How does a Loafer look like?

The shoe is composed of

  • Lace-less shoe
  • Exposed ankle
  • Shoes do not wrap snugly around the ankle
  • Separate sole
  • A low heel
  • The upper vamp has a moccasin-like construction
  • Loafers also feature a piece of leather across the vamp, which is known as a saddle

While loafers have a separate sole, moccasins don’t have

  • Loafers have heel, while it’s missing in a moccasin
  • Unlike moccasins, Loafers do not have embroidery, beading or other ornamentation while moccasins have
  • Both of them originated in different continents

Below are a few key differences between a moccasin and a loafer – • While loafers have a separate sole, moccasins don’t have • Loafers have heel, while it’s missing in a moccasin • Unlike moccasins, Loafers do not have embroidery, beading or other ornamentation while moccasins have • Both of them originated in different continents

Origin of loafers

Unlike other shoes, the loafer has several origin stories, which is related to the moccasin, thus adding to the confusion. However, the two most popular, widely-popular theories are –

  1. They are evolved from a Norwegian man who evolved traditional Native American and Norwegian footwear
  2. They are evolved from an English royal commission of a new form of house shoe.

While it is difficult to find out the exact source, the journey of the evolution of tassel shoes is surely interesting.

Bollywood celebrities have been spotted donning loafers and tassel shoes at several occasions. Be it premier of their movie or they are promoting their movies or attending any award ceremony.

Different Brune & Bareskin loafers donned by Bollywood celebrities

Below is the list of designer tassel shoes worn by Bollywood celebrities that have become highly popular in Indian men’s fashion podium in recent times. Whatever designs you’re seeing at Voganow are some of the Bollywood favorites thus increasing their demand to three folds. These timeless loafers are nothing but mongrels of classic designs, whose elements have been mashed up into a “new” modern shoe what we call as tassel shoes.

The Penny Tassel

This is a classic casual loafer design for men, inspired from the original Bass Weejun design. These shoes can be worn with chinos, jeans, cords and with any casual trouser. The signature design features a rounded moc toe, the “beefroll” bindings on the sides, and a diamond-shaped slit which was earlier used as a secret place to store pennies.

The penny loafer originated in the 1930s when loafers of different designs were gaining popularity especially in men’s fashion world. In a dramatic way, this stylish foot wear started with the Spaulding Company when they started producing Penny loafers after those of Norwegian dairy farmers wearing those shoes who had appeared in an article in Esquire Magazine.

The Tassel Loafer

Did you know the tassel loafer turned 67 this year?

And these designer shoes look as youthful, vibrant, and relevant as ever. Tieless tassel shoes are quite similar to slip-ons, moccasin and penny loafers and have been in men’s wardrobes since the 1930s. The good old American tassel loafer became popular in India after Bollywood celebrities started donning it. If we look into its history, it was really an adaptation of a Norwegian fisherman-type shoe which became popular between the great wars.

The tassel loafer is a whole-cut design flaunting a rounded toe defined by a reverse seam. The leather “stings” that holds the tassels usually border the back heal of the shoe. This detailing is similar to boat shoes like Sperry or Sebago. These loafers are often made of stiff oxblood leather and have been known for their durability, versatility, and timelessness. You don’t have to search for them in vintage and thrift shops, for they are now available in Voganow.
