I have been obsessed with these loafers lately. They are my new favorite shoes! They're actually comfort shoes, or well, I think they are ... so I think they're intended for an older person, but it really doesn't matter to me.
These loafers, by SAS shoes combine function with style. Being the height that I am, I am quite fond of wearing heels. I have a couple pairs of flats, but they're not my go-to shoe, they're more for when I need to be practical (though my flat boots are an exception). I have also found that (ballet) flats can tend to be quite uncomfortable if worn for long amounts of time, and of course ... I gotta take it there, but if you don't wear socks or liners?!? Well, you know what I mean! Or am I alone on that one? I feel my foot tends to sweat and it creates an odor. Yuck! These loafers provide me with lots of comfort and support with all that padding, but also give me a nice polished look with a flair of style. To the up the comfort note: I have even sprinted towards a bus in these and my feet didn't feel any pain or strain at all. It may be a stretch, but I think they're even more comfortable than a pair of tennis or sport shoes.
These shoes are a variation of the classic penny loafer and have a structured look to them. I find them to pair quite nicely with dresses and skirts. As for pants, I like them best with a crop or ankle length style pant.
First photo was taken en route to Amoeba Music in Hollywood. I believe I used the low-sharpening function on my camera, with the natural sun light, I like the way it turned out. Second photo is at my aparment, the carpet adds some texture and plays nicely with the pattern on the dress.
