Featuring a men's swing toe last, rubber soles, and 2" leather wrapped heels, The Beezie is both tough and feminine, making it a casual slip-on loafer for ladies that will allow you to weather the elements effortlessly while still looking cute. With smooth, shiny Bottero leathers and a perforated kilty, The Beezie loafers are the fusion of heritage and rustic. Drawn as an equestrian-inspired prep school loafer, The Beezie is named after our favourite show jumper with a winning drive we can all relate to. A thankful person is a happy person.

A halfsize with a narrow foot, going down to the full size works great. For a wider halfsize, going up to the full size will do the trick.

I am a loafer gal. No spiky heels. No dainty flats. I tried these on in the Seattle store when they first came out, but had my heart set on a different shoe. I've had my eye on them ever since and am so glad to get a pair (on sale!) before they ran out. Yes, snug. Just an excuse to buy thinner socks.

I agree with other reviews that the shoes are narrow when first received, but not to any extreme degree and I expect the leather to stretch at my widest part (toe beds) with use. I am normally a 37/6.5 and ordered a 7, but the length is to size. I'm keeping the shoes because they will work with socks.
They are high-quality shoes. The soles are really comfortable and the heels are not high at all. However, the stitching on the front at the toes is uneven.

I'm normally between an 8.5 and a 9 and based on the comments, I sized up to a 10 in the green. They fit like a 9.5, so they run at least a half size small. But I have no issues with the shoe being too tight or too narrow and if I wore socks, it'll be perfect. They are super comfortable and feel good on my feet. I'm klutzy and don't balance well on heels but these are very easy to walk in. The shoe is gorgeous and will be great for wearing to work. A great deal on the sale too.

English loafer meets cowboy
I just had to buy these shoes once they went on sale. They are a mix between a loafer and a cowboy shoe - super awesome. Fluevog accidentally sent me the brown instead of the black and I'm tempted to keep this colour because they are super cute! Either way I don't think you can go wrong. Usually I'm a 7.5 fluevog, but I ordered 8 on this and I'm glad I did. Even these are a touch narrow but I think they'll stretch to be just right.

I didn't think the Beezie was for me, especially with the comments about the narrow sizing (wide foot and higher arches). I was delighted with the fit when I went up to a 9 from a typical Vog mini 8. A little leather softening on the back of the heel did the trick. Love the deep green and funky tassles. Great price too - don't pass them up.

My Favourite Shoes!
I had my eye on these at the Calgary store and could not resist when they went on sale. I have them in green! They definitely do run small ~ my other Vogs are 7's and 7 1/2's but had to go with an 8 and even that was snug to begin with. They are also very, very narrow but my husband spotted a nifty spot shoe stretcher at Lee Valley and these are now my most comfortable shoes. Just use it gently to ease any tight spots and you can walk forever in these beauties!

Thanks to Nina at the Portland store for her help. I'm a narrow 6.5, but I had to go to 7. At the store I needed an insole, but I'm finding at home I can get along without it, even though now the tight bar is loosening up with wear. Beezie is a very comfortable every day shoe, good with jeans or skirts, and the perfect heel height for working in them all day. I've ordered some argyll socks from Portland's Sock Dreams. They'll be the perfect compliment!

Gorgeous!! Got them in the brown and they are fantastic. They fit pretty true to size for me. My Vanni's are an 8 and so are my Adrianna boots although my other Vogs are 7.5 (and normally I'm an 8 in other shoe brands). I don't have a narrow foot so I'm confused by the other comments. Fabulous shoes, so well made. I love you John Fluevog!!

I got these in green in my usual Fluevog size 10. These do run a little small, but I decided to keep them. They're more comfortable now after I've worn them a few times, and fit just fine with thin socks. Super cute - I've gotten lots of compliments on them. So, you may want to size 1/2 size up, or just get them in your usual size and wear them a bit/get them stretched.

My Adriana Lunas fit perfectly in a size 11, so I felt confident in ordering the Adriana Beezie in the same size, but they feel exactly a half a size smaller. Why, Fluevog? Why can't a shoe in the same family be expected to fit in the same wonderful way? Sending them back and looking for something else, since they don't make an 11 1/2 or 12. Otherwise, a nice solid shoe, sad to see it go.
