John Varvatos Star USA 'Dearborn' Cap Toe Oxford
Horrible quality control
Don't let this review fool you....These are great shoes, it took about 5 days worth to break them in. They were super comfortable and looked great. Very classic looking cap-toe style. They looked good with almost any pant style. They have one major flaw! For some reason the sole stitching on the bottom of the show (right shoe, right outer row of stitching, right near the middle of the sole) would start coming undone. I thought it might have been a defect so Nordstrom sent them in for repair and they came back fine....3 hours of use later, the same thing happened. I took them back and got a new pair.....within 7-10 hours of use on the new pair, the same thing happened in the same spot....THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN ON A $300 PAIR OF SHOES. This is my first attempt at nice expensive dress shoes and from this experience will never buy John Varvatos again. Will give Allen Edmonds a try.
Loved, but had to return...
Returned these beautiful shoes because I could not get my foot in easily without a shoe horn. The V-shaped design of the opening doesn't allow sufficient room to slide the foot in. Otherwise, I loved them.
