These are beautiful shoes! A classic Oxford style that's just feminine enough. I got the cognac color, which looks great with jeans or with tights and a dress. My feet are a bit wide, not enough for wide-width shoes but enough that dress shoes sometimes give me trouble, and these were a little tight across the arch at first. But after a few wears the leather has stretched and they're very comfortable, with a nicely padded insole.

These are awesome shoes. I originally ordered a size 6 and 6.5. I was surprised when they were too tight as I usually wear a 6. The 7's were the best fit. I would definitely go up a size. Maybe it's just me. I have to say, I have never put on shoes that didn't have to be broken in. I bought these for work. I stand on my feet all day on marble floors and these shoes are the best. My feet didn't hurt. No break in time. The first day I wore them, I had them on for over 8 hours with out any problems. I am getting a second pair!

I have these shoes in cognac and they fit wonderfully.They are very comfortable and the leather does not look cheap. I love the color. The heal on my right foot slips a little because my right foot is slightly smaller than my left foot. I want the black too but I have Christmas presents to buy for others so maybe after Christmas I can splurge again on myself. I bought some similar looking shoes from Shoemint but they were horribly uncomfortable and I had to send them back. I was so happy to find these shoes and you can't go wrong with Clarks.

The shoes are classy and quite comfortable to wear. I work in an office so this type of shoe goes with a variety of outfits without sacrificing our feet. Great!

Perfect. I'd been shopping around to replace my beaten up Nine West/Boutique 9 "Rinna" pair of laceless Oxfords for a while now and these have more than exceed my expectations. They are perfect right out of the box: comfortable, gorgeous and exactly what I wanted, not too pointy, not stubby at the toe, chic and smart. So happy I didn't settle for something I was only "so-so" on for a cheaper price.

Very cute and comfortable shoe. I wear them to work and I am on my feet all day. The heel slips some so I put in a gel pad for the ball of the foot and that took care of the problem. (a trick I learned from a shoe salesman long ago).

These were exactly the shoes I've been looking for but sadly they fit too small for me. Style is very nice and wish they came in a 10-1/2.

Clarks do not disappoint! Exactly the Oxford style I was looking for. I have a wider foot, so finding a sleek shoe in this style has been difficult, but this one fits and looks great!

I loved everything about these shoes except how they looked on me. I have cankles...not very flattering if you have thick ankles. The 7 1/2 I ordered were just a little on the snug side as well...I think an 8 would have been perfect. So while I am returning them I love Zappos customer service; in my book there is none better!

Before I even got the first shoe on, I could tell how comfortable these are! They are a little roomier on top than most, but this works out well for me since I have high arches. They're a bit snug at first (my feet are a bit wide) but since they're leather I'm counting on them breaking in really well. Quality shoes, comfortable, gorgeous, exactly what I was looking for.

After looking at many oxford styles, I chose the Clarks Charlie Brogue. It has the classic wing tip styling and the color is versatile. The heel is not as flat as other oxfords so it doesn't look dumpy. It is a good between seasons style as an alternative to clogs or boots.

I love these shoes. They are extremely stylish. I did notice the same problem as the other reviewer. It feels a little wide at the top and it does have the gap. But I can live with that. These shoes look so gorgeous in both colors, that I bought one pair in each color. I almost can't wait for fall so I can wear them every day. They look fabulous with skinny jeans. I highly recommend this shoe.

Nice shoes but too long to my liking. Cognac color is rich. Very comfortable with cushioned bed and good quality leather.Returning it because it was long and pointy in front which I didn't like.

This shoe is unbelievably comfortable. The only problem I have with it is that it's wide across the top of the foot; the laces pretty much come together, and there is a slight "bow out" on the collar by the ankle. The shoe looks fantastic with straight leg jeans and can be worn with skinny jeans too. The shoe looks shining when you enlarge it online, but it's not as bad as it looks. For the price the shoe should be absolutely perfect (these aren't) but I've had a difficult time trying to find a good looking and fitting oxford. I think I can live with the imperfections (this time), so I'll probably end up keeping these. I wear a 9.5 in Franco Sartos, but these fit like a glove in 8.5.

So stylish! I've gotten a number of compliments on these shoes. They are a little snug, but should stretch out over time. If you are inbetween sizes, definitely go for the larger size.

I had originally ordered a 6.5 (my usual size) but it was a tad bit too small. A half size up was perfect after exchanging. These shoes are really comfortable and can be dressed up or dressed down. Perfect and versatile. The leather is breathable and has a vintage worn look to it. The color is slightly less red than pictured and a beautiful deep milk chocolate color. Overall, I would highly recommend these shoes. They are great quality and I had a great customer service experience.

They looked cute out of the box and were incredibly comfortable right away. The problem was it looked like a jazz shoe. It was too long and pointy for my taste and as others pointed out, the area around the ankle is too big and sticks out. I am normally a size 7 and these fit true to size. If only the style were slightly different, I would keep these. The leather was beautiful and soft. But I do admit the smell of the leather was awful. I own a ton of leather products and this is definitely the worst I have smelled. I had ordered these in black along with the Sperry Ashbury in black patent and ended up keeping the latter.

Love this shoe! Have gotten many compliments so far. It is true to size, but as other reviewers have commented, the sides are a little wide which causes your heel to slip up in the back. If you go to any shoe repair store, they can give you foam inserts to put under the tongue of the shoe to keep your foot in place. Much more comfortable than heel inserts and only $5!

There's a gap at the top of the quarter that just ruins the line of the shoe. Probably nobody will notice, unless they pause to look at your otherwise cute brogues. Other than that, it's a great shoe. Softer leather, with good support. Very comfortable. It's a real toss-up on whether I'll send these back.

I loved the look and quality of these shoes, but the opening is so wide that they slipped up and down on my heels. They are the correct size, but they gape open around the ankle. I really hate that they didn't work out, and I am returning them.

I bough these and Born Arlettas at the same time. I usually like Clarks and Indigo by Clarks, but I was really surprised that they cognac leather looked cheap! It didn't even look like real leather to me. Sad because the style was cute, but I'm not going to spend over $100 on shoes that look like faux leather! The Born ones were very cute too and looked to be of better quality, on the other hand, so those were the ones I kept.
