If you haven’t already got a pair of loafers in your wardrobe, you’re missing out on the most versatile pair of shoes you’ll ever own. There’s so many ways to wear them, and with the ever-expanding choice of colours, finishes and styles available now you can easily make these shoes work for your own individual style. Read on to find out the different ways you can wear and style these shoes, with 4 ways with loafers.
Simple yet stylish
When most people think of loafers, they think of plain fronted men’s shoes that are simple yet stylish understated footwear. If this is your style, you’ll love the Anatomic Gel Belem made using the famous Anatomic Gel technology for the most comfortable pair of shoes you’ll ever own. Choose from black or tan colour options and then just slip these on and pair with jeans, chinos or relaxed trousers for an office smart-casual look.
Tassel or not to tassel
Loafers don’t just have to be plain though, as these Loake Temple tassel shoes prove. These still have the classic slip on appeal of traditional loafers, but with added tassel details to make them that little bit more sophisticated. Made from premium quality leather, and with an interlaced leather trim they are definitely a cut above the rest. You can pair these with trousers in a shorter length, so that you can really show off all the added details that make these shoes really unique. What’s the point in hiding them under layers of clothes?
High shine leather
Polished leather is a bold look but one that definitely pays off in the style stakes. More commonly associated with formal shoes and dress shoes for very special occasions, high shine leather can nevertheless be used for slip on loafers too to add a contemporary edge to a casual shoe. Check out the Barker Clive which comes in either high shine black or a rich high shine burgundy, and includes elegant details like a tassel and a punched toe design.
Still not sure if these are for you? We have one more trick up our sleeve when it comes to 4 ways with loafers – and that’s the Barker Adrian. These classic slip on shoes for men are a firm customer favourite – and it’s not hard to see why. Expertly crafted using finest quality leathers and with a woven apron at the front of the shoe for a subtle design that’s not totally plain, but not too over the top if you’d prefer to keep things slightly more understated. It’s really the best of both, and available in two colours. Perfect for a big night out on the town.
