The Ben Silver Harvards are beautiful loafers— though the ones I have possess leather soles. Dainite would be my preference— just didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg.

C&J can always resole them after the leather wears out.

Luigi, Bowen is not Alfred Sargent sub specie.
Bowen owns Alfred Sargent, and has some of its shoes made by them.
'Sub specie' might be translated, more or less, as "under the appearance of"

Another interesting Loafer/Dainite sole option is the Allen Edmonds Addison, in Chromexcel leather.

More for our American friends as they are not available here. They can be ordered online though.

Cole Haan also did loafers with Dainite soles, but they are discontinued.

I had exactly the same years ago with a Nike air sole, i don't know if Cole Haan and Nike are still doing collabs. They were comfy and great for walking long distance.

Showing name and address on the newspaper isn't very secure though...
