This is a classic shoe that has gotten better since I first wore it 50 years ago. There's a nice arch pad in the shoe that adds support and therefore comfort. The best possible shoe with jeans, a tee, and cardigans to make the outfit work for school. I did order a half size down from my regular size and the shoe is perfect (normally I wear a 9.5w or 9.5ww, bought the 9w and am happy).

Very comfortable shoe that you can wear with anything. I am thinking about buying another pair just in a different color.

I hoped this would be a good value, and it met my expectations. Not the most solid Bass shoe. But the price was right. And so was the fit. Happy with purchase.

Very comfortable, but too small. Bought the Cassell in a 7 and it was too tight. Meanwhile, I also bought the Bass Wayfarers (a very similar style) at the same time and I'm opting to keep the Wayfarers instead of the Cassells. Interestingly enough, the Wayfarers I'm keeping is a 6.5. Despite similar styling, sizing is very different. With all Bass products, it seems you really need to try a specific product to see what size is best for you. I could go up a half size in the Cassells to a 7.5 and I think it will work well because they're so comfortable, but I'm choosing the slightly less cushiony Wayfarers because I think the materials (referring to the sole and heel only) will last longer over time and is therefore a better investment. The Wayfarer has a leather sole and a heel that - with the help of a cobbler - could easily be replaced or fixed multiple times, as I've done with other leather shoes. That might be possible with the Cassell, not sure. Gave the Cassell a 5 in comfort, because in the right size, this would be wonderful walk in all day.

These are the perfect winter work shoes. They look great with skinny pants and dresses/skirts with tights. I can wear them all day with no comfort issues. Also the heel height is just right for taller ladies who like a bit of a heel - not too high for me, and I am 5'9½".

These shoes are very well made. I'm sure they will hold up indefinitely. The only problem I have with them is they are kind of narrow in the toe area. I will probably return them because of that. But, I'm still debating because I'm wondering if they might stretch out a bit as I wear them. They are really nice, cute booties and the quality is just fantastic! I wear a 6 1/2 medium and they fit so well other than the narrow toe box.

I love these shoes. they are the weejuns that I used to wear. Leather soles, nice. I usually wear a wide and got these in a wide but probably could have gone with a medium. I also took other reviewers' advice and got a half size smaller and glad I did.

Believe the advice about buying a half-size or so smaller than you normally wear. I bought them in my usual 9.5wide and I can't keep them on, even with a heel pad and very bulky socks. So I just ordered them in 9wide. (I was smarter when I bought the penny loafers and so I know the 9wide fits me just the way I like.)

Ordered these shoes once. Wore them once, sole came off the right shoe. Zappos was kind enough to send me a new pair as soon as they could, which I wore for about 4 days before the stitching came undone and the front half of the shoe fell apart. Terrible quality craftsmanship.

These are cute and comfortable, for what they are. I've had them for a year and a half, wear them probably once or twice a week. Today one of the straps broke in half and now they are garbage. I'm not impressed that they only lasted that long, but they were nice while they lasted.

The style of the boot is great and the cognac color is beautiful. I ordered my usual size 8 but unfortunately it was too narrow. I don't think going up a size would help. My foot is wide but I don't normally need a wide width shoe. I'm sad to send it back. I have been looking at these boots for awhile.

Love, love, love these shoes. I can stand up and teach them all day, and my feet still feel great at the end of the day. Best of all, they look fantastic. I wear them with pants, dresses, jeans, whatever.

I wear 7.5B typically. After reading reviews I ordered 8W. They were wide on me and I was concerned they would stretch and be too wide, so I returned for 8B. Tabathia S. was my chat help person and she was amazing. Helped me so much and the return/exchange and made it totally easy and fast. Shoes look great, feel great and I'm a happy lady.

Bass weejuns are surprising comfortable now that they've got some arch padding in them. Believe the report that they are sized big. I usually wear a 9.5w or ww, but I had to size down to 9w in these. Such a classic style. I've loved and worn them for over 50 years.

The shoe is very soft and comfortable, not like the other two Bass loafers that I own that are comfortable but the leather is not as soft. I really like this shoe.

I ordered the burgundy leather in a wider size after reading reviews and I am very glad I did! This show in a regular width would have been too tight. And though I think these will eventually be fine, they are the stiffest pair of shoes I've ever had! I think they will eventually get broken in and relax but they are very stiff.

I bought these shoes a half size down after reading reviews and they were way too small. I had to return them and then saw the pair that have a man mad sole so ordered them instead. Also, they were very burgundy and shiny, a little too much for my taste.

I love these adorable boots! I wear a size WW but took a risk and ordered them anyway. Because of the cut and lack of seaming in the instep, they fit without pinching. I rated comfort average due to heel height.

These are great looking shoes! I bought a few different sizes for my son and my husband ended up keeping a pair too! I highly recommend.

A classic that never goes out of style and a staple that goes with everything. But they're not kidding when they say they run big! Go a half size down!

It was an unusual process. the first were a little large, but the finish was too flat to be proper Bass Wejuns. Then the smaller size arrived color was traditional, and the fit on the left show was perfect. I couldn't get my right foot in the shoe. Third time was the charm, I got both cordavan and black 7 W and they looked right. Absolutely thrilled. These loafers have always been stiff and take some breaking in. I wouldn't pick them for a long day out right out of the box, but they are a classic.
