The Downtown Dappers are a pair of shoes that are exactly what they say they are. Feel good and walk with a smug little spring in your step with a set of derby oxfords that look classy and don't break the bank. Made with vegan leather and smooth rubber roles, the Dappers are sleek with a slightly more pointed toe and speak of a subtle charm. Derby-style lacing is less formal than the classic oxford style, so you won't feel too strange if you wear these shoes every day. As a lower-cost option, they still look nice enough to wear to a special occasion like a wedding or a big job interview.

Our best-selling Downtown Dappers are the perfect introductory shoe for a handsomely stylish person who wants to start dipping their toes into the more masculine end of footwear but isn't ready to spend hundreds of dollars on shoes. They come in a striking steely blue, a handsome sandy brown, a classic jet black, an eye-catching sharkfin grey, and a warm, confident dark brown. With smooth rubber soles that will last longer than the high-formality leather soles of other oxfords, the Downtown Dapper line of formal shoes are a great first pair that will make you proud to step out into public.

Each pair of Downtown Dappers comes with a complementary tin of neutral shoe polish.

Terrible customer service

The worst I’ve ever experienced. I ordered a pair of shoes. Emailed them to get a return response - none- sent them back- nothing. No refund, no offer for exchange - a waste of money and I had to pay to ship them back. Unbelievable.. no way to get a hold of anyone.

Hi Cory,

That's very strange, pulling up your order history and our customer service inbox, there doesn't seem to be any record of you emailing us - we'll have someone look into this right away and reach out to you ASAP with a solution. We apologize sincerely for this experience!

Second Pair

I bought my first pair of downtown dappers about 4 years ago. After 4 years of near daily 3 season wear, they had finally blown a hole in the toe. Outside of that, the other foot had a little crack where the heel meets the arch of the sole. For 4 years that honestly isn't bad especially considering I walk to the bus stop in the winter with slush and salt. (Naturally the leather isn't in the best of shape because of that, but that's also my fault for basically never polishing them)

Sizing runs big, I am a 9-9.5 usually and here size 38 fits very comfortably. My feet aren't wide but I like a spacious toe box that you usually can't find in dress shoes and these are great for me.

Love these shoes

They fit true to size, look great, and are pretty easy to break in. They do have a strong smell when brand new, but it goes away eventually.

Feel and Look Great

I love these shoes. They are comfortable on first wear and look very professional. I bought a half size down from my usual size.

Excellent shoe, a dream come true.

I was looking for a shoe like this for the past several years, and never could find it in a physical store, but this is excellent, a "normal" "mens" suit shoe that fits a woman's foot! No more hobbling around with knee-high boots under my slacks, now I have actual suit shoes and couldn't be happier. After the first week, I was ready to buy a second pair (even if my wallet was Not ready).
