  • What about the lug sole version? In or out of style?

  • I, too, have been seeing these and think they look fresh (ever since that Paris Vogue photo last fall). I sort of wish I hasn’t given all much Gucci loafers away a few years ago. I may have to buy another pair. I wouldn’t do the lug soles, though. While they are practical and my husband loves them, I never felt like myself when wearing them. They don’t feel at all feminine to me.

  • What do you think of them in black suede?

  • I like them in black suede.

  • I am so glad I kept my loafers!! I am going to bring them to the front of my closet again!! Great style never dies !

  • I love them.

  • I’ve always been a fan of Tod’s black leather loafers, but this year I saw the camel suede Gucci’s on Net-A-Porter and fell hard. I think I need the black leather too. Thanks, Preston!

  • I love classic black loafers like these, but I never know how to wear them. What would you pair these with?

    By the by, I love your site. This is the first time I’ve commented, but I’ve been a reader and an appreciator of yours for years.

  • I’d wear them with jeans, mostly.

  • Preston, what do you think of the elevated loafers with a wedge heel? I find them so flattering and comfortable but maybe not as chic as a flat loafer? I’m only 5′ 5″ though so always looking for a bit of a lift…

  • Gucci loafers have been my standard go to shoe forever. I have my husband convinced it’s the easiest shoe to wear to the airport, easy to get on and off going through security ( the way we have to live life now if we want to travel). I will love them forever and I have some that are twenty years old and still going strong. Ciao.

  • Have you seen the black suede with the fringe? I like them but wondering if they are not as classic as the ones you posted?

  • In the ’80’s, I bought two pairs, both suede, one brown, one black. I love suede shoes; in addition to jeans, I would wear them with a skirt–straight or pleated, short or knee length. I think they would be great for an office job (if I had one). They would also be great with a camel boy coat.

  • I’ve always wanted a pair of Gucci loafers and this season I’m ready to splurge

  • I agree, these have been seen on everyone, and I love the look of instant ‘nerd chic’ they give you. I still love the furry ones though, but I’m not sure they will pass the test of time like these ones !
