Good shoes, but wish they could breathe better
By plantagenet, from Paris, France | June 17, 2010
Bought these shoes because I wanted to try dress uniform oxfords with full-grain leather uppers that are worn by US army and police officers. Having hesitated between the Bates 968 and the Corcoran's 1544, I ended up buying both. The two models look almost identical. However, I found the Bates slightly less comfortable (they have a thinner cushion insert) and, more importantly, they do not breathe as well. Moreover, all available descriptions of the Bates shoes state that they are "assembled in the USA", whereas the Corcoran's are "made in the USA", which makes me wonder about the origins of the Bates shoes parts. On the upside, the Bates shoes seem to be "military approved" (according to information on various web sites. In summary, I would buy again the same shoes: I recommend the Corcoran's 1544 for better comfort, but for me (according to the information I found on the Internet) the Bates 968 have a stronger US military uniform aura.

Shoe Size: Felt half size larger than marked
Shoe Width: Felt true to width
By Bruce, from Southern CA | February 01, 2010
This is a quality shoe, heavy and solid to the feel out of the box. It is a nice feel on the foot, and laces up well. The quality is high, and I went ahead and ordered a second pair immediately after receiving my initial order. I am satisfied with my online order.

Pleased with shoe purchase
By Anonymous, from Fairfax, VA | October 06, 2009
I bought these shoes because the stores that I went to did not carry this size and they were priced really well.
