    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 3.6 out of 5 by 22.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to Love These I own 7 pairs of Allen Edmonds. This has been my favorite pair, but unfortunately after just 4 months, the rubber sole is coming apart at the heel on both shoes. Very disappointing. I expected much better quality from a shoe named “Nomad” and from Allen Edmonds.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ordered one size too narrow, thinking they would it okay. Wrong. I have 8 or 10 pairs of A-E shoes, both 11-D and 11-E. I bought 11-D loafers because they were on sale and I thought the width would be okay. Unfortunately, they are very tight on my feet / uncomfortable. I should have paid more and gotten the wider size. I now realize that my 11-D's that are comfortable are lace-ups, which can be tied loosely to be more comfortable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for business casual. The shoe looks better in browns than in black. It is a casual, business casual shoe. In my opinion it is not the quality of other AE loafers and does not dress up to a suit. It is comfortable though and needed only a slight break in period. I also think it is a good value, especially at the sale price.

    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.
