    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Nomad Penny Loafer is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Travelling Business/Casual Shoe I travel by air weekly for work. Being slightly more roomy, these shoes remain comfortable when one’s feet swell as a result of air travel. In addition, because the style can dress up or down, I need not pack an extra pair of leather shoes (just a pair of sneakers). Ergo, I am extremely pleased with this purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very nice loafer I normally wear a size 10 running shoe and have a pair of size 10 AE Fifth Aves. I also have a size 9.5 AE Nomad Chelsea boot. I ordered a size 9 of these Nomad Penny Loafers and they fit snug. Especially my bigger (left) foot. It took a few weeks to break these in by wearing them for a few hours every other day or so, and longer at other times, but now (a few months later) they are quite comfortable. These are very well made, quality loafers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, well built loafer I got a pair of these as factory seconds, no regrets at all. Shoes were surprisingly comfortable right out of the box - Fit was true to form (I wear 13 Bs), with a little extra room in the width which may just be a result of the loose style of shoe. A lot of cushion in the foot bed, and the rubber sole is well done, but maybe not as nice as the dainite soles used on some other styles. For something that I would plan to wear as an every day shoe, I appreciate how the rubber will likely hold up and provide added traction while walking.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from nice shoe - bad fit This is a nice looking shoe but it runs slightly small. This is the second loafer I’ve purchased from AE - both ran smaller and narrower than other styles.

    Anybody know if these have a metal shank in the soul?

    I work at a facility that requires me to pass through metal detectors several times each day. Having to remove your shoes, especially a loafer, doesn’t sound like it’s a big deal, but NOT having to is a huge time saver on busy days...
    Asked by: Brian
    No, the Nomad Penny Loafer does not feature a metal shank.
