That's more of a problem with the implementation of the look than the look itself. I may be biased to this proposition because of my approach to style. Long ago I decided that I wanted to stand out, not by wearing different clothes, but by executing the classic as well as possible. I'm not saying I have achieved this but I do believe that most people who intend to look like an "individual" by wearing things that are unusual tend to look bad most of the time.

Contact the retailer/manufacturer. Explain your concerns. Ask for shoe tree advice. (Those Paul Evans, btw?)

Chukka not really my thing. So where can I buy penny loafers in dark brown online at an affordable price. I checked meermin but seems like they don't have them

This is a problem I've been having as well, where do I find a good penny loafer for prices that are slightly below C&J/AS? Looking to spend around 300 euros. I've looked at AE but I don't like their models, theyre too round and stubby IMO. Also looked at carmina but no luck there either...

Lots of choices here. There are good deals in the "sales" section.

Define affordable; you're in Italy, check out Scarosso for starters.

Today all the rules are out the window, whether debating informal v formal, shoe color vis a vis fabric worn, seasonal colors etc...and for me it's too bad; having said that, rubber soled shoes that are low profile and on a welted sole are perfectly fine. Lobb and others have dramatically increased offerings of Dainite on oxfords as the only way to visibly see them are when soles are up (as in sitting down or walking). I prefer leather on dressier shoes, but today no one cares. Go for it.

they are in fact paul evans.  i actually did contact them and they recommended these woodlores:

however, they don't appear to be such low profile trees, so I was hoping someone else might know of an option.  i will certainly try the woodlores if nothing else comes up...

I don't know, dude. If that's what the shoe manufacturer is telling you to use, you're probably best off using that. Either that, or you could have some lasted shoe trees made just for those shoes, but that's probably going to cost you half as much as the shoes again.

I use those in all my shoes that didn't come with lasted trees. They do the job.

I use whatever model Woodlore it is that can be had from Jos. A. Bank, during one of their "Buy 1, Get 2 FREE!!!" sales. Brings the cost down to 8 bucks and change per pair.

Honestly, while I'm familiar with the various arguments for one model of shoe tree being markedly superior to another, I strongly suspect that in the real world - as opposed to the world of theory - the differences (so long as the tree's cedar, and of the correct size) are trivial and largely unimportant.

I bought these before. THey didn't work well in my shoes, right size and all. The non-split toe version don't reach the toe cap in my dress shoes(AE).
