I have worn Bostonian shoes for the past four or five years now, last pair was Eaton's and these are the shoes that have replaced them, fit is exactly the same, only difference I could find is the soles on these are not the polished ones that the Eaton shoe had, these are more of a natural leather and a composite heal just like those had. I wear a 13EEE and these only took about three days to stretch the extra little bit to make them feel just like my old ones did. Arch is about as close to perfect as a shoe gets, and they are just a great looking comfortable shoe, that will make your feet happy! If you're looking for a great pair of dress shoes that won't break the bank, look no further, these are the best deal on the internet, I checked everywhere, Shoes.com, Zappo's and even Bostonian's site, they just don't get any cheaper than this, PERIOD!
Amazon does it again, I have had the best luck with shoes from here everytime, and will continue to buy my shoes here for the foreseeable future, no reason to go anywhere else, I've already done the looking for you.
Now quit reading this and do yourself a favor, click Add To Cart!
First this shoe, is slightly more roomy than expected. - so if you are a size 10.5 - order the 10.
I ordered the 11, and it was too large. I was able to compensate with a shoe insert to take up some of the extra wiggle room.
As for the material, it is very, VERY rigid. not a soft leather by any means. I am serious, it is like walking in a wooden shoe.
I am still trying to break them in, but I have never had to knead a shoe before, flexing around the edges to get them to give a little.
all in all very unforgiving shoe. I got them for an upcoming event, and wanted a nice looking pair. they do look awesome, they just don't feel as good as they look.
What makes my experience less than funny is that Amazon or Bostonian could have protected me by adopting low cost, readily available shoe sizing technology. The technology exists to dramatically improve the odds of me receiving the correct shoe. Why not use it?
