I’m telling you right now I’m a huge, HUGE fan of the elasticized flat. Always have been, always will be, but my problem with them is they’re often SO flat they’re not as comfortable as something with a teensy bit of lift. It looks like these have a split leather sole and I particularly like the curve of the breast of the heel, it’s not just a little stack. The hardware is nice too, it looks like a loose snaffle bit, but not in a way that tries to imitate Gucci, which I appreciate.
Incidentally, if you can’t afford an Hermes “mors ring” scarf ring (pictured here on the lovely and talented MaiTai, whose blog is nothing short of a delight) do yourself a solid and pick up a pony or miniature horse snaffle bit. You can use it in the same way and even in sterling silver, it will cost you a tenth of what a Mors ring would.
Loafers are available in pink, celery and a lovely sort of azure (sizes all limited) they’re from Raparo and are made in Italy, on sale for $79.
