The Lou Loafer in Leather

The Lou Loafer in Leather is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional loafer & great for play! True to size I was looking for a more professional loafer to wear at work. These are also perfect for going from work to play after! I should mention that because these shoes are pointed, the front will be scuffed quicker. Very satisfied with the leather quality and look. I tried these on in person to be safe, but runs very true to size. I have not had them for very long so cannot say how long it will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and stylish! These I am normally an 8.5 or 9 in flats and these 9's were perfect for me! They did not take any time to break in and instantly add a little polish to any outfit. The brown is tad darker than pictured. Definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfy fly tomboy style In my experience, Madewell leather needs to be broken in, and a quality leather conditioner goes a long way toward speeding this process up. But once you give these a couple of wears and some conditioning, they are fabulously comfortable. I'm usually a 7 (only take 7.5 for boots requiring thick socks), bought these in size 7, and they have molded to fit my feet perfectly, even though there were a couple of tight spots at first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful flats! These are beautiful and well-constructed shoes. The leather is soft and the finish is lustrous. A versatile addition to any shoe-lover's closet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Loafer! These were exactly what I was hoping for! I saw them recommended by many others on social media and they lived up to the hype! They are perfect for both casual and business settings and the color makes them very versatile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flats! Love the look, color, and feel of these flats everywhere except behind the ankle. You will definitely have to endure some pain before breaking them in! Now that they are broken in, though, they couldn't be more comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic loafer. Break in with care. These loafers are so perfectly simple. Clean design, quality leather, true fit.! Just be careful to break them in properly before wearing them without socks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic with a twist I've been looking for a pair of loafers for a while, but I didn't want to take the full-on plunge into a creeper loafer just yet. Then I found these.. I love pointed toes, and the cognac color is to die for- just as great in the photo as it is in person. I'm typically a 9 or 9.5, and I sized up to the 9.5 just in case (got them on sale so no returns/exchanges). I'm happy with the size, I think the 9 would have been too snug across my toes. The back comes up a little higher than other flats that I own, so I have had some blisters from wearing them. I think with time (and patience), they will be perfect. My next go-to shoe for the spring.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful (but painful) These loafers fit and look great, but ooh boy the blisters on my heels from breaking them in, (and I used moleskin to try to help.)
