Rated 1 out of 5 by AJay99 Painful penny loafer
Great looking shoe and the price is right, but the leather is too stiff and uncomfortable. If you're looking for comfort, pay for a more expensive shoe.

My penny loafers arrived in a timely fashion, and they are a perfect fit. Excellent craftsmanship and looks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WahooFan2011 Durable Dress Shoe
I bought these around 6 months ago and they have held up much better than my similar dress shoes that cost almost double. I walk/metro to work every day and while the soles are showing signs of wear (as is to be expected), the uppers look great! I would highly recommend to anyone who puts a lot of miles on their dress shoes.
My only complaint is that they don't make these in a brown/light brown option. If they did I wouldn't shop anywhere else for dress shoes! Make it happen LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oldflyer85 Leather soled loafers
I'm 85 and have tripped and fallen many times over the last few years because of loss of leg muscle tone and strength. I finally figured out what was causing my tripping was that present day men's shoes were made with rubber soles because this is the cheapest construction in Asia where they are made. As you get older you have a tendency to shuffle when walking due to the loss of leg strength. I had all my shoes resoled to leather which slides on slippery surfaces like tile or marble . The rubber acts like a brake. When I saw the Bean loafers advertised with leather soles I had to have them, try to buy leather soled shoes. You cannot find leather soled shoes in all of Tucson where I live. I haven't tripped since switching to leather.

The loafer is excellent - typical of the hig quality standards of LL Bean.
My issue with the shoes is that they don't come in my size. I wore a size 12 for years, but now that I'm getting older, the 12 size is too small. At one time LL Bean offered a size 12 1/2 in several shoe types from New Balance walking shoes to the very comfortable Rockport walking shoe.
All of those offering have been discontinued. I ordered a penny loafer in size 13 regular (D. I'm swimming in them. I have to wear a pair of heavy socks just to keep them from slipping off when I walk.
I wish LL Bean would reinstate the 12 1/2 size once more.

Good looking shoe. Price was right. Size was right but heel on right foot slipped. Return process was easy and I appreciated the fact I received notice they had received my return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bean4kids Great so far
Can't speak to longevity, but these look great and comfortable after a day or two of breaking in. They did require some break-in time. The cordovan color is really nice, and less purple-y than some other shoes in this category. It looks great with gray dress pants/suit, even with almost-black pants. Will probably get the black pair as well, as long as these hold up.

Good looking shoe. Have to wear it several times to get it to fit your foot properly. Very loose at first. Stick with it.
