I wanted these for Christmas and got them. I'm in middle school and 5'2, and I got them in a size 7 1/2. So I tried them on this morning and they just fit. We have to send them back and get an 8. My normal size is an 8 , but I read the reviews on these boots and it said to go a half size down. I did, and I found you should get you usual size. The color might be just a tad lighter then it looks on the computer. I got the color grey suede and they are lovely. They are super cute and would great paired with jeggings or skinny jeans.

I had to return these super cute boots because they were too narrow in the front. Disappointed.

The product was packed appropriately. The shoes look slightly a different color than what's advertised as well as different colored stitching. I found that the shoes run a half size smaller, so if there's an option for that I would suggest ordering a half size smaller or a full size, because eventually they will break in.

These moccasins are very pretty, but as others have said, they are very narrow. It took me about three tries to get them on. I guess my left foot is slightly wider than my right, so the shoes are downright painful. I plan to take the left one to a shoe guy. If you have a high instep, or if your feet are the wider side of medium, these moccasins will need to be broken in or more. Width is not a problem I normally have - I tend to be pretty true to size.

I went with the advice of others and bought 1/2 down. I have very, very narrow feet. I normally wear a 7.5 and I bought the 7. The bootie is very narrow. They are a snug fit with the 1/2 size down. I'm torn because it DOES seem like it will stretch. If you don't have a narrow foot I don't suggest sizing down. Also the dye bleeds onto socks, just wear dark socks.

I LOVE these! I have them in yellow too! They are very comfy! I put an Ariat heel support in for comfort and they are perfect for all day running errands etc. They alos look really cool with long flare jeans.

I was so sad to have to return these. Mine had glue stains along the seams and sloppy stitching, did not look like the nice photo as far as quality goes. the sizing was perfect tho, I ordered a 6; 1/2 size smaller than normal. my other little concern was that the sole is not very structured or stable. My heel seemed to be bending over the sole, the suede is too soft to hold your ankle tight like most shoes. Disappointed cause I really wanted to keep them.

I couldn't believe how fast they were delivered. It seemed impossible. My moccasin boots are exactly like pictured. They wrap the fringe so that it lays nice and straight when received. They are size perfect and I wear them everywhere!

The best experience ever! I hesitated to order footwear (of any kind) online since you never really know how the shoes will feel. Friends encouraged me to try Zappos due to the ease of returning items. Well, the item is represented so well, that I am keeping the shoes and will never think twice about ordering on line, but only from Zappos. Thank you for such a great site!

The boot is super cute - but I found them to be slightly narrow - they may have stretched after wearing them awhile but I wasn't sure - so I returned them - but they are really cute!

I love these boots. They are soft and warm but they are not for north-eastern winters. These are perfect shoes to wear to about 40 degrees; and then the soles get too cold for comfort. Guess once they stretch (shoes tend to run on the narrow side), and an insert can be put in or thicker socks can be worn, they will be fine for cold cold weather. But as they are right now, think cool not cold.

Very nice looking but a little too narrow. Feet were hurting a lot from stitching inside. I hope they stretch some. Very nice looking, though!

Love this boot. It wears like a bedroom slipper. Sized right, but it is a little narrow, but I figure it will stretch. I did add an insole with a little arch as it was lacking there. Nice taupe color.

This bootie is actually quite comfy cozy. If longevity is what you seak, do not wear these when in the rain or snow. Although your typical dry brush will work just fine for water marks! The grey color looks darker online than it does in person but I still enjoy them very much!

I think these are super cute -- but they are the hardest thing to get on! I have one foot chronically swollen just a bit from surgery -- and have a terrible time finding comfortable shoes. I haven't given up on these yet, but am only wearing them around the house. Hope that they stretch out and become easier to actually get on. Several reviews said to buy a size down. I did not do that - and can't imagine how difficult that would have been. And there is no way I would ever get them on if I wore socks, so I hope those that said they fade onto your skin are not correct. Love Zappos! But if these boots don't get better in a day or 2 I'm sending them back. Wish they came in a Wide width.

These are adorable! I ordered my usual size 7 and they were too big. Sending back for a 6.5. Style wise, these are great! I can't wait to get the correct size.

