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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable I wore these for the first time last night and couldn't love them more. I love the full coverage - no ugly toe cleavage - and the spaciousness of the toe box. My right heel started to rub toward the end of the night, but it's nothing a little BandAid roll-on can't fix. Also, I wonder if these will stretch out over time, but given that I got them at a super sale price, I'm not too concerned. They add a nice polish to a casual outfit, but the animal print keeps them fun and funky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable shoe! These shoes are not only adorable but they're also one of the most comfortable pair I own! I received them in the mail yesterday and have worn them all day at work without any issues (and I'm on my feet for a lot of my day). I can already feel them molding to the shape of my foot after just the first wear. Would definitely recommend these loafers, I'm really thinking about buying the other colors as well!

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.
