This is a terrific high quality shoe. It's very well made with nice detailing. It has a retro look that goes with jeans or a suit or anything in-between. I normally wear a size ten, but had to reorder this shoe in a 9.5.

Great looking boot, I loved it until, after about a month of wear (every other day or so) the rubber tread began de-laminating from the heel. Usually in a boot like this the heel is constructed of built up layers of stacked leather and that is what this appeared to be. Unfortunately the stacking material here is little more than cardboard which of course falls apart if it gets wet. The glue didn't fail the substrate did. For a company like Florsheim to reduce the quality of materials to this degree is unsettling and most disappointing. Fortunately Zappos came through and honored my return with full credit. Bravo Zappos! The only place to buy shoes.

I do not like dress shoes, they are silly looking and would not be very functional when the zombie apocalypse happens. However, these boots are awesome. They are "dressy" enough to wear in court with any suit(I am a lawyer) but they feel like real work boots. Well made- solid construction. I love them. These are the best boots ever. If the zombie apocalypse were to occur and I was wearing a silly suit, as I often have to do, I would be so happy I have these boots on so I can run, kick in doors,jump fences and stomp on zombie heads in order to survive...despite being in a uncomfortable suit.

Now I love Zappos.com. I thought that I would love these boots, who would not? Look at them. These boots look even better in person than online. I normally wear a 9EE or 9EEE, so I got a 9½. They fit beautifully. These shoes will look great with slacks or jeans.

I am loving these boots! They have style, the chestnut leather is really nice and the comfort is great right out of the box. These are going to be one of my staple casual and dressed up, but not formal, fall/winter/spring shoe of mine. Two other reviews mark these as running a full size larger. For me it is just half a size larger than marked. I am a true 10½ but due to the other reviews I ordered smaller sizes. I bought both 9½ and 10 just to be on the safe side. I am glad I did because the size 10 is perfect and 9½ is uncomfortably tight. The 9½ hurt my heel while walking and felt tight all around.

I purchased the Blue Suede Boots. I normally wear a 13, had to go down a size. Perfect fit in a 12. Soft suede and shaped to my foot quickly very comfortable to wear. I love these shoes. Sharp Wing tip dress shoe meets boot. Looks awesome with jeans.

A very nice looking shoe that takes a while to break in. Very Downton Abbey. Traction is good to excellent on most textured surfaces but slippery on smoother ones. The soles are hard rubber-like treads, good for tramping around the countryside but kind of jarring on pavement. One heel is coming off already after wearing just a few times but that could be just a fluke. A little glue and they should be okay for the next five years or so.

I originally bought these in a black size 10 and as everyone has said they do run large so I then bought a 9.5 and they fit perfectly, but then the first time I wore them the heel fell off! I really loved the way these boots looked so wanted to order them again even though the quality is now in question for sure, they still look expensive. Well black in a 9.5 was now sold out so I got them in chestnut leather. So glad I did the chestnut looks even more expensive yet more casual. I really love the way they look and feel and hope they last a long time (crossing my fingers though).

I love the burgundy suede boot! It looks good with black cord pants and a matching top with a dark blue or black blazer for a great result. The boot instantly felt like I had worn it for years, and will be a favorite for years to come. I loved it so much that I ordered the blue suede!

First of all, these were at least a full size larger than expected. I ordered a half size smaller than what I usually wear and they were still huge. Second, I ordered the navy color, and I was very disappointed that they were far darker in person - almost black. So these will be returned. I really like the style however, so may reorder them in a smaller size and different color.

I have had these shoes for a few weeks now, wearing them 4-5 days per week. They are awesome! The leather is very soft and you can tell it is good quality. It is not stiff nor does it have a cheap shine to it. They are very comfortable for all day use and I have made some good long walks in them as well with a good experience. The one minor negative I have is that it is slightly difficult to get my feet in the boots. I have to open the laces up about as far as they can go. No big deal. They are the right size once my foot gets in there - not too big and not too small. I would definitely purchase again, and in fact am considering purchasing the black pair as well.

Great looking pair of boots. Have received several compliments. They are sometimes a little uncomfortable, probably because they still need to be worn in and softened up.

These ran a full size large so do yourself a favor and order small. They are a great style and construction! These were a little stiff at first especially around the ankle area, but eventually broke in and are very comfortable.

I was skeptical when I first ordered this boot, nut when I opened the box I was pleased. It's comfortable right out the box no break in needed. They do run a 1/2 size to big though.

When I wear these shoes, I feel like a superstar. Women fawn over the stylish yet brutish nature of these foot covers. They run true to size and are comfortable to wear, even on the first day.

When I saw these shoes, it was love at first sight. Excellent style and quality for only this cost. This ain't your grandpa's Florsheims. Each shoe comes with its own fabric pouch. As usual, Zappos has made me a very happy shoe freak.

These boots are fantastic - the quality of the leather is excellent. I searched far and wide for a pair of wing tip boots but most were low quality or well out of my price range. Love these!

I purchased these boots for my dad for Christmas and he absolutely loved them! He said they are comfortable, stylish and go with everything from his jeans to his suits for church. They have a lot of support and are good for standing and walking. Thanks Florsheim, I'm gonna get him another color for his birthday!

Love these boots. Comfortable and great looking. I have a high instep, which makes these a bit difficult to put on. That's more of a problem with me though - not the boot. It is something to keep in mind though.
