Wondering if anyone knows of a Penny Loafer that has a longer construction.

By which I mean, less opening around the foot, covers more of the foot, more length on the top.

If anyone knows of a loafer that fits that description, please let me know.

Thanks a lot.

What is your price range? You've described many shoes here. Ferragamo makes many models of loafer with a long vamp and longish toe, as does Santoni, C&J, anybody really. How much do you want to spend, how important is solid construction?

We'll the less expensive the better, but it all depends what is available out there and how it fits what I am looking for.

Would guess a willing price at or below $200.

I like the Sebago classics, which seem to have pretty long vamps. I have wide feet and somewhat narrow heels, so my heels don't stay in a lot of loafers. The Sebagos work pretty well for me. They do come in a variety of widths, so you should be able to find something that fits well. They are usually about $100.

And, yes, the leather is a bit plastic-like. But, I like the fit and the proportions, in that the leather soles are fairly thick and they are fairly 'clunky' for a pair of loafers. They look like a pair of men's shoes, whereas some of the more elegant loafers look more like women's shoes to me.

I have one pair of AE loafers that I don't like. The vamp is too short for me, and they really don't fit the shape of my foot very well. Of course, the leather is a lot nicer on the AEs than on the Sebagos.

Alden or some other AE loafers might work as well.
