Rockport is going downhill on quality. Not
only did this pair cause blisters and a long breakin time.
But, within 2 weeks they started to fall apart! Little bits
of plastic beads are leaking from the sole into the shoe.
I've been buying them for years, probably not any more.
This is second pair in oxblood for me. Also have a black
pair. The shoes require very little break-in and are
extremely comfortable. I am an attorney and wear them to
work. Also wear them to church and other places. They are
attractive shoes. My feet are narrow and I have the narrow
width. They are great for me.
And I do buy this shoe again and again. Last pair lasted 3
years. Now I have both a black and brown pair. I should be
good for 6 years. Takes a little long to break in. This is
the only site that had both pairs in stock for my shoe size.
Big box did not have any size selection in stock so I ended
This is my second pair Ellingwood's. I have narrow feet
(10.5 B); sometimes it's hard to find shoes that fit and
these fit very well and they perform the way they are
advertised. Sometimes I am on my feet all day and do a lot
of walking through airports etc.....these shoes hold up
well. Cushioning is excellent. For a dress shoe, it does
well walking through snow and rain. Cons would be scuffs
easily and shine is a little dull, but overall a very good
These shoes fit very nice, but the finish is very dull
compared to the pic online. I will probably keep for a
backup pair since they were on sale. I should have listened
to the review that said "You will not be taken seriously in
these shoes". They're comfortable, but they look synthetic.
I was looking for a shoe that is comfortable and durable.
I've only had them for 3 weeks now, so I don't know about
how durable they are yet. For my work I attend both office
meetings and construction sites. I like how comfortable the
shoes are. I've always been happy with Rockports for this
I have had a pair of these shoes for more than 5 years and
like them so much that I had them resoled. I will do that
again when needed. I am about to buy another pair. They are
conservative in styling, water resistant. The leather upper
looks great and is made so well that with occasional
polishing they look new. A great shoe for office and sales
