Women's Vivian Calf Hair Venetian Flat Shoes
I originally ordered these in my usual size 8 but exchanged them for a 7.5 after getting them and realizing the 8 was just too big. These shoes have quite a bit of stretch to them. After wearing them a few weeks I almost feel that I could have gone with a 7 (although they would have been VERY tight in the beginning).
The insole is nothing special, but they are comfortable shoes. I can walk all day in them. I have relatively wide feet (I order W for my running shoes) and these fit fine in the width. The calf hair is luxurious. I have received many compliments on these shoes.

I was looking for a cute and comfortable flat to wear to work. I took a chance on these. This is my first pair of Lands End flats. I was not disappointed. I ordered an 11W because I wasnt sure if they would be too snug in the width. Im glad I did; the width was perfect with trouser socks. The length was good as well. These are "walk out the door" comfy and wear all day flats. I even ordered another pair.

These are SO COMFY, you cannot believe. I was so excited to find these, and even more excited to wear that I have been finding places to wear them! The calf hair is perfect and makes them look even more luxurious.

While beautiful, this shoe is too wide, does not have enough arch support, and is a disappointment.

The shoes present exactly as shown on the website and also the right fit.
The shoes are of good quality. I've yet to wear them.

I think they feel a bit strange, but I like them enough to keep them. I did have to add an insole because the arch support felt weird! The fit is fine, I am more a half size and had to go up, so adding the insole made the fit just right. The shoe is very pretty and I like that it is a basic loafer type shoe. Seems well made. I haven't worn them outside yet.

Gorgeous, sophisticated, comfortable & incredible price!
First, I'd like to start by thanking the people out there that posted reviews on these shoes as it helped me decide to buy this shoes and pick the right size. I totally recommend this pair of loafers. They are timeless, comfy, and very well made. As with most shoes, you have to break them in...but believe me, they are comfy. The colour and print in calf hair is perfect. I wasn't sure about my size since for some shoes I am a 7 or 7.5 and for boots an 8 and I have a narrow/average size foot. But lately, when I have bought other loafers and flats I find I am an 8. So went with the 8 and it was perfect. I did a lot of research before buying these and looked at a LOT of leopard print loafers and these are a winner in terms of style, quality and price! I could comfortably say that these loafers beat even the most expensive out there. I love these shoes so much that I ended up buying a pair for my sister and another one for me because I know I am going to used them for many years to come...they are definitely an an all season shoe. For my sister I ordered a 7.5 and it was perfect since I have always known her foot is slightly smaller than mine but in general she is a 7 in most shoes. She tried my 8 and it was a little bit big on her. So I would go a 1/2 size bigger just in case. Now, here is the most amazing part, I live in Canada and the service that Land's End gave was simply amazing! This is the first time I buy from this company and they have the best shipping policy ever...free shipping to Canada, wow! This definitely allowed and enticed me not only to buy my first pair, but after that, order my sister's and a few days after my other pair when I decided I wanted an extra one. I'll be honest, if they had charged me for shipping I most like wouldn't have purchased these shoes, let alone 3 pairs on different occasions! The shipping charges would have made it impossible. To give you an example, I was checking a dress from a very large American retailer that has their stores in Canada as well but the size I wanted was only available in the US. So they can ship to Canada but guess what? The dress was 36.99 and the shipping 27.00 + taxes! Yikes!, When seeing that the total amount was like $70.00 I decided not to purchase the dress, it was just not worth it. They funny thing is that this retailer uses the same shipping company that Land's End uses to Canada...Long story short, I have to say that Land's End is a very smart company because by doing this they definitely open their market to their Canadian customers...they certainly have a new customer in me :) So all in all, I am super happy with my shoes, delivery only took a few days and straight to my door, packing was excellent, great service, great company. I'll sure keep on checking Land's End website to see what I can find and buy :) Keep up the good products and great service Land's End!!

construction issue on pair I received
I'm disappointed as these are adorable shoes, nicely made and comfortable except for one thing. The right shoe of the pair I received had an interior lump where the leather pieces overlapped near my little toe. This rubbed and irritated my toe within a few minutes of wearing around the house. Will have to return as there are no more available in my size.

Super Cute and Comfy!
I've been eyeing these shoes for quite sometime, so when the 30% off was offered, I decided to go for it. So glad I did! I got them today and immediately fell in love with the material, style, fit, and the pop of leopard these will add to so many outfits. I can typically wear anywhere from an 8 1/2-9 1/2 depending on brand and fit. I purchased these in the 9 1/2 and they are perfect with a tad amount of room to spare, which should be fine after being on my feet all day. I'm tempted to get another pair as I know I will be wearing these to death.=] Can't wait to wear them to work tomorrow with my LE skinny jeans, a crisp white blouse, and black cardigan! Thank you Lands' End for bringing us such awesome products with a great guarantee!!!
