Struggled to find comfortable shoes in my size all my life but these were spot on.
I took a while to review these shoes because I bought them for my wedding. I have since got married and can tell you they are great. So comfortable, grippy and look stylish. I believe they will last a long time and I got no blisters after dancing for about 5 hours in them. The only thing i will say is that they are so heavy, they weigh more than my Doc Martens. My calves have taken 4 days to recover due to the weight. Now I will admit, they probably aren't designed for exuberant cossack dancing, and the fact that they weigh so much is probably testament to their build quality, so I have left 5 stars because I believe that they need the weight. But I do wish they were lighter.
I found that the heel area was stiff and not as comfortable as a new shoe as the Slim Soles were, which I had purchased at the same time. However, I believe that the Oxfords will soften up with usage. Good looking, solid shoe.
