Rated 3 out of 5 by StriderMom Wanted to love unconditionally, but don't
First, I do want to say that I love the look/style of this shoe. I have a couple other pairs of Eastland shoes, and these fit nothing like them. After wearing them for only an hour around the house, my feet, which run a bit narrow but not enough for a narrow shoe, felt squeezed even though I was wearing a lightweight sock. I loosened up the buckles a notch, and the squeezing sensation was only slightly better. Another notch an hour later and the shoes were then too loose on the top and my heel was sliding up and down when walking. The hard plastic sole also makes it a bit difficult to walk without making a lot of noise, which I'm not crazy about. Maybe if I'd planned on using these as work-around-the-house shoes I wouldn't mind it as much, but I was hoping to wear these out and I dont' think the fit and comfort level are there. I'm going to try them one more time, but think they're going to end up in the clothing donation bag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LadyslipperMN Not the same shoe!
I bought a pair of these shoes (wide width) about 8-10 years ago and love them but one is coming apart. Despite a couple of reviews which said they are a narrower fit I decided to give it a shot and buy them anyway. Those reviews were right on the money. I couldn't even get my foot into the shoe as they are definitely NOT a wide width and the leather is extremely stiff. My foot is the same size as always but I have a wider foot than most people so it's very challenging to find shoes that fit properly. The problem is most manufacturer's are not making quality shoes with quality materials and seem to have no clue or desire to actually make a wide width shoe that is actually wide! Too bad since I love my Eastland shoes so I'm taking my old ones (which are actually in good condition except the sole and base are coming apart on one shoe) to hopefully be repaired at a shoe repair shop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newhouse1 Love these shoes!
I had a pair of these shoes for years and they were one of my favorite pairs of shoes. I finally had to get rid of them as I wore them out. I was looking to buy another pair and found them at JCPenneys. Same great fit as the previous shoes I had. Absolutely love the look and they are so comfortable that I wear them to work and for play.

I have a problem finding shoes that dont hurt my feet. These shoes are great. I have been wearing them on concrete and my feet feel fine at the end of the day. They run true to size

Rated 5 out of 5 by 26johnaj Great shoe for problem feet
I've searched everywhere for comfortable work shoes with a removable insole incase I need to wear my orthotics (tendonitis in my foot). These are perfect! Extremely comfortable. They're true to size. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveEastlandShoe Comfortable Fit
These shoes are very comfortable & can wear them for dress, casual or with jeans. They fit good & the price you pay is comparable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CeeDee78 Quality shoe; just think about sizing up.
I'd read others' reviews prior to ordering and noted that these shoes ran a bit smaller than some buyers had expected. So I took a chance and ordered one size larger than normal, and instead of medium width, I ordered wide. This common-sense size adjustment resulted in me now having one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I've ever owned.
Actually, this is my third pair of Eastland shoes and they all rank high for both comfort and quality. They look cool, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tinjen cute and seemed well made but not wide enough for my foot
These shoes are very cute. I loved them when I saw them online and even more in person. They look like they are very well made. However, I have wide feet and I ordered the wide width but that was still too narrow for my foot. I even double checked to make sure the label had a W on it which it did. I ended up returning them, reluctantly. I think you would be pleased with your purchase of these shoes if you can wear them.
