Impeccably handcrafted in Spain employing fine Italian leathers and genuine exotic skins, Mezlan shoes have become the standard in unparalleled fit, comfort and quality. With a strong sense of innovation and heritage in traditional shoemaking, Mezlan oxfords, loafers and boots are sought after by men who demand the utmost in quality and sophistication.
This is instantly the sharpest looking shoe in my closet. It oozes style and personality without being too gaudy for a very formal or conservative setting.
The shoe does run narrow, as such I ordered a size 11 when my normal dress shoe size is 10.5. The fit is just fine.
These are very light shoes. Mine weighed in at 14.8 oz each, to be exact. To compare, my everyday black cap toe oxfords weigh around 20 oz each.
There is very little padding on the soles of these shoes, so comfort can be an issue. For frequent use, gel inserts are a must as the hard leather soles can really wear your feet out after a few hours of walking; especially if you walk on your toes and the balls of your feet as I do.
I would happily sacrifice a few ounces in weight for some extra padding inside the shoe. This would make the wearing experience much better overall, but is still a minor issue and an easy fix.
Overall, this is a great shoe for a man with style that wants to be noticed for sophistication in footwear. Pair with a slim-fitting grey suit and you'll turn heads all day long. Great buy!

Great shoe. I could not ask for a better shoe that bring out any suit. The price was exactly where I wanted it.

Have a few Mezlans, Tods and Mark Nasons but this pair tops them all.
Affordable quality and luxury at its best!
