I love the way these look. They are a beautiful shoe, but they make my feet bleed. After ordering and returning 2 other sizes (I'm a 10 but had to get 9.5) and wearing them as much as possible, I have still not broken them in. The leather is stiff and I have tried everything. I have resorted to carrying another pair of shoes with me to change into. I have normal sized feet, not too wide. I have started putting thick tape on the back of my heels while I wear them. If anyone can tell me how to break in these shoes, please tell me. I love them and don't want to give up.

This is a super cute shoe. But, for me, the advice to order a half-size smaller really didn't work out. The shoe is simply too small, but instead of just returning it (maybe because they were sold out of my regular size?) I tried wearing them, stretching them, all to no avail. They seriously hurt my feet and I have pretty much no hope of ever being able to make them fit. A fairly expensive disappointment, unfortunately.

Zappos is THE BEST! Whatever my shoe needs they fill it promptly with a smile. This shoe is exactly what I wore in H.S. in the late 50's and has stayed in style ever since. You can't go wrong wrong with a Weejun,pencil skirt, cute top and neat-o jacket even if you're 71 years old! I love looking fun and TRY my hardest! Zappos helps!!!!! I ordered these the first time without reading the the note about ordering a 1/2 size smaller- need to order down as they suggest. The burgundy are like the old cordovan. Good-o!

A truly classic loafer. I wore my last pair until the soles literally fell off. Like any all-leather shoe, this one is stiff and will require diligent breaking-in; but, once broken, it will fit like a glove. I've marked these 5 stars for comfort, but keep in mind I have a narrow foot. These are quite narrow - almost uncomfortably so. But, since I've been through the break-in process before, I'm confident that they'll be perfect for my foot, shortly. If you've a regular-width foot (or wider), I'd suggest going with the men's version.

What's not to love about classic cordovan Weejuns?! The style is a classic, and the burgundy leather is absolutely gorgeous. I'm not sure what weird sizing world Bass is living in though. I'm a true 7.5, but heeding the advice of the other reviewers, bought the 7 and the shoes fit perfectly in length. The width on the other hand - holy moly. I don't usually have a problem with medium widths, but I could barely get my bare foot in when I first tried them on! Keep in mind, however, that they do stretch in time, and I helped them along by wearing two pairs of slightly damp socks for a few hours and by using the hairdryer stretching method. It worked! Now they're snug, but comfortable. I've only worn them outside once and the leather is still extremely stiff and would definitely cut up my heel if I tried to go barefoot in them now - socks are a necessity.
