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.

I was disappointed - The leather is *very* soft on these, they just didn't perform like a traditional loafer. While soft leather isn't necessarily a bad thing the shoes became misshapen quite easily and seemed more like a pair of flats that somewhat resemble loafters. Not what I expected.

Need a stretcher and I ordered a wide - I recently ordered this show in a 7 wide, it fits fine, but only a few minutes in them and I can't walk anymore. Is it my foot or the shoe? I do not have this problem with any other. I have always love loafers and looked forward to having them again. I was hoping that breaking them in would help but I can't stand to have them on long enough to do any good...Any suggestions?

Bass Burgandy Shoe Review - The color was spotty in several places on each shoe. I've wanted these shoes for a long time and when I opened brand new shoes and saw that the color was spotted in several places, I was very disappointed.

Not a good shoe for high arches - With high arches, this shoe almost hurts my foot just trying to put it on. Once it's on, though, it's fairly comfortable. A little tight through the toe area and a little wide in the heel area, but that could just be my foot, not the shoe.

A little stiff - I really like my new loafers. However, it is going to take a few more wearing to break them in. They are a bit stiff around the ball of the foot area. I would still recommend them if you like loafers.

I have been searching for narrow width Bass loafers for some time. I enjoyed them many years ago. The width seems to be a little wider than the norm, however, with socks they will work fine.

Wish I would have read the reviews before I bought this shoe. What a let down. Just as narrow as a regular shoe, very rigid, and so tight my usually 8 1/2 size foot can barely squeeze into the size 9. I wear insoles, and it looks like although these shoes have the insoles glued in, they could probably easily be removed and may even be thick enough to put in arch support insoles- but since there wouldn't even be room for my wide foot to wear a sock in this shoe, I would not buy it if you have to wear insoles. Too bad these will be going back- they are a nice, sharp looking shoe.

Though I read the reviews and ordered the wider width, these are impossibly tight and narrow. I so wanted them to fit. They look great but all show, no go won't work for me.

Unfortunately these shoes are cheap. They also look cheap. They have broken twice already. I have thin feet and these loafers fit which was nice, but they mold to your feet in a way that good quality loafers should not. I would go with more durable loafers if I had another choice.

I initially just loved this shoe! Bought it the end of May 2012. Maybe I wear it once or twice a week. Here it is eight months later and they are falling apart! Stitching on left shoe on top has split. Shoes fit me perfectly and I have shoes that are 20 years old, I'm easy on my shoes. Pretty unhappy with quality. Noticed shoes are made in China. Oh well.

These shoes were great until one shoe became very loose and ripped at the seams! I had only worn them two or three times.

Ugh, I had such high hopes for these shoes! Along with these, which I intended for work/office wear (slightly dressier), I also got a pair of Eastland's penny loafers, for casual wear, also in an 8W, as were these Bass shoes. The Eastland 8W fit perfectly. These however, are a full size smaller! I know what a 1/2 size smaller/larger feels like, and these are far smaller than just a half size down! Then, when I came here to order an 9W, they're out of stock. I'm very disappointed. As for comfort/quality, well, these felt like if they'd been the right size, they would have been comfortable and no one spot stuck out as particularly tight, just too small overall. The leather is quite dark, nearly black. To my eye, it appears darker than in the online photo. I'm a Bass fan, and am really disappointed that these ran so small. Its difficult to find a good quality, well made shoe in a wide width. I'm on the list to be notified if they come back in stock, and hopefully they will, and will fit. Too bad.

Not too happy with this shoe. I have narrow/ medium feet and these fit very tight. I only wore them for light office work and I noticed the leather by the stitching on the top has torn. Not the stitching, but the leather itself.

I really wanted to like these classic loafers, but they just didn't live up to my expectations. They were too stiff, bulged out at the side of the shoe, and rubbed against the back of my foot in an uncomfortable way.

This shoe was extremely uncomfortable (surprisingly). I wear a 7.5 but ordered a size 8 so that I would have extra room. However, the top of the shoe was so tight on my foot it hurt just to test the shoes around the room. I had no problems returning this shoe.

Won't fit a high instep. These shoes look great and seem to be of good quality, however, I have a high instep and they just have very shallow depth in the instep. I can't even get them on.

Was not true to size. I have worn a Bass loafer for 5 years and was looking to replace it. Unfortunately, I found that the style I had was now discontinued. This Cassell shoe is comfortable, but the minute I took a step I realized it was not true to size. It feels a half size too big. I am a 5 and when I took a step, the heel came out of the shoe. Unfortunately, I had to return it.

So disappointed with the Bass loafers. I have been a long time fan, but these loafers are not the same quality! Way narrow and very stiff leather! Won't be buying these loafers for a very long time - not until the quality and sizing come back!

I was excited for the arrival of this shoe. I'm normall an 8.5 W, but I went up to a 9 W on this shoe since the toe box looks narrow in the image. That didn't even work! They are back in the box and on their way back. I'm not even going to exchange them as the W was not very wide at all.

Shoes felt comfortable. After the first week, the stitching around the side of the one shoe began to come loose. Within two weeks the shoes were split. Took the shoes to a local shoe repair shop. Unfortunately, the shoes were unable to be repaired. The leather was torn at the stitching.
