Cordovan Unlined Penny Loafers
I have been wearing these shoes (not the same pair) since the mid 1980's. They are great-- this Brooks version of the Alden shoe is unlined, which makes them very soft and cool. The Van last runs big. I go down a full size; most just go down half a size. Plus now there are some available in whiskey shell from the Madison Ave. store.

These shoes are terrific. They quickly mold to your feet and are extremely comfortable. I would recommend buying a half size smaller than usual.
It would be great if BB offered this shoe in more colors.

These are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever purchased. I found the shoes to run approximately a half size large. The vamp of the shoe can be a bit tight at first but after a few wearings, molds to your foot. I only wish Brooks Brothers carried these shoes in additional colors of shell cordovan!

This is my second pair of unlined penny loafers. I bought the black ones several years ago. Because they're unlined, it seems, they conform to the foot very well, and eventually become as comfortable as house slippers. Love 'em.
