The first time I tried on my Darlton penny loafers and then took them off, the sockliner inside the right shoe started to peel off. I think it was already loose or badly glued. That particular shoe actually has glue marks all over inside. Bad QC, I think. It is also lighter in color than the left shoe.
I've had this happen with Italian-made Polo shoes, a pair of Brooks Brothers loafers (also Italian made) and a pair of Alfred Sargeant boots. But it took some time and wear before it happened.
With these Darltons, it just happened right away.
