Last month Allen Edmonds released a new penny loafer called the Patriot. Says the company, “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.”

AE designed a new last, called the 606, for the Patriot, which is “roomier in the forefoot but also featuring our trademark narrow heel (perfect for those who forego socks), this last has helped us create our best-fitting penny loafer ever. The consummate country club shoe, the Patriot is sure to become our next American classic.”

Here are more of the specs, on the Patriot, which is priced at $335:

• Moc-toe penny loafer with hand stitch vamp
• Lined premium custom and burnished calfskin leather
• Single oak leather sole with V-tread top lift
• 360 degree Goodyear welted construction
• This shoe is eligible for our full Recrafting service
• Proudly made in the USA at our Port Washington, Wisconsin factory
• This shoe style is also available with our V-tread Tap Sole or in Genuine Horween® Shell Cordovan

The Patriot is currently available in brown and black, with cordovan options coming soon. — CC
