LOL, looks like someone's post was held for moderation.  It's not an error.

Not really. Much prefer one-colour shell Modified last penny loafer. These are from Anatomica.

^^ That's a nice looking loafer.

For clarification, my sources tell me the 2 tone penny loafer above is on the Van last. The V tip is on the modified.

My father once ordered a steak, and the waiter came back with a strip of beef rolled with pesto sauce and cheese as if it were a cinnamon roll.  Upon seeing this, my father remarked, "You somehow found a way to ruin a perfectly good piece of meat."  This shoe reminds me of that.  To each his own, but I wouldn't mix two wonderful shell colors in such a haphazard fashion.

I'm not sure about the two tone loafer, but the V-Tip is interesting.  The contrasting shells are a little jarring at first.  Try to think about the shoes with a pair of trousers.  Properly paired, the trousers will bring it all together.  Beyond that, yes, it's a matter of personal preference.

In this case, the photo doesn't provide much information (probably due to the back lighting). But I don't see anything wrong.

Nothing wrong with a lil pesto and cheese.

IRL, I actually preferred the loafer to the V tip.

What's the difference between the Waterloc sole and the Cork Neoprene Sole? Are they different names for the same thing? In pictures the waterloc sole looks a little darker but it could just be the picture. I need a sole for wet weather.

good to hear - I know my size on the Modified last (9E - have a pair of cap toe shoes from TSM in that size and on that last, and they fit perfectly) - absolutely looking forward to receiving these boots -

Thanks -

That's a conversion from double leather to a commando on a cigar PTB.

Hope this helps.

 

the second pic, to me that's perfect, exactly what I want.

I'll run over to Moulded Shoe this week and drop the boots off.

You totally helped - Thanks!!

The loafer looks nice. I am not a fan of the V tip style but this one looks good. Not sure what I would wear it with.
