I’m generally between a 12 and 13 in sneakers, but I have wide feet. Size 13 Vans Eras are my go-to shoes. I’d read these run a half to full size big, so I figured a 12 wide would be perfect. Though I’m very satisfied with my pair, if (when!) I buy these again, I’ll probably go with a 11.5 wide. Not sure if the width of my feet led to the sizing confusion, but figured I’d share...

The shoes seem to be well made, but the right shoe doesn't fit properly. There's a knot or raised place just under the great toe on my right foot that's uncomfortable. I'm returning the shoes unused.

These shoes are all that I expected. I ordered a larger size at first and had to send them back. No problems with that, of course! Now I wear them to teach in every day and I am comfortable and look great.

These are great shoes at a great price. Zappos is the best online company that I've ever used. It has been easy, nice, and unbelievably convenient and fair. I love Zappos!

The shoe is great especially for a wide foot. I have a hard time finding a wide shoe so this was a welcome find. I probably could have gotten a size smaller in width but no complaints.

Nice shoe/excellent customer service! I have a very difficult time finding any shoes that are wide enough, let alone dress shoes, so was glad to find these. They did seem to be about one size too long however. Zappos customer service is wonderful! They cheerfully exchanged the size 11 EEEEEE for 10 1/2, and then (since 10 1/2 was still too long) exchanged those for 10s… all with free next-day shipping. Everyone's customer service should be this efficient and accommodating!

I just received the Larson loafer in 4 working days as promised. I loved the shoe but it was too tight. I called in to Zappos and had a great experience in making the change for a wider shoe with no difficulty. The shoe is great and I can\'t say enough about the efficiency of Zappos. Thanks so much I\'ll be back!!

Bass "Larson" Weejun - Growing up I had many a pair of Bass Weejuns, and I always was satisfied with them, either as a casual or a dress shoe. Apparently nothing has changed.

Brands I'd also recommend: Variations on the classic penny loafer.

Great service - I've always found it difficult to find this shoe in my size (very wide) when trying to buy from shoe stores. The Zappos' process was simple, quick, and very friendly. Kept me updated through the entire process. I'll definitely be buying my shoes from Zappos from now on.

This is a quality shoe. It is well made. It feels and looks like "quality." I had not purchased a loafer shoe in years so I am having to get accustomed to a "looser" fitting shoe (now that it has become broken in) than the oxfords type shoes I have been wearing. In the future I might be tempted to purchase a size smaller to compensate for the "broken-in, looser fit" I am presently experiencing though I'm confident the shoe will form better to my feet once they become fully broken-in. The shoe does feel a size larger since being broken-in.

Great shoe! This shoe was comfortable right from the start - no break-in time needed. I ordered a 10D, my regular size and it fit perfectly. It's a classy looking shoe in addition to being comfortable. And Zappos service was incredible - the shoes were on my doorstep in 22 hours!!! WOW - that's the best delivery time, ever. Thanks, Zappos!

A Long Time Favorite - These shoes are very comfortable and do not require a break in period. They are appropriate for a wide range of occasions because they are so traditional in appearance. I've had several pair over the years and size and the product has been consistent. The price is very appealing. A slightly less glossy finish would be my only recommendation for improvement.

Great shoes - Many thanks to Zappos!!! This is my first time using their service and they are truly amazing!!! I like my new Bass Larson shoes. The color is what I was looking for as well as the fitting. The shoe is a bit sturdy, but I am sure it will be better in a few days. Zappos team thank you again!!

An old friend - My husband has been wearing Bass Weejuns for decades. He has finally worn out one pair and was excited to learn that they are still being produced. We couldn't find his size in the local shoe store, so I went online to Zappos. Not only was the size and color in stock, but I ordered the shoe on a Saturday evening and received it on Monday. Easy, easy and great service!

Bass Larson - Although the width was perfect, the length did not feel true to size, but felt larger. Overall very nice looking shoe. In order to compensate for the sizing I inserted some insoles.

Bass Larson is wonderful shoe - I ordered these shoes for my husband who has been a big fan of Bass shoes since the original Weejuns came out when he was in high school. Bass are the only shoes he will wear. If Bass decides to go out of business, I hope they will let me know first so I can stock up for the next 30 yrs. or my husband’s feet will go naked! The fit and quality of Bass is always superb and they last for many, many years. As for Zappos, you people are amazing! I just discovered you a day before I ordered these shoes and will use you always from now on. I ordered these shoes and 2 other pairs early one evening and they arrived by 2PM the next day. I was shocked! I tell everyone about you! Thanks. Your slogan is so appropriate for you (We are a service company who happens to sell things.) Great!

Brands I'd also recommend: Don't know. My husband only wears Bass except for Ariat or Georgia Boots which he wears to work on our horse farm.

Very Comfortable Shoe!! I have worn this brand and style since the early 60's. Somewhat difficult to find the Bass brand, but no problem at Zappos. Weejuns was the loafer to wear and still is my book. I was happy to find them at Zappos, but not surprised.

Worth the penny and more - Shoes are great. They are slightly larger than the size. But, not that bad. Certainly will buy again.

Just what we were looking for! My husband had tried various styles and brands, but he knew he wanted the "penny loafer." We have ordered from other companies and even had a department store special order a pair, but none fit 'just right' except the Bass. He is very pleased with them. I was extremely pleased with the fast delivery time and the great return policy (even though we did not have to us it). The quality matched that of Rockport, Cole Haan, & Johnston/Murphy.

Over the years I've had many of the Dansko Professional clogs, and they've always been comfortable and well-made. Their platform is a little high (for some of my slacks) and their look is very traditional. Because of that platform, the professionals are not good in uneven terrain. I was in search of an outdoor shoe with very little heel, like Merrel or Keen, but could not find anything in black leather. I ordered these despite the fairly high price. When they came, I was VERY pleased with the look, fit and comfort. Size-wise, they are EXACTLY like my Dansko Professionals. They are an athletic looking shoe without being too casual--they just look sharp. And I wore them walking for hours right out of the box. They are keepers; I love them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrel, Keen

Bass Larson-Weejuns - I have worn loafers for work and casual evenings for years. I was able to "break-in" these shoes within a few hours. I find them to be comfortable and have received several comments from people who say they are an attractive shoe.

The shoes seem to be well made, but the right shoe doesn't fit properly. There's a knot or raised place just under the great toe on my right foot that's uncomfortable. I'm returning the shoes unused.
