Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shoe! This shoe is gorgeous, especially the rubino color. However, it's definitely darker than the more burgundy color they show in the picture. These were an excellent value for the price since I picked them up on sale. They do run a bit small, since I'm normally a 7.5-8, and the 8.5 is almost a little narrow for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing find! These make an outfit SOO sophisticated and chic. Also, I have pretty wide feet so I usually have trouble finding a comfortable pair of loafers, but these fit amazingly! SO THANK YOU MADEWELL. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Leather Goods Madewell does leather goods very well indeed. These are very handsome shoes and the quality is excellent. These loafers are shiny, but not patent leather shiny. Dressy, perfect for work. I ordered a half size up because I have semi-wide feet, and I believe this was the right call. I do not normally buy wide shoes, but another reviewer mentioned she thought these ran narrow. Glad I listened.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress up or dress down Really love these loafers, the look very polished but I have worn them w cut off shorts and tee and they look just as great. I got the rubino color- it was much, much more darker in person then in pthe pictures- I actually had to check to make sure I didnt order the black by accident they were so dark! honestly wish they were a little closer to the color in the pic but oh well. Also- i think these run real small- I usually wear an 8, sometimes a 7.5, i got the 8.5 in these and my feet come up to the very edge

Rated 5 out of 5 by from on trend comfort. i really like these more than i'd expected to. they're a beautiful interpretation of the loafer mule trend. i got the rubino they're actually a really gorgeous deep burgundy color—darker than shown in the pictures. i love the beautiful shiny leather, and they give the look of a loafer with more ease and comfort. i got my usual size 6 and they fit perfectly.
