After having these shoes for a little over 6 months I can say they break in nicely. I have a wide foot and bought a 12 but was hesitant that may need a 13. I didn't go with the 13 because I was afraid of the length and didn't want them to look like clown shoes. After about 2 months of occasional wear the leather stretched and the shoes fit like a glove. The finish of the leather is also a very nice quality, turning out to be very soft and having a nice polished look (not shiny pleather like others). I constantly get compliments on these shoes when I wear them with navy, grey or dark blue jeans. The shoes pair nicely with colorful socks too. The heel is up a bit and was new to me because I usually wear loafers, but is very comfortable wearing them all day. The only issue I have with the shoe is that the rubber on the sole is somewhat thin. I wear these shoes 1-2 times a week and I feel as if they shouldn't be showing as much wear on the heel. The brown cork/wood finish on the heel has started to show wear as well. However, I am 6' 2", 230lbs. so that may factor into the equation Overall I am very pleased with the style, comfort but the weaker points are the quality of the heel for me. If you are looking or a shoe in this color and style you will not be disappointed, If you decide to go with something else I would recommend getting a heel and sole with the brown finish as opposed to the black. A much cleaner and uniform look in my opinion.

Nice shoe, but if they get any rain on them they stain permanently. I walked briefly in the rain a few times and the leather now has a large water stain. If you wear 100% inside, they'll probably be fine. But if they get any water on them, they get ruined.

I was picking shoes to wear as a groomsman at a wedding, and narrowed it down to these Rockport Style + Purpose and a somewhat similar pair of Cole Haan wingtips. The Cole Haan were a tiny bit fancier, and had slightly better finishing and workmanship. I packed both pairs in my suitcase, and made it a game-day decision. Having the two pairs of shoes side-by-side, I decided that the Rockports were certainly fancy enough for a wedding, and feel like they are built to last years. Plus I really liked the perforated design on the toe. The thing that put these shoes on my feet for the big day is that they're super comfortable for a dress shoe -- well cushioned, and flexible soles for all the standing, walking, and dancing that was to come over the evening. At the end of the day, my feet were happy in these Rockports -- and I'd gotten plenty of compliments for my shoe game from other guests at the wedding. I'm very happy with these shoes, and highly recommend them for someone looking for dressy oxfords/wingtips. Plus, the price is great too!

I'd also recommend: Cole Haan, Mezlan

Quality is nice, but even purchased as a W this shoe is too thin to put on my foot. Other wide shoes are fine. Must be the style of shoe.

Really satisfied with this purchase. I was going nuts trying to find a good new dress shoe for an upcoming wedding: I wanted something in a dark brown color, elegant but not too douchey, that would offer great comfort and allow me to break it down properly on the dance floor. I bought three other pairs of shoes and had to return them all due to weird sizing etc-which Zappos made easy per usual, just the freakin best ever-and then settled on these. I was hesitant, as I'd been toying with J&M/CH/KC...and Rockports seemed like...Rockports? Ordered the Dark Brown, pretty wary because they don't look fab in the photo, but I was pressed for time and had to have something in this color. Of course Zappos gets them to me the next day, and the are SLAMMIN. These puppies are way sexier than they look on the site, really handsome shoes, and comfy AF. They are very true to size and appear to be well made. They're simultaneously sharp as hell and understated. Seriously, looking at em sitting there right now and I'm like Mmm-MMMM! Thanks Zappos!
