We love this classic darby, revisited as a slip-on with an elastic strip under the tongue. Prefer a laced up look We're including a pair of laces for versatile styling. Beautiful leather craftsmanship.

So disappointed. :*(
I was eagerly awaiting the arrival of these shoes cuz I love the style, but they are really awkward and I don't know if I'll keep them. I ordered a 37, but one shoe slips off the heel when I walk and the other pinches. They are slightly misshapen. It looks like the loose one had someone try to shove their foot in there and stretched it out, and the other is bent on the bottom sole which makes for an odd and unintended lump inside the footbed of the tight one. I can tell they're not made of the greatest material. They also are really slick when walking, no traction. The toe room is just right on the 6.5, and they look super flattering with dresses, but I'm not sure the good points can outweigh the bad...especially for the price!!
Hi nebulous, Sorry to hear about your shoes. Someone will be reaching out. -Free People
i loved these when they first arrived. they were very snug and it took a while to break them in but once i did i wanted to wear them all the time. unfortunately that didn't happen because after walking for about 3 minutes on a gravel path the soles were destroyed. they were cracked all the way through! and that was after about one month of wear. when i walk in them now the sole bends right in half and it feels like they're on the verge of falling apart. i'm really disappointed with the quality of the soles.

I've held off from buying these oxfords for some time because of the negative reviews (too narrow, bad quality, etc.). I am happy to say these are a lot better than I expected. The leather is nice quality and the fit is GREAT. The shoes that I ordered (size 6) fit perfectly even though my feet are wide. I wore them around the house and they stretched a touch. I immediately wore them the next day while running errands and they were comfortable and received lots of compliments.
I bought the brown ones, and when they came in I was actually a little disappointed in the color. They were really matte and a lot more grey-ish than they looked in the picture. BUT they fit beautifully and seemed like they'd be really comfortable (and they are). I ended up buying leather conditioning wax, and now the color is PERFECT and I'm so in love with them, so definitely buy some leather wax and condition them, it'll make the color really rich and help to preserve the leather anyway.
Two strikes you're out !
I purchased this very cute pair of shoes twice. The first time a 38 which is my size, way too tight ! cute but tight so I have sent this back. Then I ordered a size 39 way too big !!! What the ,,, I mean really Free People so now they went back too. I really like the look but I can't afford to keep trying to get a perfect fit on these. You need better quality control here. Buy at your own risk.
So BEAUTIFUL but.......
I loveeeeee the FP brand shoes, they really hit the mark on style and comfort. However, I bought these both in black and in brown. They came in true to color(although I realize they all dont look the same), slipped on a bit tight, but were broken in soon enough! I wore them as regular city wear, once, maybe twice a week, not through puddles, or a snow storm, they seemed fine, then BAM! A giant hole worn through the bottom of the shoe. I went to my cobbler to repair it, as I figured it would be cheaper than buying a new pair, and he told me to just buy a new shoe if I loved them so much as he would charge me to remake the entire shoe and it would not be worth it. I am so sad, bc I bought two pairs, and this has happened to me before with FP brand. I LOVE these shoes so much and really want the new color, but cannot afford the poor quality....Also the leather is very delicate, If a splash of water gets on it, it wont come out. I would love to know how to clean/care for these shoes if there is a water mark or a scuff, as they are distressed and cannot be polished. Very upsetting, and I hope maybe they can work on the quality of this shoe for the future.

Great shoe. Everyone commented that the soles are slippery but that's only because they are full leather! Once you've used them abit they should scuff up fine. Runs a half size large so I'm glad I bought a 9 instead of my 8.5. Edges are slightly high, so they rub against my ankles but I figure that will hurt less once its properly broken into. Great shoe, great aged look.
I really love these shoes....however they are best suited for smaller feet or taller than 5' 6".. The toe box is just too long for shorter people....and it looks like you're wearing your boyfriends shoes to go with the BF Jeans..a tad too hobo...if the the toe were a bit shorter...I'd be all over them....they are darling though....
The style and quality of the shoe is terrific. However, the heel was so narrow, I couldn't even try them on. Even my daughter, who wears three sizes smaller than me and has dainty little feet, couldn't get her heel in it either. I don't know if they were defective or not. Both shoes were equal which leads me to believe that it's a styling error, not a manufacturing error. I returned the shoes (sadly, since they are so cute) and have been awaiting a refund.

Great Style Good Fit
Got these in the brown leather. They fit great, I take a normal size six so I got the Euro equivalent. I don't find them long in the toe area. They are slippery on the bottom, so I might have to scuff them up or go to a cobbler. But I wore them to a lunch date with no issue. Love the style, great with tights, shorts, dresses etc. Easy on/off too.
