DeSoto - Slip-on Penny Saddle Loafer Men's Casual Shoes by Allen Edmonds

  • Leather sole men's slip-on loafer casual shoes
  • Handsewn penny saddle slip-on
  • Unlined, unstructured
  • Toasted edge and rubber heel
  • Handsewn construction (learn about our 212 steps of Craftsmanship)
  • Manufactured on the Handsewn 2592 Last (learn all about lasts)
  • Made in the Dominican Republic

Hernando de DeSoto is considered to be the first European to cross the Mississippi River, making him one the leaders in a long line of travelers who came to America and had their lives transformed by the New World. Similarly, this slip-on's classic Venetian silhouette and lightweight, single leather sole have traveled all the way from the Italian Riviera, where it wears perfectly with shorts or linens?and no socks. The addition of an American-style penny saddle gives this handsewn just the right amount of traditional stature that pairs nicely with the unlined, supple leather construction to create a shoe that will change not only how you casually dress but also just might change how you see the world.

Thank you for your interest in Allen Edmonds.

The DeSoto WebGem is manufactured on the 2592 last which is a rounded, fuller toe handsewn style that can accommodate a fuller, foam sock liner and heel-to-toe padding. By selecting shoes manufactured on the same last that most resembles the contours of one’s feet, customers will achieve a superior fit. However, each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape.

The best way to get a proper fit is to visit a master fitter in one of our retail stores. If this is not possible, keep in mind that products purchased on allenedmonds.com may be returned at any time, as long as the item is unused, accompanied by the packing slip and are part of our current catalog; WebGem styles may be returned however due to the limited production they may not be able to be exchanged. Trying the shoes on a carpeted surface will help prevent scuffing on the sole and keep the shoe in returnable condition.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

How does the Desoto compare with those? Especially in the heel. Since I can't try them on or return them, I would like an idea before I buy.

The DeSoto WebGem is manufactured on the 2592 last which is a rounded, fuller toe handsewn style that can accommodate a fuller, foam sock liner and heel-to-toe padding. The 65 Last which is the longest in length of all of our lasts is best for a long, narrow look. The 97 last it is one of Allen Edmonds early lasts; it is the best fit for the average foot and has a soft, slightly pointed toe. By selecting shoes manufactured on the same last that most resembles the contours of one’s feet, customers will achieve a superior fit. However, each style can fit differently based on individual foot shape.
