Patriot Cordovan Loafer. Why It’s Great Is there anything more all-American than the penny loafer? How about one made right here in the U.S.A.? We didn’t think so. That’s why we named this new model the Patriot. A faithful interpretation of this timeless design, the Patriot honors our legacy of craftsmanship and classic American style like no other shoe on the market. The consummate country club shoe, the Patriot is sure to become our next American classic. How It’s Made We designed a brand new last – the 606 – especially for these shoes. Roomier in the forefoot but also featuring our trademark narrow heel (perfect for those who forgo socks), this last has helped us create our best fitting penny loafer ever. As if that’s not enough, the Patriot is also featured in Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan leather with an exclusive black, burgundy, and brown finish burnished to rich perfection. How to Wear It Penny loafers are one of the most versatile shoe styles. The Patriot is made with none other than the highest quality Cordovan leather, and while these formal shoes are best worn with more formal attire, they can even be paired with jeans and khakis.
