Originally worn by American college students, the penny loafer has become the best-known type of slip-on shoe in the world. Goodyear-welted and handcrafted from the finest calfskin, this comfortable women’s slip-on shoe can be worn year-round.

Stylish women’s dark brown penny loafer


Like all slip-on shoes, the penny loafer is quick and easy to put on and take off. No. 185, however, boasts a unique basic shaft cut, evocative of the traditional Norwegian shoe. Like this dark brown women’s penny loafer, the Norwegian shoes once worn by Scandinavian fishermen also boasted vamps sealed with a U-shaped insert. On this model, the vamp insert is accentuated by a seam running parallel to the edge of the sole.

No. 185’s Goodyear-welted construction (the supreme shoe production method) means this shoe is extremely durable, high in overall quality, and, when necessary, easy to repair. While the shaft consists of fully-dyed dark brown calfskin, the lining and insole are made of vegetable-tanned cowhide. The shoe is additionally fitted with a premium Rendenbach leather sole and heel. Rendenbach leather outsoles are prized worldwide for their durability and natural water-repelling properties.

The classic design of this dark brown women’s penny loafer pairs nicely with many different kinds of outfits. Whether worn with jeans, cloth trousers or a summer dress, this traditional slip-on shoe is always sure to look tasteful and stylish.

These comfortable slip-on shoes were invented at the turn of the 20th century and are considered offshoots of moccasins. Although, like the moccasin, the loafer features a shaft that is sealed at the top with a vamp insert, this type of shoe differs from its predecessor by also featuring a thin leather outsole and a heel.
