Natural Chromexcel Lug Sole Leisure Handsewn Penny Loafer
Alden has arguably become the world’s most known maker of fine shoes. Their long lineage, filled with numerous design innovations, forms much of the basis for American footwear.
The Leisure Handsewn (or LHS) penny loafer is a perennial favorite of ours. This version, made up exclusively for us in natural Chromexcel (the leather used for Alden Indy boots), is a true workhorse and might be the quintessential Summer vacation shoe. The hard-wearing uppers can take just about anything that's thrown their way, while the combination of a natural cork footbed and a lightweight rubber lug sole add an unprecedented level of comfort, rivaling your favorite pair of sneakers.
The classic design and character of the leather make these extremely versatile. They look great dressed up with a suit, but perfectly at home with chinos, denim, linen and just about anything else.
We love penny loafers and think this workboot-inspired version is just about perfect.
The Van last runs approximately one half-size big, we recommend sizing down one half-size (E.g - US 9 = US 8 1/2)
