But, despite all that, when people hear the word loafers they generally think of the original style first. The original style was used by a Norwegian shoemaker, who made the Aurland moccasins. In the 1930’s, American shoemaking companies started manufacturing them and called them loafers.
Later, the G.H. Bass added a leather strip across the top in a typical diamond-shape cutout, and called them Weejuns. Typical loafers are very light, made out of cloth, with low heel and without a separate sole. Because of their design, they are a perfect choice for hot summer days, but can be used during other seasons in-doors.
When we talk about walking, loafers are a great choice
because of all those perks. First of all, they are light and comfy, giving your feet precisely the space they need, giving a comfortable feeling. Secondly, the light materials allow for the airflow, letting you feet the air and breeze on your feet. The low heel is also a must when it comes to comfortable waking, there is no denying. Wearing loafers, a person can walk for many miles without feeling the pressure on their feet and reducing the risk of blisters to zero.
