in two days, and then wear them comfortably non-stop for a 3 day convention. Was told by a stranger that they look "spectacular," and I agreed with him.

Order the right size. Based on some other reviews I ordered a half size longer and one size wider, and had to return the shoes. I ordered my correct size 8.5N and the fit was perfect. My foot almost "pops" into the shoe. It is light and feels nearly custom-made to my feet right out of the box. I wear thin wool socks (SmartWool) and the comfort is great even the first day. I did not want to take these off at the end of the day, they are just so good looking and comfortable. This is an office shoe, probably not good for long walks on vacation. The sole is leather, so I expect it to take a few weeks to break in. This is a finely crafted shoe from quality materials. I have owned other good shoes (Mephisto) but this is a better shoe made from better materials. It should last me many years, offsetting the higher cost of buying cheaper shoes that cannot be re-heeled. If you've never treated yourself to a truly fine shoe, this is one to consider -classic. It is really a beautiful shoe that is a noticeable step up from the $100-$200 shoes I used to buy. You can definitely tell the difference and won't question the higher cost once you experience these.

A little stiff at first, but after a few wears the leather softens up and starts to feel really nice. After a few wears they have become pretty comfortable dress shoes. These shoes look great with dress pants or with some dark jeans. Keep them polished and in shoe trees and these will not only last a long time, but will also get a lof of looks and compliments. Very happy with the investment. I love being in a room with other guys wearing clunky, unpolished, cracked square toe slip ons. Great lace ups like these will give you a sophisticated refined look.

Brands I'd also recommend: Grenson, Loake

First time I spent this much on a pair of shoes and first time buying through Zappos. Don't regret either decision. Love the shoes. As soon as I held them I knew I had a quality shoe. And Zappos service was fantastic. First shoe I got was not wide enough. They could not have made the return process any easier. I love talking with their customer service people. I will never buy shoes at a store or anywhere except Zappos.

Allen-Emonds cost more but provide excellent value, particularly in the Northeast where e soles must withstand road salt and harsh winters. My last pair lasted many years.

The design and style are outstanding but they are hard to put on due to the heel. The heel seems to arch forward not allowing my feet to slip into the shoes. I have to use a shoe horn. For a size E, they seem a little narrow.

Brands I'd also recommend: I only buy Allen-Edmonds.

This was my first Allen Edmonds and perhaps my last. I ordered the shoe in a 10.5, after seeing a Master Fitter at an AE store. The shoe seemed a little roomy, so I went back to the AE store for some advice, and even tried on a 10D and 10E. In the end, the Master Fitter suggested I use a smartfeet insole in the 10.5D (I have flat feet), and it seemed okay when I left the store. As the days have gone on, my feet and knees have been beyond painful, and it seems to be getting worse. Without the insoles, I couldn't even go 1 hour in these shoes. Nice waste of money.

I tried Allen-Edmonds for the second time and will not again. Zappos is great! I will continue to use them but have given up on Allen-Edmonds. These are so uncomfortable. They will now sit on my shoe rack and collect dust.
