Loafers and driving shoes are timeless. This characteristic shoe returns every summer. Putting the shoes on quickly and barefoot naturally plays a part in this. It is the ideal shoe for a wonderful day at the beach or strolling along the boulevard. Driving shoes can even be casually worn to dress down a suit. We are happy to explain how best to wear driving shoes or loafers.
How do you wear a loafer?
If you want to dress completely according to the traditional rules, you will have to step into the loafer barefoot. It is important that you roll up the trouser legs a few centimeters. Wearing the trouser leg in this way will give your loafer the elegant look you are aiming for.
However, you would not be the first one that prefers wearing loafers with small, invisible sock for enhanced comfort. Aurélien’s Invisible Terry Towelling Socks are the perfect solution for a shoe that is tricky to wear with socks. These socks do not rise above your shoe and prevent discomfort on your feet due to transpiration.
Combining loafers with outfits
Loafers come in different models, shapes and materials. Which shoe is best combined with which outfit? We are happy to answer this question for you.
Suede Driving Shoes
This shoe was originally designed to make driving classic Italian cars easier. Naturally, the driver's choice of shoes could not negatively impact the rest of his tasteful outfit.

This can be in the form of a tie or leather band.The suede driving shoes are often featured in more casual outfits, especially in spring and summer.
