Great boot. Most chukkas are uncomfortable. These look great, are clearly well-crafted, and are really comfy. For anyone concerned about the upturned toe: it's pretty subtle when you're wearing them and adds an extra hand-made/quality look to them overall.

The shoe is extremely comfortable, but the quality does not justify the price. The heel broke off less than 3 weeks after I received the shoes.

Well made shoes. Good price for American made craftsmanship. I got a half a size too small and regret it because they're a little small but they were the only ones left and I have no patience. Zappos sent them so fast!

What an absolutely great shoe! Comfort, authentic classic vintage styling, superb craftsmanship, and affordable pricing all in one beautiful package -- what's not to love? And if you're already reading this I'm sure I don't have to tell you about Zappos unbeatable personalized service. This company is great!

Great shoes for the price (I got them on sale at Zappos). Expect the back to feel a little wider than expected, but quite comfortable overall.

These boots run true to size bordering on a little long and wide. However the heel is very wide and looked very masculine. It reminded me of the Carson Frye toe, which is kinda weird on a chukka boot.

This is a great shoe. I have never spent this much money on shoes but want to buy American. This shoe looks good and feels good. It did run a tad big but I can wear them all day and my feet feel great. It doesn't have as much of the turned-up toe look as it does in the picture but you can tell it is a quality shoe and so can everyone else.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance made in the USA and Footskins if you like moc type shoes. They are also made in USA.

My feet hate me, and they love these shoes. I usually have to use some custom orthotics with shoes to keep my feet from killing me. These shoes are so comfortable I can wear them all day and then dance all in night in them. I love them, and I am buying my second pair now (Black, I have Brown already). My feet are usually "wide" and I can't say it enough; these feel amazing on my feet.

These are beautiful shoes that get constant compliments. They're also really comfortable after 4-5 days of breaking in. However, the quality is horrible. I wore through the rubber part of the heel in 3 weeks, and the shoes started coming apart in several places. Zappos sent a quick replacement which had a bad piece of leather. Zappos then sent a third pair which only lasted 3 weeks before the heel started coming apart. Not a daily wear shoe; not designed to hold up to walking outdoors. Do not buy unless you can afford monthly trips to a cobbler for repairs.

I was caught a bit off-guard with these shoes. It does not say "Walk-Over" anywhere in the packaging, nor on the shoe insert. It just says "Vintage." But, it's just another brand name for this line of shoes. The shoes are great! Don't let the picture of the raised toe throw you off. It is a flexible forefoot, and the picture does it no justice. The quality of leather is fantastic. Soft, yet sturdy. Insoles are very comfortable. The shoes do have a look of an "old style," but are great with jeans, khakis, etc.

Love these shoes! Got them in brown. In person they don't look quite as broken in as they do in the pictures, but that was not a problem for me. A lot of reviews said these ran small or large, I found them true to size. Very comfortable, very happy to have these.

I got married in these shoes and I still enjoy as an everyday boot. They look great and are easily the most comfortable boot I've ever owned. After about 6 months of frequent wear they still look great and are wearing well. These are worth the extra money - they're clearly well crafted and made with care. Great product.

Great boot. Very comfortable. Runs a half size bigger. I usually wear a 10.5 to 11 and I ordered 10. It was perfect.

I'm glad I didn't listen to the reviewers who said to order down a half-size, as that would've been too small. These fit true to size for me. (I'm between 10.5 and 11 and got these in 11 and they're great -- granted, I like to wear thick wool socks.) They are comfy right out of the box. There are a few small irregularities (typical of hand-made in USA products) but they are gorgeous. I have a lot of shoes (plenty costing more than these) and my wife immediately pronounced these her favorite. (They go great with my dark selvedge jeans.) Well done, USA!

Brands I'd also recommend: Cole Haan, Clarks Originals, etc.

Excellent quality leather, much more attractive retro appearance than illustrated in photos. Toe bend not as pronounced. Overall, a very good value at the price, with the bonus of knowing they are handmade in Pennsylvania.

These are the best shoes I have ever owned. They look fantastic and are super-comfortable. In the past, I always thought dress shoes were supposed to be uncomfortable - which is why I always paid very little money for them. After all, why pay for shoes that hurt your feet, right? Pay a little more the the Vintage Shoe Company shoes. I can wear them all day long and they're more comfy than my sneakers! You get what you pay for, and these shoes are more than worth it.

Be mindful that this particular shoe runs half a size larger than marked. I returned them for half a size smaller and it was a perfect fit; I felt like Cinderella...okay, not really, but it was great all the same when I was able to wear them in full comfort - and they look awesome. The return policy and the ease of the process was great. Just make sure you keep the original box and receipt in this case. It says that you can manage without it, but just to be safe, keep it for a week.

First pair, the left shoe's shank slipped after 2 days and became un-wearable (and with the squeaking sound, unbearable). Zappos was great and got me a new pair in two days. Second pair is fantastic. After about 4 all-day wearings, they'll break in beautifully for you. Super comfortable, timelessly stylish and excellent craftsmanship. One note of caution: these run long. I had to size down 1/2 size and they're more than roomy. If you order your normal size, you'll have to return it.

These are exceptionally comfortable shoes. There is no break in required. I usually take a wide fitting. W or EE is generally what I look for. These shoes looked so good I was prepared to take a punt they would fit okay. They are rated "D" or normal width. Well the size 13 (UK12) might as well be labelled W or EE. More than enough width for my usually EE feet. And it's that comfortable width with the very soft saddle leather that makes these a very pleasant experience to wear. Did I say they look great?

I usually wear a 10.5 with most brands, I ordered a 10 after reading reviews... still way too big - I exchanged for a size 9, these feel about right, and I could and probably will still easily wear a slightly thicker sock with them, they feel very roomy inside in all dimensions. They are comfortable out of the box but don't seem to have much arch support... not really an issue for me. The leather looks great, it's smooth and soft, but I'm sure it'll gain some character as they break-in. They don't look nearly as rustic as the pictures when you first get them. The style is just what i was looking for, something that falls somewhere between a dress shoe and a more rugged boot that will work with casual clothes and with work/dress clothes.
