I bought these shoes for work, even though they are men's shoes, because for some reason shoe manufacturers have decided that women don't need comfortable work shoes anymore. I specifically needed brown shoes for my uniform and these fit the bill (in fact they look exactly like the women's oxfords I bought six years ago). As I had hoped, by buying Dr. Scholl's, they were EXTREMELY comfortable. They came with gel insoles already in them, so they were very cushioning for someone who has to stand on her feet all day long (I work at a hotel). The downside, however, is that within a month they were falling apart. One sole has already developed a hole in it where it has worn through. The soles on both shoes are coming apart from the uppers. The rest of the shoe seems to be holding together just fine, ironically. The insole isn't coming out, as is typical among many cheaper-made shoes, and the upper is holding together just fine (other than it is separating itself from the sole). Overall, I wouldn't recommend this shoe to other people, but I'm not returning it either. I'm happy with the comfort that it provides, but for the price I didn't expect it to fall apart so soon. I know that if I returned it I would end up trading it in for the same shoe, which would likely have the same issues, or a different shoe, which might not be as comfortable or might just fall apart as easily. The bottom line is I'll probably end up buying some super glue and trying to repair the shoes myself.
