second pair of loafers. they take a little time to break in but are worth the wait I thought they run a hair small. I usually take 111/2 but found a 12 fit perfectly. No complaints worth the money

Rated 1 out of 5 by SudaNim Way too tight/narrow for a "EE"
I do not know what the problem is, but this 7EE is way too tight to be a true "EE". All my other L.L. Bean shoes are 7EE and they fit perfectly.
I sent mine back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Loco penny loafers rubber soles
I had been looking for this type shoe for 6 weeks when I found it on line. I have been wearing them around the house for a couple of weeks. They are too shallow for use of my required orthotics. I just wish I could wear them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yorel Just my size
Men's shoe size seven and one half EE is hard to find. LL Bean has them, they fit perfectly and the price was fair. They are exactly like the picture.
My friend said they were "good lookin' shoes".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Corbett Fits after worn
When I first tried the penny loafers, they seemed way too small, but recalling a review read earlier, I decided to keep them on for a few hours, and see it the hand stitching did allow sufficient expansion. Fortunately, it did, and I have enjoyed wearing them since. Even today when first slipped on, they seem tight, but after a few minutes the fit seems perfect and I forget that I am wearing them. Also have received various favorable comments about their appearance. There is a slight tendency for the non-slip tread to grab on the carpet if I allow my toe to drag, a tendency I have noticed in other shoes as well. All in all, well satisfied.

Good insole padding, but noting there is a break-in period for these shoes for the comfort needed. Choose the Cordovan color for its versatility as it goes with brown, blue or black pants. Like the rubber sole for its quiet and non slip surface.

Rated 3 out of 5 by scriverdog comfortable classic loafer wears much too quickly
this shoe is a little stiff out of the box but breaks in nicely. they run true to size. my biggest disappointment is the soft material used for heel and sole wears much too quickly, reducing the overall value. with a once/week wear the heels only lasted a year and yet the uppers still look great. the heal and sole is a molded rubber material with no apparent way to be replaced making this shoe a throwaway .So while the upper is great the heel and sole material is disappointing and not up to Bean quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by sweetj34 Look nice, better break them in
It has been quite some time since I purchased a nicer pair of shoes. These loafer look great and I suspect they will break in over time. Until then, wear two pairs of sock and have some bandages ready for your Achilles. They are rather brutal to start!

Rated 3 out of 5 by scvdeputy wrong sizing
The shoe appears to be well constructed and felt comfortable to stand in. However when I walked, the shoe would come off my heels as if I were wearing flip flops. I ordered a 10 1/2 wide. Same size as the leather mocs I purchased from LLBean. The mocs fit perfectly. The penny loafers felt as though the length was too long by probably a half inch or more. I pushed my foot back into the heel but after a few steps my foot was forward into the shoe for comfort there but then would come off the heel again. It just seems they are sized wrong. I had thought of going down one size in shoe but then it would need to probably be EXTRA wide which they don't carry. As mentioned the overall quality of the shoe looked and appeared great till I attempted to walk in them. Sent back to get a completely different style shoe after speaking with customer service about the sizing issue.
