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.

Love, love, love these shoes! They come with two sets of laces. One, which was one the shoe is a ribbon type lace. I removed it and put the standard shoe lace on, which I like better. One downfall about these shoes is that the regular lace is obnoxiously long! Even after a double knot, it is still too long.

Absolutely love these Oxfords! The Cinnamon/Bronze color is perfect and the dark ribbon laces are adorable! I've been looking for some very basic Oxfords for months. I wore these with bf jeans without socks (couldn't find any no show socks) the first day and no issues at all. No blisters or rubbing. Very comfortable shoe. Looks great with jeans or crops or dressed up for work. Love!

These are the most comfortable oxfords I own. The fit is true to size, the toe box allows just the right amount of extra space. I'm in my work clothes for about eleven hours a day and never had a twinge of discomfort in these shoes.

I just got a pair of these to try out against Frye's Erin and Veronica Oxfords...the Sebago Claremont Brogue won hands down. I am 5'2" and wear an 8.5. These are true to size and the detailing breaks up the front so it doesn't look quite as long in appearance as the Frye's did to me. At first, I wasn't a fan of the ribbon laces (I received leather laces to exchange with the shoes), but the more I wear them, the more I like them. The quality of the leather is on par with the Frye's mentioned previously. I got the Mahogany Brown...and now I wish they were available in more colors in my size because I'd buy more! Comfortable, although I haven't worn them much more than 1/2 an hour at a time thus far. I ordered an 8.5 and they fit perfectly. I have narrow feet and I could see how these may be snug on people with wider feet. I'd recommend them! Great everyday loafer/oxford to wear around with skinnies.

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.

Very cute, well made and not really uncomfortable once you get in but I found with my high arch and the addition of my orthotics that it was rather a struggle to get in. Any type of winter socks would be out for me. So sadly I am returning them but I would not want to discourage anyone else from giving them a try if you think your foot will fit!

These shoes are so cute! That being said they need to be worn in. Don't wear these shoes with flats socks and a skirt for awhile! Stick to good socks and those spot softening adhesives and limit walking long distances until they're worn in. I'm definitely keeping them though!

Really nice looking shoe and totally comfortable on one foot. My other foot has a small bunion, and the leather was too stiff to "break in." A wider width would have helped.

The shoes are gorgeous, stylish and comfortable. However, I greatly appreciate the reviewer that mentioned the heels and the wear and tear; I really try to take good care of my shoes but I have to agree I was really really disappointed in the way the heels just did not last at all with normal wear -- ie., in doors not outside and truthfully not a lot of walking on any type of pavement.

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.
