Penney loafers

A likely Lehmann’s term:

I had saddle shoes, too. I thought mine were special. I loved them. I always wanted a pair of Red Ball Jets, but I never got them. ¶ July 24 at 3:46pm · Like · 1 [name] You weren’t the only one wearing those shoes. We had to wear them as well and I always wanted the Penney Loafers.

Visit eBay for great deals on a huge selection penney loafers.

The connection to a penny is less than obvious, and Penney’s did sell them (as did Sears and every other store worth its shoe leather, of course.)

Re: Penney loafers

It would be hard to prove that “penney loafer” wasn’t just a misspelling. See how many web examples there are of copper penney.

Re: Penney loafers

Agreed. We need a perp’s confession. (Capitalization may be some indication, when it occurs.)
