Men’s fashion always revolves around a perfect mix of style, comfort and elegance. It may be clothing, accessories, perfumes or footwear. Keeping this in mind, the footwear industry is designing more stylish and comfortable shoes for men. One of such shoes is loafers that make the perfect combination of comfort and style. It is a perfect shoe type for all those men who prefer to be stylish but comfort remains the foremost preference. Generally, shoes for men mean a pair of laces that need to be tied up and if it is for formal dressing, then it is hard to think beyond these laces. At times, it becomes very uncomfortable to carry on, especially when there is dearth of time.

This is where loafers come into play. It slips on easily, have no buckles, and most importantly, there is no laces or Velcro. The low-cut uppers keep these loafers below the ankle height and makes it the most easiest of the shoes to put on. Furthermore, very small maintenance required for these shoes that makes it even more preferred among men. Apart from comfort, if we use loafers as fashion footwear, it has even more versatility to offer as it is a good fit for formal, semi-formal and even for casual dressing.

Ever growing demand for the men’s loafers compelled the footwear industry to think about the designing options and it has caused the introduction of several new styles of men’s loafers. Some of the common styles of loafers are moccasin, tasseled and penny loafers.

Moccasins boast as the original form of loafers because the existences of these shoes are found in the history. It is believed that moccasin loafers were first used by the Native Americans. This particular name “moccasin” derived from a Native American language. In 1970’s, the moccasin style was re-invented and straight away it was highly accepted by the men’s community. The superior looks, polished uppers with no lace, was very attractive. It became so popular and used so widely for formal and informal use that the difference between formal shoes and moccasins was really hard to make out.

Where Moccasins was preferred by the working class and aged men, the new generation was looking for a better and different option and thus the Penny Loafers was introduced. It has its footprints since 1930’s, but in the recent past, the Penny Loafers got more popularity. The retro look of the Penny Loafers with a decorative strap across the top added to its popularity and charm for the new gen men.

Another remarkable design is the Tassel Loafers. These are more decorative than its peers. Due to the tassels around the shoe, these men’s loafers come with an added charm.
