I wasnt crazy about the shade of blue. Online it looked a little brighter. In person they are a bit duskier than I had personally desired. I have been looking for a light blue loafer for awhile, sadly this wasnt quite right for me, but if you like more of a cornflower to your blue hue as opposed to a Robin's egg or sky blue as I prefer this is a nice shade for you. As far as fit, im a 7.5 in lorraine all day long. This shoe was a bit wider on me. Now i have a narrow foot aside from bunions so that might just be me. I returned it as the color and fit werent great for me.
