The Penny Loafer

VERY Brief History of the Penny Loafer: The Penny Loafer first appered in the 1930's in Norway. At the time these shoes were very casual slip on moccasin style and later a strip of leather across the front with a diamond cut-out was inserted. In the 1950's American prep school students inserted a penny into the diamond cutout and the name 'penny loafer' was born.

This year I have seen penny loafers for men and women everywhere in the stores. I love this look in a pump, so of course I had to purchase myself a pair.
