    Today I found this Chelsea Boot at Zara: (can't link directly, it's the first boot you see if you go to www.zara.com > showroom > man > shoes) but hesitated to buy them since I was really unsure about their quality.
    Does anyone have any experience with Zara shoes? I mean they're obviously not high quality, but are they worth their 80 €? I really quite liked them and they fit well.

    Yeah, I'd like to know about them too. To my untrained eye, their dress shoes look pretty decent compared to others; leather soles that look to be sewn in, heels hammered with nails.

    I think the dress shoes they have on their website look horrible, but there were some nice ones in the store (and a lot of crap), a pair which I liked quite well was an oxford without captoe, slightly longer and a little bit pointed (really just a little bit, normally I am absolutely not fond of them).

    Zara shoes are mediocre quality, but if you like the look, they'll be fine. Think Kenneth Cole in terms of quality, but with better styling. Certainly you're not going to get an enormous amount of wear out of them, but you will probably get a couple seasons worth, and since they're normally pretty trendy, that's all you probably want out of them anyways, for $80-100, that's fine.

    Unfortunately I am not familiar with the quality of Kenneth Cole shoes but the rest of the information is certainly useful, thanks.
    Anyone to affirm/disagree?

    PS: just had a look at the Kenneth Cole online store and the shoes are considerably more expansive, more around $ 200, so I think 80 € for the Zara boots are quite a good deal or are Kole's just overpriced?

    Kenneth Coles are usually purchased on sale from various discounters, I imagine they'll go for about the same price as the Zaras, but generally the Zara's are good deals for E80.

    I've 4 pairs of zara shoes and I really like them, it's from the new collection, very comfortable and sometimes using all day without problems.

    Pretty bad quality. I would be surprised if Zara shoes lasted upto 1 year. I would expect 6 - 10 months ... assuming u are wearing regularly or semi-regularly.

    when I use them(Zara Men Shoes), it's like regularly at work, more less 4-10 hours day and feel it very comfortable, no problem at all, for the price I think is a very good deal in my opinion
