Yes, these look most like the Real Deal. The are very substantial compared to the thin but rigid Bass versions. The toe box is high (deep) and rounded, allowing for real feet to fit in there with reasonable thick socks. I found the Bass shoe to have a long narrow and not very tall toe box, forcing you to order a half-size larger, and still not only pinching the toes but the toes being long enough to trip over, like some ladies' pumps have. These have a very firm, molded foot shape, and the leather is much thicker than Bass shoes or many other hard-leather brands I've purchased. My only complaint would be that in the wide versions, the toe box is perhaps a bit too generous, so if all you need is width at the toes, not throughout, then the toes box will look every-so-slightly disproportionately large, making for a (in my picky opinion) slightly bulbous or clown-shoe effect. The 7.5's were the right width but too long, yet the 7W were not quite wide enough; I would say that, strangely, the "W" here is a C width in the 7, and a D or even E width in the 7.5. If your feet have high insteps or wide farther back toward the heel (all over, basically), then they will be perfect. They're without doubt the cutest saddle shoe available. They have the best foot shape and are much likelier to hold that shape over time than the Bass, and even the JJ Kids, which I found too narrow and just so-so on the shape. I wish these had adult unisex or woman's in a better range of colors--what about brown, denim and black suede? Bass has all those and more, sad to say.

Narrow, pointy toes. I think that saddle shoes should have round toes, not pointy. Very hard upper. Ouch. Sadly, the search for cuteness continues.

Love these shoes. Wore them in high school and always loved them. Just wanted to get a pair to wear again. They fit true to size and are very comfortable. Nice soft insole but no arch support. Not a problem to remove insoles if you have orthotics as I do. Nice thick rubber outer sole and very durable. Upper is leather. These will last a LONG time, I'm thinking. Reasonable shipping time. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

Love the shoes! Comfortable and well built. Reminds me of the shoes I wore in grade school. Looks great with a pair of cuffed Skinny Jeans!
