While they are a little hard to get on and off (not exactly slip-on!) the roomy toe box makes these shoes fabulously comfortable. They went right on my feet to a 12 hour symposium. Might have been risky if this wasn't my second pair from this Swiss shoe maker. They best part is they don't look clunky or hobbity. I chose smoke and they are dark enough to go with practically everything.

This shoe's leather is the softest ever. It is like wearing a fine leather glove on your foot.

Love these! The picture does not do them justice. The picture shows a funky or perhaps an "ugly" shoe. On my feet, they are stylish, yet different. Comfort is fabulous. These immediately became my favorite shoes.

These might just be my favorite shoes of all time and certainly the best purchase I've ever made through Zappos. They are insanely comfortable, a breeze to slip on/off, and the heel is just the right height. Needless to say, I also find them beautiful! Going to order another pair in a different colour.

These shoes have an endearing "rumpled" look to them--I was a little worried about the wrinkled leather but mine are not as deeply creased as the one in the picture. They come up higher on the top of the foot than a regular shoe but have an elasticized gore that makes getting them on and off pretty easy. The heel is a little under 1 3/4" square and an inch high. The "smoke" color is a nice dark brown. There is no arch support to speak of in these, but the heel counter is fairly serious and they fit well across the foot, with a wide enough box for the toes. I usually wear an 8 but buy shoes in an 8.5 or 9 because I need to add orthotics--I got a 40 in this style. The bottom liner does NOT come out, and putting a full-length orthotic in these made them too small. A half-length orthotic (Orthaheel from Zappos) fits, along with my foot, in a lightweight sock or tights. I anticipate a long and happy relationship with these shoes.

I tried these on and then the Dansko Solstice, there is no comparison! These shoes won hands down in look, fit and feel. They are more comfortable than any other slippers that I have ever worn! They feel like butter on your feet, providing excellent support and comfort. I found my new favorite shoes!

Love, love, love these shoes! But I'm right smack between size 39 and size 40, and must return them. Too bad but when I realized this, I did recall that I'd had this problem with Rieker's sizing before. I wear a straight ahead 8 1/2 medium normally.

Fantastic, comfortable shoe. Fit like a glove. I also ordered the same shoe in black, same size and it didn't fit...cut too high and to wide. Zappos policy is really helpful since you really need to try these shoes on for fit.

The sturdy sole with its buttery soft leather upper made for pain free days of continual walking on concrete. They look like they should be worn with the Sorting Hat from the Harry Potter films, but I just tell everyone they are my magic shoes, magic for my feet anyway!

I absolutely love these shoes! I waited for three months for my size to come back in and it was well worth it. The color is a bit darker then the photo but I had seen them in a store so I was expecting it. They are super cute with any type of pants from dress to jeans. The heel is just the right height, not tall but tall enough that dress pants or longer jeans do not drag on the floor. The shoes were just a tad tight when I first put them on but within a day or two of wearing them they loosened up a bit. This was expected since they were leather. Now they fit like a warm comforting glove. I did order up one size then I wear in Birkenstocks because I had tried them on in the store and knew to do this. I cannot say enough good things about them. You will not be disappointed!

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.

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.

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.

These are the cutest, most comfortable shoes! There is no padding or support, but they are really soft and pliable. They are a lovely color, real leather. They are lots of fun.

I loved these shoes. They were extremely comfortable shoes that gave a casual look a bit of style. However, I ended up sending them back because my foot slid around in them & I didn't feel like they gave me the support I was wanting in a shoe I intended to wear a lot! Disappointed they did not work out.

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.

Riekers Louise 80 shoe. Very comfortable, but not much support -- the whole sole is so flexible, I don't think I can walk on hard surfaces with them. They fit beautifully, and the ruching is cute. Heel height just right -- most shoes are too high for me! Needs a metal or firm plastic shank or something!

I bought these shoes to wear on a recent trip to Rome and Florence, Italy. They were touted as great travel shoes. THEY ARE NOT TRAVEL SHOES AT ALL! They stretch out very quickly and gave me little support. Good thing I was in Italy where incredible shoes abound and I was able to purchase better shoes. They are easy to slip on, but I have now slipped them off and sent them to Goodwill.

Cute shoes, no arch support, and they squeak! How can a lady wear shoes that squeak every step? I would maybe use my orthotics but that won't fix squeaking shoes.
