I, like the other reviewers, had fit issues with this shoe. I own several pairs of Franco Sarto shoes, all 9.5, and they all fit me perfectly. With this loafer however, the fit seemed a smidge too short. The toe box pressed down on my big toe just enough to be bothersome, but not enough to go up a size. I know the size 10 would be too wide. And I fear the 9.5 won't ever "break in" enough to be comfortable. So back they go. Considering trying the Cole Haan Pinch Campus.

This shoe looks like it would be a trendy, designer loafer but sadly when I received the shoes they were lack luster and the sole wasn't thick and wooden as expected. They would be great for someone much older perhaps who wasn't using them with anticipation of looking very stylish. Reminded me of what a grandmother would wear on a nice occasion rather than a trendy glossy city loafer. I love Zappos though and will be exchanging for something else!

I loved this shoe but unfortunately could not find a size that fit. I normally wear a 9.5M in this brand but both that size and the 10 did not fit. A navy blue loafer in patent leather is so hard to find so I am so disappointed.

I love these shoes! They are comfortable and an updated chic look for loafers. I will wear them a lot. They are just a little stiff and need a little bit of breaking in, but I think they will be great.

These are really nice looking shoes but the size 8 was very tight without a ped. I would suggest ordering a half size larger.
