Dan Penny Loafer Burgundy

$290

The loafer is one hell of a thing.

The term “loafers” was born out of an Esquire magazine story in the 1950’s detailing popular-at-the-time “Norwegian Moccasin” shoes photographed on the feet of Norwegian farmers in a cattle loafing area (side note, never knew this was a term until researching this).

The "Penny Loafer" as seen here was initially created by G. H. Bass & Co, nicknamed the "Weejuns" because of their Nordic forefathers. The style was popular with young college students in American Ivy League schools in the 1950s. They featured a strap across the shoe which featured a slot that was claimed to hold a penny (whether it was a 50's era flex or a practicality thing is up for debate). Sebago took things a step further with the creation of the "Beefroll" a feature that sites alongside the penny strap & resembles a fully trussed beef roast hence the nickname.

Smooth, polished corrected grain uppers

Stacked leather sole with rubber heel cap for grip

Hand-sewn moccasin toe construction with Ortholite insoles

These loafers fit large, we recommend taking a full size down from your regular sneaker size for a snug fit that will stretch after break-in.

Listen in men's sizing, for women's add 1.5

For example Men's US7 = Women's US8.5
