These were TTS for me -8 with troublesome narrow heel and high arch - so it's not easy for me to find a loafer that fits well as these do. The toe box has plenty of room, important because I doubt that these will stretch out with wear ; My toes are average width and turn up a bit so this aspect is important to me. These shoes were comfy right out of the box. The black is quite sparkly and has a unique, funky look. These are fun loafers that make an interesting addition to casual clothes like skinny pants, jeans, shorts or some Boho skirts. Pairing them with anything dressy is just too much since the loafer style calls for casual. I love wearing them with stressed jeans and a tuxedo style blazer or modern styled cardigan and a plain white blouse. It has been fun to devise oxymoronic outfits with these loafers.
I haven't seen them in silver but am guessing that they are especially sparkly and showy. If you enjoy the challenge of putting together unlikely but stylish outfits, these are for you. I'm ordering them in silver although I can't yet imagine how they'll work in my wardrobe. But they are well made, an easy fit and the price is right....can't resist.

Cute but glitzier than photo
These are a really cute smoking loafer, and super comfortable. I was expecting more of a cream color rather than the shiny gold, so I'm returning because I don't need another gold shoe. They are definitely to be worn as the standout piece with plainer clothing. Otherwise would be over the top. Plus, it's a busy pattern. Wish I could justify keeping!

I ordered these shoes online and they are even more beautiful in person. Definitely a statement piece, great for fall! The pictures are accurate in color and design. They are made by Seychelles so the quality is excellent. They are extremely comfortable and I look forward to wearing them in the city.However, they do run big. I have another pair of shoes by this brand and they fit TTS but my foot slipped out of the 7 1/2 in these. I am a very consistent size 7 1/2 but will be exchanging these for a size 7 (maybe even a 6 1/2). I would encourage you to size down at least 1/2 a size.
Highly recommend this product!
Love these booties. I wore them last night the first time, so comfortable. I am very picky about shoes, beauty and fit are very important. I ordered a 9 and a 81/2 online, the 81/2 fit great which is my regular size. The heel is not too high, the cutouts are a nice unique touch and the color is true to the pictures. This bootie can be worn with a dress, skirt or pants. Hello fall!

Perfect Fall Boots
I LOVE these. The styling is unique and garnered many compliments. The fit is perfect. The color exactly as pictured. The leather is extremely soft. I've worn them every day since they arrived. At first I wanted the ankle to be a little tighter but after wearing them, it's perfect. They're extremely comfortable. I usually wear a 9 and did in these so the fit is right on. I have extremely narrow feet and they're perfect so they may be a little snug on most.

absolutely lovely boot
I agree with the other review: I, too, love these boots - I got them in black. since I have rather wide feet, I first thought I wouldn't be able to fit into them, but after wearing them for an hour around the house they fit perfectly, thanks to the soft, supple leather! I'll wear them with everything above ankle, including skirts, since the design is too beautiful to hide.
I fell so in love with the photo, I didn't pay attention to the reviewer indicating they "run small" Or maybe it was just that I was hoping she was wrong. She was right! And it's not just small in length. For me, they were small in width, too. Especially around the toe area.
It killed me to have to return these shoes. They are so incredible! I could just see the look on my girlfriends' faces when I showed up in these shoes. They are so beautifully made, and the details are absolutely extraordinary. I'm totally jealous if you find the 1/2-size larger than you normally wear available. These are the best!

I saw these shoes in one of my local anthro's as a return... and they were a size 5.5 and caught my eye right away! I normally wear size 5.5 for shoes and occasionally size 6. The size 5.5 fit me but was snug on the toes so a 6 would have done the trick. So sad that these are out of stock, the quality was nice even though it is a cloth shoe, and very sturdy. Such a pretty shoe and I can see it going with so much... I say anthropologie should bring this shoe back for spring! they would be perfect for spring!

Super Fun Shoes
I have been eyeing these shoes since I saw the in the catalog - once they went on sale I had to have them. They look just like the pictures, very attractive and while I haven't worn them yet they seem comfortable and well made other than that they run a bit small. For reference I usually wear a 6 1/2 and the 7 fits much better. I look forward to dressing them up with dresses and dressing them down with jeans - particularly for the sale price these are a great find!
I am very picky with shoes and i love these. I ordered the black/white ones. They are beautiful and comfortable! I found them to run tts and fit super well in my wide feet.

I bought these in my usual size and they fit nice. Plenty of room in the toe area. The white is more of a winter white color which is nice for fall. Only wore them for a few hours so far, but seem comfortable.

Excellent dressy flats!
I have so much trouble finding comfortable shoes. I'm often standing or walking for a good deal of the day. These look lovely and dressy and are quite comfortable. They work well with pants or dresses. I have the black and white pair. You mainly see the white, especially with pants.
OMGosh! I received these shoes today and I'm in love! They look 99% as shown. The leopard print material is very "rich" and the black hue adds to the classy look of the shoes. I say that because some leopard prints have a tendency to look cheap and too light in color (for my taste). I'm generally a true 8 1/2. I ordered the 39 Euro size as suggested by the size chart. Regrettably they were too small! My only disappointment is that I had to return them for a larger size! And I did...right away! I took them to my local Anthro and ordered an "Overnight" delivery for a size 40 Euro. No way I'm going to let these get away! The outfits I envision wearing them with are countless! Jeans, skirts, dresses, even shorts!! The only concern I have is how thin the soles are. I hope they don't wear out too quickly. Other than that, I'm also hopeful the size up will work and I can't wait to get them...again!!

They run true to size, but my foot wont stay in place. It wants to travel off the shoe. I would trip all over. Beautiful shoe. A shame!
Wow! I have received so many compliments on these boots. It's obvious why they sold out so quickly at the sales price. I'd look for a Dolce Vita product again!

Great boot for the price!
Dolce Vita shoes can be hit or miss in my opinion so I wasn't sure what to expect. The boot exceeded my expectations. It is well made, nice detail, fits me well. I would tell someone who does not have a narrow calf to NOT orderr them - the boot is pretty snug and I don't eventthink I will be able to fit jeans inside of them.
