I’ve been noticing that loafers are getting taller, particularly in the sense of thick soles and even platforms.

This Rag & Bone shoe (pictured) is a great example — I like how it feels substantially different from heeled loafers as well as the classic penny loafer. I also think the lug sole would be great for winter!

The shoe is available in sizes 5-11 for $395.

Looking for something similar but more affordable? These Seychelles loafers are $159 at Nordstrom and Amazon (which also has some colors on sale).

Just want some basic loafers? Some of our favorite loafers for work are these Sam Edelman loafers that we’ve featured before, as well as these sleek 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“)!
