Hi. I am considering these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254955716169?hash=item3b5c8b7e49:g:aAsAAOSw2gJghYnw

However, I haven’t tried on any aldens, and there are no local retailers where I live. I have had troubles finding well fitting loafers in the past. Either heel slip or too narrow toe box.

Here is some of my sizing experience (all sizes are EU/UK):

1) Carmina Oxford on rain last sz 9: slightly large, fits well with an insole in the toe box
2) C&J lonsdale 8E: slightly small initially but fits well after the break in period
3) meermin lace ups (derby’s and boots on Hiro 9E): fits well
4) Sanders loafers Matt 8.5F: a bit tight. Wearable, but painful at the end of the day
5) herring Barcelona 2 tassel loafer 8: like the sanders

I had to return Löf and ring Alvares II tassel loafer in 9 and Loake russel tassel loafer 8.5 due to heel slipping.

would be very grateful for sizing advice in Alden penny loafers, and whether you think the one I posted would fit.

thanks!

Can't help you on sizing but you should buy them through the forum instead of ebay (win-win) if you decide that they will fit.

I have those same loafers and there isn’t any heel slip for me (narrow heel). I wish more makeups were on Copley last.
