Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes but they sent me a display shoe... I ordered these shoes online because they didn't have my size available in the store. They are beautifully made shoes and super comfortable. Aside from the shoe - one thing I was not happy about is that when I went in store to pick up the order, the shoes they gave me were on display (I could tell by the sticker at the bottom of the shoe and wear). Pretty disappointing, but I'm not gonna wait around for another pair so I just kept them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Loafers I had these beauties saved to my favorites for months and then purchased as a Bday gift to myself. I tried on the 7 1/2 (as some people said to go down half a size), but felt that the narrower toe was just too tight. It could have stretched, but I'm glad I went with my normal size 8. I also experienced the day of wear on my heel, but now, these are as comfortable as I could have ever hoped. I even ran in them to catch a cab and they felt awesome. So ecstatic over this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO IN LOVE I never wrote a review before, but I had to for this pair of shoes. I've been looking for a pair of loafer but never came across one that I like in terms of style and fit and this pair had just about everything I was looking for. It is super chic and comfortable (which is a major plus for me). I am between 7.5/8 and decided to go with a 8 because I have wider feet. The 8 is a little big on me but I dont mind it because I can wear socks with it. Definitely a must buy. Madewell please come out with more colors!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shoe Best loafer I've tried. Does not rub on the back of heel like others, and you can wear no-show socks to increase comfort. Didn't take much breaking in, after 1 day they were already perfect. If you're considering loafers for work and professional wear, these are it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic These are gorgeous. I’ve been wanting a pair of loafers for awhile and haven’t had any luck with the style/comfort combination. Until THESE! The color is rich and timeless. The leather is of high quality. The first wear I wore a few minor blisters on my heels, but the second wear was a transition with ease. Very comfortable considering the style of shoe. I bought my normal size and they’re perfect. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Staple! I love these shoes! So comfortable and no breaking in time needed. Found that they run a tad narrow and are a bit on the larger side, but these have become a staple in my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for every occasion Super cute and comfortable! These shoes are even better in person. They are as cute and stylish as they are comfortable (from a girl with real foot issues). They work well with everything, from jeans to business attire, to skirts and dresses. Love them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Staple, Runs Small for Wide Feet The shoes are very comfortable and sharp looking. They can be work both professionally and casually in my opinion. I am usually 8.5 and need wide fit. I had to size up to a 9.5 for the shoe to even fit in the store, theres alot of talk about breaking in reviews and the shoe has only slightly loosen for me but I have only worn them for a few days so far, theres a chance these could get loser but I believe they will still be comfortable and fitting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chic, functional, and great for petite ladies I got these in December and have worn them every sunny day since. These shoes are chic and are very versatile: I wear them with my skinny jeans, dress pants and even boyfriend cut jeans. I wanted flats/loafers but always found that loafers had too many tassels/layers/patterns etc that made my feet look awkward for my size (I'm extra petite at 5'2", 99lbs). These shoes are flattering and work well for tiny girls. My foot size can range from 6.5-7.5 and the size 7s fit pretty well. They have stretched out a bit since I bought them. They are little loose now, but if I wear tights or liner socks they fit perfectly. I got mine in an English saddle color and they match everything. I live for Madewell shoes and these are now my favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a wonderful shoe I gave the shoe a good review, but I had to return it. Not the shoe, it was me. I have marginally wide feet and it caught me at just the wrong place. I was sorry that it just didn’t work. The leather and style is beautiful; just not for me.
