I had an online-chat with a Zappos rep who told me I would probably be okay with 7's since that's what I usually wear in Uggs but I returned them for the 8's. If I ever wanted to wear socks with them (I usually do!) they would be too tight. When I put the Ugg Dakota bottoms (size 8) against my Ugg bottoms (size 7) it was almost the same size. When I did that with the Ugg Dakota in size 7 it was way smaller. I know this is a little confusing but I hope this helps because I couldn't find a review like this to help me. Love my Uggs!

Most disappointed as these slippers did not have the fit of past Dakotas. I gladly pay a little extra for UGGS as with such a brand name, I expect consistency of both size and quality of workmanship. As I buy a pair of these every year, I know what to expect. Sadly, the fit in the heel was way off - my foot walked out of it in the back. This had never happened before. Lastly, I found a possible explaination in the form of a sticker on the bottom of the sole which informed me that unlike UGGS of the past, this pair had been made in China. A message to UGGS marketing and you have just lost a loyal customer. If it ain't broke don't fix it. I finally bought a pair at a department store which had the correct cut. It's sticker said it had been made in Vietnam Nam!

I got these UGG slippers in red last winter 2010 around Christmas. Initially I loved them. The laces were a little hard to keep tied but other than that they were nice looking, plush and very comfortable. They started to look worn and a little grubby within a month or so of regular (in home) wear. I wore them for a few months and then stored them in the spring when the weather got warm. I got them out late fall 2011 and wore them a few times and the top stitching began unraveling on one of the pair. I was very disappointed. I thought spending this money I would get at least a few seasons out of them. I won't buy them again.

This is my first pair of Uggs, and they are the best! I normally wear an 8½ or a 9 depending on the shoe, so I ordered these in a 9, and they fit perfectly. From the moment I put them on, they were so soft and warm. They look great with my skinny jeans too. They are so comfortable that I almost forget I have them on. These are worth the investment.

I've been eyeing up these shoes for a while, and finally decided it would be a good investment. As of right now they are very comfortable, while at first they were a little snug. I originally ordered two sizes (a 7 and an 8, because I'm normally a 7.5) because many reviews said to size up, but I was still skeptical. Luckily, the 7 fit me perfectly, despite other reviews. They're more fitted, but if you were looking for something more relaxed, I would recommend getting a half size larger. Overall, the shoes are really cute, and are even better looking in person. I love them!

Purchased these in size 9 for my size 8 1/2-9 daughter. Her heel slips out the back. Odd because toe does go nearly to end of slipper. Tried to tighten lace, but now it is a mess and keeps coming undone. Thank goodness, Zappos is sending us a smaller size. Hopefully her heel will not slip out. Very cute shoes for Teens.

I love these slippers! I wear these to school almost every day, they are so fuzzy and warm. The color I got was Neon Violet, which is quite bright and sparkly but they are really fun and cute. The only thing I do not love about Uggs is that they sort of flatten down after you wear them several times. Overall I love these!

Super cute! These are great, but I found it odd that a size 9 had a much thicker insole especially in the heel area than size 8. I am a true 8.5, 9s fit comfy right away and may be fine for those who use them for in house only, but in my case I want to wear them barefoot only and outdoors mostly, then order up...so I consider myself lucky to be in between sizes, because they will stretch I assume about 1/2 size? And I want to be able to wear these without them slipping off my heel. So if you consider the stretch that moccasins are known for (see Minnetonkas), then really they are 1/4 to 1/2 size too large since I am 8.5 and 8 is perfect for me though at first a bit snug.

I dislike Uggs but I absolutely love these slippers! They are very comfortable. They have rubber soles. They are great shoes. They fit a bit big. I am a solid size 9 but I could have done an 8½ in these.

These are fabulous! Really great quality, much better than the Target ones I've bought the last few years (and had to replace every year). I'm usually about a 5.5, and after trying a woman's 6 (too long) and a kid's 4 (too wide), I went with a woman's 5 (just right!). The 5's are slightly tight (I have wide feet), but I'm told they'll stretch (or rather the fur will become less fluffy). Also, the customer service was phenomenal! I didn't know a company with such great service existed. :) And it's great when they actually own the product you're buying!

These are great! They are listed as slippers but the soles are tough enough to be worn outside and that is what I intend to do with them. I wear a size 8 in the Ugg boots (Classic) so I ordered a size 8 in these but after trying them on they were too tight. I exchanged them for a size 9 and the size 9 fits perfectly! I tried what other users did and put my Dakota up to my Classic Shorts and they definitely matched up. If you plan on ordering these, I would order a size larger than what you normally wear in Ugg's because they run small. These are so cozy warm and are like walking on clouds.

I bought these in red and love them. My boy friend loves me when I wear them so I ordered him a pair also. We love to wear them together and go places and get several compliments each and every time we wear them. When they get dirty we just wash them and air dry them good as new. They are so comfy we have to look down to see if we have them on. We wear them at the lake and the beach and they get wet and wear great wet or dry.

Love these shoes! Fantastic quality, plus really warm and comfy. Great for around the house, but also look cute with jeans and have an outdoors sole, so you can wear them out without feeling like you are wearing slippers to the store (which I happen to think is really tacky!). Pricey, but worth it, especially since you can buy new liners when needed.

I love these shoes. They are so comfortable. They are worth the price also. If you are a half size, just go up the the next whole size. I wear heels a lot, so this is a comfortable and cute shoe to wear. Love these.

Although Ugg describes these as slippers, I consider them to be shoes. In fact, they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn! I have a problem with my feet, and these are just the ticket.

I felt that the shoes fit true to size. I've owned this shoe in the past and the fit is exactly the same. I was impressed by the color and size selection for Uggs and also the speediness in which they were delivered.

These are wonderful! I have just gotten my second pair, after wearing the first pair daily for a year or more. They didn't really wear out but got beat-up looking, as I'm an artist and also an avid camper... (remote areas). They're very well made, very comfortable, and nice and warm when needed. The soles are great for outside activities.

I'm so obsessed with the purple, I think I am going to have to buy another pair because I fear I will wear out the first pair...and they are so comfortable that I keep wanting to wear them out, so I figure I should make one pair my house slippers, another pair for wearing out! I am a size 5.5-6, and I got a size 6. They will definitely stretch out a bit as the shearling packs down. The only thing with my current pair is some fleece missing near the pinky toe on my right shoe, so it rubs on my toe pretty badly, so I might look at getting them repaired by Ugg. When you get your pair, feel around the inside toe seams to make sure you do not have the same problem.
