Rated 5 out of 5 by Piratepete2014 Comfortable shoe, will be using it.
I wear shoes like this everyday. It is comfortable and does however give a heel click every step I make. I have worn a pair of these in high school, which it was in decent condition (it was my deceased uncles who didn't wear these often)
After I found out that the old show had a hole (at the time, I didn't know if it needed to resole) and the shoe was a bit loose. So, I went ahead and bought a new pair and it looks great; I highly recommend this shoe. It is comfortable, and lasts long. The old shoe I wore lasted approx. over 10 years.
Definitely will purchase another one soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EAZ28 Solid dress show
I have worn the same pair of loafers for a number of years and my wife told me it was finally time for a new pair. However, it was hard to find ones I liked with a leather sole for a reasonable price.
The LL Bean loafers run about 1 full size small (normally wear a 12 and got an 11). I was told that the more they're worn the more they'll stretch and conform to my feet. However, until this happens they are a bit tight. But had I purchased the 12 they would eventually stretch and probably feel like they're falling off.
So far, so good. Look forward to having/wearing these for years to come.

The styling and looks of these loafer are the quality that I was looking for. You can't beat the feel of real leather and you can see the craftsmanship in the shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NEForestHills Great leather soled shoes
I was looking for leather-soled shoes for dancing that would be quit livable too. These are great: comfortable, well made, look great and are breaking in nicely.
But the sizing is seriously different from all my other shoes. These run very large: I'm happily wearing size 8.5 size wide, while all my other shoes are 9.5 or 10. Bean's exchange was helpful in getting me the right size, though I was told 3 different numbers for the difference in length between sizes. Trial and error ultimately worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigaLuca Excellent loafers
I just needed to get the right size, which is not easy when you have a big foot an cannot try the shoe on personally. Got it at the third try. The process of returning the merchandise is flawless

Rated 5 out of 5 by Malaca Comfortable from the start
These are the first shoes I have had that were comfortable from the beginning. Requirement? Patience because the leather squeaks as the shoes "relax". I did have to return the first pair because the sewing was loose on one shoe and a persistent clicking noise resulted. But as always, L.L.Bean made good on return/replacement and this pair is well constructed. I think you will like a great pair at a very reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FastMan80 A great loafer
A great loafer in fit and expected quality from LLB. A tad stiff to break in, so I'm still wearing socks until more limber. I've ordered boat shoes (and other items) for years from LLB for the best quality and service. I'm trying the penny loafer that can be resoled. I'm tired of discarding perfectly good boat shoes because the worn out soles cannot be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMDinMaryland Great shoes!
Getting wide shoes I can wear to work is either hard to find or very expensive. These fit great, last a good long time and look terrific. I bought the black and came back and bought the cordovan.
