These boots are small in the shaft. Hard to believe that they are wide-shaft. I couldn't close them by a good 2 inches. Also thought the quality of the material was not very good. They do look pretty.

This is a pretty shoe, but it was too small for my foot. I previously ordered an 8WW, and my feet were swimming in those -- could barely keep from walking out of them. So, I tried the 7.5WW, and it felt like I went down 3 sizes! I'm really sorry, since I need something similar now, and, they would have been a good staple for my wardrobe in the future.

These are the most comfortable dress shoes I've ever bought. I must have bought and returned 5 pairs of shoes, until I tried these. I have very wide feet and always have problems with dress shoes. They were comfortable right out of the box. Very cushioned. To top it off, they are beautiful. I danced all night in them!

I know a half size down would fit me, but they are out of it and so is everyone else. I am sad. I love this shoe, and really wanted it in patent. I will wait and see if it comes in, but I will say that this shoe seems very well made, I love that it is in wide and honestly, yes, order a half size down than what you normally do, I didn't and I regret it.

Nice shoe. Really comfortable right out of the box. Yes, you should size down half a size.The gravel gray color appears to go with a lot of stuff in my closet.

These are really nice looking. A great shoe for work. These are a nice way to have a "heel presence" without teetering on a spike.

Beautifully styled shoes, but way too long! Also too much toe cleavage showing. Color reproduction is accurate: a true oxblood, more brown than red. Had they fit, I probably would have kept them, but not quite what I was hoping for.

I love this pair of shoes. They are elegant and super comfortable. The leather is nice quality and the color is beautiful!

These are some sexy boots! I received so many compliments on these that they are now definitely my go-to boots for a night out on the town. I'm not one to wear heels -- and ordinarily 3" would be pushing it for me - but these were relatively comfortable. My calves are about average and the shaft of the boot fit well with about a finger's worth of wiggle room. I went for the grey suede and I'm loving every minute of it!

Love these shoes. They are just what I was looking for, and the mostly grey color matches everything. They are comfy, needed no breaking in, and are just right for my job as a middle school principal. Even though they match almost everything I own, I may another color, as that's how much I love these shoes. My heels do slip out a bit, but I have that problem with every dress shoe I own. My feet are huge(12B), my heels are narrow, and my toes are wide. These are simply as close to perfect fit as I've ever had.

I have this in black. It is a classic work shoe with a rubber sole. It's comfortable all day. I ordered the wide and it was a little wider than I expected - nothing a heel pad couldn't fix.

I loved these online, but was a bit disappointed when they arrived. Their true color is a bit more faded-out looking than the picture online. They aren't for me, so back they go.

When I opened the box, I thought that these boots look great! But, the arch is a bit too high for my feet otherwise I would have kept them.

I totally agree with that they cut painfully across the big toe area. They are going back. They are attractive but don't pass my requirement to be comfortable out of the box.

For the first time ever, I encountered shoes that were too large for my size 12 feet! These shoes are lovely but they just did not fit. Additionally, there were scuff marks on the heels of both shoes so even if I had wanted to figure out a way to work with the issues of fit, I would not have been able to overlook the damage to the material.

Adjusting the buckles on the side created a strange bump in between the straps (you can see it a bit on the side view of the black pair here). Without adjusting them the top is uncomfortably wide and loose. Ended up returning them.

I love these boots. They fit my difficult 9 WW feet and feel comfortable. I have had some difficulty with the zipper. It is really hard to zip. I really like the fit of Bella-Vita shoes and boots. I have several pairs of this brand.

This is a beautiful shoe. It looks really nice and feels comfortable. I am returning because I switched the color dress I am wearing to a wedding and because for me, they are a bit too high.

I loved this oxford style. I loved the tassel. Ordered in 11 W Unfortunately the wide width was too narrow in the front and too wide in the heel. Length was okay. I wore them in the house for a couple hours hoping the leather would relax with the warmth of my foot, but it didn't budge. The stitching where leather meets fabric prevents it from loosening. I have a slight bunion on my left toe that the stitching rubs against, which is why I can't wear most ballet style shoes and prefer shoes that come higher on the foot. From reading reviews WW would have been way too big in the heel, I'd be walking around like I'm in flip flops. So back they go for a pair of Naturalizer similar but no tassel.

I love these boots! Got them in grey suede and they are incredibly stylish. I received multiple compliments on my first day of wearing them. Moderate heel makes them comfy and they have a padded insole which helps on the concrete. Love the silver buckles - most boots have gold hardware. Would buy another pair in the black leather but they're sold out in my size. Would highly recommend!

I loved these boots when I first tried them on. They look really nice and the gold accents are a nice touch. The zip is a little hard to get on and off, it is a little stiff, but the shoes are very nice and stylish. I even got an outfit to match! Unfortunately, I have to send these back. I usually wear 8.5W, but the W is not wide enough. After walking a few blocks my feet started to hurt badly, I could not walk anymore. The front pinched my feet really hard and the shoes are hard in the front so there was no space or softness to expand. I really like these shoes but they pinched my toes a lot. I am going to try a WW which is a first to see if perhaps that would be better because I really like these boots!
