“ALMALFI” Made in Italy – original photo of platinum-colored leather penny loafers I have to say I’m sentimental about the penny. After all, that’s where wishes and dreams came from; if you found a penny on the street (heads up) it was lucky. I would throw pennies for other children to find so that their day would be a little bit happier. What about the penny loafer? Has anyone thought about that? Putting in a nickel, just would not be the same. Here’s for nostalgia and the good old days. Keep the penny, and give us a great big smile.
