Rated 5 out of 5 by fjc1 Typical LL Bean product
I bought 2 pair, one cordovan and one black. Both pairs fit perfectly after bending the shoe and heal a few times. Have worn both pair on long days and they were comfortable. Typical Bean products. Beautiful finish, fair price and best guarantee in the business. Shipping was also very fast.even though one pair was out of stock. Nobody does it better than LL Bean!

Very good looking classic loafers. No cheap plastic look with these shoes. Based on other reviews I ordered 1/2 size down. This gave me an excellent fit. They will be tight across fore foot as with any loafer when new. I used a touch of shoe stretch and wore heavy sox 1 time for initial break-in. They then continued to adjust to my feet for a custom fit. Very comfortable

Rated 5 out of 5 by HGS617 Excellent shoe and value
This shoe has become my go-to shoe for work. It's an incredibly comfortable, well-constructed shoe that rivals shoes priced twice as much. I purchased the cordovan color and they really are a handsome shoe in the classic penny loafer style. Resolability is a plus, but at this price point, might be worth just picking up a new pair when the time comes. I highly recommend these shoes for someone who wants to add some variety to their dress shoe collection without breaking the bank.
I measure 10D on a brannock, but I have a high arch and wider-than-average (but not "wide") feet so my shoes range from 9.5E to 11 depending on make. 10D was too small for me so I exchanged for a 10.5D which has come to fit me perfectly. I think if you are between sizes, it would be wise size up since these are narrow and will stretch. LL Bean's incredible customer service and return policy made this purchase 100% worthwhile for me.

The men's penny loafers in black are comfortable and classic. Very well constructed with all leather materials which is handy for future shoe repairs. Lots of great comments from people on how great they look.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoxFanCT Classic Penny Loafer
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.
