Rated 4 out of 5 by Zen4 Not as comfortable as wished
These shoes look absolutely adorable in photos, but are not as comfortable as their suede counterparts in black. The calf hair, although incredibly beautiful, was very stiff, so I had to size up 1/2 size to accommodate my normal B-width feet. But the deal breaker was the leather laces which were thick and cut into my legs as I walked. I had to tie them tighter because the laces had some weight and would otherwise fall down. Not sure why J Crew didn't use soft suede laces instead. The leather laces looked & felt cheap. I was sad to send these back... However I opted to keep this style in black suede because I'm all about the comfort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by crewzing True to Size & Comfortable
I ordered my regular size 8 in these and they fit **perfectly**. I cannot speak to the feel compared to their suede counterpart, but I find these to be extremely comfortable. The heel height is refreshing for my wardrobe and my feet. In the leopard they look like a retro shoe with a modern twist - and I'm all about that. I like the slight sheen of the leather laces, and I think they are slightly more edgy looking than the suede laces. They stay tied surprisingly well too, and I do not find them to be uncomfortable at all. I paired them with the denim front-slit skirt today, but they will also look good with pants and jeans.
