remember when we used to rock: penny loafers.

what was the year? i know it was elementary school but can't recall when i got my first pair. from what i remember the only thing that really excited me about them is putting the pennies in them. other than that, i remember them being very hard. but they were the style. and in style i wanted to be.
i did some googling today and found out that they were first created in america in the 1930s but were made famous by the stars of the 60s. any idea where the penny concept came from? it's said that in the 30s during the depression students would put a penny in their shoes for good luck. i know you always wanted to know that. lol
