I'm probably going to snag the Sea Islands since more than one have commented how insanely comfortable they are with no mention of the dreaded squeaks.
Funny that I have become an authority on Loafers . Despite my moniker(it actually comes from a small town in The North Carolina hills that my grandparents retired in; Loafers Glory, NC), I own more Oxfords and Derbies......but I do love my Loafers!

The Sea Islands are a great choice for your environment. I would also look at the Oak Street Bootmakers penny.....different look entirely, and comfortable in a different way. Another dark horse is the AE DeSoto (discontinued), but comfortable and they look great in a lower profile way. I could go in more depth for each one, but the kids are still up. Let me know if the others are interesting, and I will get pics and details together for you after bedtime.
