For years, I’ve been trying to convince myself and everyone around me that I’m not a “luxury shoe” girl. But I’m here to report that I’ve failed. The truth is I’ll almost never choose a sneaker over a classic leather loafer. The loafer has been an It shoe for years now, and though many iterations have come and gone, the timelessness of this forever style remains.
Franco Sarto has been a shoe haven for me while I continue my never-ending hunt for the most stylish footwear. This season, I haven’t been able to stop wearing the brand’s Carolynn Loafer. A crinkled patent loafer finished with smooth tassels, the Carolynn is elevating my wardrobe to luxury levels. Franco Sarto Creative Director Gionata Pagni creates every shoe with “the vision of the woman wearing it and the world she will wear it in” in mind, and this careful consideration—not to mention the high-quality materials and timeless designs—is precisely why I turn to this brand season after season. If you’re in the market for the best loafers that will stand the test of time, keep scrolling to see the Carolynn and more styles I’m loving at the moment.
