I really liked this shoe. Ran true to my size. They provide real nice support to arch and ball in your toe. I still can't believe it could be at such a great deal. I have already several compliments on these.

Just received my J. Varvatos Cap Toe Oxfords. Wow! The build quality is flawless. I've other Italian made shoes and this pair is easily as good or better than the others. The stitching, calf leather, and detailing are some of the best I've seen. The fit is perfect as well. Oddly, I ordered this pair in my regular size which is 8.5 and did not order the half size smaller as recommended. Guess I was just lucky. I seem to do well when purchasing Italian made footwear for my somewhat wider feet. This pair was no exception as I had sufficient forefoot room in the toebox for a medium or "D" width listed shoe. As usual, the STP pricing made this purchase possible since the list price was beyond my reach. Great shoe, great fit, great servcie, at an "I stole it" price!!! Aahhhh, life is good!!

I've never before purchased a pair of shoes in this league, so I'm not highly informed, but, wow, these are beautiful. The quality of the leather is lovely, of course, but it's the stitching and the burnishing and the detailing that so impress me. Two notes: 1) I bought the Espresso and, as others have said, it is quite dark. In low light it would look black. 2) I did *not* buy half a size small, as per the instructions, and the shoes fit properly. Half a size small would have made them, well, half a size too small. Not sure what STP was thinking there. Perhaps it's that they are long in the toe box, but that is just from the elongated style. It does not make them long in the arch or heel areas. Buy your normal size.
These shoes are like going to an absolutely exceptional restaurant: you can't have the best in a lot of things in life, but you can splurge a few, and these feel like one of those bests. I'm sure there are even nicer shoes out there for even more money, but, with a coupon, STP brought these down to my level and I'm happy.

These are clean, classy looking shoes, and the most comfortable dress shoes I've worn. I bought the espresso, which looks a lot like black in low lighting; a slightly lighter shade of brown would have been nice, but I won't complain. I wear a 10, and these fit true to size. I also got the plain toes in black, and I love both.

The MSRP on these is absurd. At $550, are they comparable in craftsmanship to a pair of Crockett and Jones? Probably not. Fortunately, these are not priced at full retail and are great well made shoes for the price. These have a slightly elongated toe, which is pointy relative to a pair of, say, work boots, but really moderate compared to many other English or Italian made shoes.
Mine did have a small smudge near the heal (these are seconds). But is was less damage than would occur from a single outdoor wearing; no big deal.
Blake (inside) stitched so probably not resolable at your local cobbler. But at this price, who cares.
