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.

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.

Freakishly good shoes. I fell in love with these shoes on the site and had to have them. Once I put them on my love only grew. These shoes are gorgeous. The walnut stain is a thing of beauty. The feel of the calfskin is like a slipper. I don't want to take these shoes off.

Great shoe - worth the money and American made. Zappos speed is amazing. I will be buying another pair without the detail on the cap.

It\'s like it\'s designed to make your foot look short and stubby. The part with the laces is usually long, and the cap on the toe is unusually short. Put it next to similar styles from other makers, and the same size shoe will look much shorter and stubbier in the Fifth Avenue. Also really dug into my foot in an odd place, in all sizes I tried.

Allen-Edmonds are simply the best men's shoes available. They trend towards dressy styles, and the suede cap-toe shoe is one of them. I think suede is a great alternative to black dress shoes for Fall wear. These were ordered in my regular size and were easy to wear right out of the box. They also can be refurbished to new condition with their "Recrafting" service. Unfortunately A-E shoes are rarely discounted.
