Fine shoe-Too Large - I have worn a size 7 narrow all of my adult life and this 7N did not fit at all. The return was extremely easy and cost nothing!! The 6.5N is also a little large. Otherwise a nice shoe for the price.

DIsappointed Weejun fan - I'm happy I finally managed to find a Weejun style in a wider width. But I'm disappointed in the overall quality of this shoe. My previous Weejuns had leather soles, and lasted forever (I had them reheeled twice in 10 years - the tops were nearly unscuffed in all that time. My foot grew longer and wider, otherwise I would probably still be wearing them) These have man-made soles, and they squeak when I walk. On the plus side, the are affordable. I paid less for these than the all leather ones I bought ~17 years ago. I hope they last at least half as long as "the good old days"

Great Shoe - Loving the Casell. Only minor problem is the rubber sole seems to bend easily and can get caught on things. Prefer leather or harder sole but the shoe is awesome. Like slippers to wear. Soft and comy. True to fit.

Great shoe...be careful with width, though - Nice pair of shoes, although they felt really tight on the width...I am going to send the ones I originally ordered in a medium width for wides. Very stylish and lovely to look at...they bring back a lot of memories. I had a pair of black ones back in the 80's during the Michael Jackson "Thriller" days LOL although I bought the brown ones this time. They sure bring back a lot of good memories of that fun time in my life!!!

Nice shoe - Very nice shoe. Good looking and comfortable, however I have a pudgy foot and it feels a little narrower than other Bass shoes I've purchased.

A well constructed and nice looking shoe. Works well with business clothing as well as casual clothing. It does run wide and long. Once I put pads in the toes and put on two pairs of socks it fit nicely. If I would of had more time I would of returned it and tryed a smaller size--I needed them for a business trip.

Not the Greatest Shoe I've ever Owned - Comfortable shoe, but a little clunky. Not as comfortable as I had anticipated. Not a true loafer.

My 12-year-old daughter has outgrown girls' sizes, and is now a size 8.5 women's. These shoes just don't seem to fit her feet as the toe box is narrower than kids' shoes. 8.5M felt short, tight and uncomfortable (she didn't even want them on her feet, and I'm not happy about any shoes that squeeze her growing toes inwards) and 8.5W fell off her feet as she walked. I had a new pair of Wayfarers size 8W that were loose on her feet, but after some maneuvering with insoles, seem to be okay for now. Wish the Casell had slightly wider toe boxes. Not sure how much they would stretch out after some wear, but I'm not willing to take the chance of rubbing and blistering on her growing feet in the meantime.

I so wanted these shoes to work for me! But alas, they did not. I found the fit to be a bit odd. The toe box is cut very low so that I could actually see the outline of my big toe as soon as I slipped my foot into the shoe and it would have eventually created a permanent indentation. Also, I didn't find the shoes to be as narrow as others have, but I do feel that they run a full size small. Based on other reviews I ordered a half size up, but even that felt a bit short. But that could have been due to the toe box issue. In any case, I'm returning them. So disappointed!

Pros: Great shoe for the office. Flexible once broken into. Affordable. Cons: a flavored Penny Loafer. Killer blister. Had to buy moleskins until the shoe softened. The sole and heel is plastic. Not the classic wood heeled I had in the '80s. The so called wide width is not so wide width. For the price, I'm wearing them often.

The quality of the leather is terrible. It is like vinyl. And the toe bed is extremely cramped. Very cute style though.

These shoes are beautiful as classic penny loafers always are, but believe the reviews that these shoes are narrow! Had to return and I don't think that getting a half size larger would work due to the narrowness and the rubbing on my heel. Thanks Zappos for free returns!

I loved the look of this shoe. Perfect with skinny jeans and slacks, but I had to send them back as they were terribly uncomfortable. Leather was hard, rubbed the back of my heel and squeezed my toes. I wear a true 6 1/2 medium width, but ordered these in 7 wide as suggested by reviews, but they were still too short and tight across the instep. No arch support for someone with high arches. Zappos service excellent!

I ordered the burgundy leather in a wider size after reading reviews and I am very glad I did! This show in a regular width would have been too tight. And though I think these will eventually be fine, they are the stiffest pair of shoes I've ever had! I think they will eventually get broken in and relax but they are very stiff.

These shoes needed a lot of breaking in. The top of the shoe needed to be stretched quite a bit before the shoe stopped pushing down on my toenails and the heel needed to be broken in before I stopped getting blisters on the back of my heel.

I was trying to figure out the difference between this shoe and the Bass Wayfarer. I thought it was only the leather vs. man-made sole. Compared to the Wayfarer, the Cassell looks cheap. The leather is patent (maybe that was in the description) and just too shiny. On sizing note, I wear an 8.5M and ordered the 8.5W like a lot of other people and it fit great.

These are not your classic leather loafers. They're patent leather so they're very shiny and glossy. The burgundy is really more of a dark brown. If you're okay with that, then it's a nice shoe. I'm returning because I really wanted the classic leather. As for size, I normally wear a 9 narrow. Ordered a 9 medium and they fit well.

Wore out a wonderful pair of Earth Shoes loafers. Took almost 20 years! Wanted another pair but couldn't find them so came to Zappos. Love the look of the penny loafers. I have a flexible arch meaning my foot is one width at rest and almost 2 widths larger when standing! I ordered the 9 medium. They are very tight but rather than exchange them, because they are leather, I will wear them a little at a time to break them in. I'm afraid to get a larger size or width because then I have to deal with gaping on the outside of the shoe. I do wish it had better arch support. Doesn't compare to the Earth Shoes for comfort right away, I hope they will fill the bill in time.

Shoes ran smaller and more narrow than true to size. If you have even the slightest bit of width in your foot, get the wide.

No arch support and they fit like a leather bag. Good quality leather, made into a bad shoe. What a waste.

I had owned a pair of loafers for work previously but these were tighter than expected. The stitching rubbed the back of my heels. I don\'t remember having that happen with the previous pair.

First of all, I love Zappos. I ordered these shoes in 8.5 wide. It was a good fit. I can go between a 9B or 8.5W. However, the shoes look cheap and the stitching was sloppy, the leather looked like plastic. It was very disappointing so I returned these shoes.

Like the color and the fit, however, they are cheaply made and look it. I've actually seen better leather on $30.00 shoes at Walmart. I don't know why companies like Bass do this, but they do. They're okay for jeans.