Every time I order anything from Zappos, I have my item in about two days. Regular mail and free shipping. It's amazing. I don't know how they do it! This moccasin is lovely. I love the look and feel. I have been wearing Minnetonka moccasins since the age of seven. I begged my father to buy them for me after I saw the the fringe boot on another person. Always loved my moccasins. Thirty years later I am still wearing moccasins. Over the years I've had many styles and colors. I am an 8 1/2 in regular shoes because of my wide feet. But with moccasins I always order 1/2 size smaller (8) as the suede does stretch with wear and I prefer a snug fit with my moccasins. This is just my preference. The suede does stretch a bit so keep that in mind. This particular boot is just so cute. I highly recommend Minnetonka and Zappos!

I wanted to write this review to let everyone know about my experience with this shoe. Saw it online and immediately fell in love! Read reviews that said they stretch so you should order a size down. I didn't do that, because I would rather them be a little large than too small. Got the shoe and they were perfect and so super cute! The only problem is they were so uncomfortable! They were not too short, but they are just awkward. Not wide enough and forces your foot into an awkward position. I called Zappos and was ready to put these shoes in a box and return them. Because I loved them so much, I got online and read about a way to stretch these shoes since they are suede and it worked! If this shoe is too narrow or uncomfy for you and you need more wiggle room, simply put the shoe on with socks and use a hand held hair blow dryer to stretch them. Use the hottest setting and blow each shoe for a couple minutes - especially in the tight areas. Leave the shoes on as they cool and they seriously stretch! Repeat this process if you need them to stretch even more. I am wearing these shoes today and they feel perfect! I couldn't be happier now. They feel great and I'm glad I didn't return them because they look amazing! Hope this helps someone!

Returning for a different size and going up a size hoping it will fit. I want these shoes to wear in the house this winter...in Wisconsin people take off their shoes inside the house. I wouldn't wear these outside, they are more like bedroom slippers but shoe-like enough for the house. Hope the next size up fits. If your foot is narrow you might get away with your true size?

Moccasins! Brings me back to the '80s. These are the stylish update to that trend. They are certainly not dressy -- but throw on a pair of jeggings and you are set to run out the door for a casual cup of espresso or errands close to home. Fun shoe!

I've wanted these for about 3 years and finally saved up and bought them. So worth it! They are super cute and this color literally goes with everything I wear. If you're an in between shoe size I would pick the smaller size. They stretch out and run a little bigger. I find them a little uncomfortable with thin socks on so I wear a thicker short sock with them. They're by far my favorite shoes. Love them!

These are great shoes. I have had them for about 8 months and they go with everything. Jeans, shorts, skirts and everything else! They are comfortable and run true to size. I would recommend these to anyone. I get a lot of compliments on the and they are very stylish. 10/10!

Cute! Get lots of compliments. I would have liked a wider sole; it does not go to the edge of the boot, though I knew that from the pictures. Fun and easy to wear.

These boots are so cute and super comfy! They stretch out a lot so if you get them and they feel tight, don't worry, you just need to break them in! Tip for breaking boots in very quickly: mix together 1 part rubbing alcohol (I use 70%) and 3 parts water in a clean spray bottle. Next, find a very thick pair of socks and put them and your new boots on (you may have to tug a bit to get them on but that's fine they should feel tight). Next, spray the outsides of your boots with the mixture wherever they feel tight. After you have finished spraying them, walk around in them until they no longer feel tight. Take the thick socks off, put the boots on with regular socks and voila! Feels like you've had 'em for months. I have used this formula on almost every color of MM and it hasn't stained any of them but if you are worried, do a spray test on a small patch inside of the boot. As always very satisfied with Zappos and the product!

Super nice and comfortable. The zip goes a little bit down but it's ok, the shoes stay on feet. Otherwise, it sizes small. I do have another pair of Minnetonka (tramper Ankle Hi Boot) I wear on size 9. The Double Fringe Side Zip Boot model was too small and narrow in 9. I return size 9 and now I perfectly wear size 9.5.

Zappos is simply the best. Too bad these beautiful moccasins were too small. I normally take 8 1/2, which is what I ordered. I needed a 9. What really killed it was that they were very narrow. I always take a B width. These were probably an A width. Too bad. Because of the narrowness, I did not re-order a larger size.

Bought these boots because they were super cute, and had bought a pair of Minnetonka sandals from Zappos last summer that I loved! I bought a I/2 size smaller than I normally wear and they fit perfectly! The color is just as you see on the website, no surprises! Wore them around the house-they are comfortable!
