I had 10 pairs of black loafers sent to me- I went with these primarily on fit, but when it came down to the last 3 pairs they had the best combination of style and sole/foot bed comfort and fit. What really put these over the top for me is that I have a pair of Bass I bought about 12 years ago. These are still my most comfortable dress shoes and have weathered very well. So maybe I purchased based on brand, but I am very happy with them. The leather feels tougher/thicker/stronger than other shoes (the Kenneth Cole had by far the softest leather but felt very, very thin in the sole), and even now after a couple weeks when I first put them on, they feel like I'm still breaking them in (fine within a few minutes though), but I believe long term these will be the best, which is what I am going for.

The color seems to be a flatter brown that how it looks online. The elongated toe box was a bit more trendy than what I wanted.

Great shoes! Good looking and good fit. I have a half-mile walk from my train station to my office each way every day. I wore the shoes right out of the box and they felt like I'd owned them forever!

Great shoe for everyday wear, especially if you have to walk a bit to get to work. Leather is shiny and resilient. Shoes are comfortable after a little bit of breaking in. Look pretty good with a suit, though a little on the casual side. Would recommend!

I'm in my 50's and wear business casual/dress every day. My 20 something kids convinced me I should have a pair of these to be more hip. They seem to fit a half to a full size larger than advertised, are reasonably comfortable, but I would not wear them every day. For the money, still a pretty good deal though.

Zappos service is great and no hassles with delivery. Arrived on date as promised. The shoe itself is great, fashionable, and very comfortable. One drawback is that it has a very strong leather smell. I've had shoes for almost a month and the smell is still there.

I bought these shoes solely based on their style as it is hard to tell how well they're made on pictures online and if they will fit comfortably. My shoes arrived at my office super fast (next day) and I am happy. Although, the fit is a bit snug, so I hope they stretch out a bit after wearing them. I know that I can easily return them to Zappos, so I didn't hesitate to place the order.

Just started wearing shoes. A few days to break in and they are comfortable now. They seem well constructed and hopefully will hold up well. I thought the price was reasonable and I am happy with my purchase.

These shoes are great! They are a nice color brown and they are very comfortable to boot. I have had them for about a month and no problems. I did have to get gel insoles for them as I am on my feet a lot during the day and never sit down. After that they have been awesome. I recommend these.

I originally was looking for brown loafers for my husband but when I saw the video of these - the sleek, polished black toe of this shoe peeking from underneath the cuff of the slacks. These shoes beckoned to me, "Buy me!" And I did. They were extremely worth it for the price and the superb quality that these offer for such an incredibly reasonable price. I prefer these over the other top brand designers that I have purchased in the past for my husband. The added appeal of these loafers is that they can be dressed up or down. My husband has a professional job which requires him to wear a shirt and tie daily, but these are also very good looking with slacks and a button up for a night out. I absolutely love these and if it matters much - so does my husband. He gushed over these about as much as a guy can but I could tell that even he was taken with them as well. A definite no brainer and a must buy.

I love these shoes. I work in a warehouse and I am on my feet 8 to 10 hours a day. They are very stylish and have plenty of padding/arch support. I bought the brown ones first, two months ago and I am very happy with the Ecco brand so far. Yes, they are a little expensive, but worth the money. If you are looking for style and comfort these are the shoes to buy.

This is probably my husband's fourth pair of these shoes. We've tried more expensive, top-of-the-line brands, but keep coming back to these because they look good, they're well priced and they hold up well and perhaps not quite as long as some of the more expensive brands, but certainly well for the price. My husband's hard on his work shoes because he does a lot of walking around a campus, but I (and I'm sure he!) would highly recommend them.

Great shoe. Great craftsmanship, compares favorably to shoes priced 2-3 times as much. Including Ecco and Rockport. And just as comfortable. I tend to be a brand snob with shoes, so I was a bit ambivalent about ordering the Bass Alberta. Had a pair of Bass Bucks in college so not much experience with this brand. BUT when you factor price into the equation, this shoe deserves 6 stars.

Brands I'd also recommend: ecco, rockport, clarks

Attractive shoe. Bought for my boyfriend and it seems one foot is a little bigger than the other, so he ended up with a bit of a blister on the one foot. Fairly comfortable once broken in. He is happy with them.

This shoe is a good fit for me. I have issues with finding size 13 that are easy to slip into. One issue though is they have a weird plastic smell that hasn't gone away after a week of wearing.

Cheap product. Leather just looks very cheap. You get what you pay for. Most high quality leather shoes can simply get a shoe shine to buff out scrapes, etc. These get scuffed, and they're done. Leather rubs off to reveal a cheap, rubbery, under side. Basically, the shoes are ruined. Had them for about 3 months. POOR. Buying more expensive ones now. The lesson is always: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! Should have just paid for the more expensive shoes first and saved the money.
