These loafers are absolutely incredible. I normally wear a size 8 in dress shoes and decided to get a size 8 for the loafer, though it can be a little snug, I’d opt for the 8.5 for a little more room. However, these loafers break in very nicely and is like putting your foot into a cloud they are so THAT comfortable out of the box.
If you prefer a snug fit that’ll stretch over time, get your dress shoe size, if you want a little more breathing room / have wider feet - go half a size up.
JE, if you’d like to send me another pair in 8.5 I’d happily take that offer!
