When it comes to daytime staples, there is no way around Gucci loafers. Butter-soft leather, superior fur and the distinctive horse bit detail all define the iconic designer shoes. Explore Mytheresa's hand-picked selection of the brand's loafers' collection and update your footwear edit with baroque prints and sumptuous velvet.
The heritage of the horsebit detail
Inspired by traditional moccasins and Guccio Gucci's passion for equestrian sports, the Italian label introduced its first loafer in 1953; showcasing a horse bit hardware and a streamlined silhouette. In the following years, the design underwent several variations; from round to square toes, to chunky rubber soles in the 90's.
Radiating an elegant and nostalgic feel, the flat shoe is now an unquestionable must-have in every well-sorted woman’s closet. Thanks to its immense popularity, Gucci dedicated an entire exhibition to its 60th anniversary in 2013, as well as a limited edition of loafers handcrafted from patent leathers and brightly colored tones.
How to style them
We love a pair of pointy toe stilettos to accompany our business wear, however, on days when our agenda is full of meetings, we want shoes that take us comfortably from A to B. Get style inspiration from Sienna Miller and Gigi Hadid, who match Gucci's block-heeled pumps to their corporate-approved attires. A mid-heeled option with subtle 'GG' emblem works exceptionally well with a plain A-line skirt and long-sleeved silk blouse to master a feminine, professional look. Alternatively, team black horse bit flats with a tailored pantsuit, white shirt and delicate women's watch.
On the weekend, elevate a relaxed ensemble with pearl-adorned loafers. Pair the eye-catching flat shoes with vintage jeans, a logo-printed Gucci T-shirt and crossbody bag for both comfort and trendsetting style. Similarly, a patterned brocade design is the perfect choice for adding a touch of color.
