Women's Powder Belle Shoes
Reallly like this shoes/boots
I was afraid they wouldn't be wide enough but they are fine. THey are comfortable enough to walk in for over an hour and not have my feet hurt. The only problem is the lacing system - it would be better if the top was the same holes as the rest of the shoe and not the hook. Its a little hard to hook with the fur. Overall, I
like this shoe.

Ran way too small
Can't really say much about this except regarding the size. The shoe ran ridiculously small. I ordered a half size larger and it still wasn't nearly big enough. When I went to order a shoe 1.5 sizes larger, they were sold out. I am bummed as I was really looking forward to having a shoe like this for winter.

These are very comfortable, light weight and keep my feet warm and dry.
I love the brown with the faux fur. Adorable. I've had many walking shoes and always come back. One item that is bothersome is the top eyehook. The laces seems to continually slip off. I need to take a closer look to see if I'm doing something wrong but I'm always retying the shoe. HOWEVER, they are extremely comfortable and nice looking as well.

Love color and fit
Very comfy! I have wide feet and bunions. I ordered a size larger and they fit perfectly. We had some minus temps this winter and lots of snow. Couldn't wear them in deep snow, but my feet stayed nice and toasty , a good thing. Everyone loves them. Not sure how I like the way it laces, but it's okay. Got them on a really good sale. They are like a teal color , which is my favorite.

Warm, comfy, secure, good toe room
I have a similar pair from Lands End (w/o the strange fur) that are getting a little worn after 2-3 years of wear so I grabbed these on sale for next year. There is often not deep snow where I live so this type of shoe is great for most of the winter, and I don't have to drag around in heavier boots. I need good gripper soles and these are COMPLETELY dry and very warm. Yes, the fur is funky, I will put up with it since this is such an inexpensive way to get SUCH good function for my needs. The design is a little strange, the line of the shoe is a little lower around the ankle than I'd expect and the tongue is sewn in and meant to fold under, and it doesn't quite. Because I have a high instep I can lace it more loosely and just have the shoe a little wider. Like others found the 1/2 size up did the trick. I have nerve disease in my feet and need comfort, and non-slip. I also need room for thick orthotics, which these have with the soles removed. I ALSO need an adequately large toe box- unlike another reviewer, I found that this toe box works very well for my often- crowded toes. Suppose all this depends on your individual feet. I'm glad I did not let that review deter me. The purple is fun but also dark enough that it does not scream "teenager". I am rating 5 because the warmth, dryness, comfort and non-slip combined with the sale price more than makes up for the little odd things, in my book. This is especially true because I have SUCH a hard time finding shoes that will fit and work for my foot problems. Obvious from reading the reviews that others weigh the pros and cons differently.

Would be so much cuter if they changed the fur
I ordered 8 1/2 (my normal size) and 9, and 9 fits better. I ordered the Capri Seas and Rich Purple, which are gorgeous. Unfortunately, they both come with variegated beige/brown fur, which doesn't make sense because the hardware is pewter and the soles are gray and black - why the fur isn't gray/black (like on the black shoe) I have no idea. And the amount of fur - in person it looks even longer and more overwhelming. I can't imagine wearing these with anything other than boot-cut jeans that will cover all that fur.

Love these boots
As I had read, I ordered a half size bigger. They're very warm and not too heavy. I loved the brown so much I just ordered the black.

Great shoes for messy weather - warm and comfortable!
I ordered two pairs, one brown and one blue. The brown pair is a perfect fit with medium weight socks. I wear 7 1/2 but I bought size 8 as everyone advised. They keep my feet much warmer than my other slide-on shoes, because of the high tongue and the fur around the top. We've had a lot of snow here in NJ, so they are the perfect shoe for all the snowy, icy, and messy conditions I've encountered. I double-tied them and can just slide them on and go They have a good tread on the bottom too. It is lucky that I ordered two pairs, because the blue pair hurt the toes on my left foot and I had to return them to Sears- Unfortunately! - they were so pretty!

Great winter everyday shoes! Love the color! They do run small.
Love the color! Yes, they run small; I ordered a half-size larger as recommended and they fit fine. They are sufficiently warm. I get good traction on ice and in snow. I had ordered the brown pair and liked it so much I ordered the blue also.
