The versatility of the Bourke Penny Loafers: wear them to work, to an event, or just a laid-back weekend with friends! Goodyear welt construction and exquisite French Calfskin Leather ensures your Penny Loafers last for years and look better with age.
More than 100 steps go into making each shoe. The Goodyear welt construction method is considered the gold standard in shoemaking: difficult and time-consuming to do, but resulting in an extremely durable shoe whose components are nearly all stitched together and connected via a leather welt. Virtually any component can be replaced over and over again and your shoes will remain out of landfill much, much longer than most of the mass-produced shoes found in Australia.
We work directly with respected shoemakers to offer affordable, well-made footwear. Many of the shoes our craftsmen produce are sold upwards of $600. We keep our overheads much lower than other premium brands but we maintain the same exacting standards in workmanship and materials. The lifetime value of our footwear on a cost-per-wear basis makes them arguably the best value shoes in Australia.
