    @Tat:


    The first pair has some noticeable wear in the soles, but it's got really thick soles so I expect it has plenty of wear left in it. Not familiar with the brand, but the uppers looks good, and the price is still nice for shell cordovan.


    I like everything about the second pair. Just plain ol' great shoes, IMO.


    The third pair is a little too Italian for my taste. The squared, chiseled toe is a bit much for me. That's just a matter of opinion, though. For the right price, I'd probably still take them. Otherwise, the uppers look brand new. If you like the shape, it's a winner.


    The marks on the soles on the 4th pair seem to be more than just scuffs. Looks like they may have been subjected to some weather. I think it would be hard to say whether or not that has affected the sole's integrity without seeing them in person, though.


    The 5th pair seems cool (and I like the color), but I think the plain toe and the color combined will show the "breaking in" more readily. Can't say for sure, though. Unless I were in the market for several pairs, I like the first cuople more.


    EDIT: I'm looking at the 4th pair again. May not be weather damage after all. Might just be that he walked on something very dirty the last time he wore them and the dirt didn't make it to the edge of the scuff marks (giving it a two-tone, bled effect).

    I have always viewed penny loafers as "old man shoes", but I had been pep-talked into it by someone on another forum. Plus seeing some WIWT's, they really do seem to work.

    FWIW, the way the strap goes all the way around instead of just across the top seems to make the whole thing "younger" in my eyes. I really can't explain why.

    Thats actually what drew me to them (along with the colour). I tend to wear brighter colours, and I think I could put those to a bit more use than a darker mroe traditional pair.
