      Mom said she always kept a dime in her "penny loafers." That little act of rebellion led me to great lengths of inspiration. I begged for koafers, found them in oxblood color and then proudly changed my coinage in my shoes upon every whim. I remember getting a roll of new pennies at the bank so I could share with my friends. Identical shoe adornments. What a sweet life.

      I remember mine! Penny loafers became very popular with young people in America in 1950s and 60s. At that time, pennies were inserted into the cut-out for decoration, and perhaps as a lucky charm.

      Penny loafers. The good thing about these shoes were you could upgrade by putting in dimes, nickles, quarters, etc. as the economy changed. My father liked that I would always have money for a pay phone, if I needed it.

    penny loafers The fad was to use a penny from the year you were born in the little slot. I wore mine until the soles gave out. Then my Uncle Benny Throm resoled them in his shoe shop and I wore them until I couldn't get my feet in them anymore!

    in the early 1950s programs were started to issue dog-tags to children. There was concern that in the event of a surprise atomic attack it would be difficult to identify the millions of children killed while at school.~
