    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.

    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Nomad Penny Loafer is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Strong and tight leather I noticed the picture of these shoes in the advertisement booklet that came in the mail last year. I'd better go to any store and try it out before the purchase. But I believed in AE, skipped the step and ordered it directly over the Internet. I was always satisfied with the size of AE's product (9D). Nobody complained about the size too short and hurt toes. So I thought it would be fine. But the leather was considerably tougher than I thought. The leather was thin and hard with no padding cushions. The other part was fine, but the band on the dorsum part was narrow and pressed. I wore these and walked several miles. It made the creaked sound every step. And I can't feel comfortable because it didn't stretch. It wasn't controlled by a shoe tree, so I had to put in an 8oz soda can or a bottle to make wider. Satisfied with the design, color, and finish. The rubber sole is also durable, lightweight and easy to walk. I'm satisfied that tough leather now guarantees durability. It's a pity that I bought a little more than the current sale price. But I can recommend it to anyone at the current price. Go to the store and try it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoe but runs rather narrow Despite the 42N last indication, I found that the shoe ran slightly too narrow. I'm an 8.5D on the Brannock device and the shoe was uncomfortably tight especially at the opening and throat of the shoe. Sent it to a cobbler for stretching and it worked out fine, it's a pity that the shoe isn't offered in 8.5E

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp looking and comfortable! I have been buying Allen Edmonds penny loafers for over a decade and I am always looking for new styles. The Nomad has an appealing look and the best fit of the more than a dozen shoes that I own. My only request is that the Nomad come in a burgundy color.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a glove. Never had a shoe that fitted like a glove until now. Only issue is, they squeak.

    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.
