    So, I wear a size 8.5. or 9 for shoes. I ordered a 9...it was entirely too large. So, I re-ordered the shoes, in a size 8.5...still to large. Again, I ordered a smaller size. It fit but was still a little roomy. Fine. So they run larger, at least for me.

    Now my real problem: I have only had these shoes for a month, and the heel is already broken on one shoe - the rubber has separated from the sole, and the other is starting to break as well. I work retail, and although I move around a lot, I have never had a pair of shoes be ruined this quickly. Ever! Definitely not happy. Also, this is the only review I have ever made. That's how un-happy I am.

    Our buying habits have changed in the past several years. More people on a tight budget is part of the reason. Brand names we have heard of for decades as being top of the line that have fallen in quality and now are riding on that once good name, is another reason. That reason is why being able to read reviews has become a fundamental part of ANY purchase I make. In the past year I have had to replace my entire shoe wardrobe, and have been pleased with every "review read" choice I have made. BUT my purchase of these loafers was like Cinderilla trying on the glass slipper! The moment I slipped my foot into these shoes, and then walked in them, I knew I had a whole another level of quality and comfort. They are a dream to wear. The size is dead bang on target...the look of the shoe screams "I am quality, baby"! I was so thrilled with this gem of a find that I ordered three more pair of loafers in different colors and styles, and I will purchase more as Spring an Summer approach. The majority of the reviews I read convinced me the quality I was looking for I would find with Bass, and they were right. There were some reviews that complained, saying Bass was not what it once was. To them I reply, "if Bass was better than it is now, wearing them must have been an out of body experience"....I truly can not imagine how they could possibly be more fantastic then they are now. My ordered arrived in the morning before I had dressed for the day. I put them on and kept them on. My sister's comment was if I loved the way they looked and felt now, just imagine how great they'll look when I'm wearing something other than pajamas! You will really be happy with this purchase...more so than you'd expect! Enjoy!

    In an era where everything seems to be taking on a life of it's own, the classic penny loafer is still a staple in our closet. To have such a fine crafted penny loafer, still available through Bass and Amazon, is simply amazing and refreshing. The Wayfarer design is meticulous, but I wish BASS would make this penny loafer design in a wide and an extra wide, for women's feet, as we have been forced to hand this pair down to a grandchild, because it's simply too narrow as a B width.

    Ok- here's the skinny. I have owned Bass shoes for years, particularly loafers. These are not quite the usual- somethings off. The first pair arrived and fit a whole size too large. So I returned and did the half-size down, just to be safe. I am normally an 8.5 wide. I could have gotten a 7.5 wide. (In no other shoe on the planet am I a size 7.5.). The heel is not all wood as Bass shoes should be- bottom has a painted rubber end to it and the paint began to wear off within two hours of regular wear. The right shoe is a half size LARGER than the left shoe! The leather is not the same last-forever quality that regular Bass Weejuns are-- but still, real leather. Read the reviews here. you will find some say way too big, way too small-- one shoe different than the other is a common complaint. The bottom of mine revealed a slight color variation that tells me these shoes were NOT made as a pair together. After all of this, I am keeping them. Why? Because superficially, they look fine and pass as the real deal. And I am too busy to go to the toruble of returning yet another pair. I will be shoving a heel grip in the back of the too-large right shoe and buying another pair of Bass Weejuns in another color from a reputable place, Macy's or the like. It is worth the extra $30 or so to have the quality and be rid of the headaches associated with this purchase. If you buy them, its a crapshoot wther they'll be okay and not need to be returned. If you're a die-hard Bass fan, you will note all the signs that these are defective, so skip them.

    One shoe was bigger than the other. They were also too narrow, but I thought by wearing them they might loosen up. However, one shoe being larger than the other one I cannot tolerate.

    Amazon had them picked up the next day, no expense to me.

    I love these shoes. I've had Bass penny loafers since 1980, but its been quite some time since I purchased a new pair. I wish there was a better control on sizing. The black size 7 1/2 are 1/2 inch too long, but I am stuck with them since the soles mark up immediately upon trying them on even on carpet because they are leather. I need to wear socks and heel grippers. I wanted to wear them barefoot, so I just ordered a pair in a 7 and can't even get my feet in them even with nylons. They are both too short and too narrow. What a GIANT difference a half size makes! If the size is right, you have a winner. Could it possibly be they were made in El Salvador where the quality control may not be in place? I mistakenly thought Bass were made in America. I didn't check the inside of the shoe for the country of origin until getting this shipment yesterday. Now I get to send another pair back and pay for the return shipping, too.
