    Sea Island Suede Loafer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 160.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfied with my purchase Hesitant to buy these because of reading a few unhappy reviews regarding fit and not being made on the 65 last that has fit me perfectly for my last eight purchases.of AE dress shoes. Also, made in DR vs USA. Love these shoes. Classic style in a Gorgeous color and luxurious suede. Fit perfect. No regrets. Love my purchase. Allen Edmonds has yet to fail me. Why I never shop other shoe brands anymore in USA. I do buy shoes while in Germany and Austria every year because of their outstanding quality. AE does rival theirs and is even carried in their upscale stores where they command a higher price likely due to import duties.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shoes, Run Narrow Fit: Allen Edmonds loafers tend to have very tight vamps and these were no exception. Heels were also tight. I had to put these on my vamp/heel stretcher for a couple days each. Now they fit like they were made for me. Construction: Construction is classic full wraparound moccasin 270 degree Blake. The shew is sewn to the sole a little past the heel. The butyl leather sole is layered with a regular leather midsole which has no decorative stitching as is usually found in this style. Inside, there is a traditional padded leather half insole over brown fiber (for stability) and the heel is nailed. The padding is of above average quality. In front of the midsole is something I've never seen before - another half sole of thick bridle leather. This creates a smooth transition from the insole and some additional stability and material to mold to your foot. The handsewn areas are well-finished. Leather: Leather is a full grain reverse suede and the inside (grain side) feels like glove leather. Outside is a short nap finish, soft, but feels tough as well. These should last a long time. Note: Although Allen Edmonds does not offer recrafting on their Dominican Republic shoes, any cobbler will be able to resole these. Overall: With a slightly more pointed toe than typical beefroll penny loafers and no decorative stitching, these are a slightly more refined look. The unlined full grain reverse suede makes them better for sockless wear if you're into that.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved them, but..... I loved these shoes. Ordered two pair, one brown, one of the sand. After a year I ground though the sole on the brown pair. I sent them in to be recrafted and was told it cannot be done. Not cool, I bought them with the assumption that they could be resoled. $245.00 for a disposable shoe is not what I had in mind. I"ll buy more shoes of course, but now I know that not all AE's can be recrafted, and I feel it should have been made clear to me at the time of purchase.

    There is contradictory information on where this sho is made. Is it imported from another country or made here in the USA by AE?
    Asked by: Bill
    Thank you for your inquiry. The Sea Island Loafer is manufactured in the Dominican Republic.

    I normally wear a 11.5 D, but in your kentwood penny loafer I wear an 11 D. What length would you recommend for me in the seaisland loafer?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    I wear 11.5 EE in Kenwood loafers and wear 11.5 EEE in the Sea Island. I find all AE loafers in current sizing tend to run narrow. AE length seems to hold true for me, but generally seems narrower than in earlier years. In Nashua I bought 11.5 D and had to send back for 11.5 E

    My husband wears a 61/2 EEEEEE do you have any casual shoes in that size

    Asked by: Loggy1331
    I am not knowledge of any company that makes shoe that wide. In the 1960's and 70"s Red Wing made an H width. My grandfather who taught me how and why to measure a person's two feet every visit, often said if they had a foot wider than an H we would just have to give them the box. He further said we would not sell shoes that did Not fit, because it only took one pair of shoes that did not fit to ruin a pair of feet. Deceased grandfather Roger Neal Sutton, Sr.

    I know this shoe is NOT eligible for the recrafting service but "Can just the heel be replaced?"

    Asked by: Anonymous
    While AE won't take the time to do it, any good cobbler will be able to replace the sole and heel.

    Can the rubber heel insert be replaced?

    My rubber heel insert is just about worn down, I was told not to put taps on these so I never did. What options are there to replace the rubber insert so I can continue to wear these shoes (which I love btw) without looking like someone who doesn't take care of their footware?
    Asked by: pete
    The rubber piece is called a top lift, and a cobbler can replace it easily and cheaply. As always, be sure to find a good cobbler; unfortunately bad ones can mess up even simple jobs.

    Shoe Trees in Sea Island Suede Loafer

    Do you recommend the use of shoe trees in the Sea Island Suede Loafers or would the use of shoe trees actually damage the soft suede?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Shoe trees will stretch this particular suede due to it being so supple- and they may also damage the throat and or vamp of this shoe. I personally would NOT use shoe trees in this shoe. Allow it to have natural character.

    I wear a 11.5 EEE Park Avenue. What size should I buy for the Sea Island?

    Asked by: Chris
    I wear an 11.5E in many AE shoes. I went through probably six different shoe size/width combinations before settling at 10.5D. Another guy in the store went through several combinations, ended up only a width difference for him. All depends on whether you're going for barefoot, etc. At 10.5D, they needed one day of me wearing socks to stretch them that tiny little bit in width, and some serious manual abuse on the back of the shoe where it hits my heel, to soften it up and make it comfortable. (Note I didn't answer "how many pairs of AE shoes do I own"... I will not confess even under torture...)

    Would it be possible for me to special order this shoe in navy and a 6 1/2 D?

    I love the look of the Sea Islands, and I was wondering if I would be able to order a pair in navy, 6 1/2 D.

    They will make any shoe that you would like, it may cost a little more because it might not be stock.
