STYLISH ITALIAN LOAFERS IN 100% LEATHER – VINTAGE?

True vintage or retro? It’s not easy to tell with shoes from European makers. The styles are so classic and the construction methods so traditional that they still look like the beautiful footwear we used to see in North America before marketing and cost-cutting robbed them of their elegance and high quality.

Whether these were made in the Sixties, the Eighties or 5 years ago, they were too good to pass by. The value, of course, is that I can have them repaired as needed for as long as I want to wear them.

That’s it for my most recent treasure hunt but now that I’m on dry land again, you just never know . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

MORE SIXTIES – STYLE SOUVENIRS – BASS WEEJUNS LEATHER PENNY LOAFERS

This super-fun summer version of the classic Weejuns is still true vintage but a more recent incarnation – made in the 1980’s or 1990’s, sometime before 1993.  As we would expect, they are completely of leather excepting for some parts of the insoles.  So, that means that they can be repaired forever when some wear appears.

Completely classic.  How could I resist?
