Q & As

Rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable stylish shoe I am very happy with thIs shoe for the price paid. 06 October 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Comfortable, but wont last Was looking for a pair of comfortable work shoes that I could use for walking to and from work. These seemed to fit the bill. However while comfortable, I doubt I'll get 6 months wear out of them, after a few months they feel very flimsy, not worth the money 06 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comfortable wearing from the start These shoes were comfortable straight out of the box. Great walking shoes that are just what they look like, smart, waterproof and very easy to walk in. 16 December 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 Buyer Beware! These are really good shoes of the quality you would expect from Rockport however be careful as they come up a size too small. I ordered a size 10 which is the size I take in all brands of shoe and they too small. An 11 would have fit but John Lewis do not stock 11's so the shoes were returned which was a shame as they were great quality. Hopefully the buyer at JL will address this issue. I note another reviewer had the same problem. 20 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rockport Essent Brogue Waterproof Leather Derby Shoes excellent comfortable shoe - good value for money. Well presented in store, by knowledgable staff 30 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very comfortable I am on my feet all day and these shoes are very comfortable and look smart with a suit. I haven't had them that long so can't comment on durability but Rockport are a respectable brand so looking good. 28 January 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Buyer Beware These are a great shoe and good value for the money BUT they come up very small. I am a size 11, I wore them once and they crippled me. It may be they have been mislabelled - I suspect the pair I received are nearer a 10 than 11 and I still have the blisters to prove it. 04 December 2013
