I think Rockport shoes are among the more comfortable shoes made. They're somewhat stylish as well. That being said, the financial throes going on in our country and abroad have resulted in companies, like Rockport, experimenting with different manufacturing techniques in various countries. I got two pairs of Rockport oxfords at the same time. These black Evander Moc Toe Oxfords and a pair of Oxblood Ellingwood Cap Toe Oxfords. The black shoes got scuffs early in their wear which never buffed out. It was like a thin membrane, that once scratched, could not be coated, buffed or shined back to it's original condition. The oxblood ones got scuffed and more, but easily rebounded to shoe polish. Both were made in Vietnam.

I've worn these shoes for three days now and with each passing day they get more and more comfortable. The great thing about them is they look great with slacks, Dockers or jeans. The laces are nice and thick and the soles provide a nice sticky feeling. Rockport has been my shoe of choice for many years and these do not disappoint.

These shoes look good, but because they are waterproof, they don't breathe. Consequently they get quite hot when you wear them all day long. And sweaty feet in shoes that are waterproof can, er, start to smell a little bit. They also make a squishy sound when you walk. This is my experience anyway. These are not high quality shoes. I am buying a pair of Ecco's to try them out.

This is one of the best dress shoes I've ever purchased! However, it didn't start out that way. The reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that it took quite a long time before the shoe was broken in enough to be worn comfortably.

It took two weeks of wearing them 12 hrs/day before they stopped hurting my feet (I dreaded whenever I had to walk more than 10 feet at a time), but now that they're broken in, they feel great!

They don't have a super glossy finish, so they're more suited for business casual than black tie. I have more formal dress shoes for special occasions, so these are exactly what I need for every-day wear. They go great with both slacks and jeans.

Best of all, they're waterproof, so I don't have to worry about wet socks if I happen to step in a puddle of water while waking through a dark parking lot (happens from time to time at work).

Edit (1/14/09): I thought I should mention that I mistakenly bought this 1/2 size smaller than I normally wear. That may have contributed to the extended break-in period. I didn't realize this until recently.

I didn't pay attention to the waterproof construction which I didn't need and which made the shoes quite hot after a long day. The shoes were nicely supportive as Rockports always are and looked great. Although the size seemed correct, they rubbed my little toes and back of my heels until both were raw. I gave it about 10 days and it wasn't getting any better. Returned them.

I've bought a lot of dress shoes over the years, but I have NEVER felt more comfortable shoes from the first time I put them on. Not even a break-in period - dang and these comfortable!

These shoes do not have a high-gloss high-dress type of shine like you might see on other Rockport, Florsheim, etc. modified wingtips. They're borderline casual finish. I don't care - I wear them with my suits. Good rubber soles are great on wet tile surfaces, high-gloss lobbies, etc.

Did I mention how comfortable they are?

The shoe fits as expected. It does look and feel a little plasticy. I've only worn them once but overall they were comfortable....just a little rigid near the top. Just need to break them in a bit I think.

I bought these six months ago and everything was fine until this week when I was wondering why my right foot felt damp and these are supposed to be waterproof shoes.The sole has split from side to side clean through. (I have seen other reviews with the same problem with this particular model.) I've been wearing Rockport's for 30 years and have never had this happen before. They usually last well over a year until I wear down the heels. This shoe shows very little wear after six months aside from the total failure of the sole. Rockport quality has been slipping over the past few years, but this seems to be a new low. Note: Rockport customer service won't support claims unless you buy from their website referring you back to the seller. Amazon, however, even after six months, made an exception to their 30 day return policy and a new pair is in the mail at no charge. 5 stars to Amazon.

I needed a pair of stylish, comfortable, and affordable brown dress shoes to wear for my 20 year high school reunion. These shoes definitely fit the bill. I danced the WHOLE NIGHT in them. I definitely recommend these Rockport shoes. I felt dressed to impress and very comfortable. Coming from someone who suffers from foot ailments, this is a strong endorsement.

The shoes feel good and well made... I like Rockport, and until I got this pair of shoes I did not realize that Rockport made nice shoes to wear for work or social events.

The reason I gave it only 3 stars is that I ordered the Extra Wide pair of shoes, and with some Rockport shoe designs that is comfortable on my feet.

However this is a narrow design, and even the Extra Wide is a little uncomfortable to wear (unlike all my other Rockport Shoes), so I have only worn these shoes once so far...

I am hoping that the more I wear them, they might break in and become comfortable. If they do, I will try to update this review and let you know how that goes.
