Loafer slippers aren’t always right for your everyday wear – although that very much depends what you do every day! But they do hit the mark for those times when you want an original luxury shoe, which enables you to stand out from a crowd of casuals. Here we take you through five occasions and destinations where the dapper loafer slipper really should be your ‘go to’ shoe.
THE WHITE ISLE (IBIZA)
Originally IBIZA was all about dancing, drinking and drug-fuelled hedonism to a backdrop of Balearic beats. But now its all about LUXURY. And if you want to fit in, and get past the velvet rope, you need to be looking your absolute dandyish. Enter the loafer slipper. The opportunity to combine colour, style and stand-out cool, but with the added bonus of being able to place your bare foot onto a cushioned leather insock – thus tastefully filling the void between the flip flop (save them for the beach darling!) and a heavy welted loafer. Now you can comfortably sway all night to the pre-programmed EDM, as you contentedly sip your champagne, wonderfully sock free!
Once only the domain of the British ‘Hoi Polloi’ and moneyed gentry. Now Polo is open to everyone – even the ‘commoners.’ But each event really is the time and place to ‘dress up’ – requiring both ladies and gentleman to be suitably attired for the occasion. For men, that means a blazer; (with pocket square); collared shirt; brightly coloured chinos matched up with your finest dress shoes. So time to pull out your bespoke velvet slippers, preferably adorned with ones family ‘crest’, so your fellow horse watchers can separate the wheat from the chaff!
THE RED CARPET
At least once a year each of us get our ’15 minutes of fame’ by stepping out to a celebrity filled event via a red carpet. But oh what to wear? Attire too boring, and you’re already going to be pin pointed as a ‘Joe Ordinary.’ So it’s time to rock your bestest styled look. And that means wearing your bestest footwear, not your battered old brown brogues. Our advice – Pull out our DUKE inspired Luxury loafer slippers to ensure the crowd of onlookers believe you belong!
Be it a first date, keeping things fresh date or just a means to ‘Get Lucky’ – The Date is the ultimate footwear test. Before a man attends any date he should look at himself in a full length mirror and ask himself (out loud if necessary) ‘Will these shoes get me laid?’ If the answer is ‘probably not’ take them off and put them aside. Instead put on your smartest, coolest loafer slippers (we recommend these!) and feel the confidence rush into your toes.
THE SOUTH OF FRANCE (ST TROPEZ)
You’ve been delivered to Southern France’s most fashionable stretch of sand via a yacht bigger than most people’s houses. You will have lunch at the Dior restaurant. You will drink Champagne at Nikki Beach and be surrounded by beautiful girls and men with wealth larger than the GDP of many countries in the world. So your footwear needs to be exude a similar over the top opulence, making the loafer slipper your ultimate wing man.
