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...
Every single time I wear my new saddle oxfords, I get stopped by total strangers telling me how much they love my shoes! As a kid I was forced to wear saddles, and I hated it! I wanted to wear cute little ballet type shoes, and there were so many kids in my family that my mother could only afford shoes that would last a long time. Here I am well into my adulthood and all I wanted was a pair of saddle oxfords like the old days and I found them at Overstock! They are beautiful, stylish, and just as sturdy as ever...without looking clunky and awkward! And, the best news of all, these are priced so reasonably that you won't believe how well made they are! Quality, style and functional...who could ask for more!
