Buying shoes is a true exercise in
frustration when you are 14 EEEE, or anything over about a
13 D. Rockport is one of the few quality shoemakers that
makes the larger sizes. These shoes fit snugly but were not
tight. The leather is very nice and supple and the look is
dressy without being too much for everyday office wear. I
like the simple styling of this shoe. I have owned several
pairs of Rockport shoes over the years and have never been
disappointed. I am on my feet at work for ten hours per day
walking on concrete and I look for comfort as my main focus
when buying shoes. Since I have a very wide foot, my shoe
selection is quite limited. I usually settle for an
uncomfortable shoe until it stretches to fit my foot.
Fortunately these shoes are different. These shoes were
sized as advertised and are light and very comfortable. When
these wear out, I will replace them with the exact same
A pair of formal shoes needs to be high quality and last for
many years. A modern, simple, and elegant style is needed
for use during important meetings, conferences, and formal
occasions. Plus, they must be comfortable for 10-12 hours.
These fit the bill perfectly.
