Penny loafers

The first penny loafers in America were developed as early as 1910. However, this men's low shoe only became known around 1930 after a company marketed the penny loafers in the universities. Thanks to its elegant cut, this men's shoe is so comfortable that it can be worn all day without problems and without aching feet. This is probably why the penny loafers were so well received by the students. Maybe because of his easy entry and exit, or especially because he emphasised the style of the person who wore this men's shoe.

According to tradition, his name "Penny loafer" was also coined by the students. As lucky charms, they are said to have put a lucky penny in the slot of the jetty when exams were pending. The Penny loafer is a further development of the moccasin. It has an outsole - mostly made of hard-wearing cowhide - and a heel. The rather wide neckline allows you to slip in easily. A cross bar usually runs over the instep. Due to its timeless appearance, the penny loafers can be easily combined for almost any occasion.

Penny loafer - men's shoes that bring luck

At a business meeting, this shoe, colloquially known as "slipper", is dressed just as attractively as in your free time, jeans. In summer, the penny loafers are extremely comfortable to wear even without socks due to their lightness and excellent workmanship. Variants of the Penny loafer are the Tassel loafer, the Zugloafer and the Laschenslipper. With the Tassel loafer, the decorative laces on the forefoot end in tassels that were previously tunnelled around the entrance.

The train loafer, on the other hand, is characterised by two rubber band inserts on the side, which should make it even easier to get in. The upper shoe is made entirely from the finest calf leather. The soles and heel, on the other hand, are made of pit-tanned cowhide, which makes them particularly resistant. This is how men's shoes are created, which sign their own, very personal style.
