Good-looking shoe. While Bostonian makes an affordable shoe, they still make the more expensive models which feature top quality materials and craftsmanship. Zappos' customer service is superb.

Have used this Bostonian loafer for dancing for years in size 8-1/2 EEE - a perfect fit, and the plastic sole makes turns very easy. The sole finally wore out and I was hopeful I could replace the shoe for the exact same size. Was very disappointed to find that the EEE width was no longer available, only EE which was too narrow for my very wide feet. Also, the new 8-1/2 was at least 3/4" longer than my old one. With my wide feet it is very hard to find shoes, let alone dance shoes. I am very dissappointed that these Bostonians will no longer work for me.

Downgrading to 4 stars after a couple weeks of wear. The leather is on the stiff side and not breaking in like I expected. Some rubbing and chaffing on my heels. Overall though, a nice looking dress shoe for the price.

Purchased as a gift for hubby. They are huge compared to his previous pair. Unfortunately he wore them before he realized how large they are so they are no longer returnable. Otherwise, quality is beautiful as expected.

The shoe is good other than if you touch it or rub a scuff out you get black coloring on your finger but other than that i don’t seem to have a problem so far.

looked great - true to size. Not sure why they were laced oddly from the store. Would rather not have to guess at how to lace new shoes.

Looks like cheaper shoes than what they cost, They also were large in the way the shoe strings drew together all the way to touching each side. The minute they stretch a hair, you would not be able to draw them tight.

Fits great! I love a good compact dress shoes, not one that flops around while you walk. The quality feels really good, especially for the price. The leather is full grain on the uppers, which is the best quality you can get, from what I have researched. I bought these with the hope that they will last a long time, as I tend scuff up my shoes pretty bad. I dont have feedback on this yet, but I have my hopes set on this so far. Ive worn them for 3 days so far and usually by this time I have some visible scuffs on low quality shoes. On these I hardly see any of the scuffs, so speaking from 3 days of experience so far, I love them! I bought the tan leather ones, and I will probably get the black ones, because I love them so much! Thumbs up, I recommend!

The 'dark tan' is true as pictured, but I would say it is more of a taupe brown that goes well with jeans and khakis. I used brown polish to dress them up with a little more burnishing. Good soft leather that takes a shine. From the top, they look a little wide and stubby, but still a nice casual look. Odd lime-green tab on the bottom heels(?). Extremely lightweight and walking-shoe comfortable with little flex slits on the sides. I wore them out of the box for a full day and felt no rubbing or chaffing (which cap styles can sometimes do). I wear a 10, sometimes a 9.5, and these fit perfectly.

Really like these shoes....comfortable from the first wear. The heel backs are a bit stiff, so those do need time to soften. You might want a shoe horn. I'll definitely purchase these again.

In black, this is a very comfortable and dressy shoe. Just what I needed for a few blocks walk to my office. It is perfect for suits and dress slacks and, with a little extra shine, could even work with a tux. The shape is nice, slender, with a lower profile than you normally find on comfortable shoes. The leather, while not Italian quality soft, is still good. The padding and arch support is good. The size is perfect - I wear a 10 and occasionally go down to 9.5. No room for any Dr. Scholls' though.

Love the shoes (fit, style and comfort). They are true to size. Only issue is there was a crack in the sole on the inside of the shoe were the stitching is. This seems to be a chronic issue as it appeared to be the case after several returns (including an order from Amazon).

I have worn this shoe for years. I just order new pairs when the old ones wear down. The only problem is that the treads wear smooth and then the shoes are slick on some surfaces.

I have a fat, wide, flat foot. Went out on a limb with these shoes, and think they're great. I teach and spend a good majority of my day on my feet. No complaints here. My foot measures around a size 12, but due to wide foot, I usually bump up a size, and look for additional width support (bought 13 W). Arch is well supported. Width is generous. Seems solidly put together. Looks sharp too. Wear them for a week and you'll get a "true fit."
