Original Penguin

Original Penguin Logo
In 1955, a sportswear icon was born from the most unusual of places. Fueled by whiskey, Abbot Pederson purchased an unlikely drinking buddy for his flight home in the form of a stuffed penguin he named Pete. A quip from the seductive flight attendant onboard led Pederson to embroider this character on his new shirts. Pete the Penguin has left his mark on a league of legends from Frank to Bing and Clint to Arnie. Original Penguin had been adorned and adored by the masters of leisure and sport to define itself as an American classic. Still revered by the originals of today, this iconic brand now fully encompasses the lifestyle of what it means to be an original.

Very pretty shoe, but it runs crazy small! I’ve gotten penguin sneakers for my boyfriend several times, and this pair runs weirdly 2 sizes too small. I don’t know if there was a manufacturing error or a serious design flaw, but shoes are standard sizes and these are ridiculous.

tees are very thin, should be great for hot days. very little shrinkage. worth the money. also they are very soft. wondering how they hold up.

Rubber band is completely concealed under fabric, both inside and out, but these are not for people with thicker legs. they are very tight around the thighs.

The problem with this shoe is in the design. The instep has a seam that creates friction at the middle of the arch. This could possibly be combatted by the shoe having a liner that covered the seam, or by wearing no show socks, but the whole aesthetic of the shoe begs to be worn without socks. So it begs the question, "why wear this style of shoe if you can't wear it without socks?"

I usually wear 10 in gym shoes 9.5 sometimes 9 in dress shoes. I got the recommended 9 and my heels were slipping out of the back on the shoe slightly, but enough. I really wanted this shoe to fit. I ordered 8.5 sure enough it fit great! I also wear orthotics in my shoes. The leather is thick and stiff and I’m sure will wear in wonderfully. I have been looking for something business casual and nice for awhile. I’m so grateful they have easy free exchanges! Zappos makes it easy!! Customer Service reps are all clear warm personable and I can feel their smile over the phone. Thanks Zappos!

It's hard to move in these shorts, the material has zero give or stretch. Standing still not moving they're great, but just walking around apartment was difficult. Certainly you can't swim in these.

The shoe looks great and is very comfortable but has absolutely no durability. I'm usually able to have shoes last 6 months to a year but the sole of those shoes became paper thin within the first month and i now have to change them 3 months in. Would not recommend.

Really like these shoes, they have style and are comfortable compared to the dress shoes I normally wear. Only problem I had really, was that heel of the shoe felt... cheap... like cardboard and I could see how over use could cause problems down the road. I feel as though 3.5 stars is more appropriate, because I wouldn't walk around in these longer than 8 - 12 hours.

I really liked the style, but they are way too narrow. I typically need to wear shoes with a narrow profile, so these are super narrow and stiff with no give. I think if I went a 1/2 size larger, they would still be too narrow.

This blue was very pretty, but it does not fit like a standard large. It is the width of an XXL. Returned.

I bought a S, M and L. The sizes are TERRIBLE. The S was basically XXS, M was a XS and the L was barely a M and INSANELY LONG! I own tons of Penguin clothes and it's never been this bad. These sizes are too inconsistent to be useful.

I wanted a suit that was shorter in the leg and a bit more fitted than what I have been wearing. This item was what I was looking for. I liked the style. I’m pleased with the purchase.
