I'm having problems with this. I've had the same leather loafers for a really long time. Probably since before I became vegetarian but I really don't remember. I know I got them while I was still in high school, and I'm almost 23 now, so as you can see I like things that last a long time and I don't buy shoes often. They're getting really worn out by now. The heel is worn down in the back, so it's crooked. They're starting to get uncomfortable b/c of the imbalance in the heel. I want another pair of comfortable high-quality loafers that will last me a long time. It seems like most of the ones I find are just cheap plastic that doesn't breathe. I'm going to be doing a job during which I'm on my feet all day and that just isn't going to cut it. The only place that has something that looks like what I'm aiming for is MooShoes, but they don't carry my size (7.5) and it's expensive. I'd be willing to pay it if I knew they had something that was going to fit me, but it doesn't look like they do. In order to find out I would have to pay shipping and then wait and if they don't fit pay shipping again to send it back. Shoes are really the most frustrating thing because there are so few high quality alternatives to leather, (especially in free standing stores where you can actually try the shoes on before you pay for them!) and it's important for my feet for me to have high quality.
