The Easy High-Street Loafers That Look 3 Times Their Price Tag

If there is any shoe that you're going to wear all year round, it's a reliable loafer. After all, they tick every box: a comfortable flat shoe that you can wear all day, smart enough to dress up and casual enough for off-duty outfits, and with a colour, style, and price tag to appeal to everyone, they're a universal all-rounder. But with so many pairs on the market, how do you find a loafer worth investing in? That's easy–I've found the perfect pair, and you might be surprised to hear, they come with an affordable, high-street price point.

We've got the clever team at & Other Stories to thank for the Equestrian Buckle Loafer, a sleek, chic, understated leather flat shoe that looks every bit the French girl staple. Not a fan of an overly chunky sole? No problem, it's an elegant low heel that strikes the balance between loafer and of-the-moment ballet pump. Need a simple shoe that goes with everything? You've got it, you can just as easily wear these with a summer dress as a blazer and jeans. Looking for a shoe that you can rely on and won't break the bank? You can snap this up for under £100, and they come in no less than eight different colourways (though it's the classic black and cream that manage to stay in stock). 

After our editors collectively added this style to our baskets, I think it's fair to say that we might have a new sought-after shoe on our hands (just be sure to act quickly before the classic colours are snapped up too). Keep scrolling to shop the loafer, and to see some more of our favourite new-in spring shoes from & Other Stories.
