First post, not sure if this deserves a thread. I'm 22, 14D shoe, new to style. I do not own penny loafers and would like to buy an OK pair. My max is 150 but i'd prefer the $100-120 range. While at Macy's I saw these in black on sale for 80 dollars and bought them (fit in a 13). I would be wearing it as a standard shoe, not a driving shoe - is this ok or should I get a different shoe? Black, burgandy or brown? If I should get a different shoe, what would you advise - Sebago, Bass? I'd go for Cole Haan Pinch Air Pennies if I could find them on sale. Advice is appreciated.
I'd like some advice on shoesizing. I dont have too many dress-shoes so could anyone advice me what size fits me best generally in dress-shoes, I realise it differs between brands but whats best in most cases, a UK 7 or UK 8? My feet are about 26 cm. From those i tested I often find 41 a bit pinchy and 42 too big but I guess going with the smaller ones is the better option or? Will i manage to stretch them out so they fit me well? Best would be if a fellow 26 cm foot person could give me some advice.
