Rated 5 out of 5 by Carol Love this Loafer!
The Biella Loafer is my favorite loafer! I now have four pairs; red, grey, black, and brown. These shoes are comfortable the very first wear, no breaking in necessary. I have a difficult time finding flats that are comfortable as I have a high instep. The vamp on the Biella Loafer comes up high enough on the instep to enable me to keep the shoe on. I typically wear a size 7.5 in flats, but these shoes run a bit large, and the size 7 fit perfectly. I will continue to stalk J. Crew's website for more colors to add to my collection. Thank you, J. Crew, for making these fabulous shoes.

Love these. I am a true 8, they are a complete half size big. I think I'll try 7.5. Just wish I didn't have to pay shipping again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Crackled leather so comfortable
I had been eyeing the Biella loafers for months, but kept on trying on the patent leather versions in different colors and found them stiff and uncomfortable and thought made my feet look huge. I figured I'd give them one more chance and tried the Biella crackled loafers, and they are amazing! The crackled leather is much softer/more flexible, gives a nice texture and I think will show wear better, while still looking very polished. I could wear these straight away without breaking them in. Also for some reason I felt these didn't make my feet look as big as the patent version, not sure why. The brown crackled leather version has great red undertones to it and looks fabulous against navy or dark jeans. Very happy with the purchase and think these will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by underaredroof Shiny beautiful!
These shoes are gorgeous! They run about a half size large overall, yet have a narrow-leaning toe box. They are an absolute bear to break in, and I am a no socks kind of gal, so my toes are covered in blisters. But dang, these pretties are worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cinderalla21 A luxury trend
Amazingly surprised when I opened the box. These J Crew shoes are genuinely comfortable, made of superior, soft Italian leather, elegantly designed, while the brownish-brandy color is stunning and much richer than pictured. I was looking for a trendy - not too flat - loafers to use during my rush-hour commute in NYC. I am a size 5.5 and my big toe is almost at ¾ inch distance from reaching the tip of the shoe. For a foot a bit wider, consider size 6 but I'd suggest a shoe insert. Overall I genuinely recommend the shoes.
