Runs narrow I'm a female police officer and ordered these shoes thinking the price would equate to a comfortable quality shoe. I naturally have narrow feet, however I purchased these shoes in a 7.5 M and they are still too narrow. The pressure was so narrow and tight on my toes that it caused the nails on each of my big toes to crack. I didn't know what was causing the issue until my doctor suggested it was the shoes not providing enough space for my toes to move around and sure enough when I stopped wearing them, the problem corrected itself. The quality of the shoes seem fine but they are not very comfortable toward the front end of the shoe. Back to the drawing board.

Sizing issues, way smaller than expected! The Bates size chart shows the women's 12 to be equivalent to 44 euro. An 11 men's is also supposedly a 44. The women's 12 is way smaller, even in wide. Right shoe seemed a tad larger than the left, might have been able to stretch a bit with some wear, but the left was a complete no go. The cut of the women's version, only four eyelets fits better than the five eyelet men's version. Disappointing that larger sizes/widths are not available, I would guess that a 13w or ww women's would be perfect.

Great fit! I was pleasantly surprised to find that my new shoes fit comfortably. A few years ago, I had to stop wearing my oxford uniform shoes because of foot pain. After recovering and getting some custom made inserts for support, my old shoes were too tight. I received permission to wear alternative shoes as long as they were black but I really wanted to be able to go back to what I was supposed to wear. The Extra Wide shoes that I received from you are perfect. Thanks

Poor Sole construction The leather soles on bates have always been reliable for me. I would change them out at the cobbler when needed. I picked up the Durashocks on the 00742 model since they looked really comfortable. The soles began to crack one day and less then 2 hours later had fallen apart. I am going back to my leather soles

Beautiful Shoe I was in the Army Bands Program for six years and had to spend a great deal of time polishing shoes for high standards of appearance. Out of service many years later, I play many community band concerts and still wanted to look good. I purchased these shoes and am immensely happy with them. They look very sharp, they are made very well, they're comfortable, and I found the size accurate. I wore them to a concert and got many compliments. These shoes are worth the price! I highly recommend them!
