    Comments about Johnston & Murphy SKI-MOC� PENNY:

    Having a narrow foot (B) it is always a challenge finding a loafer that I can wear comfortably without feeling as though my feet are going to slip out at any moment. I was very please with the snug fit when the shoes arrived in the mail. Good fit, good look, versatile in that I can wear them as casual shoes at work or going out with a pair of jeans.

    Unfortunately after about six months of owning the shoes they have started to squeak when walking. Not an attribute I am looking for in a shoe. Its loud enough that I can't walk through the office without heads turning to see what the racket is all about.

    Very disappointed. I have purchased many pairs of J&M shoes over the years and for the most part I have been very please, however the last few years the quality seems to be slipping and I have now moved on to AE shoes and others.

    I would think twice before buying another pair of J&M until the quality gets back to what J&M was known for years ago.

    Same great shoe it was 20 or more years ago. Classic styling and a fit that only gets better with wear. I wear them to the office on business casual days, to church with a sport coat and just out knocking around with jeans. Tthanks for keeping the style and quality over the years.

    Comments about Johnston & Murphy SKI-MOC� PENNY:

    I've been wearing Ski-Moc (Penny) for over 25 years. This is the first time in 25 years that I've had to return them due to J&M being unable to get me into the right size. 3 different pairs were shipped (size 12D) and all 3 pairs had terrible heel slip. When trying on a half size smaller, they were just too tight. I believe it's only an issue with the Penny because I also purchased the same size Ski-Moc Tassel and they fit perfectly. They suggested an insert but I declined. I've never needed an insert in over 25 years and didn't feel right having to start using one now. Customer service at J&M store was great however in the end they weren't able to get me into the right size.

      I had been searching for the perfect traditional American penny loafer, and the Ski Moc nails it. They're well made, have the perfectly shaped toe, and have that rich, gutsy look that's goes great with dress flannels, jeans, and everything between. They're my most favorite shoe purchase in years.

        Moccasin-style shoes have always worked best for me. These were recommended by my brother, who travels the world and meets with heads of government globally, as the universal shoe for every need. Compared them with other moccasin-style dress slip-ons and these have the best blend of hand-crafted workmanship, simplicity, clean and understated lines that I found. Comfortable from first fitting. Work for finest dress, casual going out.

        Thank you.

          This is my 4th pair. I've worn these nearly daily for more than 15 years. They wear great, are easily repaired - heals and soles, and shine beautifully. They are great while going through airport security, too.

              • Q:

                I have two new pairs of SKI-MOC PENNY loafers and both of them are making noises when I walk. It sounds as if the material is grinding against each other with a high pitch, squeek on each step. I bought the shoes at the airport in Minneapolis in September and have used the shoes only inside. What can I do?

                I have had a pair of the Ski-Moc Penny for over a year. Very seldom wear them because when I do they squeak when I walk. I don't know how or if it is possible to correct. I would like to be able to wear this shoe, and it has kept me from buying any further shoes from Johnston & Murphy. I have always found them to be a good shoe in the past.

                  There are remedies for fixing squeaky shoes with baby powder, hand lotion and super glue, but with this quality shoe, you need to talk with a J&M representative, they can give you the best answer. You wouldn't want to ruin the shoes in trying to fix them. Call (800) 424-2854 to speak with a representative.

              • Q:

                Hi I recently ordered a size 14 in the Pannell Penny and it was a bit too big. Are the sizes the same in both the Pannell Penny and the Ski-Moc Penny, or do they differ in some way?
                And what is the difference in the quality between the two?
                Is C width a middle ground between the normal D width and the narrow B width?
                Thanks a bunch.

                  Both the Pannell Penny and the Ski-Moc Penny will have a similar fit due to the handsewn moccasin style toe, however, the Ski-Moc does feature a genuine Goodyear Welt and leather sole making it a higher quality shoe. The C Width is between a B and D.

                Hello:

                I received a pair of ski-moc penny (burgundy calf) on December. I have not used them a lot but one of the top parts is breaking. I live in Mexico City and I cannot ship it to you as it will not go thru customs.
                Would you please let me know if there is something you can do for me or suggest what can I do locally.
                If you provide me with an email I could send you a picture of them and the damaged part.

                  I believe you mean "Aristocraft", which is a line of J&M shoes. Currently, however, J&M is no longer carrying a Ski-Moc Penny in their Aristocraft line. I presume you are seeing some from a retailer who still has stock. I see no differences in material or craftsmanship.

                I do not wear loafers because they tend to slip off the back of my heel. I have been told that a loafer with a narrow heel would prevent the slippage. Is this correct? Is the Ski-Moc built on a last with a narrow heel?

                  A:

                  The width of the heel is based on the width of the toe box. The heel of the Ski-Moc Penny will be two widths more narrow than that of the toe box. For example, a D width in the toe will always have a B width in the heel.
