Nicely made boot but runs about one size large if you want to wear barefoot. I normally wear a 9 but reordering an 8 1/2 to wear with socks in the winter. If barefoot, an 8 would work.

Exactly what I've been trying to find! I love the style of these shoes. I have a 6.5 in the traditional moccasins (Thunderbird II) and they fit perfectly, but I wanted to wear these with socks in the fall, so I got my everyday 7 instead of sizing down like others said. I love them. I have normal feet and a high arch, but these aren't too narrow like some noted. I'll probably throw some Dr. Scholl's inserts in to minimize the strip of cushioning that feels kind of unnatural since I ordered a larger size. The quality was good when I received them. Most of all, though, I just love how they look with shorts, skirts, and how they'll probably look with skinny jeans and leggings. Great find!

Needed to order a 9. Now that I know I rate Zappos a 5 star. They are especially great in handling return products. Thanks Zappos.

I got these in the brick color. They look very nice on and are pretty comfy, I just wish they had 1/2 sizes. I wound up with 1/2 size down from what I normally wear, slightly snug but better than being too big when it comes to a moccasin. They are really cute, and I've gotten lots of compliments on them, especially on the color, it looks very Native American.

Awesome shoes - true to size and good quality but it's true that the zipper starts to slip down almost immediately. It's okay. I still wear them and like them a lot.

Just like other reviews, order these a size smaller than you would normally wear. I went only a half size to be on the safe side, and I should have gone a size. They form nicely to your feet. The zippers don't stay up all the way but it's okay, I still love them!

Super cute boot. Really comfy. My only complaint is that the side zipper doesn't always stay zipped. The boot needs some kind of hook or something at the top to keep it together.

Super cute. I bought these when I was pregnant and wanted booties but not the height of heeled ones. They're very cute with leggings or jeggings and a nice neutral, but more interesting than brown or black, color. My only note is that they are good for short distances, but I wouldn't consider them walking shoes.

These boots are super cute and stylish. The only thing is that the red brick color isn't as deep as seen on the picture. It's more of a washed off red but still cute! It's a total must have.

I love these boots! They are very cute and comfortable. My only complaint is that they already show significant wear, and I've only worn them a handful of times. I ordered my son a pair of red Minnetonka mocs, and they looked old after the first wear. They scuff way too easy!!

I love these boots, I am a little concerned about the zippers not staying up after awhile. They do seem to open a little.

Absolutely love these boots! They do run a little on the narrow side but mold to your foot nicely and are extremely comfortable! Our pair did have an issue after a few wearings. One of the layers of fringe came lose because of loose stitching. I did take it to the local shoemaker to have it fixed.

Ladies with high arches similar to mine...even though these boots tempt you with a side zip for easy insertion, don't be fooled. It took me a full five minutes trying to squeeze these on and I almost gave up. Once I managed to get my foot inside somehow, I realized that the shoe was also a bit narrow (and I don't have wide feet). Bottom line: Don't buy if you have high arches or regular to wide feet. On the looks side, these boots are adorable and well made. So sad I had to return them.

Sorry to say these are going back. The seams in the heel area are very uncomfortable.

Sadly I am now returning my second pair of these boots. The interior seam finish on the left foot is much bulkier than the right foot which renders these shoes unwearable. The quality control is awful. If I could give it a minus star I would. Too bad as I would love to own a pair if they did not hurt the left foot because of the interior finishing.

I used to start every comment on Zappos with first of all, I love Zappos! My several recent experiences have changed that. I returned a defective Size 7 Minnetonka Moc which fit me perfectly. My feet are swimming in these. This pair has a thread hanging, which has already begun to undo the entire area it was meant to secure. Are these moccasin made in China now? I've come to know the dark side of Zappos' 365-day return policy: some of us are getting shoes that someone else has worn, and if Zappos doesn't carefully check them, shoes that show the wear. Two of the pairs I returned looked like something spilled onto the suede; the customer's attempts to clean them made the mess much worse.

Pretty color (green) but they are like wearing two pontoons, they are very skinny and narrow. Although they were tight across the foot, the length was so long that I was afraid the toes would curl up slightly due to the supple leather. If Minnetonka could just tweek the sizing this would be an awesome boot.

After reading the reviews on these boots I decided to order 71/2 instead of my usual 8. They are quite snug but after wearing them a few times they are already stretching out nicely to fit my foot. They are very comfortable. I am able to wear them all day without my feet hurting.

Just LOVE this moccasin. I read reviews and ordered up 1/2 size but it was too big. My actual size was perfect. The width was not a problem and my feet are a little wide. ONLY thing is they are a little darker and a little browner than shown. But still a nice neutral color. GREAT moccasins!

These shoes are really cute. I bought the taupe suede and they are definitely lighter than the picture but I'm still going to wear them. I usually wear a 7/ 7.5 and I bought a 7.5 and they are a little bit big but it made them more comfortable. These shoes are a little bit narrow so you shouldn't get them if you have very wide feet. Good quality. :)

They are cute, I wear a size 7, they fit just right. I purchased two pair, different colors. I imagine as I wear them they will stretch. They are just fine. I'm happy with the purchase.

I absolutely love the Minnetonka brand! I bought these in grey and they are beautiful! It took a little wearing to stretch the leather to conform to my feet (I often use my favorite trick to speed the process along. I put on a thick pair of socks, put the mocassins on and use my hair dryer to warm up the leather, making sure to move it around so you do not burn yourself or the shoe! Then make sure to keep the shoe on and walk around for quite awhile). I wear them mostly with an ankle length pair of jeans so far because it is still chilly and wet here. But I am sure that they will be really cute with skirts and shorts, too. I also have four pairs of the three layer fringe boots which I love and some of the leather soled moccassins that I first started wearing 20 years ago when I was in my early teens. If you do not require a lot of support, moccassins may not be for you. But I have added some squishy inserts before and it has been quite comfortable. I usually wear a 7-7½ and bought these in 7. They were a little snug, but I prefer that as the leather does stretch with wear.

Maybe the most comfortable shoes that I have ever owned (and I have wide feet with arthritis in one of my toes)! They are even good for walking in the snow.

Love my Minnetonkas! This is my first pair and they exceeded my expectations. Fit true to size and very comfy and warm in the winter, however they do not make my feet hot. Easily fit over jeans and leggings. Shaft height looks great with skinny jeans. Highly recommend!
