Actual leather. Smells like leather. Fully lined. Solid heel and rubber bottom for traction, but that isn't visible. Stitching looks really solid. Made in China. I normally wear a 10, but had to return for a 9.5. Leather shoes actually worth a damn (unlike Steve Madden, etc.).

I received the Claremont Brogues as my Christmas gift this year after exchanging the Born Arletta shoes which were too small (I wear an 11 so there was no larger size option in those). The Sebago size 11 fit perfectly. I love the style and comfort and got complements everywhere I went. I was very happy with the top of the shoes. They are made from real leather, comfortable, and so cute. The unfortunate thing with these shoes is that the soles are poorly made, and they have completely fallen apart. The rubber started chipping the first time I wore them. I am sorely disappointed as they quickly became my favorite shoes. The heels are now totally ruined with the rubber torn off and the stacked leather heel covers shredded with only light wear to expose ugly white plastic heels. I considered having them resoled since I like them so much, but feel that for this price I should not have to be making repairs so soon. I am returning them and getting men's wingtips instead (looking at Steve Madden Ethin II), hoping that they will be more durable. I would love to buy these shoes again if they change the sole to something that will withstand wear.

This is an absolutely beautiful shoe! Runs very very narrow, though. I have a narrow foot, and it was tight with orthotics. The insert was glued in, so couldn't try the shoe without that and the orthotic, may have worked. I really wanted it to work! I will try a larger size, if Zappos gets them back in stock.

I wanted a rugged, wing-tip brogue and these are perfect. The leather is gorgeous. But I have narrow feet. I ordered them hoping that, because they were oxfords, I could tie them tight enough to fit but, alas, no. Pretty close, though. If you're an A- or B+ width, you might be OK with these.

These are fantastic Oxfords. Modest arch support (would love a little more), but super comfortable, and very stylish-especially with the wide bow laces that are an extra set. I have been looking for comfortable, cool looking shoes to wear with slacks forever. These are it. Before I found these, I actually spent twice as much on an Italian pair, and these are almost as good and a lot less money. I'm ordering in another color. I'm an average 8.5, which fit perfectly. Not too narrow, not too wide.

Very high-quality shoes that fit well. The only thing I didn't like was that they came with ribbons laced in them. Fortunately they also included shoelaces.

They were just deliverd! They are really cute. Love the option of the shoestring or the ribbon tie. Can't wait to wear them ! I would also buy the black if they were available in my size. You know what they say, if the shoe fits buy it in every color!

I love the styling of these shoes, and they look the same in-person as they do online. And, the style is versatile enough to be worn for work or casual outings. I was able to remove the insoles to accommodate my orthotics, which was a big plus. For all of these reasons, I am really happy with the purchase. The soles do seem a little cheap, however, and I am therefore oscillating between giving the shoes 4 or 5 stars overall. There appears to be some debate among other reviewers regarding whether the shoe runs large or is true to size. I did order a 1/2 size smaller than usual and they fit perfectly; I would not have wanted my usual size. They seem to run a little longer than most shoes, but the width is normal. So if you have narrow feet (like me), you will be fine going 1/2 size smaller than you normally would, but if you have wide feet, it may be best to order your usual shoe size.

Classic, well made shoe. Absolutely love them I wear an 8.5 and that's what I ordered. Fit great, slightly bigger then a typical 8.5 but I put in a thicker insert and they fit perfect!

Ultimate comfort, right out of the box! I've always wanted a classy pair of Oxfords but was leery of the stiff leather syndrome; you know, the shoes that have no bend and feel heavy and take months to break in. But I loved the color and style of these Sebagos and decided to give them a try. I'm now the proud owner of a super fine pair of Oxfords. Absolutely love the fabric just above the toe/below the laces. It's shimmery without being gaudy. And the ribbon laces are sweet, with the option of regular braided laces if I choose. Best of all, I can wear these all day at work, without socks, and be in total comfort.

These shoes are totally sick, I love them! They are super comfortable and super stylish. Everyone who sees them comments on how great they look. I especially like the gold highlights that you can see in the suede portion and it makes such a great contrast to the "scuffed" look toe. The grosgrain ribbon ties are just genius. The ties also stay in place better than regular shoe laces. Who know Sebago could be so stylish? They used to make boat shoes but they have now become uber-stylish. Love, love these shoes. The perfect mix of masculine and feminine in a playful way in a comfortable brogue- amazing.

Bought these for work to wear with suits because I do a lot of walking and need something comfortable. Look nice, used the ribbon laces to be a little less menswear looking. Are very comfortable and have gotten compliments on them.

Love these shoes! Have not worn Oxfords in years but these were too tempting to pass up. Leather is stiff but not uncomfortable. The color is great. Comes with both ribbon and shoelaces -- I opted for the shoelaces since big bows on my shoes aren't quite my thing. The middle leather has slightly different texture and has subtle metallic speckles on it. Beautifully made shoes.

These are great, I got them in the mahogany and the leather is a sort of matte "oiled" texture which is great, not shiny and the ribbon adds a feminine touch. Very comfortable to wear and did not need to break in at all.

These shoes look really sharp. They are beautiful and attract a lot of attention. I have the burgundy. They are also great because they have a comfortable sole that grips nicely and is quiet, so I don't make a lot of noise clicking down the echoey halls at work. That being said, I wish they were a tiny bit more comfortable. I can't tell if the size is a bit wrong for my foot or if the fit is strange, but they don't feel great on my arches, which are neither especially high nor low. Regardless, I still love them, wear them often and highly recommend them.

I absolutely love the style of these shoes. Traditional looking wingtip, but the ribbon shoelace makes them much more feminine. I am a teacher and am on my feet all day long. These shoes had zero break-in time. They were very comfortable right away. I like good arch support and these shoes meet my standards. I agree with the other reviewer who said that the soles do not hold up to use. This is really disappointing, as the shoes are relatively expensive and seem to be otherwise very well constructed. I have had the shoes for eight months and will be getting them resoled, so as not to ruin them, which is truly an unexpected bummer. Even with this issue, I would recommend the shoes and add heel taps to prevent rapid wear.

Too small. Whoever said it ran big was wrong. I also think a tad on Narrow side like many wingtips and oxfords. I love the shoe. Super disappointed to return it. Looks like my size 6 is gone. I tried the 5.5 just to see. Too bad! Going back!

Absolutely love the style and comfort of these shoes. Everything about this shoe seemed to be of good quality in the beginning, but did not stand the test of time. The black bottom of the soles quickly started peeling along the faux wood on the heel. I'm still able to wear the shoes but they look very worn and I haven't even had them a year. Leather, stitching and seams of shoes have held up well. Please go back to the drawing board with the soles, Sebago.

I tried this shoe as a little more casual looking version of the Born Arletta. It was more casual and had a fun style with the laces. However, despite all of the great reviews for the comfort of these shoes, they were really stiff. I know leather will soften when worn, but for the price, I just didn't want to risk wearing these about to "break them in" only to find that they were still uncomfortable (and unreturnable) after a few wears.

Received my brogues within 2 days of ordering them - record time delivery, and I did not order any special speed of arrival. Impressive! More impressive are these shoes! They fit so well, are so lovely to look at, and I just love them! And, I have picky, hard to fit feet - so, I am doubly or thrice impressed!

Brands I'd also recommend: cannot say! The Cole Hahn shoes are always good!
