In the earlier post, we told you about 5 types of shoes every man should have in his wardrobe. Moving forward with this, we want to put some light on shoes which have been there with us for more than 80 years- Loafers! Penny and Tassel shoes are two most popular types of loafers but there is more that you should know about them.
So, we tell you about 8 types of loafer shoes and when to wear them and which attire they look best with.
What are the different Styles and Types of Loafers?
1. Kiltie Loafer Shoes
Kiltie loafer shoe might take you back to the Victorian era because of their old school looks. At first, you might confuse them as Tassel but what makes them different is the fringed tongue or extra piece in the shape of a fence that lies over the tongue.
2. Penny Loafer Shoes
Penny is undoubtedly the most popular type of loafer shoes. It has a leather strap across the top with a diamond shaped design. A shoe company in the early 1930s named its version of loafers as Weejuns. When they became highly popular, Americans gave it a name- Penny Loafer Shoes. According to an alternate theory of 1930s, two pennies are enough to make an emergency call and hence the name, Penny.
