Having grown up with a ballet background, I naturally adored the ballet flat craze that has been around for the past several summers. But with a wide foot, it was a trend that I sadly had to watch from afar. (Except in the privacy of my home where I often relax in a pair of actual ballet slippers.)
Last fall, thankfully, an emerging trend was spotted that I’m sure will impact footwear choices for the next several seasons: loafers.
I’ve always had a penchant for loafers:
Tod’s driving mocs,
The lengthier vamp of the loafer is so much more flattering to my foot and there is something a little more refined about a loafer over the ballet flat. (Off to find a pair of black velvet
smoking wine-sipping slippers.)
UPDATE: I am officially in love with the Jon Josef Gatsby in Zebra.
