I can see why they recommend a size smaller but my big toe appears to be right where it should be; however, at the heel the shoe is loose. So, these just seem too long (maybe a 1/2 size?). Yet, I don't want them any smaller since there is zero cushion in these. I put some cushion comfort insoles in them so the fit is snug, except for the length. Considering how hard and uncomfortable the soles are, these are definitely made for outdoor use - note the picture of the soles - they are raised and very hard (but I hate it when my heel slips out when I'm outside so I'm not sure what to do with these). They are definitely not comfortable enough for just being around the house. On the flip side, as expected from this brand and at this price, the quality is very high and I can't argue with giving these points for style.

Way too big! Not true to size at all

Had to return, too big. Some of the stitching also seemed off. For a $300 pair of shoes the quality was slightly off.

So far this order was the only strike for Zappos of all the shoes I have bought. However, it might not be a Zappos problem but they took the return without question. I ordered the Park Avenue's but received the old Riverbend style instead. Not sure what happened there.

Shoe looks great, manufacturer recommends ordering usual size even though it says the show is long in the toe (it wasn't even remotely longer than regular size 10s), and narrower in the ball. Usually wear a 10W, the E was far too narrow, ordering the 3E see if that works. Overall seems like a well built shoe, mine arrived a bit scuffed and obviously had been returned by someone else. Upper felt very stiff and will definitely take a lot of breaking in, but that is typical of every Allen Edmonds show I have ever purchased.

It was clear to me that the shoes I received were purchased and returned by someone else. Also, the shoes themselves have several cosmetic flaws that would indicate to me that these were "factory seconds." The stitching in several spots looks somewhat shabby. I own 6 other pairs of AEs, so I'm familiar with the quality of their shoes. It will make me leery to purchase Allen Edmonds shoes through Zappos anymore. The customer service I received from Zappos was excellent, and ultimately I'm happy with the shoes. However, I will think twice before making a purchase like this in the future.

These are amazing shoes! This was my first pair but I liked them so much I just bought a second pair in another color. Very well made and very comfortable.

Nice styling but runs Extremely narrow
Zappos Reviewer on October 10, 2018
These look great and the quality of construction is terrific. One problem...they are incredibly uncomfortable and literally bloodied my heel and toe. Sizing is a bit odd in that they feel long and a bit narrow for the size. In any event, the comfort isn’t there and I can’t imagine a break-in period mattering too much starting at such a low level of comfort. I have other AE shoes and they are usually excellent...this pair is an exception.

Nice shoes, style and comfort is good. I generally wear a 8.5 Kenneth Cole reaction dress shoes and sneakers as well, but the 8.5 on these run a little bigger. I ordered half a size smaller (8) and they fit perfectly.

I had been looking for a penny loafer that I could wear with slacks or jeans. Somehow forgot about Allen Edmonds. Since I retired I am no longer wearing dress shoes. Still have two pairs of wing tips in the closet. Weddings and funerals. I was browsing loafers and these caught my eye also they were on sale when I bought them. I wear size 12d and these fit right out of the box. A little stiff but with all leather shoes they break in over time. You just have to wear them. Also I like the color a true dark brown just what I was looking for. Very quality shoe, leather lined, good sole and heel. Should last me a long time. My other AE have been with me for 20 years +.

Great quality belt, fits comfortably and matches perfectly with my Allen Edmonds shoes.

An excellent shoe at a valued price. Formal dress shoes are hard to find an this shoe fits the mark. Thanks.
Zappos Reviewer on September 21, 2018
great fit and feel. Allen Edmund always has a great look. You can dress these up and down
Zappos Reviewer on September 20, 2018
Best monk strap shoe on Zappos! Looks great with business casual or even jeans.

color was off.
Zappos Reviewer on September 05, 2018
Solid solid solid. Great materials. Strong construction. Classic styling. Just a super shoe that is built for the long haul.

Ordered my usual shoe size (8 1/2 M) and they were too tight. Reordered 9 E, and they were too large.
Zappos Reviewer on August 11, 2018
Fantastic shoe made of very high quality leather. I went to my local Allen Edmonds store and got fitted and I recommend you do the same. Zappos had a great price with one day shipping. I believe this shoe will last a long time if taken care of and it looks very classy, highly recommend it!

Color did not match images on Zappos or at AE. Color was very light/yellowish. Also, front of last was not even; I would consider it to be a "second". Ordered an 11, 1/2 size up, but they were too large. They were very comfortable, except for being too small/too tight. It is a quality shoe, but the sizing and color did not work for me. In general, the quality of AE shoes are better than Florsheim, Cole Haan, J&M and Jack Erwin. Pricing on Zappos is very good, as is the service.

I'm always nervous about buying shoes because my feet are hard to fit. I was really pleased when I slipped on these boots. They felt great right away. I wore them around the house for an hour and they are completely broken in. They look great with jeans or khakis. I only wish they came in a tan color.

After looking at these for a few years, I finally bought them. I bought them at Allen Edmonds during a 30% sale and I wanted to not enjoy them. After wearing them indoors there was no returning them. The leather is soft and very comfortable. The sole took a few wears to conform to my foot and now these boots feel like slippers. Only drawback is having rubber on just the heel.

The Beauty of the Shoe is outdone by its discomfort. The most uncomfortable shoe I have owned in years. Definitely well made, fine craftsmanship. But, within a few hours of wear, my feet are cramping. Very disappointed.
Zappos Reviewer on July 18, 2018
Been looking at these for a couple years and finally broke down and purchased them. Perfect fit which is ultra rare for me. Will likely resole with full rubber sole but very happy. My uncle landed at Utah Beach on DDay, how could I not have a pair?
