    Sea Island Suede Loafer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 156.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good shoe, but runs smaller and not very breathable Good suede shoe, but runs a lot on the smaller side, both in length and width. Also not super breathable. So tight that it scratched up the back of my Achilles pretty bad, and nearly impossible to wear with socks

The first time I wore them I went to a fashonistas and friends home ...She opened the door as I walked on the lawn next to her walk . She asked why I walked on the grass and said,"Just wait till you see these." at her door she exclaimed,"Cool".And I said," would you walk on cement with these?"

    Imported?

    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

    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.

    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.
