I put these shoes on when they showed up and my girlfriend loved them with the jeans that I had on at the time. However, I bought them for the office of course, and they look great with slacks. That said, I usually wear size 11.5, and these in 11.5, color black, felt a little cramped in the toe area. I went back to Zappos to buy size 12, and alas, they were out of stock. Another reviewer mentioned stiff leather, but mine are comfortable, not too stiff. Even if they were stiff, there is an old shoe salesperson trick of working the edge of the leather to soften it up if necessary, rather than discount an otherwise nice pair of shoes.

This is actually a follow up to my last review. I have worn these for a week or so. Here's the skinny: I returned the first pair after they started making a really annoying "woosh" sound. After a while, I figured out the shoe was defective. Zappos was kind enough to return them even though I had worn them. Although the shoes look nice, they smell like chemicals. I have worn these for a week now and it hasn't gone away. These look really cool so I hope it gets better. Lastly, these shoes do not breath. Its like wearing a plastic bag on your foot. Your feet will sweat. These aren't bad for the price. I paid $70 for them on sale. If you don't want to deal with the problems listed above, buy them. If you can spend a little more, go with a better shoe.

First of all Zappos is an awesome store to deal with. I have purchased dress slacks, jeans, shoes, if there were any problems they fix it. Great people! I purchased this shoe in black and I am ordering a pair in brown, a very smart looking and comfortable shoe. Dress or casual.

Great shoe. comfy, sturdy classy and still a bit edgy. Couldn't be happier, when I felt apprehensive toward the fact I needed a dress shoe these fit the bill to a T.

I bought these shoes for my husband as a birthday gift. The first pair he ordered were a 9½. The shoes were a bit tight. The shoes were returned and a size 10 was ordered. They fit perfectly on my husband's feet. Overall he thought the shoes to be stylish and comfortable. They were a perfect birthday gift for him.

I purchased a pair of these shoes in tan last year and loved them so I recently purchased another pair in black. Very well made and a great looking shoe for business or casual.

Great shoes; great price! I don't know what others were talking about when they wrote about a distinctive oil smell when their shoes arrived. I had two pairs shipped to me and only one had a very, very faint smell and after a day out of the box it had dissipated. Definitely go with a 1/2 size larger. This too was confusing since half of write ins said go larger with the others saying go smaller. I had to send back the first pair for a larger size and Zappos was great to deal with...no questions, just good old fashioned customer service.

This is a pretty good pair of shoes for the price. I get compliments on them whenever I wear them. They are a little lighter in color than I thought. They are more of a distressed gray, than black. That was kind of a surprise, but I make them work.

I love these shoes! They look great with dress pants and look awesome with jeans as well. I have gotten multiple compliments on them throughout the day at work when wearing them. I am very happy with this purchase, I might have to buy all the other colors as well. The size seemed pretty close to my normal size. Depending on brand I am either an 8½ or a 9, in these I was the smaller size. They were a little tight at first, but obviously after wearing them and breaking them in, they fit nicely now.

Ordered these to replace some far-too-plain black loafers. I have been very pleased with that decision. They get many compliments, especially with my bright blue shoelaces from Hook and Albert. They started off perfectly comfortable, and having added some insoles, they are some of the most comfy shoes I've ever owned. I work retail, so I'm on my feet all day long. Our floors are not padded, and good shoes are a must. These fit the bill quite nicely. I should note that my feet are about the most standard size possible (10.5 standard width), so fitting is rarely an issue.

I really like the style of this shoe - shiny brown leather with the classic wingtip. The first time I wore these to work (with navy dress slacks) I received 5 compliments from the ladies I work with. I'm on my feet all day, so the hard bottom sole definitely takes its toll by the end of the day, but overall an excellent shoe - I'm very happy with them. And reasonably priced.

The Ethin's are amazing! They truly are comfortable too; when you walk in them they make a cushion type of sound which speaks to the comfort level of these shoes. They are very sharp and catch the eye, I have had numerous grown men ask me where I got these shoes. I'm actually about to order another pair of these soon.

This is the best Steve Madden that I have bought. The shoes ran a size small, I am a 12 had to get the 13. Thank you, Zappos, for the free return. The 13 was a great fit hugged the ankle great and was easy to break in. The cut of the shoe is very nice. This review is based off the 13.

Great shoes with looks to kill. The grey shoes are a bit more "two-toned" and are a shade lighter than the pictures suggest. Not a complaint as it's a nice look. It was simply a pleasant surprise upon delivery.

I was skeptical buying shoes online because I like to try them on first, but these shoes are as comfortable as they look. They are great for casual as well as dress attire. Excellent buy, especially for the price.

Love these shoes. Just the right blend of classy and comfort. They look great with jeans, plain khakis, or even my nicer dress pants. The finish on the shoe is a great balance of not too shiny but still dressy. Gave them a four for comfort only because the back of the ankle area is a bit stiff on first wearing, but I expect this to soften over time as the material loosens up a bit. Excellent shoe for the price!

Great shoes! I have consistently worn a size 10.5 in all brands of dress shoes for years. My feet were swimming in the 10.5, and I exchanged them for size 10. The 10s fit perfect. As noted by others, there is a slight petroleum smell the first few times you wear them, but it fades quickly. The shoes were slightly stiff at first; but not uncomfortable, and they broke in quickly.

Got these as a Christmas gift for my husband but I couldn't wait to see how they fit or if he liked them. Turns out I was smart to do that. He loved the style and look of the shoes.. but they bothered him in the back so they are going back. Back to the drawing board.

Like other reviews, after a day of wearing them, the heel and collar of the shoes did begin to eat at my ankles and heels. This can be fixed by kneading the collar of the shoe with you hands. Its a quick fix. The shoe is super stylish. The quality is awesome (except for the heel issue). It has a boot type sole but doesn't look chunky. This is a great dress shoe for winter. I recommend these.
