Shopping from ebay: Gokey loafers
Here's an unusual pair of Gokey loafers for women, available via this ebay auction. Gokey is known for their rugged, moccasin-style, handsewn boots for gents. Gokey footwear was originally designed for explorers, hunters and prospectors. Here's a typical Gokey specimen:
I've always aspired to own knee-high Gokey boots. I also covet Tom's garage sale Gokey ankle boots. But since neither style is sized for women, I'm trolling ebay for Gokeys I could actually wear. Since I live in loafers, these Gokeys might fit the bill. Best of all, they were made by the original Gokey company before they were purchased by Orvis.
