    Does anyone own these or similar RL Polo driving loafers? If so what are your impressions? How long do they last? [​IMG] Thanks. Jon.

    Yep, I own them. Have for a couple months. They are okay, but are kind of poorly designed. The rubber portions are too thick. Portions of the shoe (toe, heel) that are in contact with the ground are just leather, and will wear out a lot faster than the rubber portions. They should have made the rubber portions thinner. Driving shoes that don't have fully rubber heels should be designed for comfort--not for long life.

    That being said, these shoes are a decent value on Bluefly.

    I am fairly soft on my shoes, so I don't think they will wear out quickly (plus, I rotate so many pairs). Bluefly does not have the model I pictured on their site, but rather the model with the faux laces in my size. I did not know that bluefly carried this shoe, so thanks. I learned something new. Interestingly enough, the Polo driving loafers seem to be better designed and made than Ferragamo's that cost twice as much. Polo Jon.
