Thank you for your feedback.
They fit exactly as they should and are very comfortable after only a few days breaking in.
He LOVES shoes (we bond well ;)) so this was definitely the perfect birthday gift.
They arrived and were just what I ordered, in good condition, looked very good, and fit well.

    The sole of the shoe is an issue on this product. The heel wore faster than any shoe I have ever owned, and the center of the sole ate right through over time. Today I felt the ground on my sock and realized how bad the problem was. The design and fit of the shoe is great, but the bottom of the shoe is terrible. I feel dismayed that the shoe was this bad. I have attached photos that shoes damage. I have several pairs of dress shoes, and this is my first (and last) Bostonian. I wore it typically one or two days a week after originally ordering it in April 2014.

    First time I have ordered a dress shoe online. The shoes came as pictured and fit as expected. I normally have a long break in time on non slip-on dress shoes before they are comfortable. These were comfortable all day long with no blisters or soreness anywhere. I was shocked. The leather is thinner than I would have liked but has a real leather sole.. Not as thin as typical "Italian" shoes which tend to be like glove leather but not as thick as my other expensive dress shoes.

    This shoe is a piece of garbage. I've only had it for 9 months and there is a hole in both of my soles and an actual chunk of the front part of the sole came off. Don't waste your money. Cheaply made.

    I've typically worn a 10 1/2 for many year and many types of shoes. Sometimes I will go up or down 1/2 size due to slight differences in shoes.

    These however were huge. I sent back the first pair and ordered a 10, in hopes it would fit. Got the size 10 and they're still gigantic. They are nice looking shoes, but useless to me since they're so oversized. I'm done exchanging, it costs me 6$ each time I have to send them back due to the lack of convenient drop off locations, so I've paid 12$ and taken over a month to "try on" a pair of shoes.

    Next time I'll stick with buying my shoes at a retailer where I can try them on first and only order shoes on-line if I've already bought, or tried, the shoes at a store previously and can get the correct fit.

    I usually wear size 12 men shoes and this is what I have ordered. I have received something like size 14. Dissapointed big time! I wonder why there are conventional sizes for!

    This is not the Bostonian shoe I've bought in the past. Very thin leather and lining. The inside extended an inch further than my toe. I even tried on with thick athletic socks and still too big. I shipped them back within an hour of receiving them.

    These shoes were a bit small at first, so I shoved in some shoe trees and let them sit for a week. Although still a bit tight, the leather softened and stretched to give a perfect fit. These are super comfortable shoes can be worn all day. The leather soles took some getting use to, but are much nice, and wear slower than the rubber soles on my previous shoes. My only complaint is that after going to Boston for a business trip, I developed severe foot pain after a lot of walking. This was quickly solved by inserting a pair of Superfeet. I wish was that these were able to be resoled, but after a solid 7 months, they seem to have a lot of life in them, so I'm happy. For the price, these are a great value.

    I love wingtips but they are generally a bit stodgy when it comes to style- not so in this case. These shoes fit comfortably and are fairly well made. The leather upper is stiff and could use a coat of Lexol to soften them and keep them from cracking. They are styled on the narrow side but the leather will expand and loosen up over time. I have NEVER seen leather soles on a shoe at this price. If you've never had leather-soled shoes you are in for a treat: leather soles form to your foot over time and if cleaned and polished as needed these shoes will last for decades. Leather soles are also very slippery (especially on carpet) so make sure you buy a pair of stick-on foot pads for the main part of the shoe. Foot pads aid with traction and also cut down on wear-and-tear to the sole. Shoes arrived scuffed due to poor packaging but it wasn't a deal-breaker. Highly recommended.
