Handsewn Penny Loafer by Sid Mashburn
From Norwegian day-laborers to preppy college kids, the quintessential penny loafer has come a long way... while mostly remaining exactly the same. It's become an American classic, and true to form, it's one of the easiest shoes in the world to wear — not too fashion-y, not too fussy, and it'll probably look great with 75% of your closet. Ours is handsewn in Portugal, with moccasin construction and a slightly higher vamp for a more comfortable fit.
From L'Agence blazers to Attilio Giusti Leombruni wedges, Sam Edelman flats and blouses by Frank & Eileen, The Hive and The Shoe Hive bring you the latest trends and long-lasting styles in designer clothes, shoes and accessories. Our unique selection and impeccable client service set us apart.
