Beautiful shoe- odd fit

Loved these shoes- I got the gray animal print. I was concerned based on other reviews that they would be too narrow as I have a wide foot. I didn't find that to be true. They were, however, unusually long and therefore I had to return them. Disappointed! They are gorgeous shoes.

Fun but not as comfy as older brogues

Best Uses

    I have a pair of suede Boden Oxfords from a year or two ago that I can walk for miles in. I thought the navy/metallic would be a fun alternative to give the suedes a day off. Plus, they look GREAT! They aren't nearly as comfortable however: the leather doesn't bend well, the tongue comes up so high on my foot that when I walk it digs into my ankle, and they absolutely feel much narrower than my old ones, which fit perfectly from the moment I put them on. I kept them and I do wear them but wouldn't want to put them to a day-long test of walking around the city.

      I really wanted a pair of these shoes and was dismayed when I realized the plain colored brogue oxfords were no longer available. I decided to order these and see if maybe I could make them work but they are just too flashy. The fit was good and I would buy a pair in navy, brown or another solid or more neutral color in a flash if only they would bring them back. T

        I'm always worried that shoes will be uncomfortable, but these are very comfortable and ADORABLE. It's like sunshine on my toes (I got the yellow ones). I wear them with dresses, jeans, to work, out in the evening, Love them. If you are on the fence about sizing, order up.

        I loved the look of these (especially the navy/metallic color match), but the size 42 (which is normally my size in shoes) felt a whole size too small/narrow. Unfortunately had to send the shoes back. Wish Boden would consider carrying 43 and even 44 shoe sizes based on this size 42 being more like a US size 10.

        • Euro Sizes Never Fit
        • Uncomfortable

        Best Uses

          Time and again, I fall in love with the look of Boden shoes: fun colors, interesting designs, clever exterior details. But the Euro sizes never seem to fit my American feet (this oxford comes in half sizes, which elevated my hopes because 41s are too small, 42s too big). Boden skimps on the interior of most of their shoes: no arch support or comfy footbed. I love the clothes and have hopes the shoes will one day live up to the promise of looks AND comfort.

              I loved the look of these shoes and was really excited to get them. However, even though they were the right size they just weren't comfortable. The patent leather is too stiff and the opening of the shoe sits too high on the ankle. I was sad to send them back.

                LOVE the style of these oxfords! I ordered the navy/pewter ones and really like the color combination. They are a little stiff yet, as I've only worn them a couple times, but they are quite comfy and I would definitely recommend them!

                Best Uses

                  I have these shoes in tan from a previous season and I wear them every day that I can. I don't usually spend over $100 on shoes, but I decided to make the plunge and it was worth it. I have never liked a shoe so much in my life. They immediately give any outfit an extra kick and make me feel cool and confident. I get compliments on them constantly, sometimes several in one day. They are one of the only item I own that make complete strangers come up and ask "where did you get those shoes?!".

                  I did get a few blisters before they wore-in but now they feel as good as slippers. I'm a little disappointed in the colors this season, it would be nice to have a solid classic in the mix too, only so everyone could wear them as often as possible! A shiny black would be irresistible and I'd buy them immediately.

                      I pulled these out of the box & instantly didn't like the material. Looks plastic-y which didn't come across in the catalog. I thought just the cap toe had some shine, but it's the whole shoe. That said, it's just not my style, but the shoe itself looks very cool.
