Shoe Spotting: Marni’s preppy loafer pumps
Posted by on August 5, 2012 | 2:36 pm EST

While Marni may not be the label to first come to mind when the hunt for a great pair of heels is in order, we reckon these loafer pumps could change that notion. We at Fashion Glamour have a soft spot for the label’s offbeat tendencies, which is why we’re lusting over these patent-leather pumps we spotted at Net-a-Porter.

Although loafers are an unquestionable essential for many women because of their comfort and versatility, heeled loafers are often debated upon by women. Whether you’re with us or not, we’re still pledging our adoration for this non-vertigo-inducing loafer variation. It’s still relatively high with its 4.5-inch heel and 1-inch platform, but we’re absolutely enamored by its quaint and old-fashioned appeal. These shoes make for an easy footwear standouts as well for they are anything but modern and sexy—characteristics that dominate shoe designs today. The buckles on the vamp and the chunky heel are also a welcome sight this season, after being swarmed by stacks of pin-thin heels and over-embellished toe boxes.

Besides its mannish charm, these Marni pumps’ anti-summer colorway of green, brown and black is particularly appealing. Pairs like this offer a multitude of styling options because of its androgynous appeal. From dresses to skirts and trousers to leggings, a pair of heeled loafers will definitely yield an effortlessly cool ensemble despite its seemingly limiting aesthetic.

Elevated loafers have been on a rampage since last fall and frankly, we’re happy that labels continue to appreciate its preppy and boyish appeal. These Marni shoes are already available via Net-a-Porter for $755, but we’re holding back until fall season to take these shoes to the streets.
