new weejuns

bass weejuns are some of my all time favorite shoes.  i’m now on my third pair in 10 years.  i’ve worn penny loafers since i was a kid, but didn’t consider them cool until i went to new york my junior of college and 4 out of 10 guys we went to dinner with were wearing some form of penny loafer.  when i returned from my trip, i found a pair of burgundy weejuns on the sale rack at whatever department store is now macy’s.  i believe they were $40 at the time.  now they’ll run you a cool $99 on zappos.  i challenge you to find a better shoe for under $100.
