Chanel Loafers Are The Shoe Equivalent Of The 2.55
The Only Pair Of Loafers Worth Investing In
When you think of cult Chanel items, our minds straight away wander to the brand’s 2.55 handbag. It’s hard to think of a tote that has such a legendary status. But, if you step away from the arm candy, there’s a whole host of other items that spring to mind, and a large number of them are - yes, you guessed it, shoes. From the brand’s two-toned ballerina slippers. to their espadrille sandals and sold-out dad sneakers, Chanel really does know how to do footwear.
Not to be forgotten in the list of covetable Chanel footwear, is the brand’s leather loafers. While there's plenty of love for the Chanel chunky dad sandals and sneakers, it's worth noting that these flats are chic yet comfortable and still retain a cool boyish attitude to them. Really, there's no other shoe that strikes the balance between style and attitude quite so well. Just like the house’s iconic flap bag, their loafers are made form diamond-patterned leather, embellished with the iconic interlocking logo. Priced at HKD 8,700, they aren’t cheap - but then, this is Chanel we’re talking about.
Chanel’s loafers are not new to the game, the brand has released numerous versions throughout the years and has been considered somewhat a fashion insiders secret. A timeless staple, each is made from sturdy leather that is made to soften with time and depending upon what pair you’ll find the logo is either placed on the front or to the side.
Just like all things Chanel, the list of fans is endless. From Quan Zhilong to the fashion blogger Yoyo Cao, the cult footwear has graced the feet of many a fashion VIP. Which just proves our point that with Chanel loafers: You really can style them with anything.
While the Gucci Princetown reigns supreme, we love the idea of breaking away from the crowd and opting for a Chanel pair instead. This is one investment you won’t regret. That, and the 2.55, of course.
