After first use realized the rubber sole is peeling off the wood heel. Shoes look abs feel great but the quality is not what I expected from this designer, at this price.

These look olive drab green and have an extended toe box. The fit is narrow and very stiff.

OK, nothing special compared to other brands I checked out including Frye, A-E and Magnanni.

The color in the picture is misleading. Lead is definitely gray, not the nice faded brown in the pic. I know that should be obvious from the name, but I was optimistic it would be something like the pic. Also felt a little big. I normally wear a 13, sometimes 14; but this 13 felt too big. I would order a 12 next time.

Very nice looking and comfortable shoes. I have two of those but the sole is loose and they start squeaking a month after wear. With such an expensive price tag this is very disappointing.

I have ordered 3 pairs of these Varvatos boat shoes because my husband loves them so much. The leather is soft, comfortable, stretches nicely (but not too much) and goes so nicely with most spring/summer outfits. We have purchased them in tan as well. My husband wears a large size shoe, so it's great to find a shoe that runs up to size 13/14 and still looks very handsome on the foot.

I love these shoes, but after about a week the right shoe developed a really annoying squeak! This rendered the shoes unwearable. I called Zappos and they kindly refunded the shoes as defective. I have ordered another pair, but sadly they did not have the same color.

Looks really good, but very uncomfortable. Shoes are a whole size smaller than marked. It narrow and very tight. Not suited for wearing all day.

Love these shoe and I've only had them a few days. The leather is extremely soft but durable. Not a lot of foot padding but I wasn't expecting much; overall very comfortable. Runs a little on the large side. High quality shoe, I'll be buying a second pair.

I purchased the mineral schooner and I have to say, this shoe was way too narrow around the toes. The stitching on the sides of the shoe dug into my little toe. It was a disappointment because the heel was very comfortable. I have an average foot (not too wide or narrow) and felt this shoe was way too narrow in the toe box. If it was a bit wider, I would have kept them - back they go. I even ordered a size up - same issue. On a separate note, I also purchased the blue leather Schooners which are super comfortable. So I think its just the crinkled up style that is way narrow.

These are nice shoes. When they say Lead they mean GRAY. The picture hints a shade of muted brown, but they're not. After reading some of the reviews about size, I ordered a 1/2 size smaller and they fit perfectly. The only thing that bothers me is they're stamped John Varvatos-USA on the inside and the soles but they are made overseas. A little pricey no matter who makes them.

Nice looking shoe. I ordered the mineral in a 9.5 because that is the size I wear in every other shoe. It fits perfect. I al so ordered the Converse Cut for Chucks socks and they work perfectly with this shoe. I can't wait until it warms up to show these off. Very pleased with my purchase.

Great shoes! I have purchased my second pair to take on a holiday. The only downside is on extended walks, my feet could real feel the mileage.

My favorite boat show. I wear them to the office or out at night. They are great and comfortable. True to size.

Based on the price, I was extremely disappointed with the quality of the shoe. Within 5 wares (extremely non-abusive walking), the leather providing the leather insole had begun to peel back and detach in both the left and right shoe. In addition, the shoe appears to be detaching from the rubber sole near the head of the shoe. While I am very pleased with the style, the level of quality is highly unfavorable and makes me very hesitant to purchase other John Varvatos items.

Really disappointed. They are very uncomfortable. This is the second and last pair of John Varvatos shoes that I have tried and found to be really uncomfortable. They are narrow and the stitching inside one of the shoes is rough and makes it impossible to wear without socks.

Great shoes, by far the best looking deck shoes, color is really cool as it has a bit of blue and black. I normally wear size 9 but in the Varvatos Converse and boat shoes go down a 1/2 size.

Very nice casual shoes. Picture doesn't do the leather justice. Softest yet tough leather and very comfortable footbed. Feet feels good wearing these. Sizing runs large. Length and width. I am glad I tried it in a store first before buying from Zappos. Saved having to exchange it.
