These shoes are great. I wear them everyday and walk between 2-4 miles a day at work. 1 pair lasts me about 2 years. Well worth the money, plus made in USA.

The fit, comfort, and appearance were great. Since I have only had them less than two weeks I can't comment on the durability. If they hold up well I will definetely order from Bates again for other footware.

Best. Shoe. Ever. - by , May 09, 2016
5/ 5 Stars
I normally don't write reviews but Bates has served me well for many years and my recent purchase of these shoes came with a particular challenge that was easily sorted out. The world deserves to know how Bates stepped up to the plate. First of all, this is an amazing shoe! It fits like a dream, feels like an athletic shoe, and looks like a dress shoe. I am on my 4th pair of Bates oxfords over probably almost 20 years. Each pair has endured amazingly well. I put a lot of miles in every day. I probably walk a minimum of 3 to 4 miles a day at work and another 4 or 5 miles after work. Sure, I usually put on my sneakers for walking around the neighborhood in the evening but often times I'll just wear my oxfords because they are just as comfortable. I had a defect in the first pair I ordered - the right heel would make a fairly loud click every time I took a step. I probably could have gotten used to it or maybe it would have even gone away on its own. But when I found myself adjusting my gait around the office so I wouldn't make so much noise, I figured it was worth a call in. Bates accepted my complaint and wasted no time in sending a replacement. A+ customer service with a top quality, American made shoe that will last for many miles/years. I am a true believer and will absolutely be a repeat customer.

Overall, the shoe as is advertised. As to the size, it fit perfectly as per the instructions on the website. In regards to the comfort, the shoe is the most comfortable uniform soled shoe that I have worn, and the construction of the shoe appears to be of high quality. As of this time, I would order this shoe again in the future.
