Creepers and loafers with retro-inspired comfort that’s perfect for both working from home and going out.
half 90’s creeper, half preppy loafer, the chunky loafer straddles two worlds, and is equally at home in either. Their versatility makes them the perfect shoe for uncertain times – when you don’t know whether you’ll be in or out. A chic in-between choice for party girls that are stuck at home and don’t know where the next invitation is coming from, we slip them on to get us in the right headspace for whatever we’re taking on that day. Whether it’s party time or not, the vintage-inspired shape of a Gucci horsebit and the unorthodox sophistication of a Dries van Noten pump work just as well on a crucial Zoom call as they do for drinks in a dimly-lit bar.
We could all use a little mood lift right now, and these shoes will, quite literally, elevate you – and your wardrobe, it the most subtle and effortless way possible. In a season that’s less about stilettos and more about staying at home, a platform loafer gives you flexibility – to inject some glamour into your at-home lewk, or be worn out-out (if the opportunity arises). If IG is anything to go by, Prada loafers are the thing to be seen in – whether anyone can actually see you or not is really neither here nor there. However there are options out there, from timeless Church’s to statement Roger Vivier – the key word is chunky.
