I was enamored with the Rag & Bone Shiloh loafers at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I brought them home, had second thoughts, ordered the second size (that I had already tried in the store and rejected), and decided the loafers just aren't comfortable enough for me. Still, I thought I might find a pair of non-black neutral loafers in a chunky style, since chunky loafers seem ubiquitous at the moment. Today at Nordstrom, I saw a pair that I had admired online, and I was able to try them on. They came home with me. I will try them around the house for several days, but I am pretty sure these are going to be the keepers. They are more expensive than I usually like to spend, but I think the comfort, style, and color will be worth it in the long run. I had a bunch of Nordie Notes that I could use to create my own little sale on them, too. This muted silver color is a fave for me; I have a pair of booties in this color, and I wear them a lot.
I got my usual size in these, 7.5. They are comfortable out of the box, with light socks. No pinching, squeezing, or slipping. The leather is thick but soft. The shoes are not light but not super heavy, either. Despite the high heel and thick platform, they feel stable.
Shown here with what I wore shopping: off-white wide-leg jeans (Madewell, Perfect Vintage Wide-Leg), bandana-print silk chiffon tank (made by me).
