    Review Snapshot

    Modern Prep Penny Loafer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 130.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The All-Day Cushioning & Comfort I Was Looking For Needed a pair of shoes that could get me through a couple of days at an industry event where I knew I’d be on my feet all day. Couldn’t go fully casual as it was a slacks/sportcoat/dress shirt environment. These were perfect - in both style and supportive comfort. I have high arches on feet that have become increasing intolerant and sensitive over the years. Wrong choices can lead to really serious heel and ball of foot pain - well before the day is anywhere near finished. These loafers are the right choice: Welcoming to step into, cushioning and supportive all day and stylish enough to fill the “dress shoe” requirements. I’ll be adding other colors of this shoe to my foot therapy arsenal.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well-Made, but Skimpy. I have owned several successive pairs of Rockport penny loafers, and they have been my go-to shoe for relaxing casual or even dress wear for years. This pair ( medium width, as the wides were too generous) differ from all prior ones in having what seem to be low height in the heel counters, so that they feel more like slippers (or sandals). The length up front is tight, but wearable. The heels keep feeling like they are coming off as I walk (and they are not yet broken in). Rockport seems to have cut back on leather costs, and it is costing them. I expect to wear out a number of sock heels from the friction of my heels slipping in and out of the shoes' heels.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic style, comfortable soles I’ve been unable to wear thin-soled loafers for a few years due to foot pain. My average day involves lots of walking and standing. I need cushioned soles. These loafers fit the bill perfectly. They look like classic penny loafers, with thicker springy soles. They are dressy enough for formal situations with the comfort of work or shop shoes. I can wear them all day and night with no pain. The insoles come out easily to accommodate orthopedic insoles. It looks like they also come in a tassel loafer style, I’d love it if Rockport made the same shoe in an unadorned style.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Fit! I wear the Rockport penny loafers almost all of the time. I normally use size 11 M, which is what I ordered, and were delivered stating as such. However, they were at least a half size or mor too big, with my heels slipping out as I walked. I have had years worth of Rockport shoes, some on line and most from their stores, so this was a first for me. Normally, I trust them to be consistent that many times I have put on a new pair the day I was leaving for a European trip, and never had a problem, so I was stunned to find the shoes not fitting for the first time.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. I have purchased multiple pairs of Rockport loafers in the past and been happy with those purchases. This last purchase, not so much!!! The right shoe is noticeably larger than the left (even though the sizes marked in the shoe are the same 10 1/2). So much so that there is major slippage when I walk. Where's the quality control?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from How can size be sooo far off?? A while back I purchased a pair of Shakespeare Penny Loafers. After sending different sizes back & forth I found that 11 EW was my size. I ordered the Modern Prep at the same size and I swear that they were so big they fell off my feet! Even though the box & shoes said 11 EW, they must have been at least a size 13 or 14. Common sense would tell you that a size 11 is an 11 across all similar shoes but guess what??? It ain't so Joe. The mailing back & forth and then waiting for my credit card to be credited gets old in a hurry. Just sent them back. I may try one more time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit I bought these in desperation as my son needed them for school. He has a very large and wide foot. I ordered these online based off the measurements from our local shoe store. They came quickly and fit perfectly! He hasn't complained of pinching or tightness at all. As an active boy he and I both appreciate the soles being textured instead of the smooth slick bottom most loafers have. I will suggest if these are for daily wear if you are "hard on shoes" purchase two pair. I plan to stick with this shoe until he graduates.
