I have a wide foot so can be difficult to find a comfortably fitting shoe without ending up with too much length. These fit great out of the box and continue to be extremely comfortable. Best shoe I have had in a long time.

Quality shoe that looks great with any long pant. Unfortunately, the heel of my foot slips from the penny loafer with each step. Sadly, they had to be returned in favor of the tie version.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RWSD Give them some time
Rather uncomfortable, straight out of the box. I experimented with several orthotic inserts and found one that made the shoes much more comfortable - that and breaking them in over several days. They look nice; I've received several compliments on that. Appear to be sturdily constructed as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JohnnyBaseball Good shoes, but size 9 1/2 was more like a 10.
Well made shoes. Color and stitching are as depicted in the pictures. Soles appear to be sturdy enough to last. I ordered 9 1/2 M, but the pair I received were at least a 10. Rather than return/replace them, I bought inner soles, which tightened up the fitment. I'll wear these as is, and then consider purchasing size 9 on my next pair (assuming I have a good experience with this pair). Shipping was prompt.
In all other respects this was a good purchasing experience. I'd have given these shoes a 5 star rating (based on initial perception) except for the size issue noted above.

Just received my shoes and tried them on...aaahhhh! Great fit and comfortable foot bed in this shoe. The contrast of the two tone isn't as exaggerated as it is in the photo, but the leather is soft,supple, and I can't wait to get them broken in. And, yes, L.L. Bean the shoe horn is a nice touch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ValueBasedShopper Very good looking, comfortable loafer
Very comfortable good looking shoes. Shoes seem to run 1/2 size large; I returned the first size10 1/2 (my normal size) for size 10. It took less than a day to break in the shoes. Love them! LLB great customer service reduced the time for the proper sized pair to less than 3 days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AstroBoater Best shoe, ever.
Have resoled these shoes twice. Never polished them. Look like new. Fit very much like new. Have held their shape. Wear them mostly every day. Never had a better casual shoe. Have bought two more as spares as I am afraid LLB will stop carrying them.

Best shoes I've ever had. They last about two years, and I've gone through four pairs. Soles are a softer rubber waffle stomper grid. As they age, it might be inappropriate to wear them on icy surfaces, but they are broken in when you buy them, and just keep looking and feeling better.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mike950 Men's Allagash Bison Penny Loafers
A good looking shoe, and well made except I found the softer soles wore quickly. Had to wear thick socks after a month or so because shoe started to feel very loose and felt like I was walking out of them. They seemed wider than the D width I normally wear. I would wear them inside for a while if you decide you need to return for a different size.
