Ordered half size up, based on reviews and wide width, also based on reviews. Fit slightly too big (but half a size down would have been too short) and leather is way too stiff. Went with Hush Puppies instead, to my surprise.

The quality of the leather is terrible. It is like vinyl. And the toe bed is extremely cramped. Very cute style though.

I've been searching for a low heel leather boot with toe interest to make my size ten feet not look so gigantic to wear with tights/leggings and skirts, jeans, dress pants, etc. These are going to work. I've tried many boots. These are leather upper and fit somewhat snug and I have skinny feet. I would say the slip on is a little tricky but you'll get used to it. A couple things: there's a tiny circular gold Bass logo on each boot. One of which popped off right away for me. (It's ugly anyway.) The second thing is the bottoms are super slippery so you will either need to scuff them up pretty good or apply a non stick pad before you take them outside. Overall good buy. I do think they should be a tad cheaper, but I'm hoping they'll last a long time.

Great shoe. Extremely comfortable, like walking on air. Fits slightly narrow, which is great for me since I prefer a snug, slightly narrow D (but never a C/B). The shoe is off-white, not brilliant white.

A beautiful shoe! Looks and feels great! Purchased for my husband, and he loves them. True to length and width. Bass never disappoints!

I bought these shoes for my husband and he absolutely loved them! Great looking and comfortable, he said he'd by a pair in every color. Zappos is the place to go for great men's shoes.

If you're looking for a nice looking suede boot at a decent price, this is it. The shoes go very well with a variety of khaki a cord pants, and the suede texture holds up very well with snow/rain. The one gripe I have with this shoe is the durability of the sole and the inserts. I'll admit that I wear these fairly often to work. That being said, I have a desk job where the majority of the wear these shoes endure comes from ping pong at the office. After about a month and a half, I started to feel a strange dip near the ball of my foot on both shoes. I removed the inserts to find they had basically ripped in half. I stuck my hand in the shoes to find the plastic sole had cracked in multiple areas on both shoes in the same spot. I was upset to see so much damage after minimal activity in less than two months of wear. At the same time, it wasn't all that uncomfortable. I didn't have much of a problem wearing the shoes as they were, but I knew it would only get worse. Fortunately, Zappos is awesome and replaced the ruined pair. I've had the new ones for about a month and a half now, and no cracking in the sole yet. Even if they were to crack again, I would have no problem just wearing them anyways. They are nice looking shoes that are appropriate for both work and casual wear. Thanks Zappos!

Very nice shoes that come in a eee. Bass now has a rubber sole which is good and bad: 1) They are more comfortable and offer better traction. 2) The rubber makes the shoes hotter which is problem for me.

Nice looking shoe, but narrower than I thought it would be. I have a wide foot, but can usually fit in normal width shoes without a problem. However, I ordered the wide and it was just right. The leather was extremely stiff and not very comfortable, but that's how all Bass shoes seem to be at first in my experience. I ended up returning these shoes because I found them for nearly $25 less at another store.

A cute option for those of us who enjoy the menswear trend. I've been wearing these for about a month and found them moderately comfortable. The sole is not veeery cushiony. I would compare it to Converse shoes. The sole is slightly stiff but will get better with time. I switched to these from Cole Haan Gramercy oxford shoes and these are much more comfortable for my slightly wide feet, though Ely-2's are not as sleek-looking as the Gramercy. I also tried the Tommy Hilfiger Niley oxford shoes and they have narrower insteps than Bass Ely-2. Overall, these are good quality, affordable shoes that will look great with anything.

I've been wanting a bootie for the colder months and this fit the bill perfectly. I stand on my feet 9-10 hours a day moving, squatting, but rarely sitting. I need a bit of a heel but not too much; this one is perfect. I like the classic style, I love that I can tighten the strings over my high arch. The only reason I gave it a 3 was the material feels a little flimsy compared to other suede shoes I own, I will probably order the full leather in brown as well.

These shoes are beautiful as classic penny loafers always are, but believe the reviews that these shoes are narrow! Had to return and I don't think that getting a half size larger would work due to the narrowness and the rubbing on my heel. Thanks Zappos for free returns!

I wore white bucks in high school back in the 60's and always wanted a pair before I got too old. They are pretty sharp to go dancing in.

These are light as a feather and super cute. I do not know how durable they will be (I am a city gal and do a lot of walking) but they are very comfortable. I also tried some trendier versions of these oxfords, but these actually looked the most chic! Sometimes the classics are the best.

I ordered a pair of Bass loafers for my son who has an extra wide foot and is very difficult to buy for. They came in record time and fit perfectly. We'll be ordering more shoes from Zappos. Our entire family have very wide feet.

Classic Bass Oxford. Felt a bit heavier than expected. Color had more mauve in it than wine/burgundy which was the color I was looking for, so returned it. As always, great Zappos service both ways.

I could hardly get my foot in this shoe...these where marketed as a wide shoe. Don't be deceived by this company's width scale.

Cute shoes, tons of compliments. Low heel is comfortable all day. I go between a 9-9.5 in low shoes and a 10 in designer shoes, and the size 9 fit perfectly. Wear these with black tights and a cute skirt for a flirty retro look.

I really liked the look of the shoes and found them to be quite comfortable after a brief break-in period. My quibble is with the quality. I bought these in November 2013 and wore them once or twice a week through the 2013/2014 winter (I live in Austin, so it's a moderate winter), then put them on a shelf. My job has a very casual dress code, so from around February through October I wear flip-flops to work. Then when the weather cooled down this year I started wearing them again. Yesterday I noticed that one of the heels felt funny, as if I had a big wad of gum stuck to it, but when I checked, there was nothing. I walked some more and they went back to feeling normal. Only later, when I took them off, did I notice that the sole of the right shoe was separating from the upper part. Granted, I didn't pay a fortune for these, but I would have expected them to be more durable than that.

These look great but be warned about size. I normally buy 7. I got these in 7½W. That was still way too small! I got the same exact shoes in black and they were fine. There are quality control issues.
