The men's loafer is a popular and timeless classic that has been enjoyed by gentlemen around the world for many years. This type of shoe was first created in 1926 and has been evolving ever since. The loafer is a slip-on shoe with no laces that was designed by Raymond Lewis Wildsmith of London-based bespoke shoe company Wildsmith Shoes. This shoe was initially called the 582, then the Model 98 until finally becoming known as ‘The Wildsmith Loafer’.
The loafer has Scandinavian origins. A shoemaker from Aurland, Norway designed the loafer in 1908. The loafer was originally worn by Norwegian farmers. In 1930, the shoemaker developed his design based on Native American footwear and the moccasin-like shoe traditionally worn by the workers of his home. The loafer became known throughout Europe. In 1934, a Maine-based shoemaker released its version of the shoemaker's shoe and named it Weejun because of its Norwegian inspiration.
The penny loafer is a variation of the loafer that became popular in the 1950s. The shoe gets its name from the tradition of slipping a penny into the leather strap on the shoe. This was said to bring good luck. The penny loafer is still a popular style today and can be found in many different materials, colors, and designs.
