Article: James Penny Loafer Pre-order

James Penny Loafer Pre-order

In 2024, we will expand our offerings even further with more stock, creative GMTO’s and exclusive fully handmade 1202 Heritage Collection shoes.

In addition, starting this year we will be giving you the opportunity to pre-order new models that we are producing for stock. This offer helps us to crowd source the production of new make-ups and as a reward to our customers who participate, the pre-order is bundled with lasted shoe trees at a competitive price.

This new pre-order opportunity is perfect for those who have a hard time securing their size and who like to reward themselves by planning ahead. This offering also helps us improve our product planning, balance the supply vs demand of stock and ensure that we make batches of models and make-ups that you really want.

For our first pre-order, we are kicking things off with our spectacular James Penny Loafer in a classic onyx handmade patina.

James is our signature penny loafer featuring an upper in supple French box calf from Tanneries du Puy, a soft square chiseled toe, gimping adorning the seams, a comfortable quilted and padded insole, and our hand painted leather sole.

The handsome loafer sports an elongated vamp, our signature asymmetric pattern with no center back seam, and a penny keeper that naturally glides across the vamp.

We started off the pre-sale with a conservative color that will match everything, and let the design and shape of these beautiful loafers do the talking.

Every Goodyear-welted pair of our James Penny Loafers are meticulously hand-finished by our team of artisans in Barcelona, Spain before delivery. Each pair of our pre-order includes our lasted shoe trees, an essential component to keeping your shoes in good shape and well maintained for many years to come.

Join our first Norman Vilalta Pre-order of the year and enjoy this limited bundle offer through Tuesday, January 30th.
