I wanted a penny loafer that had an Italian, lower-profile. It had to work for casual, but not look like a clunky walking shoe. These have that look. They look great with jeans or a suit. I also wanted an American or Italian made shoe, not Asian. These are made in USA. My only reservation: they are very stiff leather. I think they're breaking in. But after being spoiled by soft Italian calf-leather shoes, these are a little harsh.

Tight through the arch. Thought it would loosen, it never did. The sole of the left shoe squeaked incessantly and could not be tamed. AE replaced the pair without hesitation. Good service.

This is a Day 1 review. I believe the other reviewers have talked about how stiff these shoes are, and I can't completely disagree with that assessment. I would say though that I anticipate they will break in fairly well over the course of the next month which is a fine trade off for me given that this style of penny and color is a hard combo to find (plus the AE quality). I also suspect that these will burnish nicely over time, probably following the first sole replacement. Out of the box, the leather does squeak a bit, but again it's Day 1 of the breaking in period. The toe box is generous even if the shoe is just ever so slightly on the narrow side (not enough to qualify it as narrow). That too will give once they are broken in. Overall, I would say go for it if this is a style you're looking for.

The sole is already delaminating in front on one shoe. I am losing faith in Allen-Edmonds shoes. Have been a loyal customer through many Park Avenues and Waldens for over 20 years.

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 +.

Slight discoloration on top of each shoe. Paper stuffing missing from each shoe. a little too large to fit comfortably.

Shoes fit great. I average 10.5 but in Allen Edmonds I'm always a 10. Zappos shipped the shoes in a box with no packaging filler. Shoes came in a destroyed box (looks like it was run over by a lawn mower). There were no dust bags included which was disappointing. Shoes arrived fine. I give Allen Edmonds 5 Stars and Zappos 2 for just a poor delivery and missing dust bags.

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.

Great looking shoes that seem well made, but they are so stiff. I've walked miles in the shoes; I've had them stretched, but they aren't breaking in to any degree. I'm not giving up as they look great and were kind of expensive, but I am getting frustrated. I wouldn't recommend at this point.

Too narrow, too short. Sole is already delaminating in front on one shoe. Stiffest shoe I've every put on. Looks nice but not great.
