Bates Bit Loafer

Details

Overview

While supplies last. Limited to the sizes and widths that are currently available online.

Still ruggedly handsome because of natural leather, a sophisticated D-ring keeper gives these slip-ons a dressier profile than its cousin the penny loafer.

Product Care

Allen Edmonds Shoe Care

These types of leathers can be cleaned using a damp cloth to remove dirt and any residue. Follow by using a soft cloth to apply Allen Edmonds Leather Lotion, which has been specifically formulated for this type of leather.

Further details and videos are available on our Caring for Your Shoes page.

Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Surprisingly uncomfortable, do not keep shape The store I visited to buy these did not have my size, but said they could ship them to me from the factory. What I didn't know was that it would take 4 to 5 weeks to get them. I really love the look of these shoes, so I decided to wait for them. The looked great when they arrived, but I have to say they are maybe the most uncomfortable new shoes I have ever bought. After an extended break in period they are better, but still have odd pressure points that are uncomfortable. They also developed creases from day 1 that make them look much older than they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A Great Casual Loafer This is an outstanding casual loafer with a great look. As usual you get the fantastic Allen Edmonds fit and finish. September 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The perfect casual shoe An incredibly comfortable casual shoe with the legendary Allen Edmonds quality. I bought these shoes on line without trying them on. An absolutely perfect fit as usual. Bravo!!!!!!!! September 18, 2015

I have EEEE feet and need a Blucher style rise to fit my foot and the orthotic. The Park Avenue worked OK, but I no longer dress for success; I am retired!

Answer: 
This style was not designed with an orthotic fit in mind and so it does not feature a removable insole. The styles that feature removable insoles are only those that are part of the Orthotic Collection, Jack Nicklaus Collection, and the new Road Warrior Collection.

However, if the shoe is fit large enough, orthotic inserts can be used in almost any of our shoes. It is important to keep in mind that the use of an orthotic will alter the way a shoe fits; we recommend trying on your orthotics with the shoes or visiting one of our master fitters at our retail stores as they can recommend the best possible fit.

Answer: 
Due to the construction methods used on the Bates Loafer, this style is not eligible for custom orders.

The Montello Ribbed tap sole is a combination of leather and rubber. It has a leather sole base, with a rubber piece inset into the sole. It is similar to the V-tread tap sole, but it has a ribbed pattern rather than a "v" pattern.

Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.

Are these shoes recraftable? It doesn't say so in the description, even though these are made at the Wisconsin factory.
