Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant and understated loafers This type of shoe is difficult to do well, and difficult to style. It can look very "square" and preppy, and can sometimes come off as boring and conventional. These are pretty, the leather is high quality like all Madewell shoes, and the cordovan leather strap across the front of the shoe is distinctive. I would love them more if the toe were a bit pointier, but they are lovely, and quite comfortable. I am a 5 1/2 - 6 and ordered the 6, it fits comfortably, and is not tight across the instep like some loafers can be. Very nice shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel like Sophia Loren These make me feel like a very fancy Italian lady (or grandpa). The heel rubs a little, but not bad. Look very expensive and chic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Like buttah!" I admired these a couple of months ago and almost bought them, but I snapped them up immediately when they went on sale -- and I'm ecstatic! They're gorgeous and comfortable -- the best of both worlds -- and perfect for both "wear a nice outfit for brunch" to everyday wear. I'm pinching myself that I found these babies still waiting for me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best loafers ever. Very high quality! I grabbed these in two sizes when I could and went with my regular size. I don't think you need to size up in these at all. I was so surprised how comfortable they were. I walked in them barefoot for at least 20 blocks and came home without any blisters (!!) they are really high quality for their price and the inside of the shoe has some kind of bouncy cushion inside. I got the black and they go with pants, dresses etc. I'm regretting that I didn't get an extra pair in the burgundy or the other color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soooo Perfect! For starters, I NEVER write reviews even though I heavily rely on them. I know, total ahole. So writing a review for these shoes shows how much I love them. I've been searching for a solid year for the perfect pair of black loafers: wanted a classic yet updated look. I bought, and returned, at least a dozen. They just never fit my criteria. The closest I came were from a company that had horrendous customer service [Ever......lane] and were 4 times the cost of the Elins. Regardless to say, I wasn't expecting much especially since I got these on super sale. But man, was I blown away. Comfortable right out of the box, high quality leather and heel/sole, and just the right amount of modern (slightly pointed toe and pleather strip). I'm just over the top in love with these. Fit: they're sliiiiiightly large but not enough to size up. They don't slip off my heels or anything, but have room for an insert. I have narrow feet and they fit just right. So if you have wide feet, they may pinch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little black shoe My shoe purchase arrived promptly. The shoe actually fit. It looks nice with jeans or slacks. Pretty shoe. Love the design. Just enough heal. Comes in a nice box and packaging.
