Article no. 14996 - Penny Loafer in Dark Brown Suede Leather

The classic penny loafer men's shoes earned its name from the signature slot in the tongue strap that was used to hold a penny that could be used to make an emergency phone call. In the 1980s, they were made popular in the USA by bankers on Wall Street who wore them almost as a sort of Wall Street uniform.

 

Strictly speaking, as with all other forms of loafers, penny loafers are considered casual shoes, and should not be worn for formal occasions. However, in darker tones like dark brown or black, they are suitable shoes for work, and the convenience of not having to deal with tying and untying shoelaces is a big part of their popularity amongst corporate working executives these days.

Features: 

  • Goodyear-welted construction
  • 915 chisel last
  • Testa De Moro calf suede leather used for the uppers
  • Calf lining
  • Leather sole
  • UK sizing (refer to size conversion chart)

  • When deciding on your size for a loafer, we recommend you take half a size smaller than your usual oxford shoe size.

Step 1: Using a water repellant spray like Saphir Medaille d'Or Invulner spray, apply a thin and even coating to the surface of the shoes, to prevent them from getting stained by water or other liquids.

Step 2: If your shoes happen to get dirty from wear and tear over time, use a suede cleaner like Saphir Médaille d'Or Omninettoyant cleaner to remove the stains and refresh the colour of the suede.
