Unisex Classic Penny Loafers!
*Made by Florsheim.
*Men's size 9 1/2D stamped on the inside leather.
*Penny Loafers were so named because they were originally worn with a shiny, new penny inserted in the upper "pocket". You can do the same for a total preppy look!
*Leather is a deep, rich mahogany color which can also be described as "chestnut brown", which is a deep brown with a touch of maroon or burgundy.
*Constructed of thick, sturdy, heavy leather. Unlined - what you see on the inside is the other side of the shiny outer leather.
*Thin leather or leather like lining 2/3 of the insole.
*Classic sewn outer heel welt and side "beef roll" stitching.
*Thick leather soles.
*Heavy duty rubber or rubber-like heel - stamped "Florsheim".
*Makers style numbers and size "9 1/2 D" stamped on the inside leather.
Very good vintage condition, and gently worn. There is some expected wear and scuffing to the original maroon colored leather sole, a bit of wear to the rubber heel, and some minor scuffs and creasing on the upper leather that gives it vintage charm.
Only one original "M" remains of the gold "FLORSHEIM lettering of the synthetic insole of the left shoe, but the ghost "FLORSHEIM" stamp remains in both insoles.
For the most part, the outer leather is in great shape with a few minor water marks on the tops. No holes, tears, scrapes, stains, fading, or unpleasant odors. I've only given these a light dusting, but they'll clean up beautifully with a bit of uncolored polish and a light buffing.
