*Vintage JOHNSTON & MURPHY Shell Cordovan Penny Loafer: 43-43.5C/D
Johnston & Murphy
Hand-Sewn, Moccasin-Penny Loafer
This hand-sewn moccasin penny loafer is from the earlier “on-shore” American production of this once great name in domestic shoemaking. The apron (vamp) is hand raised and the shoe is fully leather lined (unlike many less well constructed Moccasins). No doubt from the 1980s or earlier this classic has taken on the depth of colour, the rich patina, for which Shell Cordovan is so prized. In both style and construction a quintessential American shoe.
Size Details:US 10C/D......UK 9E/F.......Continental 43-43.5C/D, for the slightly narrower to medium width foot. Marcked"C" but this is a very generous "C", closer to a "D".
A well used pair, restored with leather half sole and full rubber heel and modestly worn since.
