I wear these to work five days a week. They are the most comfortable shoes I have found in a while. I have a shoe rack of several shoes that don't hold a candle to these. They look good with dress pants or jeans.
I have been looking for a pair of black patent loafers which are not the easiest shoe to find. This Eastland loafer fit the bill. I usually wear a 9 or a 9.5 and ordered the 9 since loafers due tend to stretch. The 9 was too large by a good deal and I slipped right out of the heel. Since the shoes were exactly what I was looking for I took the chance to exchange for an 8.5. A bit tight going on but the narrower heel and tighter toe were not uncomfortable once on and I did expect them to stretch. Have worn them one day and they gave enough to be comfortable all day. I expect them to give a bit more with a few wearings and they should be perfect. I really like the true leather bottom loafer and heel as they can easily be resoled and reheeled which I do regularly to keep my shoes in good shape. All in all I am very pleased and the holiday discount made it reasonable to spend the money on these shoes.
I worn these after having a surgery on my foot. With a argyle sock and jeans I felt great they were comfortable out of the box!
