These shoes are of excellent quality, simple and elegant design, comfortable and versatile. I typically wear size 8 or 8.5 in most shoe brands, and ordered an 8.5 after reading reviews and fit guide. I have had them for about a week and just took my first long walk outside after wearing them around the house for a few days to break them in. As other reviewers noted, they take some time to mold to your foot. My feet are a little narrow, and I may have to add some heel cushions, but so far these shoes are a dream. Nisolo customer service is excellent too. My one complaint is that the colors on the website are a little off, so if you are looking for an exact match to your wardrobe, try to see them in person; I suspect there is also a little variation from shoe to shoe. I am happy with these shoes and will definitely purchase from Nisolo in the future.

Rarely do I write reviews, but I am extremely happy with my Nisolo purchase. I had been on the hunt for a solid pair of Oxfords. A friend of mine recommended these, so I ordered the Oliver Oxford in Noir.
Keep in mind that they run small but will eventually stretch. I typically wear a 7.5 so I ordered an 8. They were a little snug at first, but after two wears, they fit perfectly.
They're well-made, classic and lovely AND support a worthy cause. I've received many compliments on them and am considering getting another pair. Thank you, Nisolo!

These are of the highest quality. The shipping was super fast, and I have been wearing them as often as possible in the last few weeks. I bought a 10, and it's actually a tiny bit bigger than I thought it would be (since most of the other reviews say they run small). They were a tiny bit bigger than my other tens, but then I can wear socks with them, so it works out well. They were a little more pointy than I thought they would be, but they are still SUPER cute!

These shoes are awesome! I was really impressed, how well made they are and they are super comfortable!

I really like the leather--it feels amazing and is really comfortable on the foot. It has kind of a matte (almost suede like) finish--at least in the honey, which btw is browner / less yellowish than I would have guessed from the computer image, more of a toffee. Also the footbed is quite well padded and soft, which adds to the comfort. They feel great to slip on just barefoot. I usually wear either a 7.5 or an 8, and went with an 8, which was the correct decision. The length is right, but because my foot is really wide/flat, the toe is too narrow--but I can tell it will stretch, because the leather is so soft (though not thin...I think it will last well).

These oxfords are amazing. They're true to fit and super comfortable. They're probably my most comfortable pair of shoes. If you're on the fence, just go for it! They're totally worth it. And the cause is worthy.

I've been looking for a good pair of oxfords without at lot of bells and whistles--just clean lines and good colors for a LONG time. The Oliver Oxfords fit the bill perfectly. I wish they would stock more colors year round, but that's my only complaint. I ended up with the Latte color (a little more yellow than I was expecting, but lovely). I normally wear an 8.5, but my feet are a little wide and the shoes felt too tight to wear with socks so I ended up exchanging them for a 9. Now they're roomy enough for short socks. They gave me some heel blisters on the first wear, but now that they are broken in they are totally comfortable.

I love these shoes. I ordered a 9.5 (I usually wear between a 9 and 9.5) and they are on the big side, but not big enough where I'd need to size down. They have softened up, and they are so comfortable to wear. The slate grey is a beautiful color, and I definitely want to order these in all the different colors!

They're comfortable and gorgeous. They're handmade by a social enterprise. They feel luxurious. Can't get enough of these shoes!

I was looking for the perfect pair of black oxfords...these have excellent construction and lovely buttery leather. Super great value for the price. I am usually a 9 and have wide feet, but based on the other reviews I ordered up a half size and they were huge. I ordered a 9 and they are a teensy bit big but it's not uncomfortable. The ideal fit as described on the tag is "snug in the width" so they can break in with a few wears, so that's something to consider. I'd love to get them in the latte (I'd also love if they made a navy!)

I have been looking for a good quality, pair of oxfords. I finally found them. These shoes are gorgeous and comfortable. from the moment I put them on I knew they were perfect.
by Jessie – 7th Jan 2013
These are one of the most stylish, comfortable pairs of shoes I own! The quality and workmanship is superb -- much better than some shoes twice the price. In terms of size, they fit true to size for me. I can't wait to spice up a bevy of different outfits with these fabulous oxfords!

These oxfords are incredibly comfortable, well made, and supportive. For the cost, they are an excellent value. I agree with other reviews that they run at least a half size small. I bought the Latte color, and had my local cobbler put protective coating on them. He commented on how beautiful the leather was, and how well the shoes were made.
I've had to exchange 2 pair now for larger sizes, which is frustrating, but the customer service was great. I will be looking for more Nisolo products for sure.

these are the most comfy little gems. i feel as if i am wearing house slippers. i read the reviews and took heed to get a little larger than my normal size and they fit like a glove. super soft inside.

Honestly the most comfortable pair of oxfords I've ever owned. You won't be disappointed. They do run a little small. I am a size 7.5-8 and I ordered an 8.5 and they fit perfectly. Enjoy!

These are just great. I love the look and the craftsmanship as well as the comfortableness of the shoe. As seems to be the case with Nisolo shoes for me, though, they fit lengthwise true to size but are a bit too wide. It is a manageable thing, but be aware that if you have a B width or smaller, they might not quite fit just right.

This is my second pair of shoes I've purchased from Nisolo. I got the Dori sandal this summer, but I needed something for fall and winter! These oxfords are awesome. I got them in the vintage gold color. They are a little darker in color than they appear online here, but they are fab! I have a really narrow heel, and these are fine. I ordered a 7 (my usual size) and they were a bit tight so I went up a size. The 7.5 probably would have worked, but I wanted to be able to wear socks. They are a little stiff when you first put them on, but y'all, they break in in no time.

Wow, these shoes are beautiful and comfortable when tried on. Have not yet worn for an extended period of time but I don't anticipate any problems. So soft against the skin, not like I'm used to with other shoes. Great value for the price. True to size. I have a wider foot and the regular size is fine.

I am amazed at the quality and craftsmanship of these shoes. For the price I am astonished!!! There are so many other companies who offer a similar style but mass produced and at a higher cost. These shoes need no breaking in time.. I usually wear a size 8 and found that the 81/2 fit better. I love these oxfords.. buy them you will not regret it!!!!
by Elizabeth – 30th Aug 2012
I thought these shoes might be stiff, being oxfords...but they are the softest most comfortable shoes I have. The insoles are like padded butter.So happy. I wear them with everything...skirts, shorts, long dresses, even fancy dresses to give myself a hi boho look.

I bought a pair this winter and love to wear these shoes! They are incredibly comfortable and the quality is ten times better than any other shoe I own. I find myself shopping and picking out outfits around these shoes just so I can enjoy them more!
