Bought these very cute shoes for my mom, which look as pictured, but unfortunately, the W width isn't wide enough. Her toes felt scrunched and pinched together. Sadly, I'll be returning these and we'll continue the hunt for shoe nostalgia.

The shoes fit my son well. He has always had a wide foot, and getting the right fit can be hard. This is a handsome and comfortable shoe.

This was the first time using Zappos.com. I'd always wanted saddle shoes and they aren't carried in any local shoe store that I could find. It was so easy. The reviews were a big help. I can see where they run a bit small so I went up a 1/2 size. I could have went up a whole size. But I broke them in by wearing them for short trips. These are the shoes I lived from my youth. They are very nice quality. And regular shipping was very fast.

I could not love these shoes more. I am happy every time I look at my feet. They are fun and totally comfortable. They are a heavier, well made shoe, which is rare these days. They give even the simplest outfit that special something. I am also constantly complimented in them. So if you want to make the world a happier, more fun place - buy these shoes!

These shoes looked durable and were a comfortable school shoe for my ten year old. However, after just two months the silver buckle broke completely off and leather is lifting from the rubber footbed. Very disappointing indeed.

These have been great shoes for my daughters to wear with their school uniform. But the most recent set of shoes seems to have quality issues (Fall-2014). The velcro separated from the leather strap holding the shoe on. After 8 weeks of wear, the shoe is now worthless. There is a very clear quality issue with these shoes. They either changed manufacturers or their quality control is failing. I tried contacting the company to get redress, but so far nothing.

Kudos to Zappos' easy return policy - the process of getting this shoe in the right size was hassle free...and worth the effort! I don't always wear a wide shoe, but ordered 9W upon reading other reviews. I wound up trying the 9.5 W and finally found success with 10W. However, being mis-sized is the only fault with these shoes! This is a wonderfully sturdy shoe; as a teacher, I'm on my feet all day and my feet are happily supported in these saddle oxfords! I highly recommend for comfort! But, let's be honest, the saddle shoes were purchased to satisfy a nostalgic bend: I wore Saddle Oxfords through high school in the 70s. This is a fun and happy nod to my past. Even more fun is the stream of like-minded public that offers compliments and reminisces with me. Buy these shoes and I guarantee you'll find happiness in your step!

These fit my wide-footed son comfortably. He likes them so much that when he outgrew them, I bought not only the next size up, but the next size after that.

My experiences with with purchasing my daughter shoes for school were great. I ordered a size 6 and a half; the shoe was too small. I contacted Zappos customer service and the lady who helped return the shoe for a size 7 was very helpful and I was not charged for return and the shoe was at my door 2 days later. Thanks Zappos. I recommend.

I love these shoes! Sturdy, comfortable, and fun. I've wanted some real saddle shoes for awhile and was excited to find them. I get lots of comments on their coolness level. They were stiff at first but are softening with wear.

These shoes are great! And very comfortable. My only comment would be they do run narrow and have to be "broken in" before they are fully comfortable. I love them!

My grandson finds this shoe very comfortable. I bought it as an additional to his black ones. I love the color was concerned with the fabric but since they're not used as often as the black leather ones they're holding up pretty good.

The front part of the shoes leather peeled. The shoes look awful after 2 weeks even when they were never wormed outside nor in the gym. Very disappointed in the quality compared to what I paid for the shoes.

I compared this shoe with the more expensive Bass Enfield saddle shoe. This shoe has a nice, rounded toe with plenty of room and, to me, has the more "traditional" look of a saddle oxford than the more streamlined Bass. I also like its white tongue. The Bass has a slight edge in comfort, as it's a softer leather.

Generally liked the look of the shoes, but they are constructed with a seam at the heel which rubbed my son's heels raw.

We tried Sperry, Florsheim, and Kenneth Cole. These fit well. They would not be for wide feet. He wore them to school all of last year and played outside for recess. They held up well and looked good at the end of the year. His feet never slipped out of them, and he felt he had good traction in them for running during recess. Never had to break them in, other than scuff the soles a little. Great shoe for our 10 year old and 7 year old.

Very cute shoes but a little clunky. They are very heavy and run a bit large. Very well made.

I bought these for my middle school son who was standing up in a wedding. They are great shoes; they looked very sharp with his suit. He says they are comfortable; he made it over 12 hours in them without complaining.

Bought these for my 9 year old daughter for school since black shoes were required. She loves them! She says they are comfortable. She's been wearing them for about 3 weeks and I haven't had any issues. They still look pretty new and she wears them for recess. I usually get Mary Janes from Stride Rite, but she wanted something different this school year. We made a great choice!

My five year old loves these shoes. They are comfortable, easy to put on and look good. They lasted an entire year of pre-K with rough playground use and still look good. We are now saving them for little sister and have bought them in a bigger size for kindergarden this year. She always wears wide shoes, so that's what we bought.
