I already have a pair of La Canadienne Halle loafers and struggled with whether I could justify another pair. But these are just so versatile. In the DC area we have a lot of sloppy but not really snowy weather and these are wonderful in anything that's less than 2" of snow, including ice. Yet they're sharp enough to wear with my professional clothes. I'm careful to wipe off any salt or residue as soon as I'm inside. So yes, these are an investment, but if you need to walk a good bit in the winter and still want to look pulled together doing it, these are worth it. The silver chain on my black vernice is darker and less shiny than it appears in these pictures but I actually prefer the slightly darker cast.

Love, love, love these shoes! I was nervous spending so much but they are worth every dollar. Wore for 5 days straight over Thanksgiving in Boston (cold, rainy) on college tours, walked over 5 miles each day and my feet and back never hurt--and they always hurt after a day of walking! I have high arches and these fit perfect. Can wear with or without socks.

This shoe was perfect right out of the box! Love the color (wine), love the style, love the fit. I thought the shoes might be heavy because of the lug sole, but they are super light and a joy to walk in. This is my first pair of La Canadienne shoes and they won't be my last.

I border between 6.5 and 7 and ordered the 7 based on reviews - they're slightly large. I love anything by La Canadienne and only have boots so I was excited to try their loafers. They're excellent. A beautiful shade of dark taupe, they're extremely comfortable and perfect for travel because they weigh NOTHING. I have worn them without socks and there is no noise but I do wear either a Dr Scholls arch support or a custom orthotic. I'm thrilled to have these and thankful Zappos carries so many styles of La Canadienne.

These shoes are very expensive and I rarely spend more than $150 on a pair of shoes. However these are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I work in NYC and have to walk all the time. These shoes so far have been holding up. I read they run narrow. So, I ordered the wider size. They fit great. They are lightweight, beautiful, comfortable, stylish and durable. Yes, I will save my money and buy more La Canadiennes in the future.

Great fall into winter shoe. This is my 4th pair of La Canadiennes. I wear a 7-7.5 in most shoes, and take a 7.5 in this brand. As with my other three pairs, the shoes are extremely comfortable, warm, and elegant. They require no break-in period. They are worth the investment if you want a clearly well-made and durable shoe that wears well among many different styles. A classic shoe on track with current trends.

Quite deceiving. When I first saw them out of the box I was sure they'd be too narrow but in fact they felt comfortable width-wise, however I had not worn this brand of shoe before & will be upping it to an 8.5 as it feels just a tad short and being as I'll be wearing them in the winter months I'll need room for thicker socks. But overall I liked them.

Chunky loafers are fashionable and how lucky they are also practical and comfortable! For my feet the roomy toe box in this shoe is perfect. The mocha sueded leather is an excellent go-with-everything color.

Classy, comfortable, and light! This is a great twist on the classic loafer. The chunky style makes them feel casual and hip, and the patent upper glosses up your entire ensemble. Best of all they are comfortable and light, you can wear them all day. Only took about 15 minutes for them to form to my foot. They are pretty much the perfect loafer.

I desperately needed a flat shoe to wear with slim ankle pants. I'm in fashion retail so my 8 hour feet are very visible. These boy meets girl babies did not disappoint! I purchased the only color available in my 8 and half size and truly this deep burgundy is more interesting than black. My customers continually ask about the shoes I wear and I'm so happy to pass along this label and of course Zappos incredible service!

I have a terrific pair of Gucci loafers, black suede with a lug sole, that I absolutely love. Unfortunately, they are over 10 years old and have seen better days! Gucci no longer makes that style and I have been searching high and low for a replacement and I am willing to pay for them if found. And now I have found them! These are so comfortable but a great looking classic style that I can wear to work or on the weekends. I am between a 7½ and 8 and went with the size 8 since I will be wearing them with socks this winter. The shoes are not heavy but very lightweight. They are expensive but worth the investment!

It took a few wears to get these broken in but it was totally worth it. I love the look of these chunky loafers, and the idea that these can double as foul weather gear just makes me love them more. I got the wine vernice and it's a very, very deep wine shade and very shiny, very distinctive. La Canadienne shoes aren't cheap in in my experience the wear and the versatility make them worthwhile.

This is a gorgeous shoe with a great fit. It is a bit snug across the top of the foot but still fits very well. I found it true to size. Like all La Canadienne shoes, it is made very well with a solid sole. I'm sure it's waterproof like all other shoes and boots I have purchased from this brand. Very happy with this purchase! Thanks, Zappos, for carrying such a wide variety of La Canadienne shoes and boots. This one is a winner for slacks and skinny jeans and leggings.

Beautiful shoe and quality, just what I need for Denver winters, but the heel cup is much too tall for my foot and I could tell it was going to be a long break in period resulting in sore, rubbed back ankles, so they are going back.

Lovely shoe. Too short. I wear between 11-12. I wish La Canadienne would offer 11.5 or 12 in this shoe. Sadly larger footed folks like me are relegated to dowdy, blah shoes. Come on! Big foot types want to look cute too!! Please offer some extended sizes!

I ordered these. When I received them the they were very light weight and comfortable. The quality seemed great. For me though they were more casual in person than they appeared and I was really looking for a business casual shoe. These were more like a weekend shoe. I am returning them but they are very nice shoes, just not what I was looking for.

Great shoe, good fit even for my narrow foot. I just couldn't justify the price for a shoe that looks plastic and I'm not sure why the black is priced so much higher than other colors in the same material? It also squeaks a bit when I walk but if you plan to wear with socks all the time they should be fine.

Hmmm...I don't know, the jury's still out on this one. I want to love them. The style and look is perfect, just what I was looking for in a chunky loafer. They feel great on, very comfortable. But, they squeak! It's the sound of my socks rubbing on the inside. Tried them with tights. got the same disturbing noise. Without socks I get that horrible air bursting sound. Has anyone else had this issue? I've got other La Canadienne shoes/boots, but had this experience. Wonder if it's just this particular pair?

There is a split in the leather at the top of the back of one of the shoes; not on a seam. Granted, I've worn these shoes a lot in the nine months since I purchased them. But for the price, I expect them to wear much better than they have.

Noisy, squeaky shoes. Tried them on in the house and the soles and material lining the shoe, which is not leather, makes a lot of noise. Probably could have been avoided if they used as high a quality material on the inside of the shoe as the suede outside. I like the style. Comfort was surprisingly average, probably because there is little arch support - lining is essentially flat. Possibly because I was walking funny trying to be quiet.

Sad to say, I was disappointed in this shoe. The look is perfect. The leather on the vamp is very thin and bends all over the place when you slide your foot in. Very comfy, though. I found the shoe ran a little short. I wear and 8.5/9 and had to return the 8.5 to get the 9 which barely was long enough. No room for socks thicker than a common trouser sock. The real disappointment came with the squeak. For over $100, much less this price, I want a shoe that makes no noise when I walk. I'm not talking about heel noise, the sole is quiet. These make a terrible squeak/creak and air whoosh noise with every step. Maybe it goes away after breaking in but for the price, I'm not going to take that chance. They go back.
