WCBS 880’s Rich Lamb reports that His Honor says both pairs are black loafers. One pair is penny loafers. The other is loafers with a tassel.

Asked for more about his non-triple-E’s, his honor quipped, “I think, for security reasons, I really cannot talk about my shoes as to whether or not I have backup.”

The mayor has his loafers resoled and re-heeled and declared it’s fair to say he’s not the shoe industry’s best customer.
