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.

    On the more casual side, but I am considering these with the 25% off http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Rancou...entpos=1&cgid=

    Tempted to buy and be able to return if they don't fit. I can wear either 9.5E or 10D in AE 5 last.

    @77Pat Thanks for the tip on these Rancourts. I have another pair of Rancourts that are great and this is a great price - especially with free shipping from Shop Runner on top. Always wanted to try venetians. I think the more casual leaning style will make these easy to wear. Glad you don't wear 13D since I think I got the last pair.
