I was looking for a casual shoe that wasn't flat on the bottom like some Nike's, Vans, Converse... Maybe I'm getting too old (25 yo male) but these flat shoes hurt my lower back and knees. These were surprisingly so comfortable! Sizes run large.

The white soles are not made of hard rubber; more like a synthetic foam material you'd find in flip flops, seriously. They get dirty really, extraordinarily quickly and they're much softer than typical sperry soles. The shoes are definitely meant to be worn during a dry summer day at a beach or something. Otherwise, the look is fantastic.

These are great comfortable shoes. I have two pair, gray and blue. My only suggestion would be to put some support in the back above the heel area. When putting shoe on the back area collapses and at times is a struggle to put on. I would buy more.

This is a fabulous shoe: It's stylish and comfortable, melding the lightness and comfort of a Top-Sider with a slightly more solid, dressy oxford look.

Great shoe, extremely comfortable. Heads up: back part of the shoe behind the heel is just thin material (no support but extremely comfortable).

These are super light, fairly durable sole, comfortable canvas/denim type upper, these are great travel shoes and everyday shoes. They are great with shorts, denim or pants, and are comfortable enough to walk around in. One thing I will mention is that while they are well-cushioned, they are not very stable - I feel like my foot rolls a bit in them. That makes them slightly less comfortable than they should be, for Sperrys.

Very comfortable, look great, sizing seems 1/2 size larger, not much arch support. Forefoot has lots of cushioning.

The white soles get dirty really, extraordinarily quickly and theyre much softer than typical sperry soles. And the leather creases immediately. They look cool like that, but be aware that they won't look a thing like te picture here.

Really a great summer shoe. I go sockless with jeans, chinos or even shorts. Unique and slightly more rugged than the traditional Top-Siders. The leather is going to wear beautifully. Not perfect, so I can't give it 5 stars, but a great value and look for the money.

These shoes are great for the summer. Though you need to maintain a lot in order to keep them clean. Also, the foam heel feels great but I'm not sure how long they are going to last.

I loved everything about this shoe and took them to China with me for a two month trip. One very significant issue (and such a surprise given who makes them): they are treacherous on a wet surface. I was literally scared to walk in them on wet concrete or marble. I bought a stick-on sole and heel guard to overcome that problem but it is just a little strange.

I have a pair of the blue ones that I really loved in the store. However, when my friends saw them from afar, they thought they were made out of denim. They're really comfortable and I like the style when they're not perceived as "jean shoes."

This shoe is too wide in the heel, and since the leather is floppy, your heel slips up and down as you walk. This makes the shoe basically unwearable. That is too bad because its a terrific looking shoe! I have a pair of Sperry loafers that fit great, too. This pair gets returned. Unless you have a double-wide heel, be careful with these.

The shoe is really good-looking, but the fit is all off, very funky fit with a long narrow toe and very loose heel.

The Leather scratches and marks real easily and creases easy as well, makes the shoe look worn in after only wearing for a day or so, depending on your style preference that's a good or bad thing. Personally I like the worn in look and the aged leather look. The soles are very soft, made out of foam, very comfortable but already starting to wear down, probably wont last as long as a normal sole would but the comfort factor makes up for that. My one problem with the shoe is how large it is, it runs almost and entire size larger than other Sperrys. I was excited when I got mine and immediately wore then outside, the foam white soles became dirty immediately so by the time I realized the shoes were a little to large it was too late to return. Also didn't know that the insole is also about 1.5 inches thick so it makes me a little taller than usual. If you take out the insole then the shoe feels at least two sizes too big. The piece of leather at the heel also stretches quite a bit and doesn't really go back to its original form. Overall I'd give this shoe a 3.5.

The shoe is very smart, but not very practical. The softness of the leather makes it difficult to put on at the heel. The brown leather also "bleeds" a bit so don't wear white socks or they will soon be brown. Sperry is my brand of choice but I am disappointed with this particular model.

I wish I would have read the reviews before purchasing these shoes. They are indeed a full size larger than what I normally order. Unfortunately, I only went a half size smaller on the exchange. Still too big. I am afraid that if I go to 8½ then they will be too narrow around the arch of my foot.

Most my shoes are 9.5 M. The 9.5 M Top-Sider Boat Oxford was way too long. The 9 was still too big. The 8.5 fit lengthwise but was too narrow. So sad, I really wanted this shoe.

I cannot speak highly enough about these shoes. they are perfect in every way. Incredibly stylish, COMFORTABLE, and pairs well with everything. The shoe itself is sturdy and durable. They should be in every man's wardrobe.

I bought these for my boyfriend and he loves them! They are just a tad bit dressy. He works at an art gallery and wears them with jeans and a button up shirt just about every day. I think these are really good looking without being over the top -- perfect for a younger guy!

Just got these shoes for my boyfriend and he loves them! They look cool, a little bit dressy but not like they're trying to hard. He wears them to work/classes all the time. I think they're a great almost-adult shoe (like, 20-somethings) because they're polished but cool. He likes the support so far. He is usually a 12.5-13 but I ordered a 12 and they are just right, size down!
