our new dress shoes are the perfect foundation for Ludlow suits, chinos or denim. We start with thick Italian leather insoles, a cork-bed filler that molds to your foot for a custom fit and a Goodyear welt, so you can resole them again and again. The calf suede in our shoes comes from C.F. Stead, a tannery in Leeds that's been perfecting its processes since the early 1900s, finding the perfect balance between rich color and durability. The penny loafer was first in high demand with college students in the 1930s (it fit the two cents needed for a phone call). It's one of the few shoes that can be worn with almost anything, from shorts to a suit.
