I have been a discerning shoe shopper for much of my adult life. Which has resulted in the a extreme set of criteria that must be met in order for me to keep a shoe in my daily portfolio. These Steve Madden "Kickup Oxfords" are a fine addition to my professional wardrobe. I am particularly pleased with the fit and comfort, because when they arrive I was highly skeptical about the quality; however, the leather quickly became pliable and comfortable. Additionally, I was concerned about the artificial material that the sole of the shoe was composed of, but it has left me pleasantly surprised by forming its own tread pattern from stepping on rocks and other debris. This comment might make you think that the sole is soft, slick, and not even remotely durable. This is simply not the case. These shoes have replaced my three year old Cole Haan wingtips, which says a lot.

I would encourage anyone looking for a pair of inexpensive dress shoes to purchase these shoes.

I know, what the hell is one to expect when purchasing shoes for $33. Yeah, that's right. When I purchased these shoes they were listed for $33 and when I just checked they were re-listed for $100! A hundred bucks for these shoes is a travesty. As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "That's outrageous!" OK, so you're probably wondering what I think about the shoes, so let's see if I can summarize:

Quality: They are pretty cheaply-made shoes and they're made in China from cheap materials. A single layer of cheap leather for the main construction, a single piece of red foam rubber for the soles, and no padding to speak of on the insole. Actually, now that I think about it, if I paid any more than $33 I would probably feel quite badly about my purchase.

Comfort: Did I mention that these shoes are cheap? Well, that cheapness flows right into the quality department, too. Not comfortable at all. That's how I'd describe them. And since they run about a half size larger than what you typically wear I'd suggest you order accordingly. Due to the aforementioned lack of padding, it's like walking on a piece of wood with practically zero arch support.

Style: :Let's cut to the chase here, folks. Why else would someone purchase a pair of shoes with a bright red sole unless it was for style points. That's the single, solitary reason I give these shoes three stars. They look boss, right? I've gotten several compliments when I've worn them, mostly from other guys (go figure) and they do get attention. Style points. That's where two of those stars come from.

Price: I don't know what happened between when I purchased them and today, but here's what I have to say about the price. They're worth the $33 I paid for them. They are, not in this universe or any other universe, worth $100.

I own the tan/red and gray/green versions of these shoes. They fit well but more specifically they're super comfortable to walk in. They're stylish and I always get complimented on both colorways. The only problem is that they can get slippery on certain surfaces in the rain. Other than that, they're my favorite shoes.

First off, this is indeed a shoe. It keeps your feet dry and protects them from the traumas of everyday life.

The material in the sole is great for absorbing the shock of walking, and there's a spring to these that you usually don't find unless you put in extra insoles. They're easy to stand in for long periods, so if you work at a standing desk I'd highly recommend these!

Not only do they make your feet happy, they look good while doing it. The colors fit well with each other and the colored laces are an excellent finishing touch. I'm probably going to buy another pair in a different color because these are great!

I wasn't expecting much knowing how much I paid for it but let me tell you they fit & feel better than Florsheims that I purchased at 3x the price. The leather looks nice and the sole is quite comfortable. I stopped wearing the Florsheims and switched to these. And I will wear them until I destroy them because I know I can buy other in other colors to boot!!!

Sizes well and width is good. I don't have any weird foot issues so you can order them the same size as sneakers. They look great!!!

Good shoe, perfect fit. They're fun to wear, but let me tell you: you gotta like green. You're going to get a lot of comments (almost all positive).

Delivered to Australia quickly, which put me in a good frame of mind. The grey was lighter than I expected from the picture, but was still a bold contrast with the featured green soles. The shoes felt stiff at first, but within a matter of minutes started to feel comfortable. The green means that the shoes aren't really right for in a formal setting, but for smart casual wear they are fantastic.

Love the style - have gotten great compliments on the shoe. My only complaint is runs a little small. I wear an 11 or 11 1/2 in most shoes. I have several pairs of Steve Madden that fight great. I ordered the 11 1/2 and these ran a little small. Over time as they break in I expect this not to be an issue. If you are between sizes go up a 1/2 on these.

They look great, but they feel more like plastic than leather.
Not the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned but not bad enough to send them back.
For the price they're okay-- not great but honestly buying shoes off the internet is not the smartest thing to do.

I've had these for 2 plus years and wear them all the time yet they still look and feel great. If they ever fall apart I will have to get another pair.
