Where to find a loafer, but with white sole like a boat shoe?

post #1 of 11

Hey everyone,

I'm trying to find a brown loafer with a white sole. Think classic sperry topsider but without leather laces everywhere.

I tried this from zappos, but it's total crap: http://www.zappos.com/jd-fisk-eli

Any ideas? Thanks for any direction you can point me in...

Rancourt would probably make this up for you as well.

I spent some time looking for the same thing you are. I even had a conversation with Quoddy about making one, and it looks like they gone and done it.

If the Quoddy style is too primitive, you could try something like this: : http://www.shipton-usa.com/mens-shoes/mens-deck-sailing-shoes/sloop-mens-chestnut-brown-deck-shoe.html

Thanks for the replies, but I was hoping to find something less rustic. Definitely trying to avoid those leather laces and the rivets on the sides and not looking for a penny loafer either. I might just have to give up on the idea. Anyone else? The one's I linked from Zappos are exactly what I was hoping for, but just not in plastic!

Thanks dudes!

Plastic? Zappos says those are leather. ??

How about these? They have a tan boat shoe sole though.

I was trying to find something similar, a boat shoe loafer without the laces on the side. I wanted to buy the timberlands but they only go up to size 11 for some reason and I need 13s. They do have navy with a white sole too.

I gave up and just bought the classic sperry s with laces today.

Update - these things run large.  I normally wear a 10 but bought a 9.5  Now after wearing them about 3 times in the last week they have stretched so much that I am debating returning them for a pair of 9s.

kitsuné x quoddy
I bought those 2 years ago. Sole is replaceable. It's the same sole they put on most boat shoes! Maybe it's possible to find them online. There are other colors!
