When it comes to classic style, maybe no other item rules the roost as much as leather loafers. Look back to photos of ’60s style icon and ultimate first lady Jackie Kennedy-Onassis and you will find her sporting a pair of these stylish soles.
It’s a look that never goes out of style. One reason for its enduring status is comfort. No other shoe offers up as potent a combination of good looks and good feel.
Today, the loafer is as popular as ever. You find em in every colorway and material. Some have even turned up as mules.
Take a look at my top picks for style, comfort, and price.
