The Hardworking Loafer

Tommy Bahama Havana loafers

After recently walking miles and miles on hard city sidewalks, Izzy learned the hard way that even the best-made dress shoes are not made for long-distance travel.  Wanting  a shoe that felt and performed like a sneaker but looked somewhat dressy, he was please to discover these comfortable brown suede loafers from Tommy Bahama.  The rubber sole is generously thick, without looking so, and more important, the shoe has only a small heel.


  1. I can’t do distance in loafers. Anything I can slip on won’t fit well enough to give me proper support over the long haul. I need something that laces.

    The key for me is finding the right combination of cushioning and support. Right now Timberland Stormbucks seem to be giving it to me, but your mileage may vary.

  2. Really, Izzy! Chinese made kicks from a mass marketer of the first order? One that combines the very worst characteristics of the sometimes amusing worlds of Mr. Hilfiger and Mr. Buffet? Jimmy, not Warren.

    My Donald J. Pliners, not made in China, are blushing that these Thom McCan lookalikes merit mention in your space. My Prada would blush if I had any.
