The Elinor Loafer in Leather

The Elinor Loafer in Leather is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect loafer! I've tried lots of other brands of loafers, but this is by far my favorite. The toe is neither rounded nor pointed, and the vamp is the perfect proportion looking from above. Quality of materials is excellent. I'm a size 10 and that's what I purchased online. I'm wearing a low profile footie sock so I don't get blisters, and I've worn them twice to work - long days teaching high school and after school activities -- and never felt any discomfort. I love the black ones with jeans, and will purchase the chestnut too. (I hope there's a sale soon.). This is the best footwear I've purchased from Madewell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Obsessed I really love these shoes. I bought them in black and they are super stylish and very versatile- they can be worn to work or you can wear them with jeans. The quality of the leather is top-notch, very soft and easy to break in. They are also true to size, I wear a size 7. I've received so many compliments just from the few times I've worn them. I kinda want to buy another pair just to have on hand once these are worn out (I'm pretty rough with my shoes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Shoe Ever? This shoe is it. It's dressed up and casual and edgy and classic all at the same time, with a little bit of heel. I commute several miles per day, so I have to have comfortable shoes that are truly made for walking. These do that job, too. However-- I'm surprised others found that these fit true to size-- I definitely had to size 1/2 size down, and I may have been able to go a full size down. The sales rep in the store said most peeps were also sizing down, and I noticed the shoes in the store were a bit stretched out, so I think these will continue to break in a bit. So I recommend getting your size right before buying. These were my big Fall splurge, but they're worth not buying another thing all season for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfy, classy Love these! True to size, comfy, classy, can be paired with workwear or add a little class to my grungier daytime looks (read: sloppy) I have bigger feet (size 10) and found this shoe to be more flattering than the similar one at Everlane. Theirs are too pointy and make my feet look veeeeeeeery long These are pretty flattering, don't magically shrink the appearance of my feet but don't magnify either. I dig.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish and comfortable. The leather is nice and soft--but not so soft as to be shapeless. I have only worn them once (sockless, 1/2 mile walk on concrete sidewalks) but there do not appear to be any break in issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Loafer ever! The leather quality is really good and it is soft, no need to spend several days to break in. Much better than the Bass loafer. Girls, just buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely These shoes are my first Madewell purchase, and they are just what I'd hoped. I'm typically a 38 in European sizing but sometimes go as high as an 8.5 for US sneakers. I purchased 8s, and they're a perfect fit. I think they will work with thin socks and without. I love that there's a bit of heel and, as the other reviewer commented, the leather is very soft. I'm delighted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are awesome! I just received these today and could not be more excited! I am a size 8 with narrow heels and the 8 I ordered fits like a glove. In addition to being gorgeous to look at, they are extremely comfortable and the leather is crazy soft. Perfect!
