Merge the comfort of the slip-on loafers with the formality to carry them anywhere with these Ribbon loafers from Cobblestone.
Cobblestone is proud to continue the tradition of blending comfort with style. This particular style of Loafers was first developed for King George VI as a casual house shoe. The ribbon was added a little bit later in the history transforming this casual shoe into a semi-formal, and sometimes even formal shoe.
Stand out from the crowd. Perfect for in-house wear, taking a stroll, meeting with friends, visiting with neighbors, and other casual events that do not require the formality yet demand style and elegance. These Cobblestones are made from the highest quality full-grain leather. And as such, these Cobblestones are very tough and resilient.
Full grain leather is the best, toughest kind of leather money can buy. It contains all the layers of the animal's hide, and as such lasts the longest.
The second best quality leathers are called top-grain. The only difference between top-grain and full-grain is that top-grain has a processed top-layer, making it smooth. The downside is that it's not as tough or durable as full-grain, but it is very, VERY close.
Genuine leathers are the weakest. When the toughest top layer of leather is stripped off, what you're left with is "genuine" leather. Genuine leather is significantly weaker, less durable, cheap and abundant. And not quite as valuable.
Cobblestones are handmade shoes. They do not come off a production line. They're not made using machines.
Cobblestones are made by skilled workers who devote their life to learning the delicate art of shoe-making. And it shows.
