Unlined Traveler Penny Black Marbled Shell Cordovan


Introducing our first Unlined Traveler Penny Loafer in a beautiful Black Marbled Shell. The unlined vamp creates a more forgiving feel and will develop beautiful rolls as you break them in. 

Horween produces Black Marbled Shell Cordovan by applying several layers of black dye onto vegetable-tanned shells and then scraping off layers of the finish to produce its marbled effect. The end result is a field of obsidian with veins and speckles of rich amber and verdigris.

Each shell is a sedimentary-like layering of blacks, honey, and sometimes green. Like a marble slab, bronze and emerald striations cut through at varying angles.

Due to the hand-processed nature of creating the marbled effect, color variation is expected. The pattern and shade will not match the photo sample. Some pairs will be amber-heavy, others green. Color variation between panels is also common and considered acceptable. This shell is the antithesis of a cookie-cutter leather.

Note: Pre-orders cannot be canceled, refunded, or exchanged.

Unlined Traveler Penny Black Marbled Shell Cordovan


Made with

Goodyear-welt Construction

Renowned for its durability and ability to be resoled repeatedly, Goodyear-welt construction involves stitching a welt—a strip of leather or rubber—around the shoe's perimeter, creating a cavity. After filling the cavity with the shank and cork, the sole is attached, providing strength and water resistance. This construction method results in shoes that are not only long-lasting but also easily repairable, making them a timeless investment in quality craftsmanship.

Utilizing the

Alexander Last

Explicitly designed for loafers, the Alexander Last features the classic contours and higher sidewalls of a rounded casual-comfort loafer compared to its dressier counterparts. The Alexander Last offers a sleek profile while maintaining a generous toe box, allowing your forefoot generous amounts of room.
