For the first time, I don’t anticipate buying any new heels. I don’t typically wear heels anyway, so flats it is for me. Luckily, one of the biggest shoe trends on the market for the upcoming season happens to be flat—well, sort of. Allow me to explain.
I’ve always been a big fan of loafers. The Gucci Jordaan loafers have been perhaps the most worn shoes in my closet for the past several years, but I’m ready for a fresh update on the classic style. My wishes have been granted thanks to Prada and its chunky-loafer It shoes and the grunge trend. I’m happy to have snagged a pair and want the warm weather to end so I can wear them on my rare outings without sweating my feet off. Prada’s loafers (which you’ll see below) have been all over my Instagram feed and have been selling out left and right, but many other brands have followed suit and gotten in on the trend themselves, which I fully support. Like the Prada ones, many styles have a lug sole or a low platform, but that doesn’t make them heels, in my opinion. I’ll gladly take the extra height, though.
