Great shoes. All I have ever ordered for my daughter's private school uniform. She could wear all year long and it still looks new! Plan to keep them for my youngest daughter when she starts school. Great shoe to hand down as they don't scuff up at all.

My wife and I have a hard time finding shoes of any type that properly fit the middle of our three sons. And when recently he needed new dress shoes we tried these and they fit him perfectly. They also come with a beautiful finish. If they last, we'll be purchasing them again!

I ordered a 6.5 Wide. It was not any wider than a Medium. Disappointed. I won't order again.

I purchased these for my 7 year old son's first communion. He had never worn dress shoes. We tried on several styles and brands, including some high end brands. These were the last ones he tried on. As soon as I slipped them on his feet, his eyes widened and he said, "Wow, these feel great!" He wore them the entire day without issue or complaint. They also looked great. My only complaint is that they aren't leather. Still, I kept them because they felt good on his feet, which was more important to me.

Stiff and noisy when u walk. Very hot inside shoes. Fit is a little wide. Kept because I had thought they were fine and wire them outside. Not so fine after all. Seem cheap.

I don't understand why this shoe is getting such good reviews. They look great in the picture but incredibly cheap in person. My son thought that they were uncomfortable as well. They are going back.

I have used Zappos 3 times. Twice I kept the shoes, once I returned a pair. I have verbally recommended Zappos to all (and there are many) who have smiled at me with nostalgic stories while complimenting my saddle shoes from Zappos. Delivery is speedy, returns simple with no issues. Shoes match description. I am a perfectly satisfied customer of Zappos!

Good, sturdy shoe that I bought as part of my 9-year-old son's school uniform. His school is in New York City and he walks several city blocks in these shoes almost every day. The shoes seem to be holding up well--and my son is very hard on his shoes! He and I both like the classic style and he says the shoe is very comfortable even with all the walking he has to do. A great choice.

Great shoe. This is the fourth pair I have bought for my son. When he outgrows them, I buy him more. He likes them and I do also. Very well made. They last.

I don't know why this shoe received such rave reviews. I think the leather is hard as a rock. I don't see how it wold ever be comfortable. It's like putting your foot between two boards. It's a very pretty shoe and although I ordered a size too large I'm sure the next size down would fit, I won't be reordering this one but finding some other shoe.

I love these shoes! First purchase I make on this site, am very satisfied with the immediate service and most important, true to size fit and quality of the shoes. Will certainly be the first of many purchases in the future. Thank you!

These are awesome for anyone who likes the Mary Jane style! Good Looking and comfortable. I bought them for my daughter who is 9 yrs old. She is a tall girl who inherited my long feet. She still needs a young girls style of shoe so these fit her feet and were age appropriate too! Thanks School Issue! and Zappos! I had a hard time determining the size as we are living in Germany so I finally measured her feet with a ruler and ordered the size that corresponded. It was the same size as the German shoes we buy so sizing was true to measured inches/cm.

My son has a wide feet and has his dorsum of feet slightly prominent, so there was not enough room on the top of his feet with this shoes. Nothing like New balance. So...returning it.

I bought these school shoes for my daughter. After 4 weeks of wear, they still look new except for a slight crease across the front where she bends her foot but I think that is expected in these type of shoes. Her previous saddle shoes actually split across that crease but these don't appear to be doing that. The leather is a plus as the others had synthetic uppers. They are comfortable and attractive. Will purchase again when she outgrows these.

Although I was very impressed with how quickly I received these shoes, I was also quickly disappointed in the shoes themselves. This is not a substantial shoe. In the description and title of the shoe, seller needs to be clear that these are costume shoes. Not every day wear.

These shoes are really cute and extremely well made. The leather is good quality and the shoe is comfortable. However, the new leather is very stiff and there is a considerable "break in" period. I would recommend anyone prone to blisters use preventative measures such as taping your heels before wearing to eliminate the problems with breaking them in.

This shoe was really stiff and uncomfortable for my son. It did not feel like good quality leather. Also really clunky looking. Sending back.

Had to try these shoes which reminded me of my days at Garden City High in NY. Swell shoes, but not for my feet anymore because the counter chafes my ankle bone. Sadly, they must go back.

Comfortable and affordable, these are great shoes. They also come in wide widths which is hard to find. I recommend them for your boy.

Love the Varsity adult. Great support and looks good with my scrubs. I ordered a 6.5 medium but it was a little narrow for me, but my feet may have grown so not sure. I tried to exchange for a 6.5W but out of stock. I would really like it in brown and white like the originals.
