I love the way these look. They are a beautiful shoe, but they make my feet bleed. After ordering and returning 2 other sizes (I'm a 10 but had to get 9.5) and wearing them as much as possible, I have still not broken them in. The leather is stiff and I have tried everything. I have resorted to carrying another pair of shoes with me to change into. I have normal sized feet, not too wide. I have started putting thick tape on the back of my heels while I wear them. If anyone can tell me how to break in these shoes, please tell me. I love them and don't want to give up.

This is a super cute shoe. But, for me, the advice to order a half-size smaller really didn't work out. The shoe is simply too small, but instead of just returning it (maybe because they were sold out of my regular size?) I tried wearing them, stretching them, all to no avail. They seriously hurt my feet and I have pretty much no hope of ever being able to make them fit. A fairly expensive disappointment, unfortunately.

These are beautiful shoe. The craftsmanship is impeccable. They do run about a half size large though...I don't think they run true to size. Am reordering a half size smaller.

These are shoes I wore many years ago when I was in high school. They fit good or comfortable after broke in. The only problem I found is they are slick on the soles.

Love these shoes! Been looking forever for a red flat that was just the right color, just the right fit. I was not really looking for a loafer but loved the candy apple red so much I figured I'd give them a try and I'm so glad I did! They are very slim - not a wide clunky loafer and the color is to die for. Bass recommended sizing down and half size which I did and they fit just right. Perhaps a little on the narrow side, so take that into consideration, but I have to say they do not pinch or rub my toes at all and sometimes loafers gape on the sides if they are too wide, which these do not.

Love the design of the shoe. And they are comfortable if you slip them on and never take a step. BUT if you move, you're in for pain. I tried for nearly 3 days to break the leather in, to no avail. These shoes actually made my feet bleed. Go for another shoe.

Classic penny loafer just can't be beat. They are just as sturdy and well made as they look. It took about a week of wearing them to break them in, but nothing painful or blistering. My daughter can wear them with thin socks or without and she looks adorable.
