Loafers are popular footwear initially worn by men eventually adopted by women as well. Loafers are a soft pair of slip on shoes that are generally made of a soft fabric and not water proof. They can be worn formally as well as casually and available in a variety of colours and materials. Primarily made in velvet, suede, faux leather they are extremely comfortable for both men and women.
Women regard loafers as more of casual wear although this can be argued on depending on the type of loafers and the design, work, colours.
