Although new shoes are always being designed and worn, there are a couple of styles that have been around long enough to be instantly recognized. Loafers are one of those styles. A low-cut shoe usually made out of leather with no laces, this design just might be the ultimate when it comes to simple, comfortable footwear that is a good match for any kind of casual clothing. Sperry loafers are a great wardrobe addition for people who want to look and feel good in whatever they wear.
Top-sider shoes, also called boat shoes, are a comfortable slip-on design that can go from laid-back to semi-formal depending on styling add-ons like tassels and stitching detail. A padded collar can help prevent irritation at the back of the heel and a non-marking rubber sole with good traction can help make the shoe more versatile. Some designs include a removable footbed and a lined upper.
Want a loafer that can go from work to weekend activities without a hitch? Try a pair of leather loafers with a moccasin style toe and contrast stitching. Some designs come with a heel cup for extra cushion and a sock lining so they can be worn without socks. If they’ll be used around water, look for a shoe that includes a non-skid rubber outsole with a tread pattern that’s designed to displace water and prevent slipping.
Not all Sperry loafers are made from leather. How about cotton loafers made with a textured upper and a flexible rubber sole? The slip-on styling makes for easy wear and a model that includes a padded collar to prevent heel rub can make them extra comfortable.
Want to own one of the oldest loafer styles around? Try a penny loafer, so called because people used to hide a “lucky coin” beneath a decorative strap placed across the top of the shoe. Look for details that up the comfort level like a sock lining, heel cups and a flexible rubber sole. Penny loafers are a favored style among those who love loafers because they strike a good balance between casual comfort and sophisticated style.
