A dash of summer flair, a touch of nonchalant elegance, and endless blissful comfort: loafers are so easy-going and simple to wear, yet so incredibly versatile. Especially when they’re as high-quality as the premium models in the 1888 Collection. LLOYD 1888 Loafers are manufactured using Goodyear Welted production techniques, which transform men’s shoes into triumphs of the shoemaker’s art. They bring style to even more formal occasions.
A classic penny loafer in elegant calfskin adds a touch of individual class to a business suit, while legendary tasselled loafers are superb team-mates for casual chinos. And you’ll love your 1888 Loafers for more than their good looks: the footbed adjusts to the shape of your foot in wear, thanks to a cushioning cork layer between the insole and outsole. That feeling of walking on air marks them out as something special! When buying your loafers, make sure the fit around the heel and arch of the foot is snug, but not tight; as you walk, the shoes should neither slip nor pinch.
Socks – to wear or not to wear? This knotty style issue sharply divides opinions where loafers are concerned. Let’s just say that there is no correct answer, but for today’s fashionable barefoot look it’s advisable to have broken your shoes in beforehand to prevent blisters from forming. The leather insole ensures breathability and hinders foot odour; simply ventilate well from time to time to ensure continued freshness.
