Loafers for women are timeless and never go out of style. This versatile shoe classic can be worn with various outfits, including trousers, workwear, jeans, tees, dresses, and skirts, making them very practical and a must-have.
It’s recommended to invest in high-quality loafers, from driving moccasins and Penny loafers to nostalgic 90s and ’00s looks with lug soles or heeled versions. Luxury leather shoes with minimalist designs are also worth a treasured place in your collection. Backless silhouettes, with elegant metal or large metal accents, are also popular.
Classic Penny Loafers
The Penny loafer, created in the 1930s by American shoemaker G.H. Bass, was a popular slip-on leather shoe in Norway. Originating from Aurland, these shoes were comfortable and versatile. The shoe’s name was derived from its design, which allowed for a small split strap to hold a penny.
