Rated 1 out of 5 by Cyranod Very Narrow Fit
These moccasins are good looking and seem to be solidly made. They would be an outstanding value if it were not for the sizing. I normally wear an 8D, but ordered an 8 1/2 to give some added toe room. Unfortunately, these moccasins are VERY narrow, I would guess they are closer to a C than a D in width. This problem is compounded by the design, with a greater than usual taper from the arch to the toe. In addition, it seemed to me that the length was more like an 8 than a 8 1/2, although it was hard to tell because of the tapering. I returned them after trying them on, and would urge others to stay away until the sizing issues are resolved..

Rated 3 out of 5 by ColdMichigander Way too Big
I usually wear a 10 EE.
These came more like an 11 EEEEE
Way too big, returned without wearing anywhere.
Waiting for return credit or replacement of properly sized item.
Shoes/slippers looked like something I would use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Devoteddaughter GREAT shoe difficult to size
I bought these for my 95 year old father. Last year I bought him the bison shoe with the decorative tie on the vamp and the 10M were fine. This year, I order the 10 W because the M from last year see=med tight--way too long and too wide. Tried the 9.5 in M-length goof but too narrow. He ended up with the 9.5 wide and we added an insert. Very good looking shoe and very comfortable. He loves them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by StarofTX Proof Is in the Pudding!
And the "pudding" are the shoes themselves! I waited for a year before writing this review because I wanted to give an honest evaluation based on the performance of the shoe; the looks are a "given". Now that my husband has worn them for a good time now, I can honestly say. . . .he LOVES them. He liked them right out of the box. . . .and they felt good to him. . . .right out of the box. And now that time has gone by enough to give a fair analysis. . . .they have held up VERY well and he said they now have the feel of a comfortable slipper. He would DEFINITELY buy them again and. . . .trust me. . . .he is VERY, VERY, VERY picky. At 68yrs. old, he remembers how he liked the more "classic" look of the '60s and the tweed coats he used to wear to school. He has NEVER settled for less than perfection. So. . . .you can trust you're getting a quality look AND a quality fit. He normally wears a 10 1/2M and that's what he got. I was a little worried they might be too tight in the toe area because his foot is a "tiny" bit wide with a "tiny" bit of a high arch. . . .but. . . .he was absolutely good to go with the 10 1/2M he ALWAYS wears! Enjoy your purchase. . . .with confidence!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stanalee too narrow
Ordered size 14 EE and the toe box was so narrow could barely try on a shoe. These shoes are sized on the small side, just be aware. Normally a 14 wide in a New Balance item is very suitable.
The color and style were very attractive however, and hated to have to return them

Rated 5 out of 5 by DwightC Moccasins can last for years . . .
. . . if you treat them right. I have, and these have. I was about to order another pair, when I looked at the ones I have and realized I can get another season out of them. They are wonderful for beating around the house, mornings and evenings, and driving to the store. I wouldn't want to put a lot of miles on them--on pavement or on trails, they aren't meant for that, you'd tear them up and say goodbye to whatever arch your foot has. And in this climate (New Mexico), they are a spring/summer proposition. When it starts getting cold something with a shearling lining, or boiled wool, etc. makes more sense. But, as soon as these wear out, I will buy another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by juryforeman Comfort at last
Wearing the shoes from dawn to dusk. They were a little tight at first with my thick socks but have become more comfortable as worn, now being worn with bare feet. The padded interior sole and the arch support suite me just fine. Perfect as a house slipper but can be used to run out for a carton of milk or six pack. Great for driving to the city.
Yes, they are a little smelly at first but it soon fades. Looked for this type of footwear for two months, purchased and sent back two other pair from different suppliers. If or when these wear out, I'll be back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BulboRules Nice, with caveats
Nice casual shoe for around the house or office. A little bit of 'give' on the outside edge so not a good shoe for an uneven surface, as you may twist your ankle. Does have a scent, which lessens over time. Would work well as a driving shoe also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beck3 Great Pair of Moc's
These are a very comfortable pair of moc's and look GREAT. My wife likes how nice they look. The size is accurate. I read the reviews about the smell and was a little concerned, but I bought them anyways and I'm glad I did. The smell is not over-powering as some made it seem. Maybe it smells a little different because it's bison and not the usual leather smell that one is used to, I don't know. To me, it smelled like a leather shoe.
