Famous for their loafers not to mention great designs TOD’s, Gucci and Prada became my first choice of visits. Scanning through the shelves for slick loafers of traditional and attractive appearance my eyes were drawn to a TOD’s loafers coming in multiple colours but sadly most of their loafers are in velvet and all of them come with tiny soft rubber studs which I would shred through in a couple of hours. Unless you spend the majority of your days walking on red carpets or resting your feet on a mink carpet in a Rolls Royce then TOD’s loafers are not recommended as daily shoes. Rolling my eyes balls towards Prada’s section my eyes locked on to a black loafer with glossy finish. Picking it up in my head I reached the height of euphoria. What an amazing shoe, the quality felt with higher than any the other loafers. The design and thickness of it was absolutely perfect with proper soul with rubber feet, in other words it was a shoe meant to be walked in. Very formidable design that doesn’t distract or steal the attention of what you might be wearing on your upper body. Given the glossy finish it should be incredibly easy to maintain clean by wiping the shoe with a damp cloth. The shoes ticked all the right boxes except for the price. How do I convince myself to drop £245 on a pair of shoes?? I know they would probably last 2-3 but that’s still a hefty chunk of sterling pounds to spend on a single pair of shoes.
