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!

The size 10 was too large and the size 9 was too small. I loved the last pair of uggs I purchased but this is the third pair that will not stay on my foot or fit properly. Sad!!

I have always loved my Ugg Dakotas. The new ones I just bought are not the same. Ugg products don't fit like they used to, I will keep them though. Zappos as always...great!

These were way too tight. Need to have a bigger/taller toe box for my big toes. Love the quality though.

Delighted with the Dakota's fit on my narrow foot. That is because there is LOTS of fluff in the sheepskin lining of this model - unlike the Ansley, whose skimpy sheepskin pile allowed the slipper to slip off my skinny heel and called for a return.

Worth every penny! Beautifully crafted, well made and perfect fit. Definitely buy 1/2 size up though...so if you are a size 8 1/2 shoe, then buy a 9.

Amazing!! I was hesitant for months to spend the money on UGG slippers but found myself constantly looking at them online. After getting a little extra X-mas money I decided to just suck it up and order a pair. I'm so glad I did!! They're awesome! It's like walking on a fluffy cloud. They're great quality, thick, easy to clean and comfy as can be. I wear them everyday now. I'm very pleased with my purchase.

The slipper seems to be warm. However, the toes are too tight for me. I'm concerned that if I got a larger size, I would slip out the back. These are going back. So disappointed.

This is my second pair of Ugg Dakota slippers. I absolutely love them. I wear a size 9 1/2 shoe and order the size 10 slipper. The first couple of weeks the slippers fit snugly because of the shearling, but then they fit perfectly. This time I purchased the chocolate brown color (espresso). They look and feel great.

I love Uggs! These are warm and soft slippers. Takes a second to format to your feet but I would recommend. I definitely want a pair in each color!

These are the best slippers that I have ever bought. They were quite snug when I got them, but within an hour had molded to fit my feet perfectly. I can wear a 10 or a 10½; but 11 is too big, so I ordered a 10 and they work great.

I am going to love these. Extremely fast service by Zappos. It seems like I ordered one day and received them the next. The color was just as pictured, a deep blue that can look purple under some lighting. I ordered this color because the description had it and fuchsia as water resistant. Later when I looked on the Ugg web site, it had all colors as water resistant. Had I known I would have probably ordered another color. They fit true to size for me. I hope to order more in the future.

I am loving these slippers! I have been a faithful owner of the Ugg Coquette for probably 10 years - I have owned at least eight pairs. I found that after many wearings, the shearling at the heal would wear down to the leather, so I would have to replace them almost on a yearly basis. I decided enough was enough and I found the Dakota. They are super comfortable and actually keep my feet extra warm since they cover my heels. While the footbed is not removable, I think it would be possible to take it to a shoe maker once the shearling wears down and replace it with one of Uggs insole replacements. These are definitely keepers!

I have 3 pairs of these shoes. Every time I receive them I think they are way to small. They stretch out quite a bit. I usually wear a 8-8 1/2. In the Dakotas I wear an 8. Wetting the knot does keep the knot from coming undone. Love these shoes!

These are very comfortable slippers. Follow instructions to size up if you are a half size - I am a 7½ and the 8 fits well (a bit snug, but will loosen with time and not get too big). They are super warm!

I've bought a few pars of these for my family. This year none of them fit. All are too small. The next size up was too big. Found something different from Ugg.

All of my UGGs are size 10 so I ordered size 10 in these slippers. They are extremely tight (even for my narrow foot) and short. The sizing is so far off that they must be marked incorrectly! I liked the slipper and thought they might stretch a little and be OK. So I wore them for a few days. Of course they haven't stretched and now are non-returnable. What was I thinking? Zappos is great and would have taken them back without a problem. They are at least one size and maybe even two sizes smaller than marked.

I purchased these in the pewter color, and I love it more than the photo. It is a dusky gray color, hard to describe, but gorgeous. I average a size 8 in women's shoes. Generally an 8 in sneakers (8½ in Nike), and a 7½ in dress shoes or heels. I got these in an 8 and I am very glad that I did not size down. When I first put them on I was scared-getting my foot in felt like they would be too tight. But once my foot slid in, they fit snug but perfect. Then, after a few hours, the wool has mashed in a bit and they felt like they were built for my foot. They are the most cozy slippers that I have ever owned. Ugg never skimps in padding or quality. I am very happy with my purchase.

I order a pair of Dakota for my Daughter, I order her size but they didn't fit. I called customer service. I conveyed my dilemma to the operator and two days later, I received the correct size and color. Thanks Zappos! I will shop here again. I wish they had more sales!

These did not fit at all. I wanted to love them but the heel was very loose and my toes were squished. I ordered a half size up and they just didn't work.

These slippers are very well made & worth the cost. Be aware though, that they run very small. I had them on a shoe stretcher for 48 hours. I was surprised since Ugg usually run wide.

Great for indoors and out! I ordered smaller and exactly as predicted, they did stretch to feel comfy! As long as the toe is long enough this shoe will stretch first time worn. Also, there is now a stitch on the bow so it will not unravel.

Although these are some of the more expensive moccasins available, they are extremely comfortable and high quality! There's a durable sole so they can be worn around town or just in the house. They are very soft, but they run a little small. I always wear a size 11, but they were way too tight so I got an exchange (which shipped in 1 day!). I love ordering from Zappos because their shipping is so fast and their customer service is outstanding.

I freaking LOVE Zappos. I had Joey (like a baby kangaroo and he loves pizza), and he was the best. Always helpful, funny, and sent my Uggs our BEFORE you got the other's back. This is why I shop with you and tell everyone about my besties at Zappos. So, here's to 2016, and Zappos, and my friend, Joey...the baby kangaroo.
