Excellent Shoes & Service

The shoes are so nice you won't want to wear them for fear of tarnishing them. Staff was very friendly &helpful as well.

I would rate them excellent!

I have worn my Directors a couple of times so far and they are great! They were delivered quickly and without any issues.

Amazing shoe, amazing company

Firstly, these shoes are amazing. The quality of the leather is incredible, and you can tell the work that has been put into making these shoes is top notch. The stitching is perfect, and the shoes fit the way they should. Of course slightly stiff out of the box, I look forward to breaking them in. They take a polish very well on the supple leather after conditioning with Saphir Renovateur. Comfortable insoles and the hand-carved outsole is beautiful.

Secondly, the customer service at Hartt is absolutely wonderful. After having a slight size issue with my original purchase (ordering a half size too big... my fault), the team at Hartt was amazingly responsive, and very helpful getting things sorted out and having a new pair in the correct size sent back to me quickly.

My next pair of dress shoes will be Hartt’s without a doubt.

Thank you for business and taking the time to write this wonderful review. We hope you enjoy your new shoes as much as we do!
