Symbol of the fifties and preppy style, loafers have however distant origins: the first to introduce them, in fact, were North America Indians. They reached the actual shape around the 30s. In the 80s, Gucci made them famous by adding a snaffle bit metal buckle at the front. Thus, they have become the essential accessory of today’s business men, up to be a symbol of American high society. We can freely say that loafers are the most popular shoes ever. The new menswear trends revisit the aesthetics and freedom of the dandy, making them very contemporary, but they also focus on a more casual and sporty look featuring thick soles in many nuances, decidedly practical and wearable in every occasion.
The colour palette of Ermenegildo Zegna menswear summer collection prefers natural nuances and, above all, an abundance of pink, in its various shades, which tinges everything, even loafers! Super trendy, in soft leather, with a thick rubber sole, they are really perfect, and fashion lovers already adore them.
