Here’s Why Bollywood Is Obsessed With Loafers This Year & Why We Totally Approve Of This Trend



A shoe that’s dressy, casual, comfortable and affordable, all at the same, loafers are the new hip trend in town. 

In a world dominated by sneakers, loafers haven’t always been a popular choice. However, in the recent few years, they’ve become extremely popular amongst Indian celebrities.  

Be it award shows, promotions or ethnic wear, loafers are everyone’s go-to footwear. 

Why? Well, it’s a shoe that can be worn for formal as well as casual occasions, with ethnic as well as western wear and is available in every budget. 

Different Types Of Loafers  

Before moving on, we need to know exactly what loafers are and what are the different types of loafers out there. 

Loafers are a type of shoes which do not have any laces, flaps or any other type of closure. These shoes have low to no heel and come in a variety of different colours, shapes and textures. 

Some popular types of loafers include penny loafers, tassel loafers, Belgian loafers and slipper loafers. 

Now that you know the basics, here are five more reasons why loafers are probably the coolest type of footwear for men

1. The Perfect Indo-Western Footwear

If you’re into indo-western outfits, loafers are a must in your footwear collection. They can balance out an experimental look like no other footwear can. From kurtas to shirts and blazers, we love how versatile loafers are. 


2. Budget-Friendly Dress Shoes

We all know how buying dress shoes for men can leave our pockets empty. They are expensive and require high-maintenance. Loafers on the other hand are a lot more affordable and can be easily used as dress shoes. 


3. A Huge Variety

They come in a variety of different colours, prints and materials. This is great because you can choose something that completely matches your style. Be it leather, suede or velvet, there are many different types of loafers for every mood and every personality. 


4. Slip Into The Comfort

Loafers are probably not as comfortable as sneakers, however, they are more comfortable than a lot of other shoes. They’re easy to just slip into and step out. No matter what your outfit looks like, the right loafers will instantly make you look put together. 


5. Trendy Elements

From tassels and chains to textures like snakeskin and suede, loafers are constantly reinventing themselves. Unlike other types of footwear, which have a very traditional look, loafers are always available in new trendy variations.
