After my post yesterday about what I’m shopping for for fall and mentioning that I’d like a pair of black loafers – waiting to see Everlane’s version – (or these Vince “Bogart” flats, which are more like a slipper), reader Virginia asked for recommendations. I don’t HAVE any black loafers yet, so I can’t necessarily speak to comfort levels, but I do have a pair of taupe suede Dieppa Restrepo loafers (last seen here) that I’ve found to be very comfortable, so I would recommend their penny loafers for a good, classic-but-modern black loafer (*2 above).
Other than that, I’ve found and posted some that I love from various places online. If you’re into classic throwbacks, nothing beats the good old Bass weejun, and the tassel loafers, in addition to the penny loafers are 20% off via their site right now. (or this Cole Haan version which is on sale for $109 now, thanks to Jen for her comment about them!)
Also, the Repetto Michael loafers (named after Michael Jackson!) are 20% off right now at Otte with code FALL20. They’re selling out quickly, but they do have suede, black distressed and patent leather versions available. I have always sized up one size in Repetto, but it’s generally recommended to size up at least a half size.
I do love the calf hair loafer by ECCO (number 4) and I imagine they would be comfortable. The Rachel Comey loafer with the perforated leather and bar on top are very cool, and easy (they’re on sale too!). Of course, the Rag & Bone loafer with calf hair inset are very “now,” but quite expensive. I’d wait for a code or for them to go on sale…
I’ve included many more of my favorites below, and I’d love your input as well. Do you have loafers you love that are comfortable and that you can recommend? I do also have a gray pair of Geox “Italy” loafers/moccs that are like walking on clouds…they’re more narrow than I’m used to – haven’t quite gotten accustomed to the style, but they are very comfortable and I intended to wear them for travel. They’re not exactly “stylish”…
