I have owned several pairs of these and no longer recommend them. While the style is decent and they are very comfortable, they do not hold up. The leather is very thin and things like driving wear it down quickly. My last pair lasted three months before looking chewed up. Other reviews have noted this and they are right. Just pulled my last new pair out and it's amazing how mad the old ones wore.

These shoes look really good on. They were comfortable right out of the box, and I thought "right-on"! Old-school loafer look without having to break them in. Unfortunately, they did not wear as well as I remember my old ones lasting. I have barely had these shows two months, and honestly, I have to throw them away and buy something else. Within a couple weeks the rubber on the heel was squashing over sideways and the toes were all chewed up like I was scuffing my feet long in gravel. I also did not like how the penny I put in the slot in the toe kept falling out. Old-school loafers had an actual slot, and I remember it being almost impossible to even get the penny in there, much less lose it. I was losing pennies left and right out of these things. Overall, not a good buy because they just do not last.

This is the perfect shoe for my current situation: it looks nice, has a flexible sole and a low heel, and it will be no great loss if it gets ruined. If you're looking for some great pennies, invest a few hundred dollars in a pair that will outlast your career. If you need something comfy and expendable but nice looking, here's your shoe!

I'd also recommend: Cole Haan, Bostonian, Bass

The Ainsworth Penny has a classic look and goes with anything. Right out of the box these shoes were very comfortable. I have worn them almost every day for a month and they still look new. The rubber outsole is comfortable and shows no sign of wear. I am very pleased and have purchased other J&M Ainsworth styles. I hope J&M will continue this style for a very long time. I highly recommend this shoe. As always the Zappos service is the best.

I'd also recommend: Any of the J&M Ainsworth styles.
