The Clare Oxford

The Clare Oxford is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fit, comfort and style At first try, I was worried about the fit because it felt a little snug. Wearing the oxfords out all day turned out to be very comfortable, even sans socks. I should have gotten a half size larger, but no big deal, I think I just like a looser fit. I like the low cut at the ankle - wearing them with trousers/ankle jeans makes for a cool summer look. The color is classic. I can wear these for work and casual day-to-day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oxford is Awesome Nice fit, comfortable after a small break-in period. Looks great with jeans or dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort & Joy So, I drooled over this pair of lovely Clare Oxford shoes for a couple of months, waiting for it to go on sale. When it finally did, the Dark Night was only available in 7.5, when I usually wear a 7. I was glad that I did get the 7.5, as some of the other reviews also pointed out, the toe is a bit narrow at the top. To compensate for the little extra room around the rest of the shoe, I created some soft leather insoles, and slipped them in - which works great, especially if you wear the shoes without socks, in warm weather. The shoes are ULTRA comfortable, and look great with my Madewell shorts and jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I'm always looking for oxford shoes. The ones I usually like have a huge heel so they miss the simplicity of a good basic. I got these and although my right foot hurts a little (first day I use them) I can feel how comfortable they will be. Very simple and wearable! Oh! And true to size!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect walking shoe Bought these to add a cute touch to outfits while walking around europe and seriously perfect. I do have a skinny foot so the size 7H fit great. I think i got a small blister just the first day i wore them breaking them in, but that happens to every pair of shoes i get. I waited for them to go on sale and feel like they are totally worth that amount of money....:) feels like a piece of my wardrobe that will last for a longtime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect oxfords I have been looking for a pair of classic leather oxfords for a while and bought these as soon as there was a sale code. I'm so glad I did! They are gorgeous. I got my usual size 8. They are a bit tight around the toes, but they're getting more comfortable each time I wear them. My feet are a bit long, but they don't look huge in these shoes. Got lots of complements at work and even my husband said they're "cute".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits perfectly I'm a size 8 (occasionally 8.5, but usually 8). These fit PERFECTLY. I don't think I would be able to wear them with thick socks, but that's fine because I don't plan to. They are pretty comfortable right away and don't require a break-in period. They look really nice and not clunky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoes I ordered these oxfords and I've had them for a week now. They were very comfortable from the start, even without socks. They run true to size. It is true that they appear narrow, but do not feel narrow inside. The leather is already becoming more and more flexible (I've worn them twice). My only concern was that they look "very new". There's nothing wrong with that but I like when leather has a little more texture. I think the leather will age nicely and I will like them even more when it does.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and stylish I've been looking for a classic oxford and fell in love with the Clare as soon as I saw it. When my shoes arrived, I was concerned because they appear really narrow but the fit is perfect (I'm a size 7). I can wear these with or without socks and they're comfortable either way. The style is iconic ~ they look great with cropped pants, jeans, and even a skirt. I highly recommend these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect oxfords I just received my clare Oxfords in 7 1/2 and I absolutely love them. I'm usually an 8 in other brands when it comes to oxfords, but 7 1/2 fits fine. It's not too tight and still leaves a little bit of space to wear socks. It only feels tight around the toes area right now, but I'm guessing they will stretch out eventually. Other that that, the inside feels really comfortable and the sole it's very good quality. I've been trying to find the perfect pair of neutral oxfords and these are definitely the ones to go with my usual tomboy look. Thank you, Madewell!
