The Jess Oxford in Cordovan

The Jess Oxford in Cordovan is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Felt like I was wearing my husband's shoe I actually work in a shoe store and buy Madewell's shoes because they are so excellent in quality. This shoe offers the same however it is so masculine in design I tried to love them. I returned them because after several opinions from other women who too agreed I was wearing a shoe that was a man's sized for a woman. Maybe the shiny too if it had pebbled leather I may have been able to pull this shoe off without looking manish. I adore Madewell but this is my fault for ordering as it even looks like a man's shoe but I adored the pointed toe of design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Oxfords I am really happy with these. I am an 8.5 and they are true to size. First day they rubbed a bit on one foot as I wear them without socks but by the second wear they were very comphy. There is a bit of shine but I really like it. They make my feet look narrow too which is perfect. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Masculine For Me and Shiny My shoe arrived and it's such excellent quality as Madewell always seems to be but the patent shine just did not work for me. The leather will crease and in time crack. I felt very boyish in this. I was so excited about the pointed toe of it which is all I wear. Just cut very high on the sides that it bothered my ankle outer bone. If it were at least sleeker for a woman's foot but it like the description very masculine. I felt I was wearing my husband's shoe. We could match indeed but not for me. I like my feminine side and wear it well this shoe however did not wear well with me. Unfortunately, this is going to be returned :( Even on sale I could not see myself sporting this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In love with these shoes I am a huge fan of oxford shoes and spent a lot of time debating whether to get these. Well they went on sale and that was that. They are shiny, but not patent leather shiny. Pointy, but not overly so. They are suuuuuuper comfortable. I wore them to work three days in a row after they arrived. The only thing I didn't like was that the upper part creased pretty quickly where my feet bend at my toes but I don't know how that could be avoided. They just look a little less crisp than I thought, but I'm going to enjoy wearing them in and having them be a go-to shoe for me, especially when my feet need some comfort! I wear 7.5 in most shoes. That's what I got in these and that was the perfect size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sharp looking shoes So far one of my best Christmas acquisitions. It is a multipurpose piece for all occasions. I had been looking for Oxfords for months from several brands and none had me convinced me. The sale price is great, but I would even bought these shoes at regular price. These are better in person!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Buyer's Remorse Here! I saw these oxfords in the store and didn't purchase. Then I went home and couldn't stop thinking about how bad I wanted them. My muse was Nicole Richie with her YSL oxfords that she would wear with couture, and also with vintage Levi cut offs and a cropped tank. Bingo. These literally go with everything. For sizing, I'm in between a 7.5 and 8, and I ordered a size 8. They don't rub a bit and no "break in" period necessary in my opinion. Buy them - you will NOT regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing shoes! I LOVE these shoes. They are absolutely beautiful. Shiny without being patent. Feminine shape. Pointed toe that is not too severe. High quality. Comfortable out of the box. Perfectly true to size. I love them so much I am tempted to buy a backup pair. If you are looking for a nice oxford, you will not be disappointed.
