Review for Zappos Rewards Points
(What's this?)

from Falls Church, Virginia

This shoe is lightweight and incredibly versatile. I cannot say enough good things about it. It is dressy enough to wear to the office and works perfectly with jeans, as well. The best part is that it is extremely comfortable, on account of the leather uppers being so soft and flexible, the 'just-right' heel height and the shoes' overall lightweight. I normally wear a 7 wide, and the 38 fit me perfectly.

These are absolutely comfortable and dressy enough to wear with slacks for work. I love them! I can wear them all day and I never never wear heels. I do not even take them off when I get home, which is very unusual for me. I wear strictly comfort shoes. I am not even sure why I tried them, because I avoid heels due to how uncomfortable they are. They look good.

I love these. At first Zappos didn't have these in my size but I kept checking back. They are so comfortable. The soles are a little slippery on waxed surfaces though. I love the heel. I would get a pair in every color.

Brands I'd also recommend: I also got the Louise 93. I can't decide if it's ugly or cute but I LOVE it.

So very comfortable! These shoes are soft yet supportive. I love that they can be dressed down with jeans or up with a dress or skirt. The slight heel with the interesting shape makes them much more versatile than most flats. Felt true to size except maybe a little snug on the vamp but I think that is because the leather is so supple and soft and may stretch over time. Love them!

I had hoped to buy these in red but the size 39 was too small. Only black was available in size 40. I didn't really need black but these are so comfortable and look great with jeans or trousers, and with tights and skirts. Sole and heel are great for dancing too. I haven't walked really long distances in them but suspect they might not have enough support for that. I usually wear a wide with but have found that the one width available from this brand is wide enough for me.

Heaven, right out of the box! I read the reviews and they were accurate. This shoe looks great and is extremely comfortable. I think they will be my "go-to" every day shoes for some time to come.

This very well might be my favorite shoe purchase of the year. They fit true to size, so comfortable that I wore them all day on my feet right out of the box the first time. No blisters, no aching, just a great pair of shoes...going to look for more shoes and boots made by these Rieker folks. Thanks Zappos for all my previous returns of other brands before loving this one.

These are possibly the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned - straight out of the box. I forget I have shoes on when I am wearing them. The leather is so smooth and buttery. It's thin enough that the shoe conforms to your foot perfectly. My only gripe is that these do not really look good with a skirt; they are really only pant shoes.

I really like these shoes but unfortunately they are too big on me. I'm confused because Rieker 36 is my normal size and I have other pairs that fit me perfectly. I looked through other reviews of this Louise shoe and it appears that people think it runs true to size. So what is wrong with my pair? Would have liked to have kept, but will return.

I ordered Rieker boots a few weeks ago and fell in love with the brand so decided to try shoes. Wow! So incredibly comfortable. I have a wide foot but these fit like a glove, with plenty of room in the toe area. I have knee problems so worried about the heel since I have resorted to flats for the past 5 years. Leather is so soft. No break in period. Put them on and wore all day. Absolutely love them! Thanks, Zappos, for being patient in my quest for a comfortable heel! You are, without doubt, my #1 go to online!

I had been looking for a comfortable slip on shoe to just keep by the door for when I'm running out to the store or to walk the dog. They were super comfortable the minute I put them on, like slippers almost. They have a funky, Dickens/Laura Ingalls vibe that makes them more interesting than a loafer or ballerina slip-on. Love.

These fit like a kidd glove. But they do run about a size short. And they are very very soft. Gives the feel of a slipper if that's what you like. I was looking for this color to go with my gray things and it works well with the darker gray but not the light. Doesn't have much arch support but I wear a thin, 3/4 length custom orthotic anyway, so that works well in it.

Sturdy and elegant. Not as supportive as lace-up shoes but could easily spend an entire day wandering around city museums without having my feet hurt. Received multiple compliments the first day I wore them.

Love this shoe. It fit perfectly. Normally I wear an 8 wide. I wasn't sure an 8 medium would work for me, but it does. It was a little hard to get on at first. But once on it feels great and looks great.

The style of this shoe is cute for a casual shoe, and the one and one-half inch heel gives a nice look for wearing with pants. The shoe is comfortable for casual wearing, but the one afternoon when I walked around the city revealed that the inner sole is far too thin and gives little support. After forty minutes, the area under my toes was compressed and uncomfortable. I would not recommend this style for a vacation where you will be walking a lot around London, Rome, or New York. The shoe is marketed as "antistress," but is not well-enough constructed to live up to that.

Love these shoes...my "wicked witch of the west" shoes with which I wear socks that fit the description. The heels are wide for me, but my heels are narrow and my metatarsal arch is wide, so...overall they feel like wonderful soft leather ballet shoes!

I wanted to love this shoe. I was looking for something with a low heel that wasn't so boring. I have a pair of Rieker booties that I LOVE. The heel of the Louise 80 was perfect. Shoe was comfy. I loved the folds of leather. I agree with another reviewer, very Dickens like. But the toe. The toe. I just couldn't get past the super-rounded toe. I felt like I was a duckbill platypus in them. (Maybe because I wear a 41?) So back they went. So sad.

I've had a couple of pairs of Riekers that I've worn almost daily for 7 years, and they are finally wearing out. I wanted to replace them with Louise 80. Unfortunately, this shoe gaped around the top of the shoe and the heel was too loose for my narrow foot. I'll try again with another style, I guess.

I bought these shoes for a winter trip to Australia, and they were great: no break-in period, no blisters, comfortable, dressy enough with dark jeans. I could have traveled with these shoes only and been happy. Boots or shoes that don't lace/buckle up often slip in the heel for me, but these did not. Great purchase. One thing to watch out for is the gathering on the top of the shoe isn't necessarily uniform. For example, the left shoe may be more textured than the right one.

Just like other Rieker boots I've ordered, these are comfortable right out of the box, and stay comfortable all day. They are weirdly cute...someone I work with called them hobbit shoes. But they look great with pants or skirts. I just wish they came in more colors, because I'd definitely get another pair.

These shoes actually are very nice, but they just didn't quite fit. I usually wear either a 9 1/2 or a 10, and these, which I ordered in 9 1/2, were just a tiny bit too short. I think a 10 would have been to large, but of course that's moot unless unless Zappos was lucky enough to find Eugene Levy's soul mate because I received two right-foot shoes! I also have a pretty narrow foot, and these were too wide for me and gapped at the top, so even if I had had two right feet, I'd have had to return them. Back they go.
