Men's loafers' shoes are the proverbial casual slip-ons. They give your feet comfort for a whole day's work, and exude style that takes you into the realm of formal. Made of leather and suede, you can buy men's loafers online to be stylishly attired while loafing around with friends, lounging about with family or laughing along with colleagues in office.
Men's loafers began their journey in Norway. It is generally assumed that Norwegian farmers wore these low cut shoes to protect their feet while feeding cows in 'cattle loafing areas'. Esquire magazine's photograph of Norwegian farmers led the design department of the Spaulding family towards this shoe. Spaulding's chose the name 'Loafer' for the casual, flat slip-ons. In 1934, boot maker GH Bass introduced the modern day incarnation of men's loafers. From Norway to the rest of Europe and from there to the US, and then to becoming a global phenomenon, it has been a long a journey for this casual style.
Bass called his loafers 'Weejuns' and added the modern design of a strip across the vamp with a diamond cut. Shoe stylists soon began to use the cut out for embellishments, especially pennies. That's the story of penny loafers! Then came the Gucci loafer with metal straps, followed by suede loafers for contemporary touches. Today, Fermani, Forest, Hitz, Red Tape, Casor, Rockport and many more offer a variety of loafers in amazing colors. Design finishes include foot bed pads, heel cushioning, contrast linings and decorative stitches. Though brown is the most popular hue for this casual shoe, you can buy men's loafers online in tan, black, olive green, grey and even red.
