Handsome shoe. They lasted me roughly a year wearing them nearly everyday. I had the 'sand' color, but it's eventually turned darker - it actually looks better now that the shoes are nearly worn out. Not a ton of support, not super comfortable - but they're do-able. True to size. Put up with a lot of abuse.

Sebago quality has declined. Inconsistent size, faulty or crooked stitching and thin leather compared to same shoe purchased 6 years ago. Sadly, I will no longer purchase Sebago products.

Have to give these a poor review since the leather actually ripped away from the sole. Not even able to repair them (if I'd wanted to). I won't be purchasing another pair from Sebago.

I have owned and have worn out a pair of this exact same shoe on the inside by re-soling them 3 or 4 times. I found this new pair in the same size a little long for me and the leather sole was not very flexible. I will re-order a pair with thinner leather soles.

If you are looking for a good quality, leather soled, brown loafer then look no further. I've worn these for the past month and am very pleased with the value of this shoe. I'm even considering ordering another pair in case they stop making them.

Love the look and feel of these shoes. They are a bit snug, which is a good thing because they stay on the heel nicely. I kept them at work to break in over a couple weeks as they were definitely stiff to begin with. Once broken in these are my favorite work shoes!

My first Zappos experience was pretty impressive. I had gone to the Sebago site for this shoe, and it was backordered until September! But Zappos had it in stock, and at a lot less than Sebago, the manufacturer! The shoe is great (my 4th identical pair) but Zappos is even greater!

Beautiful, classic shoe. Very well made. From now on all I'll buy are Sebagos. I normally wear a size 12, but they were too big - 11.5 was right. Next time I'll get wide, as they are a little snug. But the perfect penny-loafer.

I have been wearing the Sebago brand for nearly 30 years now. I have found them both comfortable and durable. They can easily be resoled and the uppers maintain a high quality appearance.

Very handsome, classic shoe. There was more heel than my husband wanted, but that's not a critique of the shoe itself. Overall, exudes quality! The brown however, is more reddish - I would have called it cordovan or burgundy.

Exactly what I hoped they'd be! Thought they were a little tight but not enough to return. Perfect in every other way.

These shoes are not lined with smooth leather. They are like cheaper shoes. I do not recommend them if you like smooth leather lined shoes.

Got these shoes and immediately had problems with the width - too narrow. But, as they were slip-ons, I decided to 'tough it out' and hoped they would break in. Unfortunately, after wearing out the soles (after only 8 months), they were more resistant than my feet and never really became comfortable. Will consider either a larger size or definitely a wider fit next time.

I thought these were going to be a sturdy, versatile loafer. However, my wife and I found them to be ugly right out of the box. They looked like plastic to me and were not comfortable. I returned them and went with a Frye loafer.

Beautiful, well-made shoes, that unfortunately are being returned. My husband was unable to slide his foot in because the band across the top was too tight.

These penny loafers have a very long tongue on the front compared to typical penny loafers like Cole Hann. They are not the type for wearing with no socks in summer. The look doesn't work however maybe for formal wear would be better. Plus size wise they run very big.

Great fit right out of the box. Compared with the another brand I bought at the same time they stand out as a much higher quality and much better fit. Worth the extra money to get a great shoe.

Awesome shoes. Very well made, great support, and good fit. I feel like I am wearing socks -- except that the socks are stiff. Be warned that the leather is a bit firm, but these shoes seem to be worth the break-in.

The shoes fit well, true to size, but they were not the handmade Sebagos I grew up with. The leather is not as soft, and, at least in this show, it is a bit too shiny than what I expected. Having said that, they are comfortable and I kept them. The great thing about Zappos is that I could have easily returned them without cost.

My daughter first informed me of Zappos. I seldom order any thing on the internet. My shoe size is 6 1/2 EEE and I needed a penny loafer. This combination is very difficult to locate. I had an appointment and I needed the shoes. My other penny loafers were eaten by my daughters dog. Not chewed, eaten. Zappos really did get me out of a fix. They had the shoe I needed in my size and shipped it out express for me.I had in two days. I could not have been happier with their service. They had what I needed and shipped when I needed it shipped. I will order all my future shoes from them. Thanks Zappos.

I absolutely love doing business with Zappos! As to the Sebago Classic shoe, it is well constructed, nicely finished, and fits like a glove. I have a very narrow foot and was surprised to find that this shoe fit me well. I ordered several other brands of the same style and none fit as nicely.
