Material is a little thin, but these are solid for the price. They look good too. Haven't worn them much so I can't comment on durability, but first impression is solid.

Bostonian brand has sunk in a big way! I had a pair of B’s for about 10 years and LOVED them! Yes, they lasted that long with one complete resoling. Why try another brand, right? I have tried several different Bostonian models in the past month, and they all feel like the cheap crap you get at Payless Shoes. I’m not going to pay $100 for shoes that feel like the $10 cheeps from my elementary school days. Very nice looking shoe, but the “leather” was extremely thin (leather in quotes because it just felt like cheap faux stuff, and I don’t think real leather can be shaved so thin). The thin material dug into my ankles at the rim. My old pair had a nice pad around the rim, so they felt nice right out of the box. I guess the padding costs too much to continue that feature. I have no idea why people rave about this shoe. Should average a 3 star rating at best. Bostonian is such a disappointment. Once you find a brand, you stick with it…like a good auto mechanic. Until the mechanic starts doing a crappy job and you still pay the premium price for it.

They're definitely on the roomy side, but I wouldn't say exactly a half size larger. I selected "felt half size larger" because "roomy" wasn't an option. Just an FYI. I have another pair of similarly priced Bostonian oxfords and they fit just right. For this pair, my feet have more wiggle room than is typical, but not enough to send back for being incorrectly sized. Build quality is pretty unbelievable for this price range. These feel and look like a much more expensive shoe. The outer sole has a solid feel while the inner sole is quite comfortable. The outer leather looks very classy. Overall very nice shoe.

Bought them for my husband. Comfortable right out of the box. He loved the shoes. When he needs another color, these are the pair to wear.

I have owned many pair of Bostonian dress shoes. For me these felt/looked cheap. Very light - too light. The rubber sole was soft, but it was clear that it wouldn't last. The shoe had the overall look/feel of a shoe one would get at Target.

This item is poorly designed and is not as good as the previous model. It also runs at least 1 size too big and is narrow and pointy. I am very disappointed by this renewed model. I ordered 10.5 Wide. My left foot is 10.5 and my right foot is 11. The shoes did not fit and was at least one size too big (very long, pointy and ugly fit if that makes sense). I hope Bostonian will bring my Model #22462 that it seems it was replaced by this model.

These boots fit great right out of the box. I purchased the grey suede and I really like the style and color. You can expect the same quality from Bostonian as you would from Clarks.

The only bad thing I have to say about these shoes is that they are not durable. Honestly, I wish I could stop buying these because the soles wear out and lose traction so. fast. I just bought a new pair to replace a pair that is under 5 months old. However, no alternative shoe I have tried has been as comfortable and easy to put on as this one. I'm required to wear professional attire at my job 5 days a week, and these shoes fit the bill. They aren't flashy, but they have a clean look that goes with any business casual outfit. I live in a city where I walk a lot and take public transportation, which contributes to the high rate of wear I put on them. Given the price, I can live with buying 2-3 pairs every year.

Great shoe. Very comfortable This shoe runs a 1/2 to a full size larger than what's marked though. I wear a 9 normally, but ordered an 8.5. It fits well, but I wear thin wool socks most of the time. If you wear thick socks or if you're on the small side of a particular size, you may want to order a full size smaller.

Size was good, and they looked great. Unfortunately the edge around the ankle and Achilles tendon was really sharp and uncomfortable. I ordered a similarly styled pair of Clarks at the same time, I'll be sticking with those.
