    Comfortable and versatile

    I've been looking at these shoes for almost a year, and bought them as a birthday present to myself. I did need to return them for a half size up because my toes are a bit wide, but the return was fast and painless.

    The heel is the perfect height and very comfortable to walk in. I was slightly worried that the color would be too "halloween-y", but the cognac is more of a warm brown than the pumpkin shade that appears online. I can definitely wear these to the office, not just to vintage events.

    Stunning !

    Look amazing and comfy too


    I ordered a half size up because my size was not available, but they fit perfectly! They are beautiful, well-designed, comfortable. I love them so much!


    These shoes are so beautifully made, and the design is even better in person! Aside from these oxfords, I have a few pairs of boots from American Duchess, and I have never been disappointed by the fit in a 9.5. However, since the oxfords don't secure around my ankles like the boots do, I have some issues with the width. These shoes are too wide even after I purchased stick-in heel cushions to keep my heels from slipping out. They're great length-wise though, and comfortable for a day of light walking!

    Great but a bit darker than pictured

    Got these on sale and had to snag them. I do like them, but the color is noticeably darker than the photo -- instead of a brighter blue, mine are solidly dark blue (with perhaps a bit more of a green hue.) The decreased contrast probably makes them wearable with a wider variety of outfits, but if you're looking for a shoe that "pops"... these are great, just less dramatic than I was expecting. (I have Bernadettes in the original style in white/tan as well as cognac/black... the latter one is particularly useful for a statement shoe for a warm color palette.)

    On the upside for me, it seems like there might be a bit more room in the toe box than the original style of Bernadettes, but that's my (very subjective) feeling, dependent on my own foot shape -- and I might need to wear them more to know for sure.

    Overall they're great just be mindful of the color difference!
