Katie Holmes and Gigi Hadid Both Wear These Flat Shoes With Jeans On Repeat

If you’re a regular Who What Wear reader, you’ll know we 'stan' Reformation. If you’re not (firstly, welcome!), I’m sure you can understand our brand crush. Sustainably minded designs, ultra cool vibes and tried and tested quality—not to mention the endless celeb and influencer endorsements. We see Reformation as an excellent option when we’re looking to invest a little bit more than the high street but don’t quite have the budget to stretch to designer pieces. Usually this is when we’re shopping for elevated capsule buys with a stylish twist—the perfect wedding-guest dress, a pair of dream jeans or, what we’re here to talk about today, a great pair of loafers.

Katie Holmes dresses up her Reformation loafers and jeans outfit with a blazer.

Plenty of Reformation shoes make it onto our wish lists, but the Agathea loafers are so good that they deserve this dedicated article of their own. As you know, us WWW editors spend a lot of time scrolling, browsing and trying the latest fashion in order to report back to you about the pieces actually worth investing in. There’s an awful lot out there to sieve through, especially when it comes to loafers, since the likes of Prada, Gucci and Saint Laurent have long made them the most covetable flat shoe around. But the Agathea loafers stand out from the crowd. Not only because you have eight different colours to choose from, but they’re also the perfect balance between chunky and classic, so they’ll last you through all the nuanced loafer trends to come. They’re also incredibly comfortable and go with basically everything I own—especially denim.

Gigi adds personality to her low-key jeans outfit with the leopard Reformation loafers.

Enough about me, though, the Agathea also comes with its own celebrity fan club—both Katie Holmes (queen of understated style) and Gigi Hadid (icon on and off the catwalk) have these exact loafers and they wear them on repeat. In fact, both of them have worn them to complete rather chic wide-leg jeans outfits recently—thanks for the inspiration ladies. When they’ve got the choice of any shoes in the world and they pick these, you know they’ve got to be good. Gigi loves her leopard version and Katie the classic black, and you can shop both (and the other 6 colours) if you keep scrolling…
