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.

I work in sales and have worn loafers for 28 years. I used to be able to buy these locally u til about five years ago. I tried some other brands but was never as satisfied. When I found them on Zappos, I was cautiously optimistic but realized that they might not be the same quality that I was used to. I am happy to say that they are just like I remembered and expect these to last me a long time.

Needs some breaking in, but immediately as I slipped my foot in, I knew that this was the penny loafer I had been searching for (for years.) They will break-in, and I will wear them to the ground, and order some more pairs in brown or cognac or whatever.

This is a beautiful shoe, but did not fit me. Also, it is very stiff. I am returning it for a similar style in a different brand.

I am extremely unhappy with this purchase/shoe. The shoe is terrible and extremely uncomfortable. The leather is super stiff and I developed sores on the back of my heel from this shoe after walking in them for half a day (I went home and grabbed my Sperrys at lunch). Also, the bottom of the show has NO GRIP at all. If you are walking on a tile, wood, or any other smooth surface, walk very carefully because these shoes have the opposite of "grip", instead the soles provide a very slippery walking experience. I went from a pair of Sperry penny loafers that I loved but they got to old and worn out and I decided to try Sebago after reading good reviews online, BIG MISTAKE. This cost down the drain.

I bought these shoes for my husband. He is very hard on shoes, and wears a 12 D, so it's difficult to get a good fit. He is really happy with these shoes - took a couple of days to break in, but he wears them daily and said they're comfortable. We were not familiar with the brand, but the quality seems very good for that price point. I would definitely buy this brand again.

Nice looking shoe. Back a few years ago I was wearing this shoe and promised myself I would not get another pair when I learned they took their manufacturing off shore. I did give them another try last week, but the shoes were too narrow. Over many years of wearing this style shoe, I always wear the same size, but these just didn't fit. They were actually painful across the bridge of the foot. I had to return them and will go back to another maker. Zappos is always a pleasure to work with. I have not had to go to the mall for a pair of shoes in years.

Great shoes - been wearing Sebagos for 25 years. Not sure if they changed the design but had to go to E width versus D. Zappos return process was easy breezy

These hoes are very comfortable and very stylish. I wear them everyday for work. And Zappos, like always, I was very satisfied with your fast service. It is like buying at the store because I really did not have to wait that long for the shoes after I bought them, and it was even better because there are more types, and brands, all in one place. Thanks again, Zappos! Keep it up!

Great shoe, true size. Have been wearing this shoe for years...the shoe is tight when you first wear it...use shoe horn and give it a few weeks. I like it best with vibram rubber sole. Very comfortable and not as slick as the leather sole.

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.

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.
