Smart and incredibly comfortable if you order right size


Can't understand negative comments! I ordered navy/ivory on a special offer too good to miss, went for half size up as normal size not available. Even so they initially still felt slightly tight, but after wearing in house an hour or so could tell they would soon give - they are now amazingly comfortable & I don't want to take them off. They look best with trousers or jeans which I normally wear, add a touch of smartness and quality. Only complaint is that I'd like a pair in black and ivory rather than plain black. Not sure how they will wear long term but have worn them most days for about 7 weeks and still look fine.



Comfort and style


I've bought two pairs and get complements every time I wear them. I have a wide foot and wish you had more selection in the wide style.

Los Angeles


Very stylish but sizing not true.


During the sale in the local shop I bought 2 pairs of shoes. One pair are a good fit and felt like slippers when I put them on. The Dorset pair of shoes were not as comfortable, the padding in the insole seemed to form a lump under the outer edge of my foot. Although with wear this has improved I have had to insert heel supports to make the shoes more comfortable. The other problem is the actual sizing. The right foot felt slightly snug when I was trying the shoes on, the left having been on display so therefore previously worn. So far I have worn the shoes 3 times and have found the right tight as my foot has got warm. Toe and heel blisters. I'm hoping stuffing with paper will stretch the shoe. The other lace-ups I bought have been absolutely fine. The other thing I'm worried about is the durability of the soles. Both styles have quite thin shoes so I'm not sure how long they will last without being resoled/heeled.

Romford England


True to size?


Until now I have always found Hotter shoes a good fit.



Nice Style of Shoe


The style of these are classic loafers and were exactly what I was looking for as I needed flat smart shoes for work. I liked that they had a separate heel. However, despite carefully using the online size calculator (which suggested standard fit), I found these to be too narrow and the leather was hard and would have needed breaking in. I also didn't like that the insoles are not glued to the soles.


I love them, but had to send them back...


My shoes arrived today and I was so excited to put them on. I first notice two wrinkles in the leather on the top of the right shoe when unpacking them. One wrinkle was very pronounced. I put them on and the wrinkle got worse. I walked around the house and tried to decide if I could live with the winkles, but finally decided not. Upon closer inspection I noticed the tops had two different leather grains. The right shoe had a very soft leather..maybe that was the reason for the winkles. They were so comfortable. Sadly I will exchange them and hope that the next pair (I'm asking for an exact replacement) will come without wrinkles in the top.



Not true to size


These are at least half-a-size out in the sizing, and for a supposed Wide fitting are much too narrow. Sadly, as a lady with larger feet, I'm at the limit so these'll have to go back.



Would not buy this product again


I bought these in black patent a few weeks ago. The Dorset loafers seemed snug when I first tried them on but I have several Hotter shoes in the same size and width and assumed they would ease with wear. In fact, the opposite. By the end of the day of first wear, these were quite agonizing: heel blisters (which I haven't had for years, thanks to Hotter) and crushed toes. I left it a number of days for my feet to recover and then gave it another try. Repeat performance with sore toes and heel blisters. Quite unbearable. It's clear I won't be able to wear these at all which is such a shame and a fairly expensive mistake. Wish I'd read the reviews first, but these don't seem to be available to view when purchasing on mobile devices. Reluctant now to try again but I have ordered the Hamlet style (sadly not available in patent leather wide fit). Hope I am luckier with those.





Great quality but front half of shoes too long and - appreciate the extra wiggle room in toes - but these were clumpy and man like, I looked as if I was wearing policeman's boots! Returned them.



Too narrow


I really like the style of these shoes and looking forward to wearing these for work, but the pair dispatched to me were disappointingly narrow in their fit and unfortunately they had to be returned. So disappointing.....
