Sam Edelman is a well-known name within the fashion industry. Their shoes are known to be extremely comfortable, easy to take care of, made out of the highest quality materials and they are known to be long lasting. Of those shoes, the Sam Edelman Women’s Talia Slip-On Loafer has gotten some of the best reviews from fans of the brand.
The shoes have a reinforced sole, allowing for a comfortable footbed and less impact and stress on the foot. The upper is supple leather that doesn’t require much breaking in or wears before it is comfortable. Available in many colors, the leather is resistant to staining, creasing, and marking. The moc toe makes this more professional looking while still being casual enough for daily wear. The metallic accent adds a touch of class and a bit of interest.
The interior of the shoe is lined in leather as well with a cushioned footbed. The more you wear it, the more comfortable the Sam Edelman Women’s Talia Slip-On Loafer gets. Finally, a comfortable stacked heel of about 1/2 inch keeps you slightly elevated but makes it more comfortable.
The leather is treated to be extremely comfortable and ready to wear.
Multiple color options make this go with any outfit.
Doesn’t require a lot of breaking in.
Didn’t like that:
The shoe uses real leather, so it isn’t Vegan friendly.
The heel makes this not as comfortable as some of the other options.
The metallic accent can get stuck on wide leg pants.
Aerosoles Women’s Drive in Penny Loafer is considered a “driving moc” by the manufacturers. It has the look of a classic penny loafer, with all of its preppy charm, but it is far more comfortable than you might remember. There is a memory foam footbed that makes it even more comfortable. Over time, it will shape to your foot so that you can get a personalized fit. If you don’t like the memory foam, there is already a traditional footbed that is comfortable.
The treads of the shoes are Diamond Flex Soles, which means you can do almost any terrain without having to worry about pain. Every Aerosoles shoe has this tread and it disperses friction away from your foot. This also helps make it a little more water resistant.
You’ll get some air into your foot with perforated suede uppers with moc toe stitching. With all of these details, they are still extremely easy to slip onto your foot and extremely light. There is a slight heel on the Aerosoles Women’s Drive in Penny Loafer, about 3/4 of an inch.
Extremely comfortable fit on the foot.
Synthetic materials make this friendly toanyone.
Extremely airy and won’t make your foot sweat.
Didn’t like that:
Doesn’t quite have the high end feeling others do.
No metallic accents to break up the color of the shoe.
Runs slightly narrow compared to other loafers.
For a more casual look that still has the sturdiness of a traditional loafer, STEVEN by Steve Madden Women’s Quintus Slip-On Loafer has a classic slip-on style but comes in fun shades and metallic finishes as well. All of the finishes are extremely high quality and will withstand quite a bit of abuse.
The padded footbed is extremely comfortable and most people won’t have to take a lot of time to break them into your foot. The inside and outside of the shoe is extremely easy to clean, making it a shoe that when cared for properly will last for an extremely long time.
The shoe does have a heel that is about 3/4 of an inch high. However, the arch of the loafer is extremely reinforced and provides a lot of support, making this the perfect walking shoe.
Extremely reinforced arch and footbed for a more comfortable walk.
Many different color options and finishes for a loafer.
Traditional shape always looks classic.
Didn’t like that:
The brighter colors will sometimes transfer onto other materials, so make sure to be careful.
Made out of suede, so it isn’t waterproof.
Item runs a bit small so make sure thatyou order at least half a size up. If you have wide feet, order a size up.
If you are looking for a loafer for women that has a more modern look and feel than some of the other ones on this list, but they still have that classic look that makes it appropriate for almost all situations. The strappy look is perfectly on trend, but still offers coverage so that you can look professional. The straps also allow for a more comfortable wear because you don’t have to worry about swelling feet.
The somewhat strange (for loafers) design means that there is a back entranceto the show, keeping the structural integrity of the shoe in place for many years. There haven’t been any problems with the zipper from anyone who has reviewed the shoe. Make sure to buy it true to size so that it fits. If you tend to be between sizes, order the smaller one.
The 1″ heel is wood stacked, giving a more modern look to the shoe. The sole is light padded but not too “squishy” making it a perfect professional shoe. The upper part of the shoe is leather, meaning that it doesn’t have too much give. The lining and sole are both synthetic.
More modernized look to the loafer with the same feel.
Great venting for people who are on their feet all day long.
Zipper back makes it an easier show to get into.
Didn’t like that:
No memory foam bottom doesn’t makeit as comfortable for people who need arch support.
Not as many color options as some loafers.
These loafers are difficult to clean.
For a look that is both stylish and classic, the Nine West Women’s Antonecia Loafers are a great compromise. There are a variety of colors and styles that make each one a little different and special.
Easy to slip on and wear, these synthetic, animal-friendly shoes are lightly padded for comfort and wear well for hours at a time. Your feet are able to breathe and adjust throughout the day, whether you are walking, standing, or sitting.
The almond toe is a flattering look on almost everyone and fits in with avariety of styles and pants. There are wide, narrow, and regular varieties available as well for a more personalized fit. There is a ¾ inch heel on the shoe with a ¼ inch on the platform part, making them extremely comfortable without the added heat from padding.
