Grabbed a pair of the loafers finally. Extremely well put together like all other GS I’ve seen.

Trying to decide how I feel about the fit. I have room in the toebox which is nice, but the heel is a little loose and doesn’t grab like I’d prefer. The strap itself is tight but I’m sure that’ll loosen up in a few wears.

Wondering if I should size down another 1/2. I’m worried they’ll be sloppy once broken in. My main concern about sizing down is how much tighter the strap will be out of the box.


All that said, I’m very impressed overall

I found, with the loafer, that I had to go down 1/2 over Brannock, strap was tight at first, almost too tight first few wears, but heel was spot on, and toe room was fine. The more I wear them, the better they fit and I'm not worried about them becoming overly loose. And they are extremely well put together, you are right.

Thanks. These are 1/2 down, and I think there’s a good chance they’ll be great when broken in. Some other companies chromexcel gets really loose when broke in but GS bluchers stay together well. Mainly wondering if the loafers are the same way

I would suggest to stick with that size. We haven’t really seen many customers experience a looser fit or more heel slip once broken in. It’s usually the opposite, having a better heel fit once the shoe has been worn a week or two. Especially if the instep is already snug.
