Product Details

The Ludlow shoe is our version of a bench-made dress shoe, and it's constructed using many of the same methods as the world's best shoemakers. We selected some of the finest leathers from tanneries in Italy and built them with a Goodyear welt, which means you can resole them again and again—so they'll last a lifetime. To ensure they retain their shape, the insole contains a steel shank, which sounds uncomfortable but it's encased in a soft layer of cork with a Poron footpad on top, which is designer talk for really comfortable. And as if all that wasn't enough, they're hand sewn too.

  • Italian calf upper from Italy.
  • Full-grain leather lining from Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
  • Leather sole.
  • Goodyear welt construction.
  • Full leather stacked heel.
  • Import.
  • Due to the nature of the leather and authentic design, we recommend sizing up a half size.

Ludlow penny loafers

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Look great, feel pretty bad Unfortunately, these look just as I had hoped but are entirely too uncomfortable to keep. They run small. The toe area is so tight that, combined with the stiff sole, it's not even comfortable to walk across the room when wearing my normal size. If you look under the tongue, they're made in China. I would have hoped for Italy for something from JCrew at this price. Rather disappointing. July 31, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very stylish, but very uncomfortable... I bought these shoes because they are very stylish, but they are so, so uncomfortable to wear. The shoes are true to size, but there's something with the heel and toe area that make these shoes almost impossible to walk in. March 9, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dapper Toe bed is tight. Can get uncomfortable after 8 hour workday. Overall quality is decent, but pricing is a bit much for a shoe made in China. I also expected the shoe to be made in Italy or USA and the soles to be hard. August 4, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Slippery Shoes I found these to run about 1/2 size smaller than my normal size. The style and quality are great. My only complaint, there is virtually no traction on these shoes. It is as if I am walking on ice, even on carpet. October 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by J Crew loafers I like the shoes. However, they are true to size. They are hard. Not comfortable. They are not as good as Fratelli Rosetti you had 6 months to. Year ago. July 6, 2014
