These shoes are a beautiful addition to anyone's casual wardrobe. I purchased a 9 1/2 med since they do not come in wide widths -which was fine. They fit perfect.

Very narrow shoe. The leather has yet to stretch but I am still hoping it will. Nice shoe except for the width sizing.

Beautifully made leather shoe. Overall quite comfortable. It was a tad snug when I first tried it on and took some breaking in before it felt comfortable. I probably could've gone a half size larger and been better off. I can only wear this shoe with thin socks, but it is otherwise very comfortable now that the heel is broken in.

These were a gift for my daughter who has wide feet. She loved the shoes she tried on but couldn't find the wide size. Zappos to the rescue. She's told me that they were a bit tight at first but stretched out within a week and that they are very comfortable. Also, she gets lots of complements at college about them!

These shoes were short relative to what this size normally runs. I ordered my normal size and felt like my big toe was poking through the front of the shoe on top.

Shoes are well made. They run very narrow, so I had to return them and order a wide - usually take a med. Zappos is the greatest website. I order from them as much as possible. Thanks Zappos.

I would agree that these shoes are narrow, but I happen to have narrow feet. I thought they were going to be painful because the first time I put them on the were very tight. I wore them with a light sock and to my surprise, the shoes were comfy. After a few wears thy feel great with or without socks.

I love this shoe and I love Zappos! A very comfortable, classic preppy shoe that's impossible to find in stores. I'm very happy with this website. It is very easy and convenient to do business with Zappos.com. Returns are incredibly easy and the shoes ship so quickly, it's amazing. I will definitely buy more shoes from this online store.

I recommend these shoes! I have looked for these shoes for five years; I finally found them with Zappos! When I ordered it said they would arrive within 5-7 business days, but instead I had them within 2 days! I was pleased with the shoes and would definitely buy from Zappos again.

A good shoe, but order smaller than you normally wear! I like this shoe and it's very comfortable, but it took three tries to get the right size. The third try was a full size smaller than I normally wear, and it finally fit like it was made for me.

Penny Loafer - Another Bass product that is sharp looking, well made, and never out of style. I always revert back to this classic to dress up my chinos as well as my Levis. Fits well, needs a little breaking in, but should last awhile. It's Bass! Zappos is great, had my order in 3 days!

These shoes are much darker than you would expect. They almost look black. Even the wider size is not so wide...still narrow at the top. Sharp shoe but not what I expected.

First off, Zappos is amazing. I bought these shoes on a holiday, in the middle of the night, and yet received them the next day! What!? Just, awesome. Now, about the Bass Casell. It's certainly a classic, good looking shoe. I was worried it would be narrow, but it fit true to size and it's comfortable immediately. The downside, really, is that the shoe's material is pretty much plastic (or feels like it), but it's a very low sheen. Great value loafer though.

The shoes look extremely long. They are tight across the toes and don't seem to be stretching out to quickly.

The shoe runs too narrow. When I crouched down the seam literally split open. I took them to get repaired but it simply isn't the same.

I wanted to like this shoe more than I do...a month in, I feel like I'm still breaking this pair in and they definitely rub my heels a bit painfully. The toe box feels very narrow and I probably could've gone a half-size bigger; over time, it's felt more comfortable though. I like the brown color and they are very nicely constructed - it seems they'll last a long time.

These shoes are very narrow. My feet are not wide and I could barely jam my foot into the toe. There is no way I could wear these with any sort of sock or for very long. I will be returning for a wide width - hoping the wide also runs small and will fit normal.

This loafer not as great as I expected... I've had Bass loafers before, and I have always loved them. This pair, however, just didn't work for me. The color isn't what I expected; it is a burgandy with black "airbrushed" highlights. I would have prefered plain burgandy. Also, I always wear normal width shoes, but these are too narrow, to the point where they almost pinch my heel. This is a good looking shoe (despite the color), but the fit wasn't comfortable, and I am going to return them.

I was so happy with this shoe until it started to rip at the seams on one shoe. This happened to 2 pairs with only a few hours of use! Yikes!

I love these shoes but after only 3 weeks the threading started to rip on one side. I had to send them back...I was so disappointed.

Though other reviews said these shoes were true to size, I would say they were a complete size off.

First of all, the Burgundy color was Black with just a hint of some other color in it. Not a nice overall Ox Blood or Cordovan color like I expected. This shoe also runs very narrow, and I would say that the wide fits like a regular width. The dyed leather was stiff and plastic-like. I was disappointed, sent them back (easy) and ordered a different brand of a penny loafer.

This shoe was way too small. I could not even get my foot into it. It also came higher up on the arch than I wanted.

I ordered the size I usually get, and it was too small and too narrow even though I ordered a wide. I was very disappointed.
