These are similar in design to the saddle oxfords I wore in junior high, but mine had a white rubber sole. These have a nice black sole and the heel is of hard plastic so it clicks as you walk across the floor. It's wide enough for my wide foot and fits snugly but comfortably; the back is a little stiff so I've got to have it "hammered" lightly with a rubber mallet to make it feel better/softer. The shoe is nice and now I can do some "rah-rah" stuff with some old friends...
I had been wanting classic oxfords for quite a while, but hadn't seen any in stores. I looked online at Amazon.com and they had some, but not in wide. I eventually found these shoes and they had them in wide, so I decided to go for it. I was apprehensive to purchase shoes online, because you never know how they will truly fit... These has a good rating and review, so I went for it. I am so glad I did! They are great quality, leather upper, and comfortable. I got an 8.5 Wide and they seem a tad bit too long, but that may have something to do with the width or style or something... And I didn't want to exchange them for a half size down because I was afraid they would get too narrow in the toe if I did. But they work as they are and I am very happy. :-)
