Women's Saddle Oxford
Would not work for my use
These were so cute and for a great price, especially on sale. They fit true to size although they were a bit stiff right out of the box. I am sure they would have been great after they were broken in a little. Unfortunately they would not work for what I wanted them for. When I ordered them I never realized they had a nonskid sole and I needed something that slides a bit (like smooth leather) for swing dancing. These grip the floor and there was just no way I would be able to do the turns in them. For other uses that would probably be considered a plus but not for me. Too bad.

Great price for a Classic Saddle
I wanted a pair of Saddle Oxfords but didn't want to pay the $70+ dollars.. I took a chance by reading the reviews that I would order these in my size. I'm a 12 and usually a wide. When the store called and told me they came in I went in and they said I could try them on before I bought them. They were GREAT! They look terrific with my straight leg jeans and the Sales Girl suggested I try them with some light colored capri's when I'm dressing in my fem persona. I'll have to wait until spring though. I have been wearing them with both dark and light colored jeans in both male and fem modes though and for a guy these are simply adorable as well. They have yet to carry them in men's so what are we supposed to do? That's right! Shop the women's selections! LOL! Other's have noticed and thought they look really cute and perfectly fine for both men and women. I shopped all day the day I picked them up and for a light shoe they were really quite comfortable. They wash very easily and have just a slight touch of patent shine. These are really a fun "Classic" shoe!

Retro Look; Adequate Comfort
These shoes fit my narrow 9.5 size foot very well. Roomy but no slipping around inside, no blisters. I do not need to lace them very tight. Poor arch support and a little stiff across the bend of the toes just past the instep, but as I wore them they seemed to soften up. I am comfortable in them, but they are a bit stiff. Hope they last; they're only man-made materials. The styling is terrific. The toe is a narrow rounding, more feminine, so they don't look clumsy. Cute reddish soles. Great with jeans, chinos, or skirts. Everyone seems to notice these shoes and smiles to see me in them, so if you like a retro look that triggers nostalgia at a truly thrifty price, buy a pair.

I wanted a cute pair of saddle shoes and suffice to say, these really fit the bill. Shoe fit was good on the first try (a little wide, but nothing too bad), and aside from the fact that the inside lining damaged my tights, I was in love. It's also nice to know if I wanted to, I could buy another pair, seeing as these shoes have been available since 2011... all around, just a fantastic buy.

I wanted to love these shes
I'm doing the poodle skirt outfit for Halloween and really wanted these shoes to complete the costume. I tried three different sizes (10, 11 & 12). Not even the 12 was large enough for me. I'm so disappointed. But I would definitely recommend to a friend as the style, quality and price are excellent. I think my experience was unusual. If they came in wide sizes I believe I could have made an 11W fit.
