Where Do Loafers Originate?
So there are two schools of thought and one is that they are from a Norwegian from the town of Aurland who travelled to North America. Whilst there, he took the Iroquois moccasin and came back to Norway to create a loafer. The love of this shoe could also have come from the local fishermen in Aurland who wore a moccasin style of shoe. They became popular in Europe first and then the states. The editor of Esquire magazine got a glimpse of them and that was what propelled them to a fashion gem for men to stand out in.
The other idea is that a British shoemaker called Wildsmith who was commissioned to make a country house shoe for King George VI. Whether he took inspiration from the moccasin is unknown but the idea was to make a comfortable shoe to get on and off easily.
