The Armoury Jiro 103195 Bitter Chocolate Broadway Calf Loafers (NOS)
Our shoes are designed in collaboration with Yohei Fukuda, one of the greatest bespoke shoemakers in the world, and are made in Northampton, England where Fukuda once trained. With a low-slung silhouette and sweeping lines, we gave our shoe last a soft, almond toe while widening the ball of the foot to ensure comfort.
The Broadway Plain-toe Loafer is a slipper/loafer hybrid and can serve a variety of purposes. If highly polished the black calf version can be worn as a tuxedo slipper, however it would work well in many other situations, either casually or with grey trousers and a sport coat. Using our Jiro loafer last means that this shoe takes into account those with fallen arches. This makes the shoes immediately more comfortable and allows for less creasing, while keeping with a sleek profile.
Channeled leather sole, Suede models feature an oiled leather sole
Made in Northampton, England
Please Note: Some pairs from this range of new old stock shoes may show light scuff marks on the sole where they have been tried on in-store. All pairs come in original shoe boxes and with shoe bags. Shoe trees not included.
SIZE AND FIT
Our Jiro 次郎 means second son as it is the second last we've designed with Yohei Fukuda. The last has a soft almond toe, fits slightly tighter in the heel, and adds more space in the toe box and forefoot. The last is also very suited to people who have fallen arches.
The Armoury shoes come in UK sizes. To convert US to UK sizing, please subtract 1 size from your normal US size for the right fit. We do not recommend sizing down half a size for this loafer.
