      This is my second pair of these shoes (bought the gray suede ones last year). Got the brown ones this year and they are just as good. They are comforable out of the box and so cute. I get a lot of compliments on them. I normally wear an 8, and the 39 is perfect.

          (Silver, sz 37) I've been drooling over these for a while now, but was scared to pull the trigger because the one concession I won't make for my style is painful shoes. When they went on sale, I could resist no longer, and now I'm so glad I took the leap! These are very well made (first "menswear-inspired" pair of shoes I have purchased that are actually made as well as men's shoes), classic-but-cheeky, and I have found them to be extremely comfortable - I normally wear a US 6.5 and have a slightly narrow foot, and I didn't even have to wear them with socks to break them in. I ambled all around town yesterday in them and got tons of compliments and no blisters. What could be better? I will give one word of caution to the faint of heart - the silver is a true mirror finish, i.e., SHINY shiny. I absolutely love it, but be prepared!

            These oxfords are amazing! I got brown leather and wearing them right now. They are so comfortable! The quality is superb.
            I got my usual size 39 and they are great fit. They might be a bit narrow if you have wider foot.
            I can combine them wth dresses ( I'm wearing them with Marylin dress right now,) bistro crops, jeans, skirts - they are a real treat!

              I was so excited when these shoes came in. They are truly timeless, classic british style. I love that they can be worn with shorts, trousers, jeans, skirts and dresses. So versitile!

              I agree with another reviewer to make sure you wear them with sport socks around the house first to help break them in.

                    I bought these in the silver and they are fabulous! I got brogues in other colors last year and the shoe is essentially the same, comfortable and easy to wear. I knew the silver was going to be delicate and indeed I got a big scratch on them the first time I wore them, so I do feel I have to be careful about not kicking table legs or hooking my feet around chair legs when I am wearing them. I do wish they came with a repair kit! I am usually a size 8 shoe and bought these in a 39 (I also wear 39 in nursing clogs) and they appear to look a smidge long to my eye. But I absolutely feel they are worth the price as positively no one else has shiny silver shoes like these.

                      I'd say these run on the large side of tts. Otherwise these are completely perfect and on trend. I got them in silver and they are beautiful. Thank you for make such a simple Oxford.

                            These seem to run about a half size too large. The silver leather is striking but, overall, I didn't think this shoe was terribly unique or comfortable. It is missing that special something--crazy-color laces or contrasting sole. In addition, during try-on, these felt very much like what a traditional man's shoe might feel like--very stiff, no cushioning, might take a bit of suffering to break these in. Returning.

                              I've been putting off getting a "real" pair of leather wingtip oxfords for years. I couldn't find the right combination of style and price, not to mention shape and quality. Here they are! I should have known that Boden would nail it. I was worried that with the stiff/legit leather uppers (and soles!) that they'd be uncomfortable and hard to break in, but after one evening of wearing them with athletic socks in my house, they were fit for wearing out into the world. I'm so pleased. I can't speak to their durability, but I'm so in love with them right now that I can't imagine not getting them resoled.

                                This is my second pair of Boden brogues and I'm delighted with my purchase. Classic and stylish, these oxfords are a great finishing touch to an outfit. Borrowed from menswear, but with a very feminine fit, they're a perfect addition to my shoe collection. Comfortable too which is an important feature for me. I'll note that I do size up from my usual 38 in a European shoe to a 38.5 for this particular style.

                                Well done Boden!

                                  The navy shoe is absolutely beautiful! Because of the stiff patent leather, it was a bit difficult getting my foot in the shoe, but it's still super comfortable to wear. I look forward to pairing these shoes with dresses, skirts, pants, shorts, etc. when the snow melts!
