It is time for a new fashion review here on my blog. Today, I am going to be talking to you guys all about my Gucci Loafers. These are one of the pairs of shoes in my collection that I get compliments on year after year. Because they seemed to be so popular when I am out and about, I thought that it was about time that I chat about them here on my blog and let you all know why I love them so much. When a pair of shoes like this are so expensive, I want to be 100% transparent and let other people if I think they are worth the money or not. Without further ado, here is my review on my Gucci Loafers.
Why I wanted these shoes?
I can remember many years ago when these shoes first got super popular, I hated them. I was seeing them all over Instagram and I thought that they were so clunky and ugly. For me, these were just shoes that influencers would wear. Never in a million years did I think that I would want to own a pair. It is safe to say that I proved myself wrong there. Over time, I started seeing people style them up in a similar way to how I would and that is why I wanted to go ahead and pick them up.
How they look.
Next up, I want to chat to you guys about how these Gucci Loafers look. I am sure that these pair of shoes will really divide people, but I think a lot of it comes down to how you dress them. I completely understand that to most people, these are quite a masculine pair of shoes. However, for me, these Gucci loafers are the embodiment of classic Gucci. For me, my favourite look is to pair these with a pair of black cropped trousers and a cashmere jumper and then I am good for a full day at work.
The comfort level.
Something that is amazing about these Gucci Loafers is that they are so comfortable. The longer that I have worn these for, the more comfortable they have got. I think that is down to the fact that the leather is so soft and supple. Now because these shoes are a few years old, they have more or less moulded to the shape of my feet. Now, they fit like a pair of old gloves and I love that about them. Whenever I get a compliment on them, the first thing I mention is that they are the most comfortable pairs of shoes that I own.
For any item of shoes that I add into my closet, I need to make sure that they are practical. Even though I do opt for appearance more than anything else, if they are not practical, I wont wear them. These Gucci Loafers for me are just easy to slip on and the run about. I love that they are easy and effortless shoes. One thing that I will say is that any slip on loafer may be a little hard to walk in if you are moving with any pace, but it isn’t terrible at all. They can slip off a little though, but nothing crazy.
There is only one downfall of these Gucci Loafers in my opinion and that is the soft leather. Granted, for the top of the shoes, I think that they are incredible. However, the sole of the shoe that you actually work on is incredibly soft leather. The second time that I wore these, I walked for 20 minutes from the tube in London to my hotel. By the time I kicked my shoes off, there was a specific place that had worn almost of the leather away. I did just take them to a cobbler to get them soled. But realistically when I am paying so much for a pair of shoes, I don’t want to be paying more to get them re-soled.
Have I got my money’s worth?
It is safe to say that Gucci Loafers are not cheap. The standard pair without the fur trim are the best part of £530 and they seem to be increasing all of the time. I have had the same pair for the best part of three years now and I wear them every autumn and winter without fail. I can actually see on the app that I add my outfits to, that I have worn this pair of shoes over 150 times. For that reason, I am confident that I have got more than my money’s worth out of this pair of shoes since I first purchased them.
I hope that you guys enjoyed reading this review on my Gucci Loafers. They are a great pair of shoes a real staple. I understand that these have been together forever and a day by this point, but I love them and they seem to be a crowd pleaser. There are not many pairs of shoes in my closet that I can confidently pull out year after year and know that they are going to work. There is a reason why this style of loafer has been a best-seller for Gucci for many years. Personally, I know that if I sadly have to part ways with this pair, I would just replace them with an identical pair of Gucci’s. As always, I would love to hear from you guys. Let me know if you love these or have they had there day?
