Never could get a size that fit. At the lowest size where I could get my foot in the boot, there was at least 1.5 - 2 inches of space beyond my toe. :-(

I can't comment about the sizing or comfort because they were so ugly I never tried them on. They look plastic. They feel plastic. I have many other Varvatos shoes that I adore, but these don't look anything like the picture. I didn't even take them out of the box. They have a fake leather feel similar to something you might find at Walmart. The finish work is sloppy. I could not have been more disappointed.

I returned them! The good: GREAT stying. Maybe one of the best looking shoes ever made? The bad: So uncomfortable that I couldn't wear them. The entire front part of the shoe is great, but the back part that rubs against your achilles is hard and sharp. It almost feels like it's cutting into your skin with each and every step. As much as I loved the look of the shoe, I couldn't handle the discomfort. Sadly I sent them back. :/

Run large, if you have wide feet, order down 1/2 size, if you have thinner feet, order down 1 size.

Innovative design concept, casual and although I have other Varvatos footwear in my wardrobe, this pair was a MASSIVE disappointment. I love the color & style but it ended there: the leather tongue on the left show buckled when I slipped it on and drove a painful knot into my foot... repeated every tim I slipped iron. The rogue is totally unfitted, will not conform to your upper foot and was seriously not to normal Zappos & Varvatos quality. The tongue is unfinished along each edge which is completely visible when one looks - making the show look like a cheap COPY of a Varvatos design. The molded-on elastomer sole is stiff and uncomfortable - not at all, as billed. The size was correct - but the choice & flexibility of the materials, the craftsmanship and detail fit is well... unfortunate.

Nice design like most Varvatos. Some kind of webbing on the bottom that, while it may be an interesting design element, makes the shoes slippery. It also immediately starts to tear. Seems shoes like these (or any shoes) shouldn’t be slippery in the bottoms? And again like most Varvatos items, well made but not generally worth full retail. You pay a premium for brand image / fantasy. That’s up to you whether it’s worth it or not. I buy their products but only when at least 30% off retail. 50% off makes it seem worth it: quality, brand and all. YMMV.

I love John Varvatos shoes and boots and yet have always found the sizing to be unpredictable. I ordered these in both the leather and canvas and found I had to go with a full size smaller than what I normally order. Even with this size discrepancy and making the accommodation my heal was very loose and would pop out of the shoe. On the leather model it was incredibly loose.. completely unwearable for me. The canvas model was slightly better but not good enough for me to feel comfortable in the shoes. I give 5 points for the style but unfortunately for me these were not wearable so I had to return them.

This is a beautiful shoe. A bit overpriced, but well worth it considering how stunning it is. However, listen to these reviews before you purchase-these shoes are one size too big. Purchase one full-size lower than you usually do. Trust me, if you don’t heed this advice you will be returning them

These are really nice, high-quality shoes, so you're getting what you're paying for. Order a full size down, trust me. The leather is nice, the design is cool, and the soul has some cushion to it.

Stylish casual shoe. Thankfully, previous reviews were spit on. I’m a legit size 12 in most brands, as well as other John Vervatos shoes and boots. Ordered a size 11. The fit was perfect.

Best John Varvatos converse I’ve had to date. And I’ve had a few . Nice and comfortable and with the new front sole makes the shoe fill nice and sturdy but still light. Overall love the shoe!

I almost returned them after trying them on because they felt tight on the width. After wearing just once they were very comfortable. So if you find they feel a little tight try wearing them a bit and see if you find the fit better.

I usually order size 11 for most shoes, but these were a full size too big. I settled on size 10. Order 1 full size down.

These shoes run a full size large, both my husband and my son had to size down. They do come with laces in case you prefer that look.

Love the style! However, this style is an almost exact knockoff of a bed / stu style I may have purchased from Zappos about two years ago. ( You may actually still be carrying in grey and brown ) The retail on that style was approximately $115. The blue black (suede?) in this item is not, in my opinion, an acceptable quality at this retail. You have all my information if someone would like to discuss. Thanks.

Great looking and feeling shoe. Consider sizing down a half or even full size. These run big.
