This is a great shoe. It reminds me of my penny loafers I had when I was a little girl. It is so much better than the Bass brand of penny loafers. I even got a half-size smaller and it fits so much better. Thanks to Zappos, returns are hassle free!

It wasn't the quality I expected. It had an awkward rounded top to the toe which I didn't notice in the display images and one shoe had leather stains.

Love them! True to size and classic good looks that I was looking for! Originally ordered Bass version and they were very narrow and I didn't care for the leather either. These were the replacement item and I am glad I tried them. The moment I put them on I knew I had a winner. Can't beat the style of a classic "penny" loafer with jeans and a sweater...They also have a nice sole and heel. I expect to get a long life out of them.

I love penny loafers - I first ordered the Eastland II in size [5.5]. A size smaller than I usually wear. I was going by the reviews saying they ran a size larger. I had to exchange them for my usual size 6. They fit perfect. I was very pleased with the fast delivery also.

It's a Classic Alright - I too found this shoe to run about 1/2 size large; I had to return my normal 8.5 for size 8. This is a well-made, great leather shoe. I have worn some type of penny loafer just about all my life. It's a great shoe with dress pants or with jeans or skits. It's a classic and this one from Eastland is no exception.

A Classic All the Way!! Wow!! I ordered these shoes late Saturday and they arrived on Tuesday. Very classic looks and they fit my foot like a glove. I can hardly tell that I have them on. A little bit more arch support would have been nice, but as one with long, skinny, hard to fit feet, they are just great!! I love them!! Not only do they feel great, they look great!!!

I have been wearing penny loafers since the 1960s. After trying 3 or 4 other Zappos styles, this style and fit were perfect. They look right, feel right, and, to me, just right!

I bought these for my mother to give her granddaughter for Christmas. Usually when she opens something, she says they love them and the next day my sister has to call to get the receipt for the return. Not this year! The girl wouldn't take them off. This was exactly what she wanted!

I bought these shoes out of desperation - one of my favorite navy blue loafers had a hole in the sole and our local shoe repair man said he couldn't repair it. Then I discovered that no one makes navy blue loafers any more! So I opted for this color, and it works just fine with navy blue pants. Plus, the style is great -- pure classic -- and the shoes are comfortable.

These just arrived today, and fit comfortably right out of the box. I'm very pleased, and grateful to Eastland for offering many of their shoes in a wide width. I take an 8W, and this shoe fit just right with medium weight socks. The tan leather is a nice, rustic looking color and finish, but without being already scuffed up like some "distressed" leathers (that look doesn't appeal to me). It looks like its already been broken in, and loved a bit. Structured, yet very casual. Also, the stitching isn't as high contrast as it looks in the online photo. I was concerned about it being too light, but it is much better in person. The leather feels substantial, without being overly stiff. Sure, like most leather items, these could use a bit of breaking in, but not much - they're already comfortable, and my sense is they'll just get better. I don't plan on using these shoes for dressier occasions, but if I'd planned on wearing them with trouser socks (which are thin) I might consider getting 1/2 size down. I'm thinking about doing just that in the black color, for work. Also, I'm a bit self-conscious of having wider feet, and far too many styles just accentuate the size and width, and look like what my Grandma would call "Clod-Hoppers". I'm often concerned about that when getting a style of shoe which is traditionally a "man's shoe", like penny loafers. These shoes are not like that, and if anything, they make my feet look smaller and more feminine. Again, I'm really pleased with these.

Zappos stuck with me through several returns. But these loafers and another pair of moccasins turned out to be just what I needed. It's so great to get shoes in wide (but not too wide) so I can wear them without having to stretch them and "break them in." I've always been into the "preppie" look for casual dress and love my new shoes!!!! Great with or without socks.

I have an old pair of loafers that I wanted to replace. These fit the bill! I love the color (burgundy). They're a little more formal than what I have so I can wear them with more things. The fit was good and this is an all around nice shoe.

I've worn out two pair of these in the past and was starting to think I might not find another. They are the perfect shoe to wear with shorts, jeans, and skirts. The fit is a bit snug in the beginning but after a bit they stretch and mold to your foot. Thank goodness I found another pair.

Exactly what I wanted - The Eastland loafer looked and fit just as I hoped. Great classic look with slip on comfort. I wore them the first day and many days since with no "breaking in" discomfort. I have worn the same size (9C) for many years, but have found variations in widths to be a problem, but not here.

This was a gift and my daughter loves them - My daughter asked for this type of shoe for her birthday. I found them quickly on your website and ordered them the same day. She was so excited to see them when she opened the box. She was afraid I wouldn't be able to find the exact ones she wanted. THANKS for your help.
