    Usually Bass Weejun or Florsheim Penny Loafers I believe...

    Florsheim and Sebago, maybe some other brands too.
    Florsheim https://www.amazon.com/Florsheim-Men...ords=florsheim

    And another Florsheim. Here is a link if you want to buy the exact same model. https://www.amazon.com/Florsheim-Men...ords=florsheim

    He had two different models for stage performances! I have a pair of como's myself they're from florsheim.. The history tour pair I believe was the "como imperial" damn good quality and they look great even on classic jeans or some black trousers! I think every man should own a pair of those

    Michael Bush said they were Florsheim loafers, the only shoes MJ could dance in as he wore them since he was a kid. Love the story about Michael watching James Brown dance in his patent leather shoes and telling himself he'd have a pair one day.

    Michael Jackson would wear Florsheim Shoes to dance in. He wore the models Como and Como Imperial and had leather heels installed.

    “He taught himself to dance in Florsheims. They were comfortable and were what he had worn as a child star,” Bush explained"
