Does anyone else get really stumped when it comes to choosing shoes this time of year? Between wanting to shop all the latest shoe trends (there’s no shortage of them right now) and dressing practically for wet, unpredictable spring weather, it’s easy to spend way too much time deliberating over our footwear choices.
That’s why we’re all about the always stylish, classic loafer. Not as casual as a trainer but much comfier than a heel, plus hella relevant with current sartorial trends, loafers continue to be the footwear icon of the moment.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by us. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy or click on something we link to on our site, we may earn a commission.
