This shoe has a very narrow toe box. I have narrow feet, but the toe area pinched in regular width. Otherwise a very nice shoe.

At first, I loved these shoes! I wore them 3-4 days a week at work, and they never hurt my feet. But then...after I had them 5 months, I wore them on my trip to Ireland and started noticing that my feet were getting wet inside my shoes every day! I looked at the soles of my shoes and found that they had cracked in half, all the way to the insole, where I could see daylight through the cracked soles! Each shoe had cracked right where the ball of your foot bends when you walk. I am very disappointed in these shoes! The sole of the shoe is made out of a material that does not flex, so it has to give somewhere. Maybe if you don't wear them as constantly as I did, they might last longer. Thankfully, Zappos, with their excellent customer service, has given me a free replacement for a different shoe.

Wore these again the other day for the first time since we got snow, and I couldn't believe I'd forgotten how comfortable they are. My commute involves 6 miles of walking a day, and this is the only pair of shoes I'll wear for the whole day. Everything else, I wear sneakers for the commute and change shoes when I get to work. And they are also really cute. Thinking about buying myself a second pair in brown.

Nice looking, fitting shoe. Comfortable, but with heel issues I cannot wear continually. Ordered the brown pair also--disappointing leather design. Looks like animal print. Cannot see this on the black. Plain brown would have been nicer.

These are the best shoes I've purchased since saddles in high school! They fit my foot snugly, have good arch support, and provide stability on wet and icy surfaces. I wear a size 9 and they give my feet the appearance of looking smaller and I love the design on the shoe. I thought having to tie my shoes every day would get old but not at all. I'm tempted to purchase another pair as a backup!

Love these shoes. Very comfortable, great for Christmas shopping. Since I have had problems with plantar fasciitis and usually have to wear custom inserts, these shoes give the needed arch support, no inserts necessary. Walked the mall with no pain, tiredness, or pressure on my toes. Love the look too, casual, yet not too mannish. I think they're so cute.

These shoes are cuter in person than in the picture. They are also very comfortable thanks to the ample toe box, good arch support, and perfect shaping. No breaking in required. The sole is more solid than the flimsy rubbery ones on many of my other shoes, but still has enough flexibility to make all-day wear quite comfy. I am very satisfied with this purchase.

Wore these right out of the box and the are great. Being laced shoes I'm able to make them snug on my feet. I really like the crinkled look. Plus an added bonus? I wear a size 9 and they make my foot look small. It's magic! I need arch support and so far seems to fit the bill. Haven't been on my feet all day w them yet. True to size.

Love these shoes. They didn't need any wear-in, they were comfortable right out of the box. I walk about 5-6 miles a day, and they were comfortable from day 1. Great arch support and a very comfortable footbed. Plus they're kind of cute. I'm thinking about buying them in brown.

I walk 10,000 steps a day in the city and I must have gone through dozens of pairs of Danskos, Rockports, Merrells, Born, etc. and everything caused me pain except this shoe. I'm tired of wearing it every day but it's the only pair of shoes I can stand to be in for extended periods of time anymore.

I was looking for a stylish supportive casual shoe that was an alternative to boots and dressier than sneakers. Let me tell you it is hard to find one that is not clunky or grandma like on me. I am thin so many of this type look huge and boxy and guy like. I needed something with some curve to them to give me a feminine look. I bought them at the time that I was having sore balls of my feet. I only found 3 shoes out of a long line of shoes and boots I tried on, covering mall after mall that would make my feet not hurt. They also look feminine enough to satisfy me (not 100%) if I really wanted feminine I would have to go to a non casual shoe. But they fit the bill nicely. The picture makes it look like the shoe has more curve and heel type look than it does on. I ordered a 1/2 size up since I wear thick socks and an orthotic and they are perfect. My feet are Medium width and thinner profile and slightly high arch. The color seems darker than shown.

I love these shoes. Very cute shoe. I ordered them in brown, and I liked them so much that I ordered another pair in the black. Great with jeans or casual pants. I normally wear a size 8.5, but because I have plantar fasciitis and need to wear an orthotic, I purchased a size 9. They fit perfect. The shoe has a nice toe box, and plenty of room. I started wearing them the very first day I recommend them, and they are very comfy right out of the box. No breaking in. I have had several compliments on them.

I love this shoe! Incredibly comfy, great style, superior quality -- what more could you ask for? My foot is of average width with no real issues except occasional Plantar fasciitis, which I can control by being sure to buy quality shoes. I only wish it were available in brown in my size -- I think brown fits the style of this shoe better, although the black is darned great-looking as well. The insole is stitched in so you can't add an insert, but the arch support is great so if you normally add arch support, this one may work as is.

Super comfortable. True to size. Lots of compliments on these! What a great alternative to boots or dressier shoes. They look so nice, but are as comfy as tennis shoes! I wore them all night long, several nights in a row w/o a breaking in period, and my feet felt great.

I love these shoes! They are very comfortable. If I could change anything about the shoes, it would be the laces. I have to double bow them because they are so long. The first time I wore the shoes the bottoms were a little slick, but that was not an issue with walking. I get many compliments on them. I love that Zappos had them to me in one day. I recommend the shoes and Zappos!

If you like the style,and need slightly wider-fit shoes, then these shoes are for you. Comfortable right out of the box. Love how they fit, great arch support. I need medium-wide shoes and these are excellent.

Shoes just what I need simple black lace up. Got my regular size 8.5M. Can't wear a thick sock with this shoe but still okay. Arch support didn't feel quite right at first but after wearing for many hours 2 days straight they feel really good.

These are great shoes. I have really flat feet and have STRUGGLED to find decent-looking shoes (I'm 55 and don't like high heels but I can't wear running shoes all the time) that don't mess up my knees and back. These have good support and I can wear them with pants or a skirt. I'm really happy. Yay!

Absolutely love these shoes! They are the most comfortable oxfords I have ever worn! Very light weight, which my feet don't get tired with them on. I wear them at work every single day. I would have liked more arch support in them, but I pulled out the insoles and wear my custom orthodics, and it works perfectly. Super stylish, cute, and comfy, plus a very good price!

The first thing I noticed about these beside how cute they are is how lightweight! I like "earthy" somewhat clunky shoes and usually they feel a bit heavy but not these. I also like the slight recessed cowboy boot heel. I do believe I have found my not sneakers go to shoe.

These shoes are amazing! I put them on and don't want to take them off, and I am a very picky Birkenstock-wearing shoe customer. They are cute as a button and have a cool cowboy-sort of recessed heel which adds to the overall picture. Did I mention the awesome amount of arch-hugging support? I'm resisting the urge to order a second pair in black.

Cute shoes but did not work for me. The toe box is too narrow up and down and with plantar fasciitis it was uncomfortable. I tried the 7 and the 7-1/2 to see if that would help but no luck.
