This type of shoe is a type of slip-on footwear. Slip-ons
are typically low, lace-less shoes. The style most commonly seen, known as a loafer
or slippers in American culture, has a moccasin construction.
In 1936 U.S. shoemaker G.H. Bass & Co. introduced its
"Weejuns" penny loafers. Other companies followed with similar products. The term
penny loafer has uncertain beginnings. One explanation is when American prep school
students in the 1950s, wishing to make a fashion statement, took to inserting a
penny into the diamond-shaped slit on their Weejuns. Another theory is that two
pennies could be slipped into the slit, enough money to make an emergency phone
call in the 1930s. Either way, the name penny loafer came to be applied to
this style of slip-on and has since stuck. The practice continues, especially among
those who remain committed to a classic and refined but still scholarly appearance,
such as lawyers.
A penny is a coin (plural pennies) or a unit of currency.
