In a world where money is tight, fashion has to be versatile; fitting the many roles we occupy in work and play…

When deciding what shoe to go for I always look for the multi-use aspect; what could you realistically wear it with and to what end. In my case, I was looking for a smart shoe to wear to work with trousers or dark denim, but also wear with a white denim at the weekend.

With ‘summer’ in what’s supposed to be full swing I wanted something light and not too bulky, fitting my multi-purpose mentality.

So, introducing the ‘Baldrick Loafer’ from Jones Bootmaker:


These men’s leather loafers arrived super quick and just in time for a function which was ideal. I opted for the dark brown leather but they do also come in tan.

These 70s style loafers are light and incredibly well put together, they look as though they’d be a struggle to get on (especially with my pasty feet), but these size 10s slip on like a dream without any issues.


Snug to fit but not tight in the slightest; they provide¬†fantastic support, especially considering the woven leather style looks as though it will have too much give — it really doesn’t.

The soles are cut from real leather (sporting the Vero Cuoio stamp), cracked/patterned in appearance they allow you to glide around the office space whilst also providing grip outdoors.


The sheer level of attention to detail on these loafers¬†is fantastic, from the stitching in the heel to the lining inside the shoe itself. I’m so used to buying cheap shoes for work, but these have definitely made me reconsider how I spend my cash — at ¬£84.00 these aren’t a huge investment but definitely worthy of the price tag when compared to cheaper alternatives from other, less specialist, high street chains.
