Franco Sarto has a number of loafers that are getting a bunch of really good reviews. The pictured one (Carolynn) in particular has 340 reviews with a 4-star rating at Zappos, as well as 199 reviews with a 4.5 star rating at Nordstrom. Nice!
I like that these loafers lean all the way in to the trend — the lug soles, the huge tassels, the shiny patent. (Some of the other Franco Sarto loafers are more subdued, though!)
(Hunting for something similar? Some of our long-standing favorites are these Sam Edelman loafers that we’ve featured before, as well as these Steve Madden ones that come in regular and wide widths. If you want something more classic, readers love Sperry; if you want comfort, Vionic has a bunch. Meanwhile, if you want something a bit more feminine or slouchy, the Tory Burch loafers are all really highly rated at Nordstrom (especially this “ballet loafer“!).
