Details about Number 459

The penny loafer is probably the best-known type of men’s slip-on shoe in the world. Originally developed in America at the turn of the 20th century, this comfortable slip-on shoe was first worn by college students. Their special way of wearing it led to the shoe’s name; before important exams, students would stick a lucky penny into the leather strap running across the instep. Goodyear-welted and handcrafted from premium leather, No. 459 is a luxe collector’s item.

Extraordinary penny loafer in burgundy shell cordovan


No. 459 features a U-shaped shaft insert and an upper made from premium shell cordovan, fully-dyed burgundy and sourced from Chicago’s famous Horween tannery. This extremely durably luxury leather is taken from the rear quarters of the horse. It is virtually impervious to creasing, and quickly recovers from small scratches. Shell cordovan is also known for its ability to repel moisture. On this model, the durable shell cordovan upper is perfectly complemented by a leather Rendenbach sole.

The penny loafer is traditionally considered a casual summer shoe. This Goodyear-welted, full-leather penny loafer in burgundy impresses with its premium cordovan upper and an overall elegant appearance. While No. 459 looks wonderful with a suit, its burgundy upper also works well with jeans and light summer fabrics in blue, grey, and brown.

Loafer

Loafer

These comfortable slip-on shoes were invented at the turn of the 20th century and are considered offshoots of moccasins. Like the moccasin, its shaft extends along the bottom of the foot and is sealed at the top with a vamp insert. Unlike the moccasin, the loafer features an additional outsole and heel.

Norwegian Last

Norwegian Last

This type of last is known for its solidity. It projects further upward than the lasts used to make Oxfords and Derby shoes—as such, it is less delicate in appearance. Shoes made with a Norwegian last are an excellent choice for those with a strong build and high insteps.

Shell Cordovan

Shell Cordovan

The demand for this premium equine leather is much higher than the available supply. Fully-dyed and smooth as glass, shell cordovan becomes even more supple with age. It is virtually scuffproof and highly water-repellent. It can take up to six months to produce.

Rendenbach Sole

Rendenbach Sole

For the past 140 years, the traditional Rendenbach tannery has used oak bark tanning to produce leather soles—the process can take up to nine months. The resulting soles are prized worldwide for their durability and water repellency.

General information about our exotic shoe collection

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.

Breathable

Breathable

This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.

Delivery Content

Of course, our focus is on your new pair of shoes. But to underline our passion for our products, we enclose a few extras in your shipment. We hope that sparks your excitement about your new footwear.

Delivery
Shoebox

Shoebox

Our passion for our products is reflected in their packaging. All of our shoes come in an elegant black shoebox emblazoned with the SHOEPASSION.com logo. Said shoebox is easy to open, thanks to a special opening on the side, and comes with a note on our philosophy.

Spare Shoe Laces

Spare Shoe Laces

Should you find yourself in need of new shoelaces, look no further: this pair of Goodyear-welted shoes comes with a spare pair of shoelaces. Made of 100% cotton and treated with wax, these shoelaces are of the very best quality.

Shoe Bag

Shoe Bag

These shoes come stored inside two shoe bags, packed into a shoebox. Shoe bags are a great way to maintain their condition—they protect your footwear from soiling and scratching. They also let you transport your shoes in style.

Shoe Care Guide

Shoe Care Guide

Goodyear-welted shoes last far longer than mass-produced models. A dedicated cleaning and care routine is an indispensable part of keeping your shoes in mint condition. An introductory guide to shoe care is included with your order.

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.

Values
EU

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.
