The Lou Loafer in Animal-Print Calf Hair

The Lou Loafer in Animal-Print Calf Hair is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great loafer for a streamlined look When I saw these online I was not especially impressed but I happened to see them on a sales associate at Madewell and they were so cute on! They didn't have them in stock at that store so ordered online. Unfortunately, for me, they were a bit too small. The fit is similar to the Lydia flat if that helps. I'm typically an 8-8.5 in madewell and had ordered the 8.5. Had to buy a second pair (final sale) in a 9 and those fit great. They're not bulky like some loafers I've seen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Striking color These shoes are really cute! The style, pattern and rich color are awesome. I definitely suggest upsizing by half a size. The only negative is there is zero cushion. However, they are still comfortable shoes. Would definitely exceed the 5 stars w some more cushion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love them These are such a versatile pair of shoes - I've owned a pair of leopard print calf hair loafers for a couple of years and decided to buy these to replace my well-loved pair. I've only worn them once, maybe 3 hours, and the insole is peeling up from the toes. Really painful first wear too - I'm a true size 7, maybe a little on the wider side but all my other Madewell size 7s fit great. Really disappointed, but if you have narrow feet I think these will fit well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful and painful Wasn't 100% sold on these shoes when I saw them on the website, but I ordered them and they are gorgeous! Got so many compliments the first time I wore them and they go with everything. However, I walked 3 blocks in them and my feet were literally bleeding afterward. The backs of each heel on both the inside and outside of my foot got such bad blisters that I couldn't walk the rest of the day and haven't been able to put them back on my feet in a week. It may just take them some time to break in, but definitely take protective measures so that doesn't happen to your feet should you order them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful These are beautiful shoes. The color is classic and will work with just about everything. I worried that they would be too tight (size 8, medium width) but they fit perfectly right out of the box, without rubbing at the heel or the toes. I think that they will remain comfortable for my needs but if you're walking long distances and want all-day wear, then like most flats, these will not offer enough support or cushioning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylishly simple Love love love these shoes. I will say that I can tell they are going to take a few wears to break them so I don't get blisters, but that's the case for me with all flats. Other than that, they go with everything. I wear them to work and on the weekends - they are my new favorite shoe. I got compliments from everyone in my office the first day I wore them and have also had several friends ask where they could find them. A must-purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Edgy Acessory This is the perfect piece to add edge to an outfit. I wore it with black skinny trousers at work and with jeans and a t-shirt on the weekend. Absolutely love! I also got tons of compliments on my first day of wearing them. As for sizing, it is slightly narrow which I read in previous reviews, I was okay because I have narrow feet however I have a friend with wider feet who usually sizes up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic edge Love LOVE these bad boys! The quality of these shoes are just as you'd expect with any Madewell purchase. These are classic with an edgy twist! Honestly, if the other colors were available in my size, they'd be in my closet now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect "borrowed-from-the-boys" I was looking for the perfect leopard smoking loafer, and I found it in these! The masculine style perfectly counter-balances any overly feminine clothes! I'm dying to get them in a matte black too!
