I, too, was disappointed at first because it seemed too small, but remembered that often a slipper such as this stretches pretty quickly - and it did! I knew that a full size bigger would be too large, so I patiently wore them around for a few days and they did stretch. I'm very happy that I bought them - they are just what I wanted! But expect them to feel a half size too small - at first.

Unfortunately, sizing is off. This is a follow-up review. My typical size was at least a half-size too small, but the next size up was - yes, a half-size too big - walked right out of them. Otherwise, nicely constructed, comfortable and attractive. Perhaps they'll work on your foot. Disappointed with the sizing problem.

Alas, too small. These shoes fit well in the heel and sides and looked great but were way too small in the toe. I liked them enough to order a size up since 1/2 sizes are not offered. Hopefully the larger size will fit.

Although the shoe fit well, it did not stand up well to wear, and within a few days, the stitching is already coming out of this shoe.

Very cozy, durable and cute. I love these slippers. They fit my 8½ feet well (I sometimes wear thin socks). I was not happy with the fit of the Minnetonkas in either 8 or 9 (too small/too big!) - these are just right!

This slipper is warm and comfortable. The rubber sole is sturdy enough so I don't slip on our tile or hardwood floors and you probably could run out to get the mail or take out the trash. A little wide, but I have a pretty narrow foot and run into this with a lot of shoes.

Wear a 7 and purchased a 7. Have a problem with ingrown nails on great toes and bunions and was concerned about sizing at first. They stretched out within a day and are super comfortable.

These were purchased for my 81 year old mother. Mom said they are comfortable, warm & cute shoe for shuffling through the house. Mom has bunions, so it was great to find a shoe that felt good on her foot. Also, nobody beats Zappos for service. Zappos is my favorite place to shop.

I purchased a pair of these for my daughter three years ago. She absolutely loves them and if I don't watch, she will wear them to school. I got another paid this Christmas because the last pair are done for in my book. I would highly recommend the shoe/slipper, as does my 15-year-old.

Brands I'd also recommend: born, clarks, dansko, vans,

I absolutely love these moccasins! So many people complained about sizing and color! I got the chestnut ones, in my normal size. And I had these shipped in one day. It was free! I just got these and they fit amazingly! Also they get bigger, because that is what all suede does, so even if they are snug, they get bigger! The color was great! I am wearing them now and I love them!

Love 'em! Perfect, classic, cuddly moccasins to wear around the house. Nice, sturdy sole, so you can wear them to fetch a couple more logs for the fire. My only caution is that they run small, both in size and width. I ordered a half size up from my usual foot size and width and they were still a bit snug, but stretched nicely, as suede does. I highly recommend, just order a bit larger than your usual size.

I love these! They are so comfortable! I am a girl who lived in heels and wedges. Well one day I fell and sprained my ankle! Ouch! I am better but not 100 percent. I need flat , comfortable shoes for a while. I see girls wearing moccasins and I always thought they were so cute! I was like if I wore flats, I'd wear those! Well after what happened I have to be in flats for a while. I ordered these and they are so cute, warm and comfortable! At first they felt tight, but they soon stretched out just nicely! They fit very well now! Even after my ankle is healed 100 percent I will still wear these. I even want to order more in different colors!

These shoes are so perfect because they're not the dark gray but the light, on the downside they're are an 1/2 to small for me. I don't even usually where an 8 but a 7-71/2 and the 8 was to small. I thought maybe they'd stretch, not happening.

I bought these last year and they're still is great shape. I ordered a 5 and they were too small at first but with some wear and patience they mold to your foot. I love these mocs, probably the best price out there for the quality.

I usually wear I a size 8.5, but I got an 8. It was tight at first, but they loosened up & now they fit great. The tie became loose but they can be tied back up via YouTube instructions. Overall a great buy, doesn't seem like I'll get more than one season's wear out of them though.

These slippers were comfortable and warm, but the heel was so loose I could not wear them, and I had to return them. Otherwise, they seemed like great moc slippers.

I just ordered another pair of these in chocolate, as I have huge wide feet (size 11/12 W) and can never find slippers in my size and men's slippers just look too "manly" for me. I've had the same pair in gray for about a year, but they are showing signs of wear. I really like them and they are very comfy. I pretty much wear them all the time at home through fall, winter, and spring and expect more wear from them this time around as I'll be home on maternity leave from March-May. I ordered size 12 just so I have room to wear them with socks. So overall, a good pair of slippers, but only expect about 1 year or so of life out of them.

Size 9's were HUGE and too wide, so returned; Size 8's were at least 1/2 size too short so paid a lot and had them stretched. when I tried to tighten the laces, the right one was dry-rotted and broke so, another for new laces (nicer quality). Now they are great shoes. Love the color!

These were a 1/2 size too small. I am a 6W and the width was great. I have a narrow heel and these were like flip flops thru the heel. I have to return them as my toes were rubbing the front ends and it was driving me nuts after 1 hour.

I bought them for my daughter's birthday. The first day she wore them the stitching came out on the top. I was going to exchange them but now they are out of that shoe. Warm shoes though and she liked how they looked.

I recently just purchased a 9 w and they feel too small. Reading the reviews they are supposed to stretch. I hope they do or I will be returning them.
