Summertime essential

Loafers are one of those pairs of shoes that were created to be worn casually. Loafers have developed over the years into something classic and formal, but it’s style still reflects it’s casual origins. Being slip-on makes it easy to put on and off, giving your ankles some breathing room it makes any polished outfit a little more stylish.

You can rock them sockless

Loafers are the ultimate pairs of shoes that look awesome when worn sockless. Going sockless with loafers adds a relaxed, casual vibe to your outfit and not many things can emulate that. But wait, even though you’re giving the look of no-socks, you still need to wear no-show socks.
