Great looking shoes, the fit is perfect and there is barely any break in period. Overall I am very happy with my purchase. Just a few things to nit pick. The stitching around the toe is a little fuzzy and where the leather meets the sole, there are a few imperfections. Not sure if this is a flaw with my specific pair of shoes or a flaw in the design. Really you'd only notice if you were inspecting the from 6 inches away. Overall a great shoe for the price.

These shoes smell horrible and the leather appears to be of very low quality.

By far these are the worst quality footwear I have ever held in my hand. Zappos did accept their return with no problem and for that I am ever grateful. Over all cheesy.

I purchased these shoes for an 'Upscale Casual' event, figuring they were a good bridge shoe - one that could go with both formal and informal attire. They fit the bill well; they look good, have held up very well after 3 months, are far more comfortable than any other dress shoe I've worn (though that in itself isn't saying much), and it was good to find a dress shoe that wasn't smooth-soled. There wasn't any odor coming from my shoes, so I'm unsure what smell the previous reviewers are citing, but my only real nitpick with the Evanders is that of comfort. They're fine for the first few hours you're wearing them, but after that you begin to feel just how hard the sole is, so I wholeheartedly recommend getting some cushioned replacement soles for this shoe. With all that said, as a whole the Evanders are quite good - they're stylish, versatile, durable, and relatively inexpensive as dress shoes go.

I bought these shoes because I needed something for a semi-formal event but didn't want to break the bank on dedicated dress shoes. Firstly, I was expecting these to have that familiar stiff, hard, uncomfortable feeling that every dress shoe has, but these are actually really comfortable. It's difficult to tell by just looking at the insole, because it doesn't look as though it's heavily padded (and in all honesty they aren't), but these shoes are still very supportive - I've gone through an entire day in these without any discomfort at all. The Evanders are also very versatile, you can dress them up or down and they'll work with pretty much anything. I like how the leather isn't super-glossy, but has just enough sheen to them to give the pair a certain upscale appeal. They also fit true-to-size, I wear a 13 and they fit perfectly. There's just enough room so your feet have space, but you're not slipping and sliding around in them. Another thing I noticed after my first day of wearing them is that the break-in period is practically nonexistent. I'm used to wearing combat boots, and for the first few weeks those feel like you have cinder blocks attached to your feet. In these I could move around freely with little to no resistance the moment I put them on. With regard to the previous reviewers stating that these shoes smell bad...I'm not sure what they're talking about. My pair smell fine, just the standard 'new shoe' smell. An excellent shoe - this is my first pair of Steve Maddens, and they won't be my last.

These boots are terrible. If you like comfort and quality, don't waste your time ordering. Leather is cheap, fit is wide and runs 1/2 size bigger. Not even sure if I'll waste my time exchanging.

No issue with smell as others have experienced. Super style and comfy boot with good traction for winter. I got both brown and black. After 30 days of use practically everyday one of the seams on the wing tip started to separate. Repaired by local cobbler. I get the impression that Steve Madden are style shoes that are cheaply made, but seems acceptable for the price.

I bought a pair of these last August and I just wanted to do a follow up. When I first got them, I was impressed. Very little break in time, fit was perfect, and they look fantastic. The only flaw was some slight fraying on one shoe around one of the brogueing holes, almost too minor to see. After wearing these for about a month and a half, I put them away for the winter. Fast forward to last weekend when I took these on vacation. In the span of about 4 hours, half of which was spent sitting still on a plane flight, that minor fraying that I had mentioned earlier had turned into a 2 inch tear, ripping the brogueing in apart where the shoe creases when you bend your toe. The brogueing holes were coming apart like a zipper. To the point, I have never seen a shoe fail so catastrophically before. I would have a hard time trusting the Steve Madden brand again given this experience.

Very comfortable, attractive boots. They can be worn with dressy or casual clothes. The soles are great for Midwestern winters.

This shoe feels and looks GREAT! I love the style and I thought the higher top may be awkward (looks kinda 1920's) but its very very unassuming under a pair of slacks. So glad I found them.

Digging these boots so far. Durable and only took a few days of wearing them to get them adjusted to my feet. They run a little wide at top but just a little. And I probably have chicken legs, so that might account for some of it.

These are excellent boots. The tan leather color is really nice looking. The quality seems high and they really seem comparable to boots that are much more expensive. I would highly recommend these boots to anyone.

This is a great pair of shoes. I get compliments wherever I go. They go well with both formal and casual pants. The little discomfort (or digging as some people put it) one feels at the front around the ankle area goes away quickly. Nothing to worry about. I like them and wear them all the time. They are my favorite winter shoes!

First pair had uneven tanning and a pinhole in the leather. I returned for another pair which just arrived today. This pair I could tell was returned by someone else, but I found nothing wrong with them other than they felt too large for a 10.5 . . . returning this pair for 10's. Service from Zappos is very quick.

These boots are by far my most favorite pair of shoes to wear. I always receive compliments when I have them on. The boots fit well and are very comfortable to wear however my only complaint for them would be the smell of the leather. It's horrible! The smell is like a combination of gasoline and really bad breath, that never goes away now matter how much you air them out.

I've had these for about three months, wearing them about three days per week. They look nice and fit well, but after this short time, have literally started coming apart at the seams. There is a short, vertical seam on the inside of the shoe, just behind the ball of the big toe. You can see it in the close-ups. The left shoe has started falling apart at this point and along the adjoining horizontal seem below it. I can see the same thing beginning on the right shoe. After just a few months of norma office wear, a few days a week, I would not recommend this shoe.

Good looking shoe for fall/winter. Tough finding this style in stores or under $200. Order by your regular size (e.g. Fit 10 in timberland boots, get 11).

I shopped long and hard for a boot like this that would not break the bank. Comfortable, true to size, nice leather, easy to walk in, these boots are a great deal and go with everything: jeans, khakis, suits, etc. You will not be disappointed.

I love these boots. They are super stylish, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on them. I was worried about the potential for that "gasoline smell", but nothing. Totally normal. Plan on buying a 1/2 size smaller. My boots don't quite fit as snugly as I'd like. I wanted to exchange them, but it was freezing outside, and I needed boots now. If Zappos wants to exchange my used boots for a brand new, smaller pair, they'd be welcome!

These shoes were very close to what I was looking for in this price range and I was surprised that they turned out to be a Steve Madden (a brand I associate with lower cost/quality). They do have a bit of a chemical odor out of the box, but that went away quickly. The leather looked a little plasticy when new, but it looks better now that I have worn them for a few weeks. The sole feels solid and the traction is great (what I need for a cold winter coming up). They look great with dress pants that have a narrower leg opening. I like the stitching detail between the sole and the upper. Overall, I would say that these are fairly stylish dress boots that will keep you feet happy in colder weather.
