Do you like loafers? As in the traditional leather ones?

ijustwannadance Wed 05-Apr-17 18:21:42

God no. They are fugly.

humanfemale Wed 05-Apr-17 18:57:28

I like them.

Floisme Wed 05-Apr-17 19:00:29

I like them too, not quite as much as brogues but they're a good second.

Shopgirl1 Wed 05-Apr-17 19:16:49

Love them. Prefer them to brogues in fact.

libertydoddle Wed 05-Apr-17 19:17:11

I love them. I wear either loafers or brogues almost every day to work.

Millybingbong Wed 05-Apr-17 19:17:50

Picture please so I can be clear what you mean and see if it is the thing I am thinking of buying

EmmaC78 Wed 05-Apr-17 19:28:36

I love loafers too. Quite often wear them at work.

Love a loaf.

Crumbs1 Wed 05-Apr-17 19:39:11

I live in my Boden loafers.

Another loafer fan here. So much easier to kick off under your desk than brogues.

Mrsknackered Wed 05-Apr-17 19:40:36

I really like them. Had a pair from Office last year and they ripped my feet to absolute shreds though sad

margaritasbythesea Wed 05-Apr-17 21:39:02

Yep. I love brogues but they don't suit me. Loafers do a very similar job but suit me more.

Love loafers and brogues

Llamallann Wed 05-Apr-17 23:24:04

Loafers are amazing. I pretty much always wear them. I have many pairs in a variety of colours. Work, casual, smart - you name it there's a loafer for every occasion!

Seems I perhaps like them a little too much grin

Depends on your legs. If they're dumpy like mine with big calves no.

MadisonMontgomery Thu 06-Apr-17 11:09:42

I love love love loafers and brogues - pretty much all I wear.

I wish I loved loafers, as they are the ultimate comfy work shoe, but they are just too hideous. Sorry. I am in the minority though.

I have some velvet leopard print ones. I love them.

Greenvalleymama Sat 08-Apr-17 21:08:15

I love the look of them on other people, but find them too cold and uncomfortable myself. I find they rub on the back of my heel (along with brogues, and most other styles of shoes worn without socks).

I have a couple of pairs, one navy leather and one rose gold, but rarely wear them. I like them, but they don't like me!

Mrs9C Sat 08-Apr-17 21:25:30

No, but I don't like brogues either.

squoosh Sat 08-Apr-17 21:27:46

Oh yeah, I've gotta lotta loafer love.

Brogues on the other hand.....make me feel like a dumpy games mistress from an Angela Brazil book.

I have a loafer compulsion and I am also partial to a boat shoe. I look mannish in brogues.
