Those are called Kiltie loafers. The shoe was made to accommodate them and their removal would be problematic. First, it would look bad if the kiltie was simply cut off. Then if you opened up the seam that secures the kiltie, and removed it entirely, I don't think that you could simply resew the seam, you would probably have to deal with some excess leather. I wouldn't mess with them.

You could probably use an exacto knife and very carefully cut the fringes away, but they would never look absolutely perfect.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
