What Is A Loafer And Are They In Style?

Aug 17, 2007
There are some who will deal with the pain of uncomfortable shoes just to look good and be fashionable. I see women all the time in super high heeled shoes looking like they are about to fall down and complaining of sore feet. I don't want to sound mean or uncaring, but they are doing it to themselves, it isn't necessary.

Personally, I fall into the comfort category and I know many people are just like me and would rather be comfortable than wear a shoe that hurts my feet just to be trendy. The makers of shoes have noticed that the trend is towards this philosophy and are now increasing production of various options of comfortable shoes. One of these varieties is the timeless loafer which has seen a huge resurgence in popularity recently. These highly comfortable shoes have never really gone out of style but they haven't really been considered fashionable for over ten years, now they are considered stylish. Here are some of the reasons people are choosing loafers today.

Most people who wear loafers, myself included will tell you that their loafers are their favorite and most comfortable shoes. They are very breathable and don't constrict plus they are supportive of your arches. They also are usually highly cushioned which adds to the level of comfort. Do you ever come home and just throw your shoes off as soon as you get in the door because they are hurting your feet so bad? Well, with loafers you don't have that feeling; in fact many people continue wearing theirs around the house after they get home.

Another thing people like about loafers is that they are easy to get on and off and you don't have to deal with laces. I particularly like this aspect. For people who have back problems they are ideal because you can just step into them and slide them on without having to bend over to tie your shoe. If you have back pain or some other medical condition that prevents you from being able to bend over easily try loafers.

The versatility of loafers is another reason for their popularity. They can be worn with semi dressy pants or even with khakis or jeans. They are equally suited for church, office, or a trip to the grocery store. With jeans they give you a dressier look. If you are on your feet a lot at work you may want to consider a pair for the office. You feel a huge difference in comfort and you won't be so tired at the end of the day.

There are many varieties of loafers now being offered compared to what was offered only a decade ago. In the past you may have only been able to find the shoe in black or brown leather but today you can find them in a variety of materials and colors.
