I bought these shoes for my husband, and he says the look and feel great. I was hoping the burgundy color would have more brown undertones than black, but that is an assumption I made not a fault of the maker.

Great shoes! Comfortable right out of the box, no "break-in" time required. Wore them all day for the first time and no pain!

These shoes are as they have been for 20 years. A great pair of shoes. The story that makes them special is Zappos. I ordered slightly too large when I placed my order and after a test around the house, thought they'd be okay. I wore them to work the first day and felt like a kid wearing dad's shoes. They slipped and slid, rubbed and chafed. They were clearly too big. I called Zappos and explained exactly what had happened. No problem! Send them back. Want to try a 10 instead? Wow. I received the new pair the next day and used the same box to ship my original pair back. Now they feel like my own shoes. I think I'll wear them for a while.

Shoe is very comfortable and broke in easily. Zappos is the most efficient buying experience I've ever had.

Time to order my second pair. The last pair has lasted about 8 years as my primary shoe. Worn almost everyday on shop floor of aircraft manufacturing facility. Best shoe I've owned.

As always Zappos comes through. Got them in a day and they are as expected. Shoes fit well and are what I would expect from a company like Rockport. They will be my go to shoes for just about everything from khaki pants to jeans. Thanks for the timely service Zappos!

Sometimes a medium width will fit my narrow foot. Unfortunately for me, this shoe is not one of those. I don't fault Rockport for making shoes true to size. I added felt pads and heel pads to minimize heel slippage. I realize it's a matter of personal taste but I would have preferred that the shoes weren't so shiny.

These fit perfectly. The sole is wonderfully responsive and springy. These have become my go-to semi-casual shoes.

This shoe is of very high quality with a sturdy fit yet very good looking. Fit is true to size. All Zappos shoes that I have bought (several) have been great and the service is unbeatable! I will not buy shoes anywhere else.

Thank you Rockport for finally returning to the classics. This is the classic American penny loafer that big guys with big feet can look good in (I'm 6'5 and 240lbs, size 14 shoe) and feel comfy. And the soles are not super thick but are still shock-absorbing. And they weigh less than a pair of Bass penny loafers with leather soles. BTW, break-in time is only one day at most. Bravo to Rockport. Glad you are back and that Reebok did not completely ruin you.

I had a bit of trouble finding penny loafers in my area, I've been told it's a West Coast thing, whatever, this boy on the West Coast wants he loafers so he turns to Zappos who have a great selection. These Rockports have everything, great style with the beef rolls on the side and most important to me, the vamp on the back. The color is a perfect casual match for jeans or casual pants and the contrasting stitching is a unique detail. The fit is fine if a shade narrow for me and legendary Rockport comfort. You can wear these all day and not feel like you have to rest the dogs. I tend to take care of my shoes and expect these to be part of my wardrobe for many years to come. A couple of false starts with sizing and a couple of other brands (Sebagos weren't available in my size when ordering) but all in all a very satisfactory online shopping experience. Bart Gessner

Rockport version of Bass Weegins are comfortable from day one. They are not made of fine leather but rather with a more rubberized version thereof. They do not support a high polish finish as the leather is by nature, dull. Not a replacement for dress shoes but a comfortable second.

Excellent shoe, when you have to be on your feet all day, and still want to make a good appearance, these shoes from Rockport, truly are a winner. The comfort factor is excellent, the support is first rate, and speaking of first rate...my hat's off to Zappos, for their excellent customer service, and high quality products, I wont shop hardly anywhere else.

I was looking for the Agawam penny loafers which my husband has been wearing for years and he loves. This shoe looked the most like a direct replacement for the Agawams, and he is very happy with them. Zappo's had the best price.

The shoes are great. Very comfortable! Second Zappos purchase - excellent service just like the last time I bought from here! The shoes were on my doorstep in two or three days, and well packaged. Saves me an aggravating trip to the mall.

These shoes were handsome from the opening of the box. They are lightweight and sturdy but the sole has a nice form but cushy feel. After a short period of breaking in the unexpected stiffness in the bending of the sole, I am very pleased with overall quality and feel. I would buy these again.
