Zappos provided wonderful customer service! We cannot say enough good things about this company. I have terminal health problems, and the sales representative I spoke with was extremely compassionate, efficient and did everything possible to expedite my order. In fact, I received a beautiful bouquet and an offer to help in any way. Additionally, my hospice nurse sent them an email expressing her appreciation for their compassion and for reaching out to me and they again offered to assist in any way to make things easier for me. Of all the companies I have ordered merchandise from, this company goes above and beyond mere customer service. They were a blessing to me and my family sent from God.

I currently wear a 3E shoe. I ordered a 4E and it must be a slim by US standards. Couldn't begin to get it on my foot. Terrible sizing problem.

These are exceptional shoes for men with wide feet. The color is a lovely reddish brown. The style is classic. And the fit is superb! When my husband first put them on, he was concerned they were too tight (he wears a 12 4X and has major trouble finding shoes that fit properly). But after a little bit of walking, he said they were amazingly comfortable. And they look fabulous, too, which is a major bonus! He says, "they are amazingly flexible and very lightweight. In fact, they are the most comfortable dress shoes I've ever worn."

This is a very comfortable shoe. It is also a nice looking shoe; only strange thing is the really dark spot on the very front. The picture you see is not a shadow! I thought about returning them because of this, but figured with time it would look a little more natural. Overall a great shoe!

The Rockport Washington Square Penny is a comfy shoe that, thanks to its low cut, is easy to slip into and out of. Construction quality is good and styling is sharp, making it a good value for the price.

Very comfortable shoe. Well made and look good on the foot. The only thing I would say otherwise is that they do run slightly large. I have to wear them with a thick sock or else they slide around a little to much for me. But overall I am very satisfied.

These are very nice, everyday work shoe. They are comfortable out of the box, with moderate arch support and an insole that is not too "squishy." I now wear these a couple times a week.

My husband likes these shoes because the insole is removable and he can insert his custom insole with support foe his Morton's neuroma. Very nice looking shoe and comes in his hard-to-find size -- 14EE. Thank you Zappos for your excellent service, as always.

I love the way these shoes look. As with almost all penny loafers they run slightly big. They weren't very wide in the front of the foot so I went with a wide and they fit great. As always, Zappos service was excellent

My feet are very wide. It is impossible to find 4E width in stores. But not at Zappo! Rockports are beautiful dress shoes or casual. They have a reputation for comfort. Wearing these shoes is like wearing a comfortable tennis shoe. I know a coach who wears lace up Rockports and coaches in them. Now that is comfort!

Great shoe! Comfortable right out of the box. I ordered the 4E, first, because I need a wide shoe, second, so I could wear this with heavier socks. It worked. Looks great; feels great; can't miss.

Always loved Rockports but never owned their loafers. Very comfortable, a little looser fit than I'm used to be overall very good.

True Rockport quality and fit. I have an extra wide foot and the XW of Rockport fit me well. The finish of the shoe is excellent, but mostly it is the fit right out of the box that takes it over the top.

I bought these for my husband with the hope that they would be, in no particular order: 1) true to size 2) would be comfortable 3) would look like the photos. Met all three requirements and we're very happy with the purchase. Are these elegant, slim Euro-stype shoes? No - they are exactly as the photo shows - a matte leather/no shine sensible-looking pair of loafers. That happen to be a pleasure to walk in according "to the man."

Very comfortable and nice to look at. The glossy soles next to the flat/oiled uppers are an interesting combination that I have mixed feelings about. Will be interesting to see how they evolved once normal wear affords them a more distressed look.

Overall I am very pleased with these shoes. The cushioning system works surprisingly well, making the shoes comfortable for all day wear. The style is true to a traditional penny loafer look and definitely could be worn in a casual dressy work environment or with jeans anytime. Next time I might go with one of the more traditional leather looks as opposed to the Nubuck. As long as you know what you're getting, though, the Nubuck is fine. My only issue with this shoe is its sizing. I normally wear a 12 2E...which is what I ordered. They were way too big lengthwise. I returned them for an 11.5 2E which was much better. Not sure if I just got an abnormal pair or not, but it seems others have had similar experiences. Something to keep in mind when ordering. Aside from the shoe, Zappos' service was outstanding as usual. The return was handled quickly and flawlessly, as was shipping. Great way to buy shoes.

This shoe is very comfortable and sized correctly. So far, they are wearing very well. The only thing I don't like about them is that the side of the sole is very shiny, which makes them look cheap. Not a deal breaker, but would look better if this were not the case.

If you're looking for comfort, value and classic styling, you're search is over. this shoe has it all. nothing remarkable here, but if you want a shoe that goes with everything that you can wear all day these are worth your consideration.

This shoe was attractive and comfortable except for one thing: it was a half to one size larger than it should have been. I ordered a wide rather than a normal D (I have wide size 12 feet), and it was not only wide per my request, but too long.
