  1. I think it’s always okay to own multiple pairs of shoes. One can never have too many options!

    That said, penny loafers are acceptable up to the higher end of “business casual,” and not much further. You can wear them with a suit, but not with your best suit when you appear in court or make a big presentation or the like.

    Loafers are meant to be a more relaxed style than their lace-up cousins. Wear them when it’s all right to be a little relaxed, but not when you’re doing important business.

  2. Do you suggest any brands there are so many of them out there.what do you suggest a durable loafer shoe brand?Especially people with chronic foot disorder. Should the shoe have leather or rubber or it doesn’t matter? What do you think?
