Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifully Made I bought these shoes in the chestnut color and they are beyond classy. When I wear them I feel 10x more put-together. I've been wearing them daily around the office to break them in, definitely a little stiff and heavy at first, but thats how you know they are made well ;) Perfect shoe for autumn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from half sizes, anyone? A lot of the other reviewers mentioned how comfortable these shoes are, and some even mentioned how they didn't even need to break them in. I DEFINITELY need to break mine in. I have long, narrow feet, so I got an 11, which I think is probably a half size too big. I think if this pair were offered in bigger half sizes, it'd probably fit more people better. Other than that, they're beautiful, top quality shoes, and they bring a unique touch to any ensemble. I'm sure in a few more blisters' time they'll fit like a glove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECTION. Period My philosophy has always been to buy the best, especially shoes, as quality is everything, and ends up cheaper in the long run, while providing happiness along the way. These loafers are The Best, I know as I've tried on every pair of quality loafers out there. While formerly fine companies are busy cutting quality ( won't name names) these fine loafers remain top-notch, with all of the style and comfort quality brings. Thank you! One quibble, these run 1/2 size big. Still the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend I'm sometimes a size 8 in Madewell shoes, but the 7H was perfect this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not a stodgy loafer I LOVE the new, modern look of this Elinor loafer!! The leather is beautiful, the fit is perfect for me. I wear a 6 so that's what I ordered. My foot runs wide, but I had no problem breaking in these shoes. They look and feel substantial. Many loafers are cut too low (too close near the toe area), and the heels are too low as well, giving off a dated vibe. These however are fabulously classic! Madewell, you did good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent classic loafer I'm wearing these loafers right now for the second day in a row, and they are so, so wonderful. I was very lucky to grab the last size 9 as a popback while they were on their deepest sale. I'm normally an 8.5 so I put an insole (from Aldo, which has some great ones) and now I can wear them without socks, which is perfect for my casual work outfits in both jeans and dresses. Because the width was perfect for me but the shoes were otherwise loose, I think these loafers are probably not wide for an actual size 9 foot. The leather is fantastic, buttery inside and out, and the black dye isn't rubbing off (a common complaint for the transport totes and other Madewell leather bags in dark colors, I've noticed), and I feel as long as I take proper care of these loafers they will last a long, long time and still look new. I did receive these with a crease on the front of one shoe, but that's the nature of buying the last pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Loafer I've only worn then once, but they were super comfortable straight out of the box. I had one hot spot, but imagine that it will break in after a couple wears. I would definitely recommend this shoe!
