Beautiful shoe, but runs small. Waterproofing is a problem for all day wear.
on February 10, 2014
I am a solid 11D in almost every shoe I purchase (including Rockports), but beware: these apparently run small. Returned them for a half size larger, and all is well. Comfortable, look great with jeans or slacks, and the color detail in the sole draws the eye to the shoe without being too much. One problem I've noticed is that at the end of a long day, the shoe begins to squeak due to moisture being trapped inside by the waterproofing. Not for all day wear, unless you want to make a lot of noise in quiet places. I wonder if it was really necessary to make a wingtip oxford waterproof in the first place? The shoes look great, so I'm hoping this unfortunate side effect goes away with wear.
