Everyone is heads over heels over Gucci loafers

The fashion world has decided that Gucci loafers once again will remain on everyone’s wish list. This season, we’re not solely seeing kangaroo lined toes, but now also incorporating low, mid and even pastels.


Gucci loafers made their debut in 1953 as part of a menswear collection where they accompanied a glamorous horse-racing set. The horse-bit detail has remained a key element and was initially inspired by conversations Mr. Gucci would overhear about racing and polo amongst the wealthy elite of his time.

It wasn’t until the 1970s when the beloved loafers became favored by Europe’s chicest women. With each season, the shape, materials and details are reimagined, but their beauty fundamentally remains the same.

With creative director Alesandro Michele at the reigns of the brand, Gucci loafers are making the strongest comeback yet. Let’s face it, Gucci loafers are just plain cool.

How to Wear Gucci Loafers

So how do you wear each of these looks? The eye catching nature of each style means you don’t have to try too hard from the ankle up. In fact, the more ankle, the better – regardless of age or gender.

Try pairing each with cropped denim, frayed hem lines, midi dresses and even black tie formal.
