How to Buy Loafers

When purchasing women's leather loafers, consider these important factors:

  1. Upper & Lining Materials: Opt for genuine leather for durability and quality. Make sure that the leather is not too stiff, as this will cause blisters and will be difficult to break into. The leather should be soft while still holding the loafer's shape.
  2. Fit: Ensure a snug yet comfortable fit, as leather molds to your feet over time.
  3. Style: Choose from classic penny loafers or modern variations to match your style. Typically, loafers with slimmer leather soles and an elegant welt/randing have stood the test of time - compared to chunky-soled loafers.
