    Hey everyone,

    I'm trying to find a brown loafer with a white sole. Think classic sperry topsider but without leather laces everywhere.

    I tried this from zappos, but it's total crap: http://www.zappos.com/jd-fisk-eli

    Any ideas? Thanks for any direction you can point me in...

    Thanks for the replies, but I was hoping to find something less rustic. Definitely trying to avoid those leather laces and the rivets on the sides and not looking for a penny loafer either. I might just have to give up on the idea. Anyone else? The one's I linked from Zappos are exactly what I was hoping for, but just not in plastic!

    Thanks dudes!

    Plastic? Zappos says those are leather. ??

    Update - these things run large. I normally wear a 10 but bought a 9.5 Now after wearing them about 3 times in the last week they have stretched so much that I am debating returning them for a pair of 9s.

    I bought those 2 years ago. Sole is replaceable. It's the same sole they put on most boat shoes! Maybe it's possible to find them online. There are other colors!
