Penny Loafer - One Of The World's Iconic Shoes

The Penny Loafer is a familiar and beloved footwear style worldwide because of its convenience, fashion appeal, and history intertwined with the Golden Age of popular culture. Let's explore the story of Penny Loafer with Pierre Cardin Paris Vietnam!


1 - The Founded Blend Of Penny Loafers Art And Commerce

After the Loafer Shoes were introduced by the British Royal Family of the 19th century, these slip-on shoes went across the Atlantic to the United States. In the 1930s, G.H. Bass & Co. introduced the Loafer style with a decorative detail resembling a "lip" on the shoe's strap. This style quickly attracted and positively gained favor among young people, especially Ivy League students (the top American universities).

In the 1950s, University students began using the open-lacing design on the shoe to store loose change - a safe and convenient way to access their coins when needed. This tradition symbolized "modern, practical, and nimble" American students. Hence, it was named the coin - the Penny Loafer. The Penny Loafer is a perfect blend of flexibility and fashion, indicating its influence extended beyond the university campuses.


2 - From Elvis Presley To Michael Jackson, The Weeknd, and More

In 1955, Hollywood legend James Dean performed Penny Loafers in movies "Rebel Without a Cause" and "East of Eden." James Dean's youthful, sophisticated, mix with rebellious style in these slip-on shoes captivated the world. Besides James Dean, Elvis Presley - one of the most famous rock musicians in history - also considered Penny Loafers an essential part of his performances and personal style.

In the 1980s, the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson, made Penny Loafers a cultural icon. He wore Penny Loafers with white socks featuring an altered design to execute the legendary Moonwalk dance move. Additionally, Penny Loafers also appeared on the world stage, notably the Dangerous World Tour (with 3.9 million audiences), music videos like "Billie Jean," and magazine covers. Michael Jackson played a significant role in popularizing Penny Loafers to the public, and even today, his white Penny Loafers remain highly regarded.

Nevertheless, if just focusing on its convenience and fashion, Penny Loafers might have faded into fashion history. U.S. President John F. Kennedy proved that Penny Loafers are genuinely "elegant and sophisticated" for Gentlemen. The President wore Penny Loafers with suits and even in casual attire.
