Rated 2 out of 5 by rdny09 great shoe if you're rarely on your feet
I work in a kitchen meaning I'm on my feet all day and the floors are painfully hard to walk on. I've bought these shoes 3 times now as an "I need a new pair of shoes for work by tomorrow" emergency.
They only last about 2 months on average before the bottoms of the shoes literally split in half, resulting in wet feet for the rest of the day if you walk on a wet floor.
They're also less than comfortable and require separate insoles to be installed. It's actually laughable when you remove the paper thin insoles that come with the shoes. You can feel how thin the actual sole of the shoe is too before installing the new inserts, it helps to understand why you can feel every pebble you walk on.
The only two reasons I continued buying these shoes another two times is because it was affordable compared to the legit brands costing three figures and they look sexy enough compared to the ugly blob clown shoes everyone else wears in a kitchen. However, for the sake of my poor nearly broken feet I'll be moving on to a different shoe... and brand all together.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TJSTL Low price but poor value
Although the leather and soles still looked good, after a couple of months of moderate wear, an approximately 4" section of the leather on the right side of the right shoe pulled away from the sole. JC Penney fortunately provided excellent customer service and took good care of me when I brought the problem to their attention. Instead of this product, I recommend Hush Puppies Leverage. I've owned several pair of them and, although more expensive, they hold up extremely well, making them a much better value. Feeling frugal at the time, I took a chance on the Nunn Bush product and won't make that mistake again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RedDogActual Sizing off - they run really big
I purchased these sight-unseen in my normal size of a 10 wide from JCP.com. When I put them on, they were too big so I went back to the store, returned them, and ordered a size smaller (9 1/2). After I picked them up, returned home and tried them on, they were still too big; so much so that I'm not even sure a size 9 would fit. Either my feet have an eating disorder that I have been unaware of for almost 40 years or they really messed up the sizing.
I like the style of the shoe, but the image on JCP does not reflect how glossy and shinny they are. I wasn't expecting such a high level of shine from them; something that turned me off about the shoe.
I have other Nunn Bush shoes in 10, so I'm not sure where or how they went wrong. I guess I'll stick with the feet losing weight theory since I lost 100+ pounds this year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Uncle These shoes are comfortable and look good.
These shoes are comfortable enough to wear in my office and to walk in to meetings across campus. They can be worn with business casual outfits or with a nice suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hubbyinstyle husband loved them first time worn!
AT the last minute before a very large family wedding my husband needed new dress shoes to wear with his suit. He wears a 9 wide which is difficult to find and wearing them the first time at the wedding was a concern. The shoes arrived just before the wedding and my husband loved them. He did not have to worry about breaking them in. He has purchased Nunn Bush shoes in the past so we knew the quality was there. These shoes would be fine with casual slacks or a a suit. The shine is medium so they can go either way. The price was good and the shipping was free. Very satisfied with this purchase.
