THE ELEVATED LOAFER.

The humble loafer has long been high on my list of wardrobe essentials.

Comfortable, practical and decidedly sleek, they act as the perfect anchor to my characteristically slouchy and oversized mode of dressing, or conversely can balance any overtly feminine silhouettes and bring them to a neat midpoint I feel more comfortable occupying.

In short, the loafer would have to be one of my favourite styles of shoe, so when various designers started coming out with versions featuring elevated block heels and off-beat textures and embellishments I was all for it – anything that helps me expand my current loafer collection is fine by me.

Gucci has to be at the forefront of the movement, with fringing, pearls and their signature
horse-bit detailing all donning their block-heeled designs, whilst the likes of Chloe are going with a more subtle approach with retro velvet and lasered detailing, and Tibi with edgier croc-embossed, eyelet stamped versions, among many others all jumping on the bandwagon.

This pair I’m wearing by up-and-coming brand Dorateymur via Farfetch are one of my personal favourites, with their square toe and stark patent leather they make a slightly edgy statement whilst remaining polished and subtle. They also come in a metallic silver version, which I am actually really into. Weird, but true.

So why the revival?

The real appeal of the elevated loafer lies in its ability to traverse the line between the masculine and feminine and the polished and the off-beat. It occupies a neat space that appeals to those looking for a slightly more femme take on this classic men’s shoe whilst giving us diehard fans a fresh take on our favourite silhouette. Or, more simply, a great excuse to buy more shoes. Need I say more?

Flattering, sophisticated, edgy, subtle and timeless all at once, there’s little not to love about them.

I like wearing mine with denim and loose silky shirts, or any similarly relaxed wardrobe staples for an elevated off-duty look, however they look equally great paired with sleek suiting or anything more structured. Personally though I love the polish they add to loose and relaxed silhouettes, giving your look an effortless purpose and elevation beyond what a standard loafer can offer.

Could the elevated loafer be the perfect shoe? It comes pretty close in my eyes.

Consider me a fan.
