Consistently great! I ordered a pair of these for my husband
and then a pair for our son. (They now know how fabulous
Zappos is!!) These shoes are great because they are always
reliably consistent. They are comfortable, well made and
nice looking. They both have worn Topsiders for years, so
they already knew they would work. I wish it was as easy for
me with my shoes!

My most comfortable shoe - This shoe is a timeless classic
that lives up to its reputation entirely. It is rare that a
shoe fits so true to size. I actually bought a pair a half
size larger than my actual fit and had to send them back and
get a smaller size. I wear this shoe all of the time: around
the house, out with friends, walking in the park, anywhere.
It's a little too casual for my workplace which is really
saddening. They look great, too. I have them in classic
brown and actually get compliments all of the time (even
though they're fairly commonplace or so I had thought).
These shoes are always in good taste for whatever you are
doing where you can dress casually. I love them and will
certainly be buying a new pair if these ever wear out (which
probably won't be for years). I once described them to a
friend as "slippers you can wear around in public". They're
that comfortable. However, if you are in need of extra
support or just like to have it, these do not provide that.
That is their only flaw which could be major or minor
depending on your feet.

I love these shoes, but here are 2 things to keep in mind
when buying boat shoes: This style is more open, like a
slip-on shoe, and feels a full half-size larger than normal,
so order a half-size down. They will fit perfectly. I cannot
do the same thing for regular style boat shoes, so would not
necessarily recommend ordering down for all styles. Also, I
was concerned about the width because I can be a wide fit
but the regular width in these (B) fit just fine. These type
shoes do tend to rub on the heel a bit when new, so don't
buy them to wear for an all-day walking event right away.
I'm sure you can put some sort of heel pad in there to help.
There isn't much arch support either, they're boat shoes so
they're pretty flat. Again, comfortable for kicking around
with but wouldn't wear them to walk in all day. Overall they
are great casual shoes, I like them very much.
