Great shoes! I have bought at least 5 pair over the last few years as my boys grow out of them. Stylish, well made, fair price. Highly recommmend!

Reviewer: Great shoes but Velcro pulling off from Orlando, Florida
Overall: Rated:4 stars! Comfort: Rated:4 stars! Style: Rated:4 stars!

My daughter finds these shoes very comfortable. We purchased these shoes four months ago for school. She wears them in rotation with one other pair of shoes. Unfortunately the Velcro-on-strap is ripping and pulling off. So it is time to replace them. I am disappointed that the Velcro strap did not last longer. I will be purchasing them again because my daughter finds them so very comfortable.

They were to wear with a uniform at Private school. I ordered a 1.5 wide though she wears a size 1 only to ensure room in shoe and alleviate exchanges. They were PERFECT enough room but NOT too big and able to wear thick socks. Hint: She loves them. It shows as a girl-shoe. My opinion it looks more like an unisex shoe.

Shoes fit very well. The toe box is incredibly roomy, however, this is also a draw back and makes the wearer look like they have clown shoes on. The heel is also high, and the shoes are heavier than I expected. Sent back for a different pair.

These shoes look nice and fit my daughter well, but beware of this brand. This manufacturer uses thick industrial staples in the construction of the shoe. There is a staple that was not fully closed between the bottom of the upper and the sole. After two days of use, one end of a staple pushed through the insole of the foot bed and left a small puncture wound on the bottom of my daughter's foot (she's fine). Zappos, immediately issued a refund and handled this incident to my satisfaction; the rep was very nice and I recognize this is beyond their control. I am writing this review so people who purchase this brand for their kids, though they may have had good luck in the past, inspect these shoes very carefully! Press along the foot bed and if you feel anything poking, inspect it carefully and take appropriate measures based on your inspection. Again, Zappos, handled this well. Because of this I will avoid this particular brand.

I love the saddle shoes. Fit true to size and they are extremely comfortable! I give them the highest marks ever!

I love these shoes! I bought them because Jack Nicholson was wearing them in a movie!! They are comfortable. I wear s size ten I thought they would look huge! They make my feet look small. I love them! Free shipping. Great service. Thank you!

My 7 year old loves them. Doesn't complain about any discomfort. She wears them everyday for school. Only been wearing them for 2 weeks though. Quality seems very good. Much better than the Payless saddle shoe. Thank you Zappos for delivering within 24 hours.

Wore these shoes for New Year's Eve party. They worked well with my poodle skirt. I ordered them in a wide thinking they would be narrow and they fit perfect.

My older son has worn this shoe for 5 years as a uniform shoe, and I've never had an issue - wears well, and withstands the daily use of school/playground wear. However, recently, I've been through 3 pairs of this shoe where the sole has separated from the shoe within 1 day to 1 month of wear. I will not order this shoe again (or likely any from School Issue), as it appears there is a manufacturing issue of some sort.

The half size did go wider in the W. I am very happy with the thick soles and comfy interior. My usual picks are Nike mens or Birkenstock. I have wide feet for a woman. Spoiled wide feet that found a comfortable high fashion shoe.

My eight year old daughter liked the look but the top of the shoe's side is too high and rubs against her ankle bone. So now she dose not want to wear them. I will have to put some mole skin or something like that on her bone until she gets used to it. Otherwise they seem very sturdy, which is what I was looking for. Hopefully she will wear them.

Ordered for a wedding for my son to wear. They seem to run small; I couldn't get his heel into the size that he should have worn! We wound up having another pair that fit better, but I liked the look of these and wished they had fit. It did feel like the heel counter was really stiff and narrow, though.

Love these! I bought these for my son's Christmas concert and they look awesome and fit him very well. Very nice dress shoes and I would totally buy another pair for this year.

Love, love, love this shoe! I'm hoping that they get the blue and white ones back in stock soon. This shoe is very comfortable and just gets better the more you wear them.

Great value and nice fit! Comes with an extra set of laces. Laces are waxed, which is great to keep them tied. However, your child may find it difficult to tighten the laces. The leather is a bit stiff, so my kids will need to break them in. Excellent shoe for school uniforms.

I went a half size up (8½ instead of 8) and the fit was fine. The shoes are very stiff and crease painfully across the top of my feet when walking. I love the look of them, but it is not worth the discomfort.

These shoes are the stiffest most uncomfortable shoes that I have ever had on my feet. They were almost impossible to walk in and I actually had to have help to get them on, they were that stiff. Yes, the look is spot on but if you want a shoe you can wear I would go with the Bass.

First put them on they are comfortable. They remind me of the 50's. I like any shoe that black and white with high quality. Leather is thick will last a lifetime.

Love these shoes. Have the Jumping Jacks in blue and white and these fit much better. May not be good if you have to be on your feet all day. Been a long time since I've had shoes that I'm NOT in a hurry to get out of! Have gotten many compliments in a short time. Recommend Zappos to all who ask. Great service, great product.

Love them! I ordered a wide. I'm in between regular and wide but these fit perfectly. They are thick leather so have taken a bit to break in but they will be a favorite for many years to come.
