I love these shoes! Sturdy, comfortable, and fun. I've wanted some real saddle shoes for awhile and was excited to find them. I get lots of comments on their coolness level. They were stiff at first but are softening with wear.

These shoes are great! And very comfortable. My only comment would be they do run narrow and have to be "broken in" before they are fully comfortable. I love them!

My grandson finds this shoe very comfortable. I bought it as an additional to his black ones. I love the color was concerned with the fabric but since they're not used as often as the black leather ones they're holding up pretty good.

The front part of the shoes leather peeled. The shoes look awful after 2 weeks even when they were never wormed outside nor in the gym. Very disappointed in the quality compared to what I paid for the shoes.

I compared this shoe with the more expensive Bass Enfield saddle shoe. This shoe has a nice, rounded toe with plenty of room and, to me, has the more "traditional" look of a saddle oxford than the more streamlined Bass. I also like its white tongue. The Bass has a slight edge in comfort, as it's a softer leather.

Generally liked the look of the shoes, but they are constructed with a seam at the heel which rubbed my son's heels raw.

We tried Sperry, Florsheim, and Kenneth Cole. These fit well. They would not be for wide feet. He wore them to school all of last year and played outside for recess. They held up well and looked good at the end of the year. His feet never slipped out of them, and he felt he had good traction in them for running during recess. Never had to break them in, other than scuff the soles a little. Great shoe for our 10 year old and 7 year old.

Very cute shoes but a little clunky. They are very heavy and run a bit large. Very well made.

I bought these for my middle school son who was standing up in a wedding. They are great shoes; they looked very sharp with his suit. He says they are comfortable; he made it over 12 hours in them without complaining.

Bought these for my 9 year old daughter for school since black shoes were required. She loves them! She says they are comfortable. She's been wearing them for about 3 weeks and I haven't had any issues. They still look pretty new and she wears them for recess. I usually get Mary Janes from Stride Rite, but she wanted something different this school year. We made a great choice!

My five year old loves these shoes. They are comfortable, easy to put on and look good. They lasted an entire year of pre-K with rough playground use and still look good. We are now saving them for little sister and have bought them in a bigger size for kindergarden this year. She always wears wide shoes, so that's what we bought.

This is a great school shoe for kids who wear a uniform or a dress shoe. Love that it is available past a size 6 -- some kids' shoe brands stop at this size and it is getting harder to find uniform-appropriate styles that can take a beating. Men's shoes are a little too tailored for an eleven year old boy who might have big feet!

Neat and comfy. My daughter (age 7) wore them all year and they held up. She wanted the same pair this year.

This shoe was extremely stiff. My 11-year old did not like it at all. Looked like a plastic shoe.

I love these shoe! I looked all over. For them but only found cheap knock offs. These are great. The fit is perfect and they look incredible. Zappos has wonderful customer service. They get 5 stars and a thumbs up! I would highly recommend them. They are like the old time shoe stores. They really care about their customers and they work with you.

These are great shoes - I get mad compliments. I have bought other saddle shoes but these are by far the cutest and most comfortable.

I wear 8B usually, but I have already returned that size and tried 9W and it STILL feels too short and tight. Very cute shoe but I am returning this pair as well.

My grandson has wide feet, so I was glad to find these shoes. They look very nice when he needs to get dressed up and he is happy to wear them.

These are very cute but very uncomfortable. I am normally between a normal size and wide. I ordered wide just to be sure and they are still WAY to narrow. And they are very stiff. Unfortunately, I will be sending them back.

I used to wear these as a kid! Got them again for a merchandising job. Great comfort and support. I did get the wide based on other reviews and I am glad I did. It is a very sturdy shoe. I had no breaking in period. Nice right out of the box.

I'd been wanting this shoe for a long time. It arrived, but with a visible scuff mark on the toe. Returning for a new pair! Fit was perfect.
