Women's Powder Belle Shoes
Not the usual quality for L.E.
Disappointed-- looking for cute and warmth-- not there.

nice but too narrow
I thought I'd try these because I like a low comfortable boot that can also be worn indoors. The shoes look nice and probably would be comfortable if they were wider. I need a wide width, esp for the width at the base of the toes. This does not come in wide, and the regular width was too narrow and hurt my feet. I will have to return them. Also, the reviews that say to buy a full size up are correct. They run very short.

Love These Snow Shoes
These shoes fit so nicely and are very comfortable to have on all day long. I am glad that I read the reviews before ordering them as I also recommend that you order 1/2 size up from what you usually were. I was so pleasantly surprised how warm they have been through a very cold winter! So worth the money. They feel like you are wearing tennis shoes.

These shoes seemed to be a great combination of winter boot and athletic shoe. After reading the reviews, I purchased a full size larger than normal to get the proper length, which they were. I have a very wide foot, but unlike other reviewers, I did not find the width to be any different than the average athletic shoe. Unfortunately, my heel slipped up and down in the shoe too much to be comfortable, but I have the same problem with some brands of athletic shoes, too, so it is not necessarily a fault of the shoe design. I ordered the Dark Wine color, what a gorgeous color, really wished they had worked for me.

I work outdoors so I was looking for something that wouldn't go too high like a boot and wouldn't be heavy to wear. These are great! I didn't even wear my wool socks just my regular and they kept my feet very warm and dry. I heard they run small so I ordered one size up a 7. Fit great! I would recommend!

Wear them with thin socks
I am usually a perfect Size 10 in LandsEnd footwear. My previous snow shoes were fabulous (similar style) and I have worn the soles smooth (not so good on ice). These shoes are a bit snug in the length, so I will have to cut my toe nails extra short! and wear thin socks. Hope this will be ok in the snow! I love the quality and the thick soles and the fur trim makes them look extra special, so I am keeping them.

These shoes are wonderful.
After reading the reviews, I bought a 1/2 size larger. I take a medium size and the larger size fits perfect even with thick socks. I love how comfortable and warm they are. They don't overheat my feet when I have been wearing them for hours. Agree with the prior comment on the shoe laces. I have to double knot them to keep from tying them all day long. I recommend these shoes for any cold weather and winter snow/slush. They keep my feet dry and warm. I love these shoes.

Very comfortable, a brilliant fit (go up a size)
Take note of the sizing & comments -they are a small fit so get a size up from your normal size - I did this & they were a perfect fit ! It's the first time I have bought shoes online - I was amazed how well they fit. Shoe shopping in person for me is an awful experience as nobody ever has my size ( I am above the average size but not a wide fitting) most shops where I live stock badly made, cheap imports in such odd shapes & sizes that bear no relation to any actual human foot - so nothing I try ever fits.
These are very comfortable & look attractive on so will be multi-purpose. Also they seem sturdy, well insulated & quite warm but as I am in the southern hemisphere & currently experiencing 40°C + temperatures, I have yet to try them out in situ.

Order size larger than normal
I ordered these shoes in my normal Lands End size and they were tight when I got them, I was tempted to return for a 1/2 size larger but decided they might stretch upon wearing. They fit tight now with a single sock and are comfortable. My only complaint and I haven't seen anyone else note this BUT I can't seem to keep the shoe laces tied. The laces are nylon and they tend to loosen during the day and I find I am retying my shoes several times a day.

ADORABLY, HORRIBLY UNCOMFORTABLE!!
I bought these even though I saw some poor reviews. I should have never done it! They are so cute, but they are SO uncomfortable! I did order 1/2 size up from what I usually wear and the fit was good.The fur at the top is so full that the tongue sticks up, making them hard to get snug with the laces. The soles are SO hard and unforgivng! I didn't even wear them for an hour and most of the time I was driving, so I wasn't standing in them and my feet were killing me just sitting in them! It's a shame because they are really cute, but they definitely have to go back.
