For shoe styles that feel good and look great as soon as they’re on your feet, the new slip-on models are hard to beat. Probably the most easy-going footwear of them all, slip-ons are blazing into the new season with more versatility than ever before. LLOYD Slip-Ons span a wealth of colours, textures and style details; shades from classic Black to fashion-forward Burgundy, textures from smooth leather to glossy patent-leather, from velvety nubuck to snakeskin effects, and decorative extras from simple monk straps to playful tassels and lavish Lyra perforations.
As slip-ons generally do not have closures, it's vital to look out for a flawless fit when shoe shopping. The styles should not cut into the heel or arch, the ball of the foot must be comfortably enclosed, and the shoe must be snug enough to prevent slipping during walking. Of course, choosing high-quality materials like soft leather is also important; they make the shoe more flexible, are kinder on the skin and less likely to cause pressure points or pinching.
Slip-on styles like penny or tassel loafers are ideal as office shoes in the summer. Teamed with loose-fitting cropped business trousers, they add airy comfort without outraging the rules of etiquette. But slip-ons are also perfect for evening wear too; here, more flamboyant flat-soled styles in patent leather or metallic finishes are a cool alternative to heeled courts.
