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

Ludlow penny loafers is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Patience Pays I bought these shoes the day before my first day of work. They were very uncomfortable at first, so I had to rotate them every other day with an older pair to break them in. But after that, I was stunned. These are extremely comfortable shoes. They have molded to my feet like much more expensive shoes would, but at a J.crew price. I have had walking meetings at work every day for a year and half and these shoes have kept me and my feet very happy. They looked great on day one and barely show the wear I have put on them since. I fluctuate between sizes 12 and 13 - I bought a size 12 in these shoes. I would buy these again without reservation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless I've had my loafers for two years and they still look and feel great ! They where hard to break in (as all good shoes are) but once I did they became some of my most comfortable shoes. LOVE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Shoes Both these and the tassle loafers are great. It may need a little bit of break-in time but other than that, these shoes are great. Modern and versatile. These can be worn with anything from shorts to suits. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shoes for Fall Got this pair of loafers late summer. But the timing could be better: they are prefect for the fall, just sturdy looking enough to sustain the heavier look of woold pants / suits Would recommend them 100%

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice Loafers They break in well, stay comfortable for days. Leather sole a bit sensitive to water etc, as are all good shoes, so rubber taps are a nice modification.
