Before I put these shoes on, I was impressed with how cute they were, but it took about one second after putting my foot in the first one, to get it OFF! Really tight toe box, very loose heel, and guess what: the laces are nonfunctional! So if you're planning on an oxford that you can lace up to fit your foot, forget it. I have narrow, flexible feet, and it's really important to me to have lace-ups that lace (same thing with so-called "adjustable" Velcro straps that are actually made to be used in only the position that they came in). Another thing that may escape your attention when looking at these on the website is that the shoe is cut very low, not like a traditional oxford at all. It amazes me that none of the reviews I looked at mentioned any of these extremely pertinent points. I was also surprised at how many people liked the shoes. I ordered them in a 9 (my usual size) and a 9.5 to be sure I would get the correct size, and they ran really large except for the toe box. The shoes are stiff and very uncomfortable. But they are very nice-looking, and the color (the light pinkish tan) is very pretty. If they fit you, lucky you!

Love these! But I had to return them for an 8 1/2. I always buy 9 but these were too big. I can't wait to get them back in the correct size.

I usually wear a size 9, even 9.5 in some athletic shoes, but after reading the reviews I got an 8.5 and it's the right size -- roomy, even. I love the boyish look in women's proportions. I'll be wearing this with a tailored suit to look professional at work. It could have more arch support and a little tighter craftsmanship, but it's a good value and a great dress shoe.

These stylish brogues are a little fashion-forward for Bass in that they have a very sleek profile (would easily look great with skinny jeans or skirts). They don\'t have a chunky sole or built-in arch support, but they have a cushy rubber bottom that absorbs shock well and have enough room in them that your feet aren\'t crushed, so you\'re not sacrificing much comfort for style. I ordered my usual 7.5 and they fit great with thinnish socks. I highly recommend these!

These are super cute, though the color is a darker brown in person. They were comfy right away, though they do slip off my heels easily (as other reviewers noted). They don't offer much support, so I might try orthotics in them.

This is a great basic oxford and it looks good with skinny jeans or a tights and a dress. Also, it doesn't make my foot look like I'm wearing clown shoes, the way some oxfords do. They gave me blisters the first few miles I walked in them, but now they fit beautifully.

These runs true to size and I found that the toe box was very adequate for the old toes. Oxblood is more of a burgundy color. These are nice shoes, solid quality, worth the money!

I just got these and they are fabulous! The Olof is perfectly distressed enough and looks like they are true vintage. The fit is perfect. They are worth every penny. I will say that I also ordered half a size smaller because of the reviews and the two shoes looked different. The smaller size was darker and had a Bass tag on the side. The one I kept (6½) was the one in the picture.

This shoe looks fabulous on my daughter (a polished 15 year old)! She wears it with jeans, khaki's and cords. Our only complaint is that it does come in better colors like chocolate brown and grey or black. Love it, though!

These are fantastic shoes! I am always on the look for good women's loafers or oxfords as they are my kind of style. I follow prep codes to the T. The look is on almost every model; male and female. You cannot go wrong with a wingtip!

Really cute shoe- sometimes I have to take a chance on a shoe that doesn't come in an extra-wide width, which is what I normally take. Ordered this in Cognac, size 7W; it wasn't nearly wide enough for my feet, so it's going back. The color was a bit darker than I anticipated. It's definitely more of a caramel-y color than I expected. Thank goodness Zappos makes it so easy to return things that don't fit!

Love these shoes. I purchased the suede for a trip to Europe. I was nervous about wearing them for a first time and walking all day, but I had absolutely no problems. They ended up being my 'go to' shoes on the trip b/c they were so comfortable. Cute with skinny/straight leg jeans.

These are excellent quality shoes. I ordered the brown leather pair. Make note of the fact that the shoe is less yellow/orange than it appears on screen and that the sole is dark colored, not as light as it appears on screen. I wanted a pair of quality oxfords to wear with skirts and dresses and jeans, and I certainly found them. The shoes fit well. I'm an 8, and I ordered an 8. I think that they're a tiny bit wide in the heel area, but I just make certain to pull the laces tight. I know that my ankles are a bit narrow. The shoes aren't super masculine, but they're not frilly 'fashion oxfords' either. They're sort of unisex, but are prettier than men's oxfords. This is my first pair of high quality oxfords, and I hope that they last for years. If they last for a long time, they will be worth the price.

I really, really love these shoes! They fit great (I am a size 9) and look great. A nice pair of men's wear inspired wing tips. The color shown on line is darn close to the color live, in-person. Glad I bought them!!

Nerd-chic, very cute!!! These are not as cranberry red as they look here, more of a maroon red which I personally prefer. Glad I read other reviews regarding Bass's size/width, ordered an 8W (usually a 7.5) and they're actually perfect, though I can usually get away with a medium width. These are a little stiff out of the box, but I feel like they'll soften up nicely.

Good construction. I like them because the stitching around the sole is real, not just stamped rubber. I wish I could keep them but they are too small, and the next size up is sold out.

Just received these and absolutely love them! I chose these over similar styles from other brands, as they don't come up as far on the foot, toward the ankle - this makes your ankles look slimmer and has an overall more feminine effect (great for wearing with tights). I have a problem with shoes rubbing on the back of my ankles and these sit a bit lower, so that won't be a problem (not so low that they slip off the heels). I bought the cognac which is a bit darker than a true cognac and the photo on this site makes them look lighter than they really are- they're much nicer in person. I have wide feet and run 8.5 - 9. I got the 8.5 W and they're perfect! If you're new to Bass shoes, they run really narrow, but these are not as narrow as Bass sandals tend to be.
