When it comes to men's footwear, it doesn't get much more classic than penny loafers. There are two competing legends about how these shoes got their name: one, that 1950s American prep school students inserted pennies into the instep straps as a fashion statement; the other, that men kept a penny in each slot in case they need to make a 2-cent emergency call. No matter where they got their name, the fact remains that men's penny loafers have been a style icon for decades. Subtle and versatile, the penny loafer is perfect for virtually any casual outfit, yet the right pair can be coupled with less formal suits and other business wear. Wear them with a t-shirt and chinos or cuffed jeans, and you're ready for a weekend party or an evening with friends.
UGG, ECCO, Cole Haan, and other great brands offer penny loafers for men. These shoes are crafted from gorgeous leather and suede, and of course, they feature a strap across the instep with the essential penny pocket.
