A Penny for Your Socks
f you believe the legend, penny loafers came from the need to make a phone call. While slip-on shoes date back to early man, the term “penny loafer” is said to come from a new footwear design in the 1930s that had a slit big enough to house a penny in each shoe. Those two cents were just enough to make a phone call. From then until now, the penny loafer has endured as a refined but scholarly staple of the wardrobe.
Here, we’ve given one of the world’s most classic shoe styles an upgrade with these men’s Florentine-style loafers. Unlike designer-name shoes that are made in Malaysia, these loafers are handcrafted in Italy by some of the country’s best cobblers. Formed from lush brown Italian leather, these shoes are perfectly suited for both work and play — hands down, these are the finest penny loafers in the world.
Normally a pair of Italian leather shoes made by Italian craftsmen would set you back far more than a couple cents. But because we have an office in Tuscany and connections with artisans across Italy, we can beat the competition on price. For our two cents, these penny loafers would be a welcome addition to any man’s collection.
