I ADORE these oxfords, and I'm grateful that Cole Haan was willing to make a really handsome, simple leather wingtip version for women when so many other brands have not. Before buying these I scoured the internet and numerous department stores/specialty shoe stores to find classic oxfords for women, to no avail. These ended up being the best pair I found by far, and are incredibly comfortable (I've worn them a few times walking all over NYC by now) in addition to being timelessly stylish.
I noted that the shoe runs a little small, as I had originally tried them on in-store in my normal women's 7.5 and found the instep to be a bit too snug for my taste. I ordered up to an 8 on Amazon, which ended up being the perfect fit. I've worn these with both socks and tights and I definitely think I made the right choice to go a half size up. I also can't believe what a steal these shoes were on Amazon compared to the store price! Couldn't be more pleased with the quality, and I...
I'm really torn about these oxfords. As someone who wears a 4.5-5, I was delighted to see that these 5s fit my small foot. Unfortunately, though, the toe box is fairly narrow, as others have said (even on my relatively narrow feet). My biggest concern, however, is that the edges around the opening aren't the smoothest and thus dig into the sides of my ankles. I've tried them on around the house 3 or 4 times now with different socks and I can't quite determine how these comfort issues would play out over time. Your mileage may vary.
I love these shoes. They are the dressiest ones I have. They are not the most comfortable... but I guess you can't expect both for that price, right?
