PSA: no posting pictures of your feet, ankles, blisters, scabs,etc without a freakin spoiler tag. If someone wants to click and see it that's their choice and it's fine. But to make it so I have to inadvertently see is ridiculous. Seriously.

I'm sorry.  It won't happen again.

What is the best-looking style of Allen Edmonds penny loafers?  I rarely wear loafers -- my previous pair wore out years ago and I never replaced them -- but I'm tired of having that hole in my shoe wardrobe, especially since I'm traveling to a few casual weddings this summer and it would be nice to have loafers to wear to the rehearsal dinners, morning-after brunches, and so forth.  On the website, the differences between the different loafer styles seems pretty subtle (they might be more pronounced in person).  Does it just depend on which last fits your foot best?  Is one style more versatile than the other?  I would mainly wear it without socks in the warm months.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated!  My price range is flexible, but I probably wouldn't want to go much above $250 because I won't wear them all that often.

 

 

Also, though I realize this is the AE appreciation thread, if anybody has a non-AE suggestion, I would be open to it as well.

My fav is the patriot. I think it has a lower instep so be careful.

Quick question-

 

I picked up a couple of seconds during the 2 for 250 sales - a pair of singleton loafers and a pair of cognac ridgeway

 

The right shoe of the singletons (left one in picture) has a darker color blemish spot at the front, and a few scuffs on the side; are there any way I can go about fixing these issues?

Also what shoe polish/cream should I use for this pair? Walnut or neutral?

 

And has anyone had any experience with the cognac ridgeway or just cognac colored shoes in general? What cream polish do you use for them?

 

Thank you guys very much in advance,

I like both the Patriot and the McGraw. If you are going full price though, I'd look either at the Rancourt or the Oak Street Bootmakers. You can also get the US-made Sebago's (made by Rancourt, I believe) which retail at $400 for about $150.

Question for you, does it feel like there is a lump on both heels? When I put them on it feels like I am standing on something round.
Nah, Scottyboy920, no lumps under my heels; you may have found your pair's reason for being seconds, though. Is it present to the point of being uncomfortable? Other than the heel cushion in the poron insole, there should be little reason for you to be feeling that. There is no shank in these shoes, so I don't know.

Maybe thread members have some insight for you...

I think these look great. I'm almost tempted to get one in the walnut, but I think I blew up my shoe budget already this year!

My 2 for $250 haul. Suede Strand and Brown Fifth Street boot. I was able to pick these out in person at one of the outlet stores.

What about these?




Santoni Reed Penny Loafer; glove-like leather, crazy flexible - fold in half, SUPER sleek. Hand antiqued. They don't hold pennies, but they shouldn't, because they're too sexy for small change! I like the meaty look of the Singleton for more formal summer wear, but the Santonis will see shorts, slacks, jeans...everything. They retail for about $550, but I found for $123!

Wow. That could be the best loafer I've seen as well. Where did you get for $123?

Earl helped me out this time. You should have seen them dealing with the phone requests during the sale! I'm sure they are glad the sale is over.
