This shoe is SO adorable. Like most Minnetonka shoes, it runs somewhat narrow but true to size (my feet are also on the wider side but it's never been a huge problem for me. I am a true size 8 and these booties in a size 8 for excellently (with enough wiggle room to wear with thicker socks in colder weather). I plan to wear them with shorts during the summer and skinny jeans during the fall! They might not have the best arch support (very thin soles) but you kind of expect that from a classic moccasin style shoe.

Normally I don't review things I buy online but this show is worth it! I love Minnetonka brand and this shoe was no disappointment. It fits perfect and is true to size mostly, enough room for a pair of socks. I love them and would recommend to anyone!

Awesome little shoes! Great addition to a moccasin collection for those days you're wanting a different look! These are my third pair of Minnetonka moccasins. I would have bought more by now but haven't needed to. The quality is outstanding! I still get complements on my first pair that are 6 years old.

I find Minnetonka's sizing erratic. The El Paso Ankle Boot runs large. I might have even gone a full size down but decided, instead, to wear thicker socks. Thank goodness for Zappos' speedy and free exchange service!

These moccasin boots are super cute on. They are comfortable and look great with skinny cords or jeans. I did find that they run long and a bit wide. I am a consistent 7.5 and am glad I heeded other reviews and ordered both the 7.5 and a 7. While I could have worn either one, the 7 actually fit better (with mid-weight, not heavy, socks). I imagine they will stretch a bit as well. I hope the stitching holds up. They are very neatly made with quality materials.

I couldn't be any happier with these shoes. These were my very first purchase from Zappos and my very first pair of Minnetonka's! They fit amazing. Very true to size, and they are super comfortable. I ordered them yesterday and they got here today at noon. I would recommend these to all of my friends.

These shoes are so comfortable and look even cuter in person. I got them in Taupe and absolutely love them. I am a size 7 but ordered a size 6 because Minnetonka shoes do run a bit large (depending on the person) but they fit perfect. Highly recommend these for the fall season!

I love these! Very comfy, and the sides look even better in person. They could be a little narrower, though. These are probably medium width. I got these in my normal size and they are a good fit with socks. Will be perfect with wool socks in Fall!

I can't say enough about these, I ADORE them. I have worn them in both snow and sand and they are still in great condition. The rubber soles work great on all surfaces and add the fifth star to the shoe. My only minor complaint is that water soaks through them quickly, but they are also quick to dry so this isn't a big deal. I get so many compliments on these and reccomend them to everyone!

Minnetonka for life! Love how lightweight and casual they feel. Got them in 7 1/2. A bit wide, but length felt right. I do, however, have narrow feet and sort of fall between 7 1/2 and 8.

I happen to be a Minnetonka fan have been wearing them for over twenty years! Love their moose hide mocs forever and this suede version - a desert bootie is the real thing! I had it in the moc version, too - but love it more as a bootie! Goes great with casual wear especially jeans - is roomy with enough space for a cozy pair of socks inside. Good sole - good last - great comfort and style. I highly recommend this particular Minnie!

These boots are extremely comfortable and stylish. I was warned ahead of time to size down. I usually wear 8.5-9 and I ordered the 8 and they are perfect with or without socks.

These are great, super cute and very comfortable. I normally wear a size 10, but ordered a 9.5 and they fit perfectly. I do plan to wear them without socks though, with socks they might be tight. Zappos is the best, really fast delivery!

Like other reviewers have mentioned, this shoe does run large. I usually where size 5.5-6, depending on the style, but a 5 in this shoe fit perfectly! Very comfortable, looks great, have gotten many compliments!

I had these in a cognac color that I bought elsewhere and wanted them in black. I placed my order with Zappos and I can't believe how fast I got them. Their customer service is fantastic. Thank you Zappos. I love the boots too.

Very comfortable. Super WARM even without socks. The sole is thin which makes maneuvering easy, but if you step on a pebble the wrong way, you can definitely feel it. I normally wear a 7.5-8 (depending on brand and if I'm wearing socks). The 7 was a tad tight (it might've stretched out but I wasn't willing to spend the time finding out) and the 7.5 leaving a bit of room in my toe. All Minnetonkas are like this on me. The nice thing about the ankle boots is that the ties help keep the shoe on even if you have wiggle room. The moccasins don't have this and they always slip off my feet when I try them on.

Very comfortable and are great if you have swelling feet. Soles are slippery though, especially if wet. (Beware in rain.) Look good with jeans. They do run large so order 1/2 size down.

Love these! The rubber sole feels pretty narrow when you first put them on but after a day's wear, they begin to mold to your exact foot. I normally wear an 11 in every shoe on earth, so after reading the reviews to size down, I was concerned. Normally, shoes skip a 10.5 and I thought going down an entire size would be an issue. Alas, I ordered the 11 and ended up swapping them for a 10 (that I got within 24 hours--thank you Zappos!). The 10 is perfect! So cute and I wore them to work yesterday and got a ton of compliments!

Love these "boots". The leather is a little thin, so they're definitely more of a slipper than a boot, but still very comfy. I get complimented all the time on them!

Have not taken these off since they arrived! So comfortable and cute. Per other Minnetonka reviews, I sized down. Ordered a 7 when I usually wear a 7.5 or 8. Only downside - the dye rubs off on socks and skin.

Very cute with skinny jeans/pants and even skirts and dresses! However, I was very disappointed to find the side, leather stitching on the top coming unraveled just after THREE days of wearing them... this really annoyed me too because of the price. I have been wearing Minnetonka mocs for about 6 years now and I thought these would be a nice change but sadly the whole shitty-stitching incident let me down (on Minnetonka) a little. :( Luckily I am crafty and knotted it back up afterward. Besides this, I really love wearing them and I think the grippy sole is awesome.

Well I buy these shoes and the stitching is unravelling on the left outer shoe. I really like these shoes and I'm upset after my first day of wearing them I have to get them repaired. :(
