My first pair of rounded loafers was black, I wear them a few times a week to work so I got a second pair in bourbon. I always get 10.5 in sandals or flats and that’s the size I got. I always get size 11 in boots. I did try both size 10.5 and 11 on at the Outlet store, the 11 flipped off the back of my foot. They are snug for the first day and loosen up around my foot just perfectly. They are so comfortable. I too wouldn’t size up, just wear them for a day or two to loosen up, in a good way.
Normally a 7.5 but between sizes on the chart based on length so ordered an 8. Only worn once so far so the heel is very still but I expect them to break in nicely. Wish there was more sizing guidance on the possibility of stretching because I suspect I might have been happier with my normal size. The bourbon colored leather is beautiful and high quality.
Interested in these loafers for a long time but nervous about the sizing. I’m typically a size 7.5 and fell between a 7.5-8 on the chart based on length. Decided to go with a size 8 in bourbon. I’ve worn them just once and the heel is very stiff but I expect them to beak in nicely. The leather is beautiful and high quality. I wish there was more guidance on the sizing and likelihood for the leather to stretch as I think I might have been happier with a 7.5 as I have narrow feet and the size 8s feel a bit large without socks.
The first time I tried the loafers on, I was nervous because they were snug. I ordered my usual size. But just like the card in the box said, they have started to give a little. Today was my third day wearing them and they just get more comfortable each time! The heels were a little stiff but they are already softening. Being winter where I live, I was happy with the level of warmth they provide as well! I love them so much, I went back and ordered another pair!
1st time getting real leather shoes/loafers and I’m in love with the quality! I feel like you can wear them for 20+ years. They are tight to start (8.5) which is my regular size, but read online to wear thick socks to stretch them out and they fit great now! Super expensive and classy looking. Will be buying more!
