Rated 5 out of 5 by StatsRat Comfortable and Consistent
This is my 4th pair of the bison loafers in about 8 years. Every pair has been sized correctly and comfortable. They are remarkably durable. I just retired from teaching high school math. In that field, I was on my feet all the time and on the go, teaching and taking care of my kids. These shoes were a favorite for that. They looked appropriate with my school attire, stood up to the wear and tear, and kept my feet from getting sore and tired.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Leatherfoote Still good all in all
I was very pleased with my loafers, good fit and finish (as they say). However, the heels wore down to an unacceptable level in about four months. Fortunately the local show maker, a man of some experience, will be able to replace the heel with a better one, as well as the soles, when the time comes. LL Bean reimbursed me for the repairs, and listened to my suggestion for using an improved material for the heels and soles. I really like the shoes and would still recommend them. Thank you LL Bean.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BenjisDaddy Need More Durable Heels
These would be great shoes except the heels are very nondurable and not replaceable at shoe repair shops. I've had 3 pair now but am going to switch brands. I end up with a pair of shoes, perfectly broken in, with many years of wear left in the uppers but worn out heels that cannot be replaced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by computerlawman Soles Wear Out Too Soon
These are great shoes, but the soles are too soft and wear too soon. The heals on mine have worn to the point where the shoes aren't supportive or comfortable anymore. The uppers are perfectly good, though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SirMrG Great casual shoe
Be sure to order 1/2 size smaller. I read the other reviews and they were correct. I followed their recommendation for a good fit.
These are great casual shoes, for jeans, shorts, etc. Very comfortable and good looking. I didn't like them with dress pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJCP Very nice penny loafer; quality materials
I like these loafers and have received nice compliments on their appearance. They are still being broken in and I debated over getting wide width ( I purchase the medium width) as most reviews said they stretch after breaking. They feel slightly tight now but I think they will be just right with a few more wearrings. I'm happy with my purchase. Quality footwear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RinCT Really love these shoes
These shoes are really comfortable and look great. For me Bean shoes run a 1/2 size larger than other brands As always the ordering and delivery process was great

Rated 4 out of 5 by Charlie0414 Allagash Bison Handsewn - Penny Loafers
The construction is fine, including the color which is as shown in the catalogue. The length seems to be fine but the width is narrower than the EE Wide as advertised. They don't seem to fit and I have them on a shoe stretcher with hopes that I'll be able to wear them after about a week or two of working on them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Texashombre Don't fit
I wear size 9 shoes. However, since I was ordering an EE width, I ordered size 81/2 the first time. To my surprise, they were too big. So, I returned them and ordered size 8, which I received. I wore them for the first time today and these are too tight and still too long! I hope I can still return them.
I ordered a second pair of shoes the first time, but I returned them because the fit wasn't right.
