Latex is a chemical substance which is used to create rubber. Natural latex is obtained from the sap of certain plants and can be later vulcanized and finished into a variety of products. Latex materials are known to have many applications especially in the footwear industry where they can be used to make shoe insoles and outsoles to add flexibility and extra cushioning.
Loafers or penny loafers are low, leather step-in shoes with tops that resemble moccasins, but have broad flat heels. Loafers have no shoelaces or buckles. Penny loafers are made of leather and are often worn for formal occasions.
Johnston & Murphy Ainsworth Venetian Casual Class

This shoe looks great for casual Friday. It is really comfortable due to the padding in the heal and the arch, and the leather feels soft. The rubber sole is quiet and flexible, but precludes this shoe from being a true "dress" shoe.
Wears this shoe: Fridays and weekends
