Once the daggy footwear of grandpas all across the land (although we were all quietly envious, of course), the old loafer finally got cool - and we couldn’t be happier.  Branching away from their slipper-like origins, loafers are now hitting the high street in black leather, monochrome tones and even sweet as pastel hues. With the ability to dress-up or dress-down an outfit, these perfectly preppy shoes are a footwear dream.
