The Best Fall Shoe: Loafers

On a whim, I snapped up a pair of black calf loafers on sale last December. When Tommy Ton styled every look with loafers for his beautiful Deveaux show above in February, I knew I was on to something. My advice is to buy and break them in now so they’ll be good to go in September.

Top Tod’s, Church’s, Sebago, Bass Weejuns.

  • Love these choices Preston and I appreciate your tips but I just can’t “break anything in” these days (cranky in my old age ☺️) so may have to stick with the ubiquitous Gucci’s. My heart wants the Redone with calf hair that are in the Net a Porter sale though.

  • I’ve been wearing them for decades. Where’s Tommy Ton been? 😉

  • Love this! I bought a pair of the REDONE Weejuns— I love the look and was happy to have an alternative to my Guccis, but I have found that the heel is very stiff and has been impossible to break in. Any suggestions?
