Perhaps loafers are the result of a request for a suitable house shoe for the landed gentry or maybe they stem from a clever combination of Norwegian shoes and a native American moccasin. Whilst we can’t say for certain – one thing that we are sure of is that mainline loafers have become an essential component in the modern man’s shoe collection.

At their most basic a loafer is a laceless, slip-on shoe, produced with a separate sole unit.

Over the years many different loafer designs have been developed and you can find them all available within the Civardi collection.

The simplest design of course is a plain loafer – clean & minimalist. Beyond this, you will find more intricate models including the famous penny loafer with a decorative strap across the shoe, tassel loafers with decorative tassels, as well as our stunning horsebit loafers – which you may also know as a “snaffle” loafer.

We have also developed a loafer embellished with a lace tied into a bow – this has proved particularly popular for evening wear as can be seen with our Arthur patent leather loafers.

Loafers can be produced in all materials, with leather and suede being the most popular. The Stephen navy suede loafers are one of our most popular designs.

The large range of loafers shown above is only a selection of what is possible with Civardi Shoes. All Civardi designs can be fully customised by you simply by choosing the “customise & order” option.

So, please have fun experimenting with each design until you have created your own unique mainline loafers – our artisan craftsmen look forward to producing your unique design!
