The Grantham 2 is a round-toed penny loafer made in the classic Ivy League style. Worn without socks, it is the perfect summer shoe; yet its generous shape makes it equally comfortable worn with woolen socks when winter comes around. The characteristic slit strap design originated in the 1930s as a stylistic twist on the standard loafer; many people would store a penny in the slit in case they needed to make an emergency phone call. This model has been made from fine calf leather, which gives them a rustic, textured look. It is also made on Crockett & Jones’ new 376 last, which features an improved footbed design and slimmer heel cup for added comfort and security in the heel. The rounded toe lends the shoe exceptional fitting qualities, making it a wonderful day-to-day option. Founded in Northampton in 1879, Crockett & Jones a fifth generation family-owned company. Representing the finest in materials and workmanship, Crockett & Jones’ Goodyear welted shoes are 100% made in England.
