Penny Loafer Mink Suede
It's here! The newly developed and long awaited loafer last. Almost a year of development went into this last, but I can't think of anything else to improve. Fitting true to size, the loafer last has a more narrow heel for extra grip, slim waist and lower volume under the vamp for an improved no-lace fit. The toe shape can best be described as an almond toe, with inspiration drawn from bespoke samples and made by the talented lastmakers at Springline, Northampton.
Leather: Our Mink Brown suede from Conceria Zonta is a reverse suede, which means that the reverse of the skin is used instead of a split skin. This results in a very high quality suede with tight grain.
Lining leather: Chrome tanned calfskin on half sides. Soft handle and matt appearance. Genuine leather insole.
Features: Bevelled sole edge. Leather board heel counter. Stacked leather heel. Cork footbed and metal shank. Polished by hand.
Sole: Traditional Chestnut bark tanned leather sole by Cuificio Alcyone SpA (Santa Croce sull’Arno, Italy). Durable yet extremely flexible.
Construction: Goodyear welted in Almansa, Spain.
