The style was nice, but the leather looked borderline patent leather but not as nice. I thought that they were too glossy and looked a little too much like pleather.

I'm not normally a brand loyalist, but I've bought this same pair of shoes from Zappos once a year for the past four years. You can't go wrong with these.

I have been wearing Bostonian Oxfords like these for years. They go well with jeans or a suit; Appropriate for a wedding, funeral or just handing out with sweetie. The cost is a very good price for these. You would be hard pressed to find a better pair of 100% leather oxfords like these!

Absolutely gorgeous shoe, but unfortunately, not true to width size. A "4E" is more like a "D" or maybe "E" at best. I picked up a pair of Rockports, and they are a real "4E."

Good shoe, especially for the price. Good office shoe. Quality soles, good uppers. Literally zero arch support and I have high arches. Shoe is "short" so there is no room for an insert. Run a bit big, and they get very narrow at the toe. Don't recommend doing what I did and putting in 6 miles on your feet the first day you wear them. They will be nice after they get broken in better.

I purchased these shoes for my son. The shoes are beautifully made and very classy; however, we will be sending them back because of sizing. (My son wears a size 15 football cleat, but I ordered these in size 14. They were quite large. I haven't previously ordered men's dress shoes so they must run quite differently than athletic shoes. (I marked sizing as large for size.)

I ordered these shoes for my husband along with the Bostonian Andover -- both look similar. This shoe was attractive and fit him, however, it squeaked unlike any shoe I have ever heard before. If it hadn't been for the noise it makes, it would have been a keeper. He kept the Andovers instead.

Super light and comfortable shoes, ordered for my fiancé and he really has liked them so far. We ordered 1/2 size too small initially not knowing what the correct size would be. Zappos makes it so easy to exchange shoes and have wonderful customer service. Can't say enough great things about Zappos!

Nice shoe, just ran longer than most 10's my husband wears. Hope to be able to get the 9.5 wide.

Okay, shoe...definitely not the "classic", authentic Bostonian but it's worth the sale price. I will say this, whatever size you wear there...you wear here. Just an FYI. Thanks as always Zappos!

Buy these shoes if you hate your feet. In sum, they lack padding and, frankly, just hurt to wear. If I had not paid so much for them, I would have thrown them away within the first week.

Fabulous and very comfortable shoe! I tried six different pairs of shoes to go with my new suits and these could be worn right out of the box. No need to break them in. I wore them walking in New York City with no problem.

I have used these shoes for worldwide business travel and have found them to be very comfortable and resilient. While not the most stylish, their other qualities more than make up for it.

This is my favorite work shoe, great for travel with slip on... very light and comfortable. The only downside is the longevity. I buy a black and brown pair once every year... after 1 year of continuous wear for work, these shoes are done.. the sole becomes very slippery with tread gone and worn smooth.. When I start slipping to much, that is my warning to chuck the old pairs in the trash and buy a new pairs.. That said, I have never had issues with stitching or sole separation. The only issue is with the treads becoming worn away and very slippery on wet surfaces after 1 year.

I purchased this black pair for a wedding and an identical burgundy pair. They fit perfectly! Good thing as there was much walking. The shoes arrived a day after ordering just as my first Zappos order did which was sent to a hotel where I was staying. I wear a 4E and not only appreciate the proper fit, but the exemplary service. Zappos is great in my book!

These are a very comfortable pair if shoes. I have struggled for years in finding the right shoe due to size of my feet. I am a big guy. They felt great the moment I put them on. So comfortable I bought another pair in brown.

Folks at my job that polish the floors asked me to stop wearing these because of the heel scuffs. Other than that, they felt great!

Just spend the money and get a pair of Boss shoes. These are nowhere near as comfortable or soft. The style is nice for the price, however. Anyone considering this shoe should really consider a true oxford instead.
