This is the time of year when footwear decisions become tricky – too cool for a sandal, too warm for a boot – it’s time to slip on the iconic loafer, the shoe for all seasons.
Since it first emerged in 1930, the loafer has been worn by men and women and adopted universally. It’s both stylish and versatile, worn by young and old, and is available in a price range to suit every budget.
A close relative of the loafer is the moccasin. Made from soft leather, authentic versions consist of a sole and sides made from one piece and stitched together at the top. Unlike the original loafer, the moccasin has laces. Features generally include fringing, beading and embroidery. Team with a smart jean or chino, and you’re on your way to casual cool. They sure have a cuteness about them.

The loafer is the ‘go to’ shoe for travel. It’s an easy kick off when required at a security check. It will also take a sock to keep you cosy for the flight or the ride. Here’s the shoe that you can walk in, all the way there and back. It’s a shoe with endless possibilities, guaranteed to work overtime in your travel wardrobe.
