I have three black loafers headed my way. Assuming they’re equally comfortable, I’ll have to decide which are the keepers based on other variables. I like each of them for different reasons. I’m a big fan of a lug sole which put the VLogo from Valentino in the running. It’s definitely the sportiest of the three. The details on the boyfriend style from The Row are well thought out and so good. Subtle, yet unique and eye catching. That gathered toe box is fantastic and the sole is completely flat which adds additional interest. The slim styled, square toed Gucci will be a forever classic, but is it special? Do I want to add another horsebit (shoe or bag) to my wardrobe? The slightly elevated heel makes it the most feminine option of the above though.
All three styles would work equally well with the looks I wear most – jeans, dresses and trousers. Socks optional. I’ll circle back when they’ve all arrived.
