Loafers: The Fit-in All Occasion Slippers

Honestly, I call them shoes and no more.  It is just by research that I learned that these easy to put on shoes were called "Loafers.".  They are also referred to as slip-ons and are low, lace-less shoes. The style most commonly seen, known as a loafer or slippers in American culture, has a moccasin construction.

Fashion like these are not relatively native to the Philippine culture because in ordinary days Filipinos wore "slippers."  They are the open type sandals that we commonly see nationwide.  For Americans, however, there is a type of shoe called slippers and that is what is referred to as a loafer.

Loafers have gained popularity and can be worn in almost any situation.  It can be said that a loafer is a fit-all occasion shoes.  You can fit it in your formall attire, smart casual or even the most rugged style.  Technically, that's how cool a loafer had become.

According to our research, "A bespoke shoe company based in London that was established in 1847[disputed – discuss] developed the first loafer as a country house shoe for the landed gentry and the royal family. The "Wildsmith Loafer" made by Raymond Lewis Wildsmith of Wildsmith Shoes, was designed for King George VI as a casual house shoe. The shoe has subsequently been marketed and sold by other London shoe firms and dubbed "the Harrow"."

Loafer designs vary from designer to designer.  There are those who are able to fit across various occasions while there are those designers which decided the flexibility of their designs.

Where to shop for good loafers?  Well, you can actually either go offline or online.  Nowadays, however, most of us prefer to buy online as long as the pricing is good and the quality and return policies are fine.

So if you would chose, which do you prefer to wear, a slipper or a loafer?
