Easily the most comfortable dress shoes I've ever worn. I got a brown pair first, loved them so much, bought the black pair too.

So far I love these shoes. I think I'm still breaking them in a little bit because I feel like I could get a blister occasionally, but overall I am really happy!

This shoe looks different than in the picture. The fit was fine but looks and durability were horrible. In the picture it looks like a regular burgundy leather shoe but it was actually more like patent leather or corfram with a plastic shell. So this shoe can't be polished and looks ridiculous with its plastic shell. The plastic doesn't hold up at all either so after two days of wear inside a hotel for a conference (I never even wore them outside) the plastic shell had peeled off in multiple places making them look terrible with no easy way to fix them. Something must have changed or Zappos is sending the wrong shoes recently because all of the previous rave reviewers (and description on the site) don't seem to indicate that these are patent leather.

This is a great true fit shoe. Hard to find that in today's shoe industry unless you are paying upwards. The construction is excellent, nice leathers, and the sole is re-soleable. For the price, this is a great buy.

Stylish shoes in wide sizes are hard to find. I'll be honest, my initial impression out of the box was not good, but that was changed when I put them on my feet. Super comfortable and they look good too! I would definitely recommend for the price and comfort!

A difficult foot for slip on shoes led me to my first experience with Zappos. It was a good experience. I ended up ordering twice. The first time only one of the three pairs fit, but it looked like someone applied the finish with a paint brush - and quickly at that. The second four pairs ordered had two that worked. While the choice was challenging I chose the Bostonian Mendon on appearance. I was impressed with Zappos ease of return and the covering shipping in both directions.

The inserts are two pieces instead of one solid design. The first day of wear, within six hours, the heel piece was already torn apart from the heel and causing discomfort. The size ran a bit small for a 16 EEE. The shoe is very stylish and light, but very cheaply made. I am very dissatisfied with this product and the design that went behind it. I would NOT recommend this loafer to anyone.

I purchased two pairs of these shoes for my sons to wear in a wedding. They both love them. One son wears a size 13 and they fit perfectly. The other ordered a 10 1/2 and they were too narrow for his wide foot. Zappos, as usual, was incredible with the ease of returning and reordering them in a wide width. The reorder came in two days and they fit perfectly. Both are happy with the comfort and style of the shoes. Good purchase and very reasonably priced.

Nothing beats Bostonian quality. These shoes are no exception. In addition to looking great, they are extremely comfortable. You can easily spend the entire day on your feet comfortably and looking great!

These shoes gave me all I was looking for. Fit well, and the finish is much better than the less expensive shoes I've bought before (but not again).

These are very comfortable, but after about a year of daily (five day workweek) wear the tread wore down to the point where they can be very slippery on tile.

Your company was recommended to me by my daughter when I mentioned I needed some shoes. I had never heard of your company before but looked you up on the internet. Lo and behold, you had an appealing style and color in my size, (12 EEE). A little expensive I thought, but I placed the order anyway. Wham! Three days later the were here! I opened them up and tried them on...I have never felt so comfortable in a brand new pair of shoes! I like them very much and have had several favorable comments about them. They feel as comfortable as an old pair of slippers. I'll just have to wait and see how much life is built into them. I do believe that Zappos has recruited another faithful customer. Thank you! I used your foot-sizing chart to great advantage, and have kept a copy of same. Thank you, again.

Almost as good looking as my Johnston and Murphy brown slip on that cost twice as much and twice as comfortable. I wear these every day and now reserve the other ones for special occasions.

Best fitting and lightest dress shoes I have ever owned. The only improvement would be if they looked a little more "dressy."

I bought the black version of this shoe a year ago and it has been excellent. Shoe has good craftsmanship, is lightweight and has retained its shape and finish better than any shoe I've owned in this price range. Just bought the brown version, and it promises to be just as good. Highly recommend the shoe.

These shoes were a gift for my nephew. He wears them to work and said they are so comfortable and just what he needed, as he has a wide foot and could not get the wide width at a regular shoe store. Zappos sent them right away. Their customer service is excellent and their shipping policies worked out great for my budget!

My teen son and husband argue over who gets to wear these. Guess who's buying each his own pair this Christmas? Did I mention my husband got a dream job with a $19,000 raise when he wore these to his interview? Get 'em.

My husband bought these to replace some thoroughly worn-out shoes. He's been quite impressed and goes out of his way to wear clothing that coordinates so he can wear these. Excellent shoe.

I purchased these shoes for my fiance as dress shoes, the shoes look great and are a very nice shade of brown. My fiance likes them because they are so light weight and comfortable, they are better than his black Cole Haan shoes so we may be getting them in black too. Excellent purchase!
