The Bourke Penny Loafer exudes a wealth of heritage and class. Bourke Street is Melbourne's leading thoroughfare and popular main street. The discovery of gold in the 1850s turned Melbourne into one of the wealthiest cities in the British Empire, second only to London, and in doing so turned a once-sleepy city into a major artery of world-class arcades, trade and politics. This prosperous heritage is still visible today through the preservation of much of 20th century Victorian architecture and our Penny Loafer in brown calf is an inspired tribute.
The Bourke Penny Loafer is a must-have for the discerning Australian gentleman. It features beautiful French calf leather and full leather lining, which is important if you prefer wearing your loafers sock-less. The last (or mould) features a traditional rounded toe with high wall and fits true to size. The labour-intensive Goodyear welted construction and cork footbed will ensure comfort and longevity for years to come. You may find our Bourke on Melbourne's Bourke, accompanied by jeans, a suit, a sizzling loafer/blazer combo, even shorts - such is its versatility.
