You need to order these a full size down from your usual size. I'm always a 9, but I'm a solid 8 in these. I was dumb and didn't check the reviews ahead of time, but the most awesome Customer Service rep helped me find my size was cheaper on Nordstroms.com. Love you Zappos!

I've had multiple pairs of Minnetonkas, and have loved them all. These were really cute, and fit, but the stitching was very different from my past shoes. It was rough and placed poorly - would have ripped a whole in my knuckle above my big toe! Maybe it was a fluke but I'm going to order another style instead.

My daughter wanted these for Christmas in the taupe. She normally wears a 7, but these were too big. The 6.5 also too big. Ended up with a 6. Thanks to Zappos for easy returns! She loves them!

Minnetonka always runs wide, but I'm normally a 6. I had ordered this shoe from another company in a 6, but it was so wide and a little to big. I'm so glad I found a wider size range at Zappos! I ordered a 5, but it was still too wide and big. 5.5 fits perfectly. These shoes are so cute and comfy I'm glad I found some that fit my narrow feet!

I absolutely love these! They run a little small; I'm usually a 7.5 but got a 7. They are semi-wide, and I have narrow feet, but it's not a problem. The plastic sole is great because you can wear them outside. I like that the design is fabric instead of beading. I know a lot of people with beaded Minnetonka's, and the beads get pulled off. I've already gotten lots of compliments, a great buy!

These run a full size larger then what they're marked. I usually wear a 7 and a 6 was even a tiny bit big on me. Other than that, they're great shoes and very comfortable.

I usually wear a 7 1/2 - 8 size shoe. I ordered 6 1/2, and they fit perfectly other than the left foot stitching that came down on my foot. Bummer... it's a really cute, versatile shoe. The way the Minnetonkas are stitched it was very painful to walk (on just the left foot). I loved the shoes, but unfortunately I just can't wear them. The right foot was very comfortable. Buy from Zappos! They are quick and efficien! I can't boast enough about Zappos!

This is my 6th pair of Minnetonkas! I have their other moccasins in black and grey, as well as some sandals and boots! I absolutely love them. They are perfect for any occasion and match pretty much everything! You'll never wonder, what shoes should I wear? They are comfortable, super cute, and durable. Some advice after having so many: The bow in the front comes out easily and once it undoes itself, it will never stay tied! So I've wet the bow with water and let it dry and now they've stayed put! I've read that other people have actually put some crazy glue on the bow...go figure! Also, for added comfort, I've purchased a shoe insert from Aldo (I'm sure you can find them anywhere) and they definitely add a bit more support to these shoes, and make them more durable/last longer. They do stretch a lot. Order 1 to 1.5 sizes down! They might feel snug at first, but 1 or 2 wears will break them in. I normally wear a 8.5-9 in regular shoes, and I ordered a 7.5 and they still stretched a bit. My first pair was an 8 and now they are falling off my feet. Love these shoes! Happy shopping.

I love these freakin' shoes so much. They're so easy to put on so I wear them like slippers all the time. They also match and look cute with pretty much everything so they get used pretty often. The only problem I've had is that they stretched out a bit on me. I'm normally a 7 1/2 but bought a 6.5 because I knew this would happen. At first it fit perfectly, know with the continuous use of only 2 weeks, they've gotten maybe half a size bigger.

Great Mocs. Don't have much support but that's not what I'm looking for. I returned 7 1/2 for size 8 (my true size). Reviewers said size down. Nope stick with your normal size. Very cute shoes.

Adorable shoe. Ordered a full size down. They don't make the bottoms of the shoes quite like they used to. They seem more like a slipper than an everyday shoe because of this. Otherwise - love them!

These shoes are exactly what I was hoping for! They are so comfortable and cute. As commented previously, they run a full size larger than other shoes, so one size down was a perfect fit!

Love the moccasins. Had to return my first pair (different model) return was easiest ever. These are true to the reviews...order one size smaller than you normally wear. But they are an awesome shoe. I'm very pleased.

Brands I'd also recommend: none...love this brand for this type of shoe

I got a smaller size than I normally wear, thanks to the other reviews, so the size actually fits me perfectly. I am an 8½, and I got a 7½. After having these for a year now, I do notice that the inside will rub against certain parts of my foot very uncomfortably, so I do have to wear socks with them now. I did not have this issue the first six or so months that I had them. Other than that issue, they are comfortable. Like I said, I have had them for a year now, and they look just as good as they did when I first got them, and they still have great grip on the bottom. The style is unbeatable, in my opinion. The price on Zappos is great, too!

I really like these Mocs. The print on the top gives it extra uniqueness. I ended up with a full size smaller than I normally wear (10 but got a 9). They kept slipping off my heal, but I've worn them a few times now and they are not too snug. They are a little tight on the top of my foot, but I'm sure they will stretch.

Buy this pair of shoes one size smaller, but also be aware that they run wide width-wise. I have to return mine because they look weird on my feet.

Yes, these do indeed run a full size larger. I ordered the first pair a half size (instead of a full size) smaller, thinking the other reviewers must surely be exaggerating about the sizing. Wrong. Do yourself a favor by ordering them a full size smaller the first time because they're really cute and you'll want to wear them right away.

I should have paid attention to the reviews that said that I should order a size smaller. To remedy the problem, I inserted insoles from a discarded pair of sneakers. This helped! I could have sent the shoes back, but it was my mistake, and I'd worn the shoes long enough that I didn't think that would be fair to the company.

I've been wanting these shoes for a while now. I love Minnetonka and that's what I mostly wear. I live in tropical weather so these actually breath well for me and are very comfortable. I normally wear a size 8 shoe, but for some reason I wear a 7.5 in Minnetonka. Even if their a little small they eventually stretch out therefore fitting perfectly. The 8 when it stretches gets to become too big. Love these!

These are my favorite shoes I have ever owned. They WILL STRETCH OUT, so I went a half size smaller than I normally wear and they are still actually sort of loose. Not so much that I would exchange, because they are so comfortable I don't want to give them up. I wore them and walked all over the place in Las Vegas with ZERO discomfort. I have a history of back and hip problems from being a server for many years, so usually feel reduced to wearing ugly tennis shoes when I have to walk long distances....but not anymore! these babies are so dang cute, I can wear them with almost anything. The rubber outsole is SO lovely, it provides nice traction and lots of cushion on my feet. I have seriously considered replacing every pair of shoes I own with an entire line of Minnetonka moccasins. Seriously, I loved them that much!

These are great and the fit is comfortable. I ordered a half size smaller and my feet are a bit fat. I would suggest not wearing thick socks.

I love these mocs! They are so comfortable and pretty, I wear them all the time. They do run a little large so go a half size down and the stretch out over time. But worth it!

The leather shoes are awesome ! Kick around the house in these and if you need to run the trash out, then do it! Easy to get off and on and so comfortable! Wish I could wear them with everything! Maybe I will. They run a tad large so I went down 1/2 size, after I read the other reviews. The soles are definitely non slip on hardwood and tile floors. And the look is fabulous. I guarantee you I will go to the grocery store in these and just forget I have them on! But then they will be dirty! Oh well, I love them. Such a great price too!

Very comfy - true to size - great price points! I loved them and my daughter did too! So much so she "borrowed" mine and I haven't seen them since. So I suggest buying 2 pairs. :)
